Most Critical Review

Cheap Screws, But It Works

COOLMAX HD-260B-U2 Aluminum / ABS 2.5" IDE ATA 100 USB 2.0 Black External Enclosure
COOLMAX HD-260B-U2 Aluminum / ABS 2.5" IDE ATA 100 USB 2.0 Black External Enclosure

Pros: Connected just fine to the drive and my XP machine.

Cons: The screws' heads and threads stripped out on the way back in, using a small screwdriver, no less.

Overall Review: This is fine for rescuing data off of drives, but it's not something to be toted around or to swap drives in and out of because the screws are so flimsy. The documentation doesn't explain how to connect it, so I'm wondering why there are 3 USB ends on the cord. :-/

Excellent for Ergonomics

BELKIN WaveRest F8E262-BLK Gel Mouse Pad (Black)
BELKIN WaveRest F8E262-BLK Gel Mouse Pad (Black)

Pros: The pad is comfortable, price is reasonable, and the mouse works as it should.

Cons: Can't imagine it will last much longer than a $3 mouse pad, it's the same material.

Overall Review: I just looked down and realized I've gone for a week without any wrist pain - which is nice!

Wash Machine Survivor

CORSAIR Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-16GB
CORSAIR Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-16GB

Pros: I rely on reviews but rarely write them. Today, though, I'm compelled to tell you that I found my USB drive in the wash machine after 59 minutes of agitation. Honestly, I feared for the worst and went to bed without trying it in case I lost all the data and wouldn't be able to sleep because of the stress. I woke up, plugged it in, and didn't have a problem. I think it could survive the 2 hour and 2 minute stain cycle without a problem.

Cons: The speed is far from incredible. It is faster than another drive that I have, but it takes a minute or two to open the PortableApps version of OpenOffice Writer on my computer.

Overall Review: The storage capacity is terrific, and I highly recommend buying this when the rebate puts the price below twenty bucks. Thank you Corsair!

A Trouble-Free Year and a Half

Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: These drives are quiet and quick, and in my experience, very reliable. I've run three together in a RAID configuration and found them to be durable and cool running.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: The price is down 40 bucks since I bought them, which is a pretty reasonable progression too.

Most Incredible Drive Ever

Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Buying these drives opened my eyes! Hard drives can be SO FAST! It just rips through things faster than any other drive I've ever had and is almost twice as big too.

Cons: None, the price is great!

Overall Review: Set up a RAID-1 with it and am very happy. Got a third drive cuz they're cheap!
