This review is from: Cisco Small Business 100 Series SG102-24-NA Smart 24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch
Pros: Plug and Play. No complications. No problems. Half price, cant beat it.
Other Thoughts: Did i mention it was half price! Awesome deal!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought four and one contained ~1% bad blocks, RMA'd it. I don't hold that against WD. Every so often a bad egg gets through. No worries. Running in a RAID 10 with transfer rates of ~100-150MB/s for GB sized files, and 40-60MB/sec for a bunch of 3-4MB files. Not disappointed in the transfer rates, it is to be expected on a lower RPM drive and in a RAID 10 config. After exhaustive surface test I pulled them to do the "feel" test and they were warm to the touch but still quite reasonable. RAID is setup in a Mediasonic HFR2-SU3S2 Rev. 2. Very nice device if I do say so my self. I recommend it to anyone looking to setup a small, 8TB (4x4TB, RAID 10) media archive.
Cons: None so far. I did not above that one of four drives was below my standards for a new drive so I RMA'd it, however, if someone was not so finicky it could have been used. WD Lifeguard software will repair bad blocks, but I want to start with a pristine drive.
Other Thoughts: Does its job.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works well once you get it working. Getting transfer rates of GB sized files at 100-150MB/s, smaller 3-5MB files, ~40-60MB/s. All in all not too shabby. This card came free as a promo with the mediasonic pro raid box i ordered so cant really beat the price.
Cons: Running a Win7 system and drivers provided on disk would not install at first. The autorun install would give an installer error. This is a bogus error and I found a workaround. Their are binary drivers on the disk. Load those first and then update with the Win7 drivers on the disk. Worked for me. I took one egg because of the bit of strife the driver provided me, but seems to be holding up fine. Being a promo "cheap" card you have to expect their to be a hiccup or two.READ FULL REVIEW
