Pros: Large capacity drive. Price was right. Great for media storage. Not the 7200.11 firmware.
Cons: "Green" hard drives sound a little dodgy, see below.
Other Thoughts: Even the "non-green" hard drives consume very little power -- my 10k rpm Raptor draws .9 amps on the 5vdc line and .75 amps on the 12vdc line. Many PSUs today are 80% efficient, so a drive in this environment would never draw more than (5*.9 + 12*.75)/.8 = 17 watts.
Pragmatically, one might suggest that manufacturers market these drives as "green" because 5900 rpm drives are a lot easier to make than a 7200 rpm drives, and as a bonus appeal to people's environmental sensibilities without really doing that much for the environment. Still, it's an awesome drive, and I'm glad I bought it.
This review is from: Transcend 2.5" 32GB PATA MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) TS32GSSD25-M
Pros: Outstanding laptop drive, especially replacing the old 5400 rpm drive. A very cost-effective upgrade for an older system.
Cons: High cost per GB, as per the norm for solid state drives.
Other Thoughts: Drive is installed in a hp pavilion zv5000.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI TV@nywhere Plus Tuner Card
Pros: Easy to get working, works in both Ubuntu and Windows XP. The software interface in XP is simple and utilitarian.
Cons: Any card rendering 640x480 will look ugly at 1680x1050.
Other Thoughts: Bought the card to play my PS2 on my computer. I wasn't disappointed, but I wouldn't hook any newer consoles up to this card as today's consoles are most enjoyable played in hi-def.READ FULL REVIEW
