Dyson AM04 Heater & Fan Iron/Blue
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Fine for a smallish room but not a somewhat drafty garage 01/07/2015

This review is from: Dyson AM04 Heater & Fan Iron/Blue

Pros: While it will work in a small say 12x15 room in a house.

Cons: If you try to stick it in a garage that is 12x15 that isn't sealed tight, it's worthless. It will keep pumping out head but the overall temperature will never change. Thought this might be a replacement to my Propane heater. Maybe if I had 4 of these running, but can't afford that.

Intel RS25GB008 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SAS HBA Controller (No RAID)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs NO RAID! JBOD ONLY 12/01/2013

This review is from: Intel RS25GB008 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SAS HBA Controller (No RAID)

Pros: Cheap controller that will support 8 drives.

Cons: JBOD Controller. NewEgg originally had it listed as a RAID controler, which it is NOT. It only supports JBOD functionality, which is why I returned it and picked up the LSI00212 which has 2 internal SAS/SATA ports and also supports port expanders for up to 1024 drive support

Western Digital RE2-GP WD1000FYPS 1TB 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: RE2 Drives are ROCK SOLID. I've had 8, 400GB RE2's running in my RAID box for over a year, ZERO problems. They run cool, they are work horses and I can't wait for the 1TB drives to come down a little more in price so I can replace all my 400GB Drives with 1TB Drives and make the 400GB's backups vs Near online storage as they are now.

Cons: Cons? They aren't 2TB. Really, these drives have been a pleasure to work with. The most solid drives I've ever owned.

Other Thoughts: I run 8, RE2 - 400GB Drives in a raid 6 config with an Areca 1230 controller. Over 18 months that machine has been up 24/7 and the SMART statistics for the RE2 drives aren't budging. Unlike the boot drive, which has failed 2 times since building this box, which has now been switched over to a solid state. RE2 is in mo opinion, the best drive for your money.. as they will last for many years to come vs cheap drives that run hot and die young.
