Pros: Work good non-stop for 2.5 years connected to a UPS. Warranty is for 5 years so that's good. Not sure if it's worth paying the shipping fees for warranty.
Cons: Died by itself without any warning. Started smelling like burned silicon and then shut off. Power supply tested shows no signs of life.
Overall Review: I purchased a thermaltake with solid Japanese capacitors. Let's see how long this one lasts.
Pros: USB 3.0 and 3TB Drive Support. Solid construction. Easy turn on/off button at the front.
Cons: I purchased 4 of these drives. They have a firmware bug! You will loose all your data if you enable NCQ! Google it, there's a firmware fix from Samsung. Stay away from these drives. Don't go through what I went through to get my data back through painstaking recovery software. Is not worth it, pay a little extra and get another model that is more reliable.
Pros: Price, storage size
Cons: I used this to backup tons of data for a server migration. After a couple of days the drive was dead. I checked the power supply and everything else. I concluded it was the enclosure. So I break it open and get the drive out, connected it to a SATA port and got my data back. I will order another enclosure that supports 3TB drives.
Pros: Silent. Enough air flow to keep everything kool
Pros: Great motherboard. Gigabyte is solid/high quality. paired with a Phenon X4 Black Edition, 8Gb RAM and two Gigabyte HD 5870's, I am happy gamer.
Cons: It doesn't make frapuccinos.
Pros: I purchased two of these in Crossfire. Work great, Gigabyte makes solid products. Fast, reliable, cool. No problems.
Cons: Like every other video card, if you put them in crossfire the second card does not have enough breathing room for the cooling fans so it runs a lot hotter then the one on top of it. But these does not compromise stability.
Pros: You must consider the price when reviewing this laptop. it is a good value. The screen is not of high quality but overall it works great, just remove all the crapware.
Cons: Screen can be better
Pros: Works great in vmware, solid and fast.
Cons: was not free
Pros: Works great. simple basic, cheap. nothing more nothing less.
Pros: Have 3 of these, fast, reliable, firmware 1.5 works great. I use them for desktop and also VMWARE ESX 4.0U1 in RAID.
Cons: Still expensive - prices need to come down.
Pros: It's a cable and it works as suppose to. Solid.
Cons: Wasn't free, doesn't make decaf mochachinos.
Pros: works perfectly fine.
Pros: this little guy works fantastically well! Strong signal through walls, easy drivers for Windows Vista (32bit) overall excellent performance and value.
Pros: great, fast, quiet, compatible, low-cost.
Cons: It doesn't make frappuccinos!
Pros: works as advertised. The USB connector is connected behind my HTPC case in a cabinet and still works fine - excellent range.
Cons: You may have to press the FN key to get it to connect sometimes.
Overall Review: If you first don't get it to connect at the BIOS level. Connect it in windows. After this, it will work all the way from the bios level.
Pros: works like a charm.
Pros: Works great, runs at 54C temp when idle with stock fan. fast enough for HTPC and playing blueray movies from ISO images.
Cons: The CPU fan is 3 pin not 4 pin, so you can not use the BIOS option for the AMD feature of Cool'n'quiet. In other words the CPU fan will run 100% all the time making lot's of noise. You can use a free program called speedfan to adjust the speed.
Pros: Works great with Windows Vista 32 Media Center.
Cons: It wasn't free and can not control any human beings to turn them off.
Pros: I use this board for a HTPC. Solid, quality, great documentation. HDMI Audio works perfect out of the box with Vista 32bit.
Cons: Was not free and didn't make non-fat, decaf cappuccinos.
Pros: The case is great., roomy and well thought out. 3 chambers for heat isolation, fits the power supply good, individual fan speed controls build-in, fits full size PCI-E cards, 2 hard drives, silent, stays kool.
Cons: Like all other users said, the LCD is of the lowest quality. The backlight is very bright so you can barely make out the actual letters. If you turn the contrast down then you don't see anything at all. For $150+ case, it's a shame that it comes with a the cheapest LCD money can buy - probably costs less than $3. From what I understand the original Fussion series cases came with a high quality LCD but then Antec changed to the el cheapo ones. I just don't want to go through the hassle of undoing my HTPC build, RMA and redo it with another case, so I'll keep it.
Overall Review: Shame on Antec for using the lowest quality LCD for an otherwise great HTPC case.
Pros: Fast, reasonably priced. Seems reliable, only time will tell.
Cons: It wasn't free
Pros: It's a cable, it works perfectly fine. It's cheap.
Cons: It wasn't free ;-)
Pros: Great Router, reliable, fast and full of features.
Cons: It wasn't free :-)
Pros: Fast and reliable. Perfect for laptops or servers that need fast disk I/O dor database.
