Pros: great case with great air flow to keep all your internal components cool. plus I love how they have ported the case for liquid cooling or even refrigerant.
Cons: wish it came with a second hard drive rack but definitely not a deal breaker.
Overall Review: BUY IT.......
Pros: good power supply for the last seven months
Cons: went out after little over seven months. Pretty sad.
Overall Review: i will rma this one out with antec but i hate their rma process and cutomer service.
Pros: not sure yet i have not recieved the shirt yet but i do hope that it is fashionable, lol.
Cons: i think i might have to return it and get one sent to me in my size. XL Tall. The fun part about being tall and muscular is that you always have to have things bigger and more durable.
Pros: fast, reliable, works with the nforce 4 sli controller ,and they work well in a raid 1 configuration.
Cons: I wish that i would have bought these the first time around instead of hassling with another manufacturer's set of drives.
Overall Review: If you plan on running any of the nforce 4 sli chipset motherboard you will want to run with this manufacturer because their drives WILL work well with the nforce 4 sli chipset/controller. here is my setup: A8N-SLI PREMIUM MOTHERBOARD, (2) HITACHI 80 GIG SATA 2, (1) WESTERN DIGITAL 250 GIG SATA 2, (2) EVGA GEFORCE 6600 GT, ASUS DVD BURNER, SONY CD/DVD COMBO DRIVE
Pros: great video card for doing whatever you want or need to do. i have two of these and they ran great in sli mode. i say they ran great because i have had issues with the motherboard not working correctly. darn nforce 4 chipset.
Overall Review: great video card
Pros: awesome amount of data storage space. quick data retrieval. outstanding deal for what you get in storage capacity and data transfer speed. granted it is not a raptor or scsi drive, but honestly for its size and speed it is all one would need to do most any job. oh as far as heat i have not seen the outstanding claims of heat issues. mine is running nice and cool.
Cons: none as of yet.
Overall Review: buy it and you will like what you get for your money.
Pros: great features offered, board has a nice layout, an abundance of everything needed for a high end system.
Cons: the nforce 4 sli chipset. i do not like how it was set up and implimented. also i am not impressed with the nvidia tech support either. they need to revise their driver software to better work with sata 2 drives and also better integration with other onboard chipset controllers.
Overall Review: if they ever get this thing totally fixed it will be a terrific board. i would then buy another one providing they fixed all the gliches with the nforce 4 sli chipset.
Pros: the drive size is a plus. the drive works great as a sata 1 drive. one of the smartest things maxtor did was to make the drive sata 1 & 2 compatable. also the 16megs of onboard cache really helps the drive access data fast.
Cons: the drive does work. only problem is when it comes to windows fully recognizing the drive. i constantly had to tell windows to find the hard drive. this problem is due to the interaction between windows and the nforce 4 sli chipset which controls the standard sata 2 ports. bare in mind i am running an asus A8N-SLI DELUXE motherboard. i am not implying that it is either asus's fault or maxtor's fault in anyway that the drive is not working properly. i think it is due to the fact that the technology needs some refinement when it comes to the SATA 2 drives interfacing with the chipsets and windows.
Overall Review: newegg was really great in helping with any and all problems. thanks again newegg for such great customer service.
