Pros: Looks good in the black case; installs Data fine.

Cons: NO AUDIO CABLES INCLUDED (2 or 4 pin). Just a drive and a beige bezel. Talk about cutting corners to save pennies... jeez!

Overall Review: Might be great for an upgrade, but do not buy for new builds as it is not a complete kit. What moron at Lite-On decided a DVD payer wouldn't require audio???

So far, so good!

Pros: Pros: Love the heat spreader, but came with 2 options for heat dissipation, came with a bracket, nicely packaged, SIMPLE install and partition, PRICE is amazing for a 4 TB drive.

Cons: Cons: Product- none so far! Should be fine given that we are swapping from an older 500 GB platter drive.

Overall Review: Remember that you may have to enable M.2 in your UEFI BIOS before rebooting if you have certain motherboards and you should be fine. My mobo had the M.2 port disabled by default, but I researched that before the install and had everything squared away. I plan to install the OS on this and ditch my platter drive this weekend. Hoping for much faster speeds... and loving the extra space!

Nice and easy external drive

Pros: Looks good. Nice and compact, plenty fast for what I need it for, good size and price.

Cons: None. It is exactlyt what it says it is and works perfectly.

Overall Review: I got this to use for back ups, as my wife is a photographer and she has a HUGE amount of pics and videos. It came ready to go out of the box, but I did take the advice and format as NTFS before using it. 4 TB and the price was good, as I got it on sale. I would highly recommend!

SSD for older architecture!

Pros: EASY install Works GREAT!

Cons: No regrets!!

Overall Review: Needed an SSD for my son's PC to try and overcome some video artifacts in the Avengers game. It didn't work, but that isn't really the drive's fault. It worked great! Installed, formatted and ran like a charm. Built out a new PC for my son and this is now his Data drive. If you don't have an M2 slot but want the advantages of SSD, this is the ticket.

Pros: Easy install Very quiet Great cooling Looks good, too!

Cons: Not really any... no lights.

Overall Review: Needed a replacement fan for my son's PC. Ordered a different fan that just didn't spin, so I got this one. Should have gotten this one first! GREAT fan!
