Pros: Easy to use, fast, works as promissed
Have several, all work
Cons: None. Don't use for cloning, we old never use ant external devices for cloninh
Pros: With VGA, DVI, and HDMI on and inexpensive card, that use low power with no extra power needed to be plugged into the card what more could I ask for? This card has no fan and is absolutely silent, not sure what the other reviewer meant when he complained about coil whine. Includes half card brackets for slim line computers.
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: Would recommend this to all users that have stock Dell's or HP's that have minimal power supplies in them that need extra video output. Won't power high end games, but great for most business workstations.
Pros: Features list at price value good
Cons: Worked for less than a week , then all USB ports failed at boot, even back USB 2 and on board USB 2. Thus unable to access bios other than with PS2 keyboard. Tried updating BIOS from internet option, seemed to work reports new BIOS version, but upon reboot, required to enter BIOS where you are automatically taken to the Flash 3 utility to update bios, which does not allow you to exit, a continual loop.
Overall Review: Using Windows 7, perhaps may have worked with Windows 10, but at this point I can't even get the option to install Windows 10 as every restart requires me to enter Flash 3 Utility which won't allow me to exit. Even tried the clear cmos. Others have reported similar problems, board came with BIOS version 601, internet BIOS update reports ver 1807 is now installed, if I could only get the USB ports to work or get past the required F1 key at boot.
Pros: Works for awhile
Cons: Only works for a while! Have puchased 8 of these over the past year, all for servers with RAID5. Three of them have failed (drives disappear reseating does not resolve issue). Removing drives from cage and hooking directly to with SATA cable to motherboard, brought missing drives back.
Plastic hinged doors are fragile not designed for frequent opening and closing.
Overall Review: I will not be using these in future builds, and am currently removing them from the other servers they are installed in, just too risky. Since warranty is only for same item no use returning to manufactuer.
Pros: Great drive for servers running RAID configuration.
Cons: Have purchased over 20 and only one DOA due to poor packaging. Can only order one due to current shortage.
Overall Review: I realize that flooding in Thailand has doubled to tripled the price of WesternDigital & Seagate hard drives in the past several weeks. But what is frustrating is for Newegg to limit this product to only one. Ok if you are replacing a drive, but a real pain if you are setting up a new server in Raid configurations and need several!
