HAMMER Morespace 1TB USB 2.0 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Capacity

Cons: NO FAN.

Other Thoughts: It is irresponsible of ANY enclosure manufacturer to omit a method of cooling a hard drive. It was ok when the drives were small and didn't get hot enough to burn themselves up.

The industry has chosen "quietness" over "dependability" in the feature chart.

I can't tell you how many failed external drives have come into our service center in enclosures without fans. If you're lucky, only the controller for the enclosure is fried. But if you're typical, the drive itself has failed.

If you want a quiet external drive, buy one that has a temperature controlled fan. If you want a cheap external drive, get one with a huge noisy fan. :)

NAVMAN iCN-510 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: see last revew

Cons: forgot one in my last review...

The screen is polarized opposite my sunglasses. So I cannot view the screen effectively when wearing them...

Seems like they took a portrait oriented PDA and turned it sideways for this device. That would explain the polarization.

Other Thoughts: see last review

NAVMAN iCN-510 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Portable.
Gives directions based on address.
Comes with auto kit.
It's as good as any in-car unit I've ever seen.

Cons: Seems to have a problem with SD cards larger than 512 MB.

Not Macintosh Compatible.

Other Thoughts: I use this device EVERYWHERE I go. And I leave it on all the time so it doesn't lose satellite signal. Even when it's parked in the garage.

In reference to the guy below who has the 1GB card and crashing problems - I had the same problem with a 1GB card but not my 512MB cards. So that may be the problem.

All GPS units will take time to acquire satellites. Especially when they're turned back on in a new location.

You should also update the firmware.

Mine also came with everything for mounting and powering in a car - that's unusual these days. You'd have to pay $xx for the mount and $xx for the cable for another unit.
