You can't deny it's better than the old G styling, the look is more refined and everything is clean and stealthed behind shiny plastic covers.

Your liberal use of the word style and its various other forms makes me want to reword parts with the word aesthetics, or at least phrase things differently to take out the word; repetition of the same word referring to the same thing makes the reading very monotonous, and a bit more boring than if you rephrased lines to remove the word style.
Other than that, nice review Bindi; Id love to get one if only it could overclock-and if I had cash to spend on such things :p

I get what you mean about reptition but it goes through 2 editors, stuff is swapped around and there's litterally only a certain amount of times you can say the same thing "it's fast" "it's nice" blah blah :|

And what exactly does ACHI do? From my short bit of research, it's sounds like it's just a standard controller that includes all the SATA-II features (many of which are on SATA-I drives as well, most notably NCQ)
