Pros: -2Tb capacity
-5 year warranty!!
Cons: -Started to have bad sectors after a year or so.
Other Thoughts: After about a year of storing my other program folders on this hard drive (with a SSD as my boot drive) it started to get some bad sectors. It started slowing my boot up time significantly and caused boot up issues. There werent any issues if I booted up without the drive. The bad sectors kept increasing, so I started transferring as much as I could onto a 1Tb drive. Ended up getting about 500Gb when it crapped out. Accomplished a quick zeroize on the first and last million, and afterwards tried a quick format, and it failed halfway through.
RMAing this one, but havent had many issues with WD in the 8 years of using their drives. Had 16kb of bad sectors on a 500Gb WD blue drive, but zeroized it and reformatted it and it is still goin strong (as a Movie storage device, not writing anything to it anymore). Also had an old raptor fail on me about 7 yrs ago (2 years after purchase), but that's about it.
Havent had any issues with my 3 other WD drives (2 are 1Tb black) definitely recomme
This review is from: C2G 28731 S-Video + Composite Video + TOSLINK Selector Switch
Pros: -Optical switching
-Works well with the Logitech Harmony One remote.
-Price (quite low for something that has lasted so long)
Cons: -Not Optical and HDMI switcher (couldnt find one for under 200)
Other Thoughts: Overall it's a pretty decent switch. It does what you ask it to. Excellent for the price and has lasted me 2 yrs now. Just wished it was a multiplexer as well so I could play Xbox and listen to music (via my computer) with my surround sound. I've tried with the creative Xfi fatality, and it was a huge disappointment.READ FULL REVIEW
