Pros: It is a very thin but attractive case.
The White LED is very unobtrusive, yet easy to see from most any angle.
The gold color is not glossy at all, a very satin finish to it.
The dimples break up what would otherwise be a plain surface.
After transferring 20 gigs of data (110-115MB/s read and write) the case was right at 104°F, barely warm at all.
Very portable. It is more inconvenient carrying the cable than the drive itself.
200 GB online storage for free (for 2 years) through OneDrive, setup is simple if you already have it setup.
Cons: No built in security. Yes it is easy to find online, but should be included IMO.
Price is too high. You can get double the capacity for just ten dollars more with the 2 tb model. This is the reason for 1 egg off.
Other Thoughts: I am now using this plugged in to my router as a central storage location. It is thin enough to fit under the router, so it takes up no extra space. Kind of a shame to hide it though since it looks so nice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast access times (170MB/sec average)
Speed boost for frequent programs with the SSD portion
Tons of Storage space
Cons: Bit of an issue because of the size. Initially only had 2 tb usable. Drive needs to be set up as a GPT drive, not a MRB drive. A quick command prompt and diskpart utility in Windows fixed it though.
Other Thoughts: I am using this as a primary drive from my home server (WHS 2011).
I went from a 128 gig SSD boot drive, 2 tb WD Green for primary storage and 500 gb drive for tv recordings, to having everything on this and using the older 2 tb drive as a backup.
Since this thing only gets booted once a month or so, having the SSD was no real advantage. With this drive, I am getting quicker boot times than what I was with a WD green 640 gig drive, but not as fast as the SSD (but again, not a issue for my use).
Since all my stuff is remotely accessed, I have no idea if this hybrid drive is "faster" or not, but for my needs, it seems to be doing just a good as 3 separate drives.

This review is from: Linksys EA2750 N600 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router
Pros: Simple Basic Setup
USB for external drive
Guest Network separate from regular network (both in 2.4 and 5 ghz)
Linksys Smart Wi-Fi, nifty tool to check stuff on your phone or tablet
No blinding LED’s lighting up the room
Cons: Only USB 2.0
Only Wireless n
Other Thoughts: I don’t see anything about the router that justifies the price point it is at. It seems to be a solid router, but it really does nothing more than routers costing ½ the price. Sure it may last longer, but no idea at this time. If it were 1/3 cheaper, I could possibly recommend it over other devices. Also having only USB 2.0 when you have gigabit Ethernet is just wrong. Why have the high throughput of gigabit if you’re going to slow it down with USB 2.0. I do find it funny other reviewers take the no LED's on the front as a negative, but I see it as a positive.
If not for the high price and USB 2.0, I would give it 5 eggs, but as is, I am taking off 1 egg fore each. Either drop the price and keep USB 2.0 or keep the price and add USB 3.0.
