Pros: I love the apple style keyboard. I like the layout and that the keys slighty bigger and not as high. I have two Mac Book Pros and love the keyboards on them. I got this for work. I am a programmer and type all day long; I got feg up with the Dell keyboard supplied by the company. My hands hurt by the end of the day.
This works great with Windows which is what I use at work. I had to map the Print Screen button to another button since this keyboard does not have one but that took 5 seconds.
USB ports on both sides is nice.
This things is heavier than you expect. It has nice padded feet and stays where you put it. The cord is long and a thick wire gauge; just great build quality.
I will buy this keyboard every time I need a new keyboard, I love it.
Cons: When I type really fast a sometimes a hear wht soungs like loose change under the keyboard. It is hardly noticeable and does not effect the perfomrance in any way.
It is white so it might not look clean for long.
Overall Review: If you are considering this product buy it. I recommend it.
Pros: Fast while it works, got it on sale.
Cons: Drive failed within 4-6 hours of use. I have other ADATA SSD that have given me no trouble at all so I grabbed this one on sale. I have a feeling it is something to do with the controller in this card. I was moving over the RMA period and they only do replacement only. Why would I want another one if the first one was so bad?
You cannot update the firmware via USB.
Overall Review: I will wait for the Samsung drives to come down is price, they have slightly slower read/writes and I/O, but they also make their own controller and much lower failure rates. On the other hand they are $$$.
Pros: This case is awesome. The last "hardcase" I had for the 3G scratched the back, was bulky, and the screen protector was a joke. This case has felt on the inside to prevent that scratching. This thing is sweet, it's a taylored fit, the phone stays put and does not bounce around. The screen protector is excellent it is clear and does not "stick", I don't think I will need to buy the stick on screen protectors that saved my 3G. The belt clip is super secure although I may rarely use it.
Overall Review: This is the most weel made case I have ever seen. Yes it does make the phone slightly bigger, but no bigger that any other phone case would make it.
Bottom line I feel safe with my iPhone is this case.
Pros: I used this drive for a ultra-low power usage server, around 35watts average power. This disk was bought for the speed/price per gigabyte. The other tranditional HD's are allowed to spin down to save power.
Cons: price for size.
I have mine as / , with 28% disk usage after all software installed, DNS, NFS.
traditional HD's share the space burden mounted at /home and the NFS share
Overall Review: speed claims are accurate ubuntu's built in bench marking tools grab my Samsung spin point at:
147MB/s average read
102 MB/s avg write
13.9 ms latency
245 MB/s avg read
147 MB/s avg write
.3 ms avg latency
Pros: It came packed well
Cons: I don't even know where to begin... bought to use with Dell file server in RAID 0. First time start up it froze in it's own bios, every time I booted the Alarm was on until I pulled the power plug, (did not pass POST) removed the card, reset the card, round two same thing. After trying everything I thought maybe it's too hot so I pointed a 21" box fan at the open case....it works!!! Bought PCI fan to place next to card to keep it cool, works for 5-7 minutes before OS install fails and reports PCI hardware malfunction system will halt, BIOS will not recognize the card until 10-30 minute cool down. LINUX drivers are USLESS, windows drivers work but card fails before the install finishes. This is the second HIGH POINT card that i've received both have failed.
Overall Review: You should be able to restore your loss data with floppies before you get this card working, let alone stable.
Pros: Upgraded Macbook Pro 2.4 GHZ core 2 duo, no errors
Pros: Good they stay in like they should.
Cons: one of the two i ordered had a bad clip
Overall Review: should have ordered a few more
Pros: I gave this 5 eggs because it did exactly what I bought it for which was to add SATA ports to a computer that only had IDE connectors. In this situation no drivers from the cd were required to see the drive, format it and install windows XP, I did however install the driver for the CD after the fresh install to make sure I was getting all the possible speed out of this card.
Cons: this is not a RAID controller no matter how hard the market it, it may mirror your disks ok or make a non system array for storage ok but try making a RAID 0 array that this product claims to support I promise IT WILL NOT BOOT!
Overall Review: Great for a easy mirror though your existing hardware will do that too, NOT a real RAID controller, remember a REAL RAID controller requires no software, and is invisible to your OS.
Pros: Upgraded a computer that had IDE hard drives, rosewell sata controller and this drive computer will only be used to streaming movies drive size doesn't matter, system performance increase is obvious over PATA
this thing is thin about half as thick as a normal drive really looks nice
Cons: only 8 mb cache but it's a 35 drive!!!
Pros: $89.00, Samsung has more dense platters therefore fewer platters, translates to lower power needs and faster seek times. I two of these in a RAID 0 array booting Ubuntu and running windows 7 and plenty of other OS's. I'm very fond of Samsung's hard drives both 2.5" and 3.5" spinpoint drives
Cons: when the drives are put to sleep(stop spinning) by the OS is takes a good second or two for them to spin back up, once they're up they are lightning, this doesn't bother me but It could bother some
