Pros: 120 GB at a relatively cheap price
Cons: Runs Extremely HOT, essentially unusable in my NUC. Consistently crashes my NUC and the system says cannot find a bootable device. This is a piece of junk.
Other Thoughts: I will never purchase another Mushkin product again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quiet, Well Made, Finally something not made in China (these are manufactured in S. Korea).
Cons: For the cost, none I can find yet
Other Thoughts: I first tried some Seagate 2tb drives that were TERRIBLE for RAID 1. First I had a failing drive, then after replacement they wouldn't recognize the data off the RAID configuration, so nuts to Seagate! I spent a few bucks more and went with what seems to be a much higher quality product. Plus, as silly as it seems, I like the fact these aren't made in China (when everything else seems to be these days!) The Chinese get enough of my money as it is.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Argosy HV335T-EN000 Mobile Video HDD Media Player with USB Wireless Adapter
Pros: 1080 P
Wireless N Dongle + HDMI Cable Included in Box
Plays Most Non-Protected Formats
ISO Menu Support
Can insert HD inside the unit if you want, no need for external drive (unsightly IMO)
Cons: Interface a little clunky
Remote does not respond always on first press
Fan, although quiet, is audible
If disconnected from power source will need to re-enter network key
Website not Google friendly (plenty of random things named Argosy out there, didn't even show up on first page of results) and not totally clear on website where to get updated firmware drivers (you need to click on 3.5, for what reason I don't know!) Make sure you go to argosyusa.com
Other Thoughts: Bought this unit after already owning a WD HD Live Network unit. Really love that guy, but my problems with it are that there is no HDMI/Wireless Dongle included and no ISO Menu Support. For about the same price (frequently on sale) as just purchasing the WD, you get a unit that includes the HDMI cable and N dongle, sparing me the extra expenses--I like that!
It also has ISO menu support, which is nice for all my TV show on DVD discs, something the WD as of yet does not support (although it will play the ISO file straight through).
I'd say the WD beats this unit on graphical interface and remote responsiveness. The menu's on the WD seem to flow better.
But really, when it comes down to it, video playback is the key. I've had no problems streaming 1080p blu-ray on my wireless N network. One slight stutter in my 8 minute test is a good sign for me.
Combination of video formats played+ISO Menu support+cheaper price+everything you need in the box makes this a winner
