No Server 2003/2008 Driver Support?
Pros: Looks nice, pretty lights inside, even a temp display on the board (not that you'll ever see it unless you have a case with a window).
Cons: ONLY XP & VISTA 32/64BIT DRIVER SUPPORT! Unbelievable! Nothing for Server 2003/2008 on the install CD or their site. SATA port placement is unreasonable being they're at a 90 degree angle.
Overall Review: Guess the machine I built with this board is going to have to be my media box instead of my domain controller/dns/dhcp/ftp box. Very disappointing.
Pros: Time between pressing power and being able to shoot is almost instantaneous. Quality photos...I did not find pictures to be blurry at all - takes amazing photos for a PnS. It has the surface area of a credit card - super compact, which is what caught my eye first about it. HD video from such a tiny thing is pretty impressive. Metal casing is perfect for concert-goers that like to be up front and in the action - super durable.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: I bought this so I didn't have to carry around my bulky Nikon D50 - though I fear the Nikon won't get much use anymore. This camera has great features for the price and surely won't let you down if you're looking for a quality PnS.
Why choose anything else?
Pros: Consistent, dependable power from (in my opinion) one of the best PSU manufacturers out there. This thing is almost completely silent and delivers exactly what I expected from a PC P&C PSU.
Cons: I found I had an excess of extra cables I didn't use; for smaller cases this might be somewhat cumbersome.
Overall Review: Amazing PSU - why bother going with anything else?
Good high-capacity storage
Pros: 931.51GB usable storage; transfer rates are good (50~60MB/s) on initial large file transfers using Vista x64 and it seems very stable. I've heard next to zero noise from this drive as well.
Cons: None that I've encountered thus far.
Overall Review: Technology seems very sound and after quite a bit of research, this drive seemed to me the front-runner for extra high-capacity storage. I bought 2 from Newegg and will probably buy a few more.
