Works Great for Cloneing Drives
Pros: I needed to clone my 40GB Maxtor to a 100 GB Maxtor drive. I first tried this with North Ghost 2003 and it blew up half way thru. Next I tried it with MaxBlast4 (this is the software that comes with the Maxtor hardrive). I though it had worked but it corrupted many windows files. Then I tried Acronis True Image 9.0, wow works great, super easy menu and all files copied over perfectly - what more can you ask!
Cons: Be sure to update the software after installing. Someone else complained about installing the updates, but I had no trouble, very simple to do just hit update in tools menu and it take you to thier website. You'll need your product code for this.
Overall Review: The product serial number is not on the box or CD or even on the sleve of the CD holder, you'll find it in a 4 page booklet in the box. So as soon as you can write down the code onto your CD sleve or you may accidentaly throw away the booklet.
Big and Bright and worked right out of the box
Pros: Hooked this up to my HP 6570b laptop with docking station and worked with default Win 7 pro drivers and no dead pixels - Big and BRIGHT, just what I need. What really surprised me was how light this is. I had my old VewSonic 22 inch on a mechanical arm and was afraid that this might be to heavy but it is lighter than my 22 inch Amazing!!!
Cons: Not so much a Con as a warning: The power switch is a clear plastic tab hanging down on the bottom right almost invisible, does not light up until you turn it on. Now the Con: the adjustment switches are hidden and next to the power switch under the frame you can not see them or really feel them unless you turn the monitor on its side, plus the adjustment are not real user friendly - but on the bright side just how many times do you make adjustments, with my last monitor I adjusted it when I got it once and that was 4 years ago so not a big issue but I hope they change this design in the future.
Overall Review: BIG and BRIGHT and works right out of the box - what more can you ask for - another great deal from Newegg!
Plug and Play all the way !
Pros: I just installed it and turned on my PC (Win XP home edition) and it worked. Service Pack 2 already has all the drivers for it. It doesn't get any easier than this!
Cons: None. No Problems to report !
Overall Review: Has extra USB and Firewire connectors inside the card.
Easy to setup -USB Plug and Play all the way
Pros: USB - Plugged it into my Win XP PC and it works everytime. What more can I say - no hassles. I use a Maxtor 100 GB. It even has a built in fan that really works and keeps a good air flow keeping the hard drive cool.
Cons: Like all these enclosures I wish they made the ribbon cable and power cord for the Hard drive would be longer so it would be easier to unattach/attach the hard drive (my only reason for not giving it 5 stars)
Overall Review: I like the clear plastic case because you can if anything has come loose.
