This review is from: SIIG CE-KV0411-S1 DisplayPort 2-Port KVM Switch
Pros: Works with my Intel X99/Geforce 980 desktop PC's display.
Cons: No display at all with my Dell docking station for an E6520 laptop. The laptop and docking station work with a direct DisplayPort connection to my Dell U2410M monitor, but not through either SIIG cable or PC connectors on the SIIG KVM switch.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast for a mechanical drive:
HDTune Write Max 207, Avg 160, Min 86
HDTune Read Max 209.9, Avg 165.2, Min 89.8
HDTune Random Access 15.1 ms, CPU Usage 0.7%
Cons: More expensive than similar drives. However, this drive is supposed to be enterprise quality, so it should be more reliable over time than the less expensive drivers with the same capacity. However, this can only be confirmed over time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Voyager Air 1TB External Hard Drive CMFAIR-BLK-1000-NA Black
Pros: USB 3.0 read speed is about 90 MB/s. Write speed copying a full disk was about the same as for SATA disks the same size.
Wired Ethernet connectivity was easy to set up.
Cons: Software to set passwords for wireless connectivity or update firmware is only available for Android, iPhone, etc., not for Windows PCs, as far as I was able to determine.
Two PCs showed were able to establish a partial wireless connection, but I was only able to connect fully and map network drives once for a few minutes. Corsair tech support recommended exchanging the Voyager Air, but I don't need the wireless connection, so I didn't find out if a replacement drive would have been able to connect wirelessly without issues.
Tech support is only available during business hours on business days. There is a user forum, but the Voyager Air shares it with Corsair USB thumb drives, so finding threads related to issues related to Voyager Air's software and wireless connectivity was difficult.
