Pros: USB 3.0
Works for 2.5" and 3.5" drives
Cons: Really bright light
Ejection lever is a little tricky and almost catapults your hard drive. (Always use two hands)
Overall Review: I like it.
Pros: -USB 3.0
-Hasn't failed. Had it for about 7 months so far
Cons: -None so far
Overall Review: If you delete the Seagate Dashboard 2.0 software from the drive, it'll take a bit of searching to find it online. Happened to me because I thought it'd be easier to find. Luckily, I got it back and it's working perfectly again!
-Not as tacky looking as the other drives
Cons: -Was noisy at first, then I upgraded to Windows 8 and now it's completely silent. It used to make a very high pitched noise (most likely only kids can hear it) when it would read or write a disc
Overall Review: -I've only had one bad burn out of over 100. 99% success rate!
Pros: -Quad core
-Stays under 36C even with full load with Cooler Master 212 Evo
Cons: -Not overclockable, only to 3.3 GHz
Overall Review: I was debating whether or not to get this or the unlocked one, so I went with this. If you don't need to overclock, this is the best bang for the buck. You save a lot of money and it still performs VERY well!
Cons: Audio doesn't work. It just doesn't work at all. I updated the BIOS and it still won't work. I've installed the audio drivers from both ASRock's website and the disc, but it still doesn't work. Neither the AC'97 nor the HDAudio cable for my front panel will work. And the back ports don't work either. Really annoys me
Pros: Cools VERY well for the price. Even under 100% load (converting audio with all 4 cores) this never let my Ivy Bridge i5 go above 36C.
Cons: A little tricky to get on
May be too big for some cases. Has barely any clearance left in a Rosewill Challenger U3.
Cons: 5400 RPM, but hey, it's a 1TB hard drive for your laptop.
Pros: Hasn't failed
Pros: Ranks 7.7 on the Windows Experience Index
Low profile, more room for heatsink
Cons: Not free
Doesn't look as cool as other RAM, but why does it matter?
Pros: USB 3.0, fast, no cap
Cons: Keyring hole is too small to fit any ol' keyring. I was really disappointed when i got it and I couldn't replace my USB 2.0 flash drive with this on my keychain. :(
Overall Review: May or may not be your color style. I don't care, it's a flippin' flash drive.
Pros: Large capacity, low price
Cons: Nothing so far
Overall Review: Not much to say, haven't had anything bad happen to it yet
