  • Thermal monitoring of HDD installed in MB982SPR-2S did not work
  • I'll reserve full judgement until I get my hands on two higher performance drives - be it larger/faster/newer mechanical laptop drives or two SSD (fingers crossed!).In the meantime I can say that the MB982SPR-2S is a well thought out, nicely designed ...
