Most Favorable Review

Works great.. Games look amazing...

PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB Limited Edition - Star Wars Battlefront II Bundle
PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB Limited Edition - Star Wars Battlefront II Bundle

Pros: 4K games look amazing so far..

Cons: Did find out the hard way that this thing doesn't have a 4K Blu-Ray drive... but my own fault for not doing my homework first.

Most Critical Review

Be Leary!!

Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Highest Capacity available.

Cons: About once every two weeks, the drives vanish from my system.. I have to take them out, and remove the controller boards, and clean the contacts. They work just fine again for another two weeks of so.. Maybe "Green" isn't the best options for reliability.

Overall Review: I didn't but these from Newegg, and didn't RMA them either, too much hassle. Probably will not buy them again.

Pros: Shipped fast, well packaged..

Cons: None.

Overall Review: was unable to test due to me ordering the wrong size trays, but the return process was simple and painless short of having to pay for shipping it back.

Nice Enclosure - Good Options

EAGLE Consus ET-CSDU2J-BK DUAL 3.5" SATA I/II to USB 2.0 2-BAY JBOD External Enclosure
EAGLE Consus ET-CSDU2J-BK DUAL 3.5" SATA I/II to USB 2.0 2-BAY JBOD External Enclosure

Pros: For what it does, this enclosure is great, I'll buy another one in a heartbeat.

Cons: The fan is loud, and didn't move much air, I replaced it with a fan from our local Radio Shack, and it moved more air, and was a lot cooler.

Overall Review: They should have two fans in there to move the heat out better. Will prolly mod the case to include a font fan as well, and rubber grommits to absorb the fan noise too.
