Pros: Small Price; Large Capacity (Mine is 64GB); Very Small Footprint AND it's water proof!
It's only 1 5/8th inches in length and only the width of a USB port as this is basically a micro-chip that slides into your USB port with a very thin brushed aluminum shell. When it's plugged into the USB port there is only about 1" sticking out of the port and half of that is the oval looping hole for a lanyard. It seems to be significantly quicker than my other USB 2.0 flash drives which are both Kingston's 16/32GB.
Heck, you could easily carry this in your wallet!
Cons: Very Small Footprint and therefore should have included a lanyard. It is obviously designed for a lanyard, but for less than $12, you really can't complain.
Other Thoughts: I knocked off 1 egg due to the missing lanyard as this flash drive is so small that it will most likely be easily lost. A lanyard would assist in preventing that and I would pay a few bucks more to have the lanyard included. Just my opinion. This is an awesome little device!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quick & Quiet HDD's
Cons: None really except cost, why is a NAS HDD so much more expensive than a standard desktop HDD?
Other Thoughts: Installed two of these in a Seagate STCT100 diskless NAS & it is working fantastic!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate STCT100 Diskless System 2-Bay Network Storage
Pros: Easy setup, poorly designed software but still easy. Very quiet running NAS even after adding two 4TB Seagate NAS 7200RMP HDD's.
(I knocked off an egg due to the poorly designed software)
Cons: Setup defaults to the Seagate "SimplyRAID" of which you cannot change, therefore, you've got to set up the unit as SimplyRAID & then change it over to JBOD, RAID 0 or RAID 1 once completed. Pay attention as you don't want to copy all your data to the NAS before it's configured the way you want it!
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty nice dual bay NAS unit & with two Seagate 4TB 7200 RPM HDD's the unit runs very quietly. I purchased the NAS for $99.99 which is a fair price, the MSRP of $169.99 is WAY over priced!
The real expense is, and should be, the cost of the HDD's, my suggestion is don't purchase cheap desktop SATA HDD's if you want your NAS to perform!
On my home LAN this NAS is a faster backup solution than my previous backup method of USB 2.0 attached external HDD's, which did surprise me!
