Pros: I am tired of cheap plastic brackets. I recently bought a plastic 2.5" to 3.5" SSD adapter that was twice the price of this one. The plastic Icy Dock dock bracket I have is too bulky to allow adequate air flow through my case.
This one on the other hand is solid aluminum, which is better at keeping inside case temps down, has plenty of slots with minimal obstruction to airflow. It is thick enough that it does not bend, yet provides greater compatibility with 2.5" drives because it was designed with numerous mounting points that can be used.
Simple, scalable, cooler, more compatible, efficient design.

Pros: This SanDisk 16GB UHS-I is about the fastest Micro SD card anywhere in this price range.
It performs as well as expected and arrived within 5 days.
Lastly, I had an issue on my Samsung Exhibit II phone where Skype would always crash due to a lack of "virtual" memory since there wasn't enough storage for paging operations.(Phone previously had no MicroSD card)
I did nothing but install this MicroSD and guess what? Skype has not crashed yet..
Cons: None, whatsoever. Shipping was quicker than expected.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works like a champ with two mirrored Seagate 1.5TB drives. Nice to have piece of mind in the event of drive failure. My other two, 2TB volumes are backed up on four, 1TB drives using Genie Backup Manager Pro, which allows spanning across multiple drives and can also can backup open/in use files.
Cons: Took a little techie effort to get it setup. No biggie, though. I've have several other dual/multiple drive sata enclosures and knew from previous experience it was probably a compatibility issue.(it didn't like my onboard sata controller) Hence, I went to my super duper, spare parts bin of used newegg devices, pulled out an old a sata controller, installed and voila! No more problems.
Other Thoughts: As with every other piece of hardware today, specifications and compatibility must be considered to take advantage of some features. Of course, this may require a bit of your time, effort to setup properly. WARNING! Troubleshooting may be required for anything connected to a PC. Stay away if you hate computers!READ FULL REVIEW
