2 out of 5 eggs Poor Build quality 03/21/2016

This review is from: Logitech 993-000439-01 Unifying USB Receiver for Mouse and Keyboard

Pros: I've had many of these and they always fail after a while. Who would have guessed that keeping a computer in mice could be so expensive?

Cons: Poor build quality

Synology DS1512+ Diskless System High Performance NAS Server Scales up to 15 Drives for SMB Users
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: * Relatively compact for 5 drives
* Synology Hybrid Raid
* Light weight (without disks)
* Quick setup
* Very quiet
* Fast/responsive UI

Cons: * The drive bays are very light-weight/fragile plastic, although I hope that I hardly ever have to touch them.

Other Thoughts: Upgrading from a QNAP TS-409 Pro. I'm very impressed with the DSM firmware so far--very easy to use. I scanned the manual but really didn't need any instructions to do the setup and start building the SHR array. One factor in the choice of this unit was expandability with the optional external drive chassis, though there aren't a lot of reviews on how well that here's hoping. The other reviews pretty well cover the pros, so I'll stop here and update if I have any other findings that would detract from the 5 egg review.

Installed 5 x ST4000DM000 4TB drives using SHR with 2 disk fault tolerance for a total capacity of 10.4 actual TB.

3 out of 5 eggs Not very ergonomic 01/10/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A04B Black Aluminum MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lightweight, No-screw optical drive mounting

Cons: Many small screws to remove front bezel. Front air filters inaccessible without removing front bezel

Other Thoughts: True, the case is light-weight, which is a big plus, but in my opinion the CONS far outweight the PROS. I'm surprised this case is so highly rated. I haven't seen so many small screws for case assembly since a bargain basement enclosure I used maybe 15 years ago. There are thumbscrews on the back of the case, but the front bezel and case top are held in place by small screws. It's impossible to access the front air filters without entirely removing the front bezel. Cases that sit on the floor should be cleaned regularly to maintain good airlow. The "front panel" USB and audio jacks are even on the top of this case which indicates the designers knew these cases usually sit on the floor. Yet, it's a minor project to access the air filters. Because of this I'm not using this case--I ordered another to replace it.
