Terrible

Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2BD/64GB 2.5" Desktop Bundle 64GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast while it lasts

Cons: I thought that SSD were suppose to be more stable but this drive isn't even recognized by my computer anymore. Minimal increase in load times

Night and Day

Cisco Small Business 200 Series SLM2024T-NA Smart Gigabit Switch SG200-26
Cisco Small Business 200 Series SLM2024T-NA Smart Gigabit Switch SG200-26

Pros: All I can say is WOW. I was borrowing a Dell gigabit switch from a tech company after my 10/100 was going in and out. The Dell was getting hammered and couldn't bring up x-ray images quick enough With Dell gigabit: 3-5 second single image access 10-20 second 17 image access With Cisco 0-2 second single image access 0-5 second 17 image access This is using the exact same server/router/firewall Smart sensing technology is literally "plug and play"

Cons: I could say the price but this is so cheap for a switch. Server grade stuff is just crazy expensive in general.

LOL at the prices

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Great Speeds! Have 5 in raid and I trust these drives Got 5 of these drives for the price of two now. It is good that I purchased as soon as I heard that the HDD manufacturing will be slowed (1.5 months ago)

Cons: Not worth it to buy HDDs until the price goes back down There are some newer drives around the same price point that are faster but I would question the longevity of the drives until they can be tested thoroughly

Overall Review: Right now is a rough time for hard drives because of the tsunami that flooded plants so prices are nuts

Pros: CHEAP! Apple will charge a fortune for this great upgrade that you can do yourself. no more lockups with newer versions of OSX

Cons: well I started with 2gb which wasn't fun...

Tough little drive

Seagate FreeAgent Go 500GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive ST905003FBA2E1-RK Royal Blue
Seagate FreeAgent Go 500GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive ST905003FBA2E1-RK Royal Blue

Pros: More space than you should need in a backup Tough metal exterior Some can call it stylish only takes up 1 USB port Short cable(some may say it is a con) but perfect for a laptop

Cons: Not sure if it is a con but it only requires 1 usb port which means it isn't really "powered" so maybe it would run faster with two like my other drive?
