This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB110XK3BA Black
Cons: Two out of two units defective right out of the box. I ordered one of these for a friend. Copied a few hundred GB of data on then did a chkdsk. End result was bad blocks. I RMAd the drive for replacement. Got the second drive yesterday. I ran 'chkdsk' first thing and here are the results:
976759807 KB total disk space.
114124 KB in 26 files.
20 KB in 13 indexes.
976549644 KB in bad sectors.
96015 KB in use by the system.
65536 KB occupied by the log file.
4 KB available on disk.
Only 210,163 good blocks out of 976,759,807! I'll think twice before buying another Toshiba external HDD.
Pros: Large storage and cache, quiet, runs cool.
Cons: Ordered two, one is fine, but the other developed over 350 GB worth of bad sectors in the fist three weeks.
Other Thoughts: Returned for exchange. Hope the next one doesn't go bad so quickly.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit High Performance Desktop Switch (GS608)
Pros: Small, aesthetically pleasing, long lasting.
Cons: Light weight. Cat cables tend to determine it's location/orientation
Other Thoughts: I've had this switch since 12/2005 and haven't had a single malfuntion yet. For a small home use device, I couldn't be happier with it.READ FULL REVIEW
