Pros: Runs smooth, even on 3 very different machines. No problems upgrading XP, just have to take your time and re-setup a couple things. These were for my 2 brothers and 1 family machine, they all love 7. It is much more stable then XP, no more lockups like before for them.
Overall Review: I agree with everyone else, if you put your Tech Knowledge at High then you shouldn't be having to many problems. Also to the guy who dumped this for OSX with the promise of "no more maintenance, no more spyware, no more viruses" good luck with that.
Pros: Outstanding drives! Great capacity, great speed and not a bad price. I have purchased 5 of these drives so far and plan to buy more as needed. One for our family PC to store Pics/Vids/Music/etc. One for my rig for much of the same storage needs. And 3 for our Home Server for backups.
Cons: One drive lost it partition and became RAW. Was able to easily recover the files and reformat. Not really a con, just a set back. Probably my fault anyway.
Overall Review: If you need a large drive with great performance this is the one.
Pros: Cheap. Using to house a P4 Home Server. Fans moves a good amount of air and are nearly silent when set on low using switch on back. Two 120MM fan mounts in the front, currently using one fan up front to cool HD's. Dust filter in front.
Overall Review: Bottom mount PSU, make sure your cables are long enough.
Pros: Great Card. Currently using with two 1TB drives on P4 hardware for use with Windows Home Server. No problems so far.
Cons: Had to flash to Non-Raid firmware. Not a huge chore, but others may have trouble.
Overall Review: Still a great card, even with having to deal with the firmware hiccup.
Pros: Have had this drive for roughly 6 months. It replaced an almost dead 500GB My Book which lasted me about 4 years. I kept the Raid 1 setting which is what i bought it for. Drive transfers files plenty fast for my uses. Mostly holds Music, Videos, Pictures, and other assorted files. Over all a great drive with only a couple cons.
Cons: 1. Takes a while to come back from being asleep. 2. Like others said, only USB 2.0, but thats fine with me. 3. Now this is important, It Does Not Let My Computer Boot While It Is Plugged In, I have it plugged directly into My Asus P4800D-X motherboard onboard USB. It will get the the first splash screen then the drive will flash the light a little faster than normal and it wont do anything. This hasnt been a big deal because the computer never gets turned off. But if restart it i just unplug the drive and turn on the PC then plug it back in when it gets to the log in screen. Just thought others would like to know about this little kink.
