MITSUMI Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal USB 2.0 Internal USB 2.0 digital card reader with Floppy Drive Model FA404M BLK

Pros: Not expensive. Fast transfer with memory cards. Two devices in one. No problems didn't need the disk. Works w/ Vista RC1

Cons: Not much, floppy is regular cable not usb.

Overall Review: I haven't tried the floopy drive or cards other than SD and CF so I can' comment on that but I might not ever use it.

Good case

Pros: Not expensive. Good airflow w/ quiet fans. Lots of room. No problems. Looks great.

Cons: Could have a little better build quality on the inside but its still good. A larger diagram in the manual would be nice.

Overall Review: I was looking for a good looking, sleek, basic case w/ good airflow and I've found it.

Awesome

Pros: Comes with software. Fast. Don't pay too much extra for lightscribe.

Cons: Nero version doesn't work w/ Vista and costs to upgrade. Has had some problems reading some files on disc but the are probably scratched or bad burns. Could be quieter.

Overall Review: I haven't tried the lightscibe feature yet since Nero doesn't run.

No problems.

Pros: Fast. Price isn't bad for .5 TB. No major problems. Will be adding a second one for RAID array in the future.

Cons: Could be quieter, its the loudest part of my system. This might just be my case and not having rubber bushings.

Overall Review: Remember that the drive doesn't come w/ anything.

Works great.

Pros: good cost. Works great in my sister's Emachine. Works much better than the orginal memory.

Cons: Could only use this memory and didn't combine at all with the orginal memory. Performance is much better so I don't care.
