Quality drive

Ian T., Newegg

  • Summary: When it engages, it's the loudest part of my PC by far. But as I rarely use it, well worth the brief noise for the speed it provides.

  • Cons: Louder than I thought.

When I reinstalled, my signal cable wouldn't fit into the proper connector on the back of the Asus unit. I realized that the plastic ho...
