5.0 out of 5 stars Good RAID card, August 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The MegaRaid Sas 8708EM2 it is an old card but it works with my Z87 Sabertooth motherboard. I installed the manager on W7, I created at first a raid0 then a raid5 to test the card and so far so good. It recognized three brands of discs that I have, but it can not work with discs higher than 2TB. The firmware that I got is 1.40.342-1650

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool and comfortable pair of shoes, January 4, 2013
These Diesel's Spark are very cool and comfortable pair of shoes, they go along with your jeans nicely. They are half textile and half leather, with some light grey lines on random places over the shoes, those kind of detail are what make Diesel an unique brand. I picked up the fossil brown ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, reliable and silent., November 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This backplane is what I was looking for, solid, reliable and silent. I have four 1T samsung hdd, I tested as single disks to see temps and try the hot swapping. Everything was ok, the temps were about 30C and the swapping was just fine. Now I have the set as RAID 5. Great purchase for my home server.

3.0 out of 5 stars too Fast too Unstable (Z68 mobo), September 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Agility 3 drive leads to the top the Windows Experience Index, 7.9!!!... unfortunately it gave me 4 to 5 Bsod the very first week since the day of the Win7 installation on my Z68v-pro (FW 606), I had to power off the pc in order to get back the drive on the Bios that's more than I can bear. The guys from OCZ's forum are blaming the intel sata III ports of this chipset. Even the new Ocz FW 2.13 has no progress in some user from what I've read. My solution is easy it only requires a screwdriver and a drive swapping: first I took my rock solid intel 320 from my toshiba Portege R705 and put it on the PC (Asus mobo) and then I put the Agility3 on the laptop, easy, right? Since then more than two weeks and just one Bsod on the laptop (btw it has an Intel Core i5-540M cpu and Intel HM55 Chipset sata II) maybe the Ocz guys have a point there (or they don't), but that makes me think of why the intel 320 SSD is so stable plugged at the same ports (pc's & laptop's)?? o_O

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device for cooling, August 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great device. it does its job effectively, it matches my PC case and it's cheap... My three HDD decreased their temps on 6C degrees and more if you just put two drives. One more advantage is you can accomodate 3 HDD in two 5.25 slots leaving room for future expantion. It has a silent 80mm fan, you have to touch the front panel to know that it is working. It has a very convenient dust filter can be cleaned any time easily. To summarize, good buy to reduce the temperature of the hard drives.

4.0 out of 5 stars at last, the solution from Intel is here, August 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this drive on july 6 2011 and I still have not dared to install on my laptop. As soon as I ordered it I went to the Intel web site to download the last firmware to have everything ready for the installation. Checking the support forum I read many post written since june 1 2011 about a fatal flaw in this series. By the end of july Intel acknowleged the flaw as "Bad Context 13x Error" and today august 5 I still have the drive sealed on its package waiting for the solution from Intel (I don't want to use a SSD with few months of life span). At this point I regret to have sold my Intel X25 drive to buy this one supposedly with an improved reliability.

*** UPDATE AUGUST 22 2011 ****
Intel finally released the new firmware so I updated my drive, let's hope this solution will be permanent. I give two more stars to the product because this drive is as fast as the X25M that I had but I dont know about its reliability, and so far so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent device and DDWRT friendly router, April 25, 2011
I was in search of economic router to extend the reach of my wireless network. So I bought the router TpLink wr740n version 2 (the one with the UFO shape) which conforms with this premise, however I did not expect anything special from this wireless router, if it was capable of maintaining a speed of 54Mbps I'd be satisfied.

So being a low-cost device and with the purpose of conducting a performance test, I decided to change the stock firmware with DDWRT firmware and that was an excellent decision, the device provides a super stable signal, wireless speed of 65Mbps at mixed mode BGN, it could reach the 150Mbps at N mode but I have to bear with my old wifi devices, good power (the router wr740n comes with a 5dBi antenna), the wan port (blue) is now an additional switch port, I bought it a month ago and I have not had to reboot it.

Summarizing, this router, as second AP, is just what I needed plus all the improvements and tweaks the DDWRT firmware provides, it was an Excelent purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Enclosure For The Price, March 2, 2011
This is an enclosure easy to install for USB 2.0/eSATA and it does what it promises. I plugged my spare laptop's HDD (2.5" and 5400RPM) on it so I had to put some tape to tighten. Using the eSATA port the transfer rates are awesome, copying a file from the enclosure to my laptop the rate was 75MB/s, and from the laptop to the enclosure was almost instantaneous (dont know if the cache system has something to do with that).

The package come with a power adaptor, eSATA cable, USB 2.0 cable, eSATA connector for PC. To summarize, this is an excellent enclosure for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top class laptop, medium class keyboard., February 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Portege R705-P41 is a great laptop, it comes with excellent config for the price and the look is astonishing, but unfortunately it isn't flawless machine, mine makes an annoying sound when the space bar is pressed on the right end. However, I give it five stars because it gets the job done fast and easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kingstone for Toshiba lappy, January 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I read somewhere that Kingstone's RAM are good for the Toshiba laptops, so I bought this one for my Satellite A665 and it worked like a charm.
