This review is from: WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5" 120 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD Kit WD1001X06XDTL
Pros: Fast boot up and operation. Quiet. Painless to install.
Cons: Though I had plenty room to install my many programs on the SSD, I would have preferred to have at least 200GB on the SSD for the room.
Other Thoughts: I just completed installing this WD Black-2 Dual Drive onto my Dell XPS 1645 laptop and am very pleased! As indicated in the video on the WD site, you can either do a clean re-install or do a clone of your existing HDU. I opted to do the clean install. Tho I knew it would take considerable time, I'm glad I did. The 120GB SSD comes up as the default. I installed the OS to the SSD, then put the "key" that comes with the drive into a USB. It took me to their site and automatically downloaded and installed drivers to recognize / set up the 1TB Black 2nd drive. I created the same type of folders on the 2nd drive as on the primary (i.e., Program Files (x386), Program Files, Users, etc.). I reset my library folders (Win7) to folders on the 2nd drive (simply right-click on your user folder [e.g., Documents, Music, etc.], click on "Location" and select a folder on your 2nd drive - it migrates everything their automatically). You can do the same for the "Public" folders but have to boot into Safe Mode to modify these folders. I copied all my data from old drive (WD gives you a SATA to USB pigtail to use) to the new folders on the 2nd drive (i.e., Documents to Documents, etc.). I then re-installed all my programs. I even reset the temporary folder (under System folder in Control Panel) to use the 2nd drive. I have a lot on my laptop and still have nearly 50GB left on the SSD drive! It boots much faster and runs remarkably smoother.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Uniden EZI2996 1.9 GHz Digital DECT 6.0 1X Handsets Cordless Phone
Pros: Lighted keypad; mega-variable setup options; user-friendly; phonebook shared by all handsets; direct message system retrievable by any handset on the system; additonal off-system voicemail retrieval / monitor (we have Comcast digital); message waiting signal on all handsets; ultimate clarity; changable ringer options; expandable to six total handsets; add-on booster module available (we have one upstairs tho' didn't really need it); frequency does not interfere with other household, wireless items. BEST OF ALL: uses standard AA rechargable batteries (available locally) - avoids having to pay $20+ for a unique battery as most others do!
Cons: Only con: doesn't have an audible beep or signal indicating message left (only a blinking light on all handsets)
Other Thoughts: We have had numerous message machines and wireless handsets from several manufacturers. This is by far the best overall system we've had - a real keeper until they die of old age! Most strongly recommended for purchase!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: --Many/various capabilities as a network server. Fairly easy to set up with some technical knowledge required. User selectable hard drives for capacity and capabilities.
--Fast network accessibility!
--Other than below no complaints thus far . . . runs very well, cool, quiet, and efficient.
Cons: --Setting up unit initially - the setup software looked for a *.pat file which I had to find and "guess" which one was the right one off the disk. Manufacture should have had options from which to click/select and the setup program should have then gone to select the appropriate file on the install CD.
--Took "forever" for the RAID 1 array to setup - over 14 hours!
Other Thoughts: --This is replacing a first generation WD My Book World which was much easier to set up but exceedingly-slug-slow!
--I set this up with two Western Digital AV-GP WD20EVDS 2TB SATA in a RAID 1 array - giving me just under 2TB of space. Note these are "green" drives and function fine with this unit in spite of some previous comments that green drives do not work with it.
--Thus far I love it and highly recommend it.
