Pros: Cheapest price per TB
Cons: Out of the box, two out of the five drives were DOA. I tested them on multiple systems, they weren't recognized by BIOS or the Seatools software. It's like Seagate isn't even trying to make their drives be worth purchasing anymore.
Other Thoughts: Pay a little more for Hitachi drives, you'd end up saving in the long term with all the RMA fees, lost time, rebuilds, etcREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AVerMedia HomeFree AVplus F210 Watch Live TV on iPad
Cons: Doesn't work - waste of cash
Other Thoughts: I bought it to watch video on ipad. The lack of support for HD channels is just being lazy on the manufacture's side - that's well within the technical capability of the ipad. But it didn't detect the non-HD channels either - so no channels at all detected Tried on Mac, all I get is 'Warning cannot find the device!'. It also looks like they've basically created one mostly beta version of software and never updated it for anything.
I'm able to view over a dozen channels of both HD and SD from an antenna on my TV. This device doesn't work.
This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-350SATA 3x5.25" to 5x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0 Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage
Pros: Reasonably good price, nice indicator lights
Cons: Drive bays don't fit snugly, seem to wiggle. Turning knobs to lock the drive handles feel cheap. After about 18 months, I began to suddenly get errors across three different drives in the five drive cage. When I ran the drives outside of the cage, no errors
Other Thoughts: I have four of their red handled metal ones, and they work fine. I think this is just a bad design.READ FULL REVIEW
