This review is from: Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Fast when it works, added 3 hours to my laptop battery for a total of 8 hours of life
Cons: Died 2 times in 5 months. First time it died in 3 months, now it died again today. the entire harddrive will just die, you will need to reinstall everything from scratch since the the format gets messed up. if you plug it into a different computer, it shows it needs to be reformatted. Pure JUNK! avoid at all cost. Waste of $200READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought it over a year ago and it's pretty nice. Its full sized, holding 2 graphic cards and a full sized board.
Cons: Has overheating issues. very hard to push air around in this case. I ended up being forced to buy water cooling to keep the CPU cool (4 core AMD, 3.5ghz). The bluray drive i have is to long and covers up 2 of the 4 ram slots. The PSU has cables that just get in the way of everything. I wish the case was 1 inch longer in every direction because right now it is to tight. I ended up breaking 3 Sata connections on the bored because it was so tight getting everything to fit. I also had to cut a whole in the top of the case for an extra fan. i had smaller 430 graphic cards at first, but when i upgraded to a 650TI card, there is no room. the card touches the PSU now, so no air flow anymore. It's just time for me to upgrade.
Other Thoughts: It's a really nice case, but keep in mind that the case is a hair small. you really shouldn't expect to get fullsized graphic cards in here and still have air flow. good for basic use, but if u are worried about air flow, get a regular case.
It's my own fault tho, and the case is really nice, no reason to remove any stars.
This review is from: iomega 34766 2TB Home Media Network Hard Drive, Cloud Edition
Pros: The drive works great. I have it set up as a cloud and it seems to be fine. full control over it, no problems.
Cons: Once you install the software, it hijacks your web browser!! I thought at first it was just some junk i picked up on the internet, but after using peerblock (shows IP's your computer connects to and blocks bad ones) IOMEGA is being blocked about every 5 seconds. If i turn peerblock off, Google search redirects me to random sites, including "easy cash", fake versions of Google, and junk websites. If i turn peerblock back on, i can surf just fine, but everytime i click a link in google, "IOMEGA" comes up on my peerblock as being blocked.
Before i wrote this article, i wanted to confirm this. I installed the same software on my laptop, and afterwards it does the SAME THING. it hijacked my entire laptop and only with the help of PeerBlock can i surf the web normal now. my spyware remover and antivirus can not pick it up. i surfed the web and found that it is hidden deep in many files and won't easily be removed unless you do it manually.
It is a really sad day when "trusted" companies sell you viruses. To top it off, they want you to share the program with your friends and co-workers so that they have access to your cloud. that means that they are hijacking EVERY computer who installs this junk.
I WARN YOU, DO NOT INSTALL THIS PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER OR ALLOW YOUR FRIENDS TO INSTALL IT.
IOMEGA, i want to hear your response to this! if you were an american company, your company would be sued by everyone. This is horrible buisness practice, i can not believe you would do this to someone! You can not even deny it, I have your IP being logged every time i click something in Google. THE IP IS KNOWN TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR COMPANY and i am ONLY HIJACKED AFTER I INSTALLED YOUR PROGRAM ON MY COMPUTER AND LAPTOP.
The IP address that are being blocked are:
THAT ADDRESS IS OWNED BY YOU, YOU ARE PAYING THE BILL FOR IT. how comes everytime i use google it gets blocked?? how come if i ALLOW that IP and NOT BLOCK IT i get sent to some advertisemnt website?!??!
IOMEGA, that is HORRIBLE, your company is going to be avoided at ALL COST IN THE FUTURE. no one is going to buy junk from a company that installs SPAM and hijacks your webbrowers!
NEWEGG, I EXPECT YOU TO HAVE A VERY LONG CONVERSATION WITH IOMEGA AND ASK THEM ABOUT THIS HIJACK JOB THEY PULLED. I ALSO WANT EVERYONE ELSE who is using this product to do a quick google search and click the first link a few times. they will quickly see it is sent to random websites.
