As advertised... VERY FAST
Pros: It's fast and as advertised. It's BOOTABLE!
Cons: Like most drives on the market now. the 4k speeds leave much to be desired. It also warms up a little, not much, but it's noticeable.
Overall Review: On USB 3.0, formatted NTFS with a 4k cluster size and a 100MB test, I got this with Crystal Disk Mark: Sequential Read : 104.353 MB/s Sequential Write : 43.794 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 94.590 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 7.036 MB/s Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 10.298 MB/s [ 2514.1 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 0.176 MB/s [ 43.1 IOPS] Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 10.666 MB/s [ 2604.1 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 0.177 MB/s [ 43.3 IOPS]
Pros: Well none I suppose as it came to me dead and inoperable.
Cons: I received a dead mouse on my doorstep, if this was from my cat, I wouldn't be so upset, bet it was from newegg or gigabyte, I don't know which party is to blame. More likely Gigabyte though as the shipping box and product package looked undamaged.
Overall Review: I am very disappointed. Now I have to return it :(
Pros: It's universal. AVRCP and A2DP for ultimate multimedia capabilities! It paired with my ipad 3 and i could get audio to it from the ipad! bluetooth 3.0 for great signal fidelity! it functions in around 30 feet from the device and within that distance holds the signal without much or any degradation in audio quality or loss of signal.
Cons: None that I know of. It operates just fine.
Overall Review: It's pricey, but for what you get, it's worth it. YGWYPF (You get what you pay for) I'm very pleased with the headset. It's bluetooth 3.0 and seems to work with everything. The battery life is also pretty decent, what's more appealing is the charging of the headset, IT'S SUPER FAST. Charges to almost full in 30 minutes.
Pros: Unit is really Quiet. My 280w PSU is louder than this thing. Noise dB is like an 8 or 10, its like a low whisper. Remarkable! ATI Override (overclocking); 320 Stream Processes. Oh and did I mention 280Watt Power Supply! Low-power Consumption.
Cons: The 4650 chipset on the DDR2 (not GDDR2, Newegg's Typo) is somewhat of a bottleneck, but not that bad. Temps stable @ 50C; under load around 67C. For me thats somewhat hot for a LP video card.
Overall Review: The heatsink on this unit is almost non-existent. The fan does all the work which is prolly why the temps are up. ***Important*** Install from the CD FIRST!! Reboot. Than use the driver off ATI's website. "Catalyst Install Manager" kept crashing untill I did it that way.
Seen at a Tech Shop
Pros: Besides looking like a Borg assimilated Subwoofer, I'd say from my inspection of the case it's perfect for a mobile gaming pc, or HTPC, or consumer-based server. The front intake fan allows air to flow in, through the system then out via the exhaust vents; where one could put two more fans to increase circulation. NOISE in non-existent compared to other cases. Also, I thought the idea of allowing a standard ATX PSU 1000W+ is wild (That is one of the ingredients to a gaming PC) The second is the more than ample room for a FULL-Sized Graphic Card. From what I saw you have about a Foot and a half to lie a graphic card down. WOW
Cons: I was only in the shop for a Half an Hour so I dont know the true cons. Sorry
Overall Review: There is no review for it so felt I needed to allow my experience to hopefully influence a future purchaser. In other words this case looks promising.
