Pros: Other then the door sticking at times this Pioneer device has and is still doing me good service.
Cons: door sticks at the most inopportune times,just an aggravation I overlook as usually only happens when not in use for a few weeks,but works well until I don't use it often enough.
Overall Review: all in all for the service and cost a good deal.
Pros: This hard drive is still in use with no problems to date.
I no longer use it as my main or install an operating system as the age of this hard drive is going on 7 years use near 24/7 365 until 01/2013 when I discontinued my participation in folding@home thereafter using for storage only,though I am transfering what I deem important as these devices most usually do not operate correctly this length of time span.
Cons: wish I had bought a couple more,doubtful these are available now.
Overall Review: I've used hard drives till they crash and burn,usually 5 years is the limit,this one is an exception to the rule,health is good at a temp. of 84 degrees Fahrenheit as I type this.
This particular hard drive is still operating within acceptable perimeters as I type with 51,365 hours of operation and 2338 power on count, using CrystalDiskInfo 6.2.2 to give this information.
Pros: quality made
looks to be very durable
nice all around build and holds the cooler pad my
Overall Review: this review shows the cost at $59 though my cost was only a little over $38.00 total,buying from a third party on newegg.com
Pros: good power supply to replace a 300 watt power source.
Cons: +12V Rails Single
This unit was once built to have two +12 Rails
Overall Review: Wish I would have noticed this is no longer a dual +12 rail
Pros: runs quiet for two fans.
no over heating problems,but I do keep one side of my computer open at all times.
used on my older system socket 754
Athlon 64 3200+
EVGA 8800GT or MSI 8600GT
Cons: the wires need some TLC
I used some electrical tape to put them in order plus the feel of the wire(s) seemed cheaply made,but all in all this product still operates well.
the power supply ran my 8800GT and 8600GT with no problems,but had to use my adapter to run my Alpha Dog 8800GS using one power source from each rail (not sure that's a con though)
Overall Review: I split the usage of the rails between my hard drive and one dvd/rw while using the other rail for video card and one cd/rw not including the alpha Dog which I didn't trust and took out since the supplied 6pin didn't run it.
Pros: low cost plus free shipping at the time I ordered
plenty of power for my Amd 64 3200+ MSI mobo socket 754 w/NVidia GeForce4 MX 420 using a sata hard drive 250GB and 512 DDR
Cons: none really,after reading the reviews here on newegg I decided to go ahead and purchase this low cost mid range power supply.
screws are included
I also used a plastic wrap tie on the main power source cable in the center to contain the wires
Overall Review: I bought this in hopes it would do well and am very happy with my purchase.
I hope to buy another soon.
Pros: This device does exactly what is advertised.
It is quiet and slim also.
Cons: when booting to this sata device,it was needful to venture into the depths of the BIOS to Not allow IDE devices to boot first as this device/hard drive was listed on my computer as 3rd. boot option
Overall Review: for me this is a jump to newer technology,I am used to the bulky IDE (now known as PATA) format.
I will have to research about the 3.0gb compared to the default set at 1.5gb,from reading another's review concerning I believe throughput of this device.
