Pros: Got it for my wife and she loves it. Got it on sale.
Cons: It does have problems with the PDF format. It overlaps words. I wrote tech support on the problem. I don't know if it's the PDF's fault or the E-book. For now I just had to convert all the PDF books to TXT format and it is readable.
Overall Review: Nice offering compared to the Sony which cost another $100
Pros: Looks pretty
Cons: Mine keeps saying it is rebuilding, but after it is done I just get a nice blank black screen. Of course it worked about 90 percent of the time in the first 3 months. I have reloaded the firmware, reformatted, everything they advice, but I still only have a pretty paperweight
Overall Review: Beware of the Creative warranty. It has a 1 year warranty, but.......... after 3 months there is a $25 Labor charge for them to check it, to see that it does not work, payable up front and of course you get to pay for shipping and handling and insurance. So if you have money to gamble with, go for it. I will never buy another Creative product again, and I own quite a few.
Pros: This is one sweet case. Granted it is not NASA quality, but it is really sharp looking. I now moved 5 T drives out of my case, that should cool it down some and I raided the four drives that are still in there. The case goes into sleep mode along with my computer, is silent and the access times are quite good. I love it.
Cons: The door hides the access lights and as far as I can tell is not removable. That is minor. I think it would look good with the drawers exposed.
Overall Review: I wish I would have found this before I bought the Venus T4U enclosure, but they actually work great together. One for SATA and one for IDE. Great storage capacity.
Pros: Works great, even in my noisy truck (duel exhaust). My son is ordering one now. Works as promised. Charger not origninal but Verizon, but it works.
Cons: No manual, but I downloaded the PDF from their website. Best bang for the buck that I have seen. Who need the stupid packaging it comes in.
Overall Review: Will probably buy one for the wife.
