Hi-yo Too Much Silver, Away!
Pros: Comfortable to wear and use Solid construction Reasonable price
Cons: Do they really need to be so shiny?
Overall Review: I just received these shoes today, and although I haven't used them much yet, I will say that they demolish the pair of Avias I bought at [another retailer, cough] back in January. They're comfortable to wear and the soft, thick soles ensure a pleasant trip every time you walk. On the downside, the reflective silver cover isn't so comfortable for the eyes. I wish they came in a less ostentatious black, but I'm willing to commit a fashion faux pas for the price.
Good luck, you'll need it
Pros: Reasonably priced, offers RAID support if you need it
Cons: Stops your PC cold at boot up, offers RAID support even if you don't want it
Overall Review: Got an older computer? This card will grant it access to high-capacity hard drives, but it comes with a price. I'm not talking about the twenty dollars it costs, either... every time you boot your system with a SATA drive attached, it will come to a screeching halt at the RAID BIOS. Your only options? Either enter the BIOS or unplug the hard drive and reset your machine. This effectively makes it impossible to boot from that drive, and makes it needlessly difficult to use as a secondary drive. Want to turn off the RAID BIOS? Too bad, you're stuck with it! You're better off investing in a more expensive card... the added convenience is worth the price.
