Pros: Fast, quiet, no errors.
Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased. It replaced another blu ray that died after just a few months. I've used this one heavily to rip a couple hundred BR's and not a single problem.
Identical to the less expensive model. Get the cheaper one.
This review is from: Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit
Pros: Quiet, cool, very little vibration
Other Thoughts: Not quite as fast as the Hitachi 4TB 7200, but acceptable.
Wish it was 6 TB
This review is from: SUPERMICRO AOC-USAS2-L8i PCI Express SATA / SAS Eight-Port Internal RAID Adapter
Pros: Fast, immediately recognized by Win 7, solid bios
Cons: It made for a slimline server case, meaning the slot mount is reversed.
Needed a little modification to fit in a desktop case.
-1 star for desktop mounting issues
Other Thoughts: Aside from the mounting issue, it is a solid card with a LSI bios.
Requires 2x SFF-8087 SAS-SATA "forward" cable. These are inexpensive and widely available online, including at Newegg
If you have a server OR you are comfortable with a very easy mod of the mount for a desktop, this is a great card.
