This review is from: WD My Book Live 1TB Personal Cloud Storage
Pros: hard drive works.............sort of.
Cons: Doesn't work well on a network even a small home network. Very poor software.
Other Thoughts: I tried to make it work for about six months and then took it apart to put the green, slow hard drive in my computer which is what I should have done in the first place with another black drive. I think WD is the best hard drive manufacturer out there but this idea that green save power is ridiculous right up there with water savers. If it takes longer then you save nothing. The green hard drive works much better directly in the computer not good but better then the MyBook. Software usually didn't complete the backup. If I didn't have any spare room or power for extra drives then I would look for storage ideas better then a Mybook.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech SATDOCKU3SEF USB 3.0 eSATA Hard Drive Docking Station with Cooling Fan
Pros: Fast delivery from Newegg as always. Newegg is taking it back at no charge to me which is why I will continue to buy from them.
Cons: Would not recognize the drive and I tried two different SATA hard drives, a WD and a Seagate 320GB. ESATA would not work at all and USB sometimes would see the drive but you could not format or open. I would give a negative egg if I could since I wasted my time trying to get it to work.
Other Thoughts: I am using Win7 64bit with a new high computer which I had built this year by CPU Solutions. I call StarTech and they just asked me to do everything I tried and didn't seem surprised that it didn't work. They were no help at all. Send it back to Newegg was the extent of their help. I won't buy anything they make again!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 8X Slim external DVD burner Model SDRW-08D2S-U/D-BK
Pros: Easy Set up and it works pretty much right out of the box.
Cons: Noisy and vibrates
Other Thoughts: It will do for me since I don't use an optical drive that much. My Toshiba portege laptop didn't have one which didn't bother me when I bought it until I wanted to create a rescue DVD which is all I have done with it so far.READ FULL REVIEW
