Pros: nicely put together, this is easy to setup and use, setup was fast, the extra outside fan is controllable. the best part was that i had a couple of drives that other ide-usb devices would not work with, but this one did so flawlessly.
Cons: non that i have found yet
Pros: this card does all my gaming and does it well
Cons: it is kinda long, so make sure you have room in your case for it, i had a problem with my SATA plugs on the mobo being covered by this card
Pros: the placement of the pcix slot gives lotsa room for haveing an aftermarket heatsink for your CPU
Cons: be aware that if you have a large video card (as i do, gtx260) you WILL be covering some of your SATA slots with your video card, so have some short-ended right-angle SATA connectors available
Overall Review: would give it 4 or more stars if SATA had been better placed
Pros: runs like a champ, does everything i want it to do
Cons: heatsink is barely adequate, get an aftermarket one, the one that comes with, not doesnt do a good job, the equipment to lock it to the cpu is below standard
Overall Review: would have given it 5 eggs if not for heatsink being so poor
Pros: this item does exactly what it says it does, it takes 2 drives, i put in 2 seagate 1TB drives, and formats them as either singles or striped and you then can use them as you wish, i have had them hooked to several computers, with no problems or need of any drivers
Cons: none really
Pros: takes any SATA drive, i have used it with everything from a WD 160 GB SATA I, to a 1TB Seagate SATA II, and it has performed flawlessly, i have3 accessed drives, and formatted them, and transferred to and from them in this handy little unit.
Cons: a small fan inside would have been nice, but since it has a button on both the front and back, just turn it off when you turn off your other items,
Overall Review: i have left drives running in it for weeks at a time, not accessing them, but powered up and ready to be accessed, and have not had any problems getting into them
Pros: does exactly as it says it does, it took my two 1TB seagate HDs and created one large 2 TB drive, holds all my media and personal files, and set itself up nice and neatly
Cons: fan can sometines be somewhat noisy, and as previous reviewer said, LED is kinda bright
Overall Review: i didnt realize it was a JBOD until it did its stuff thinking of buying another.
