Pros: love the compact design - I never mastered the number pad anyway so, it's nice to have that real estate back on my desk
very solid build and the feel is just excellent; after only one day, I can feel my typing speed and accuracy coming back.
I'm not a gamer but this is a great keyboard for just pounding code and other typing intensive operations
Cons: the documentation that comes with this keyboard is somewhat limited to "plug it in";
the corsair website had a bit more info about the switch settings but after reading it, I discovered that I won't need to move the switch from the default settings anyway.
Other Thoughts: after one afternoon with this keyboard, I ordered another one.
the only weird thing about this order was that it took much longer to receive it than most Newegg orders I've placed. Maybe Newegg has spoiled me but, 8 days seemed like quite a long time.
Pros: fast, quiet, easy to install and configure; good value (when you get a good one)
NewEgg's super customer service and RMA system (which I have had to use way too much lately)
Cons: Quality control - Seagate and WD have both been having some serious quality control issues lately. I have purchased 10 Seagate drives lately and had 3 failures within a few days. Another is acting very suspicious and may fail before the end of the week.
Newegg takes care of these with as little hassle as possible but, there is always a hassle when you have to keep replacing dead drives; packing them up; shipping them back. No fault of Newegg at all.
My colleagues report similar issues with both Seagate and WD and maybe they are related to problems both factories have had. Still this is the worst "batting average" I've ever had with Seagate drives.
This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS 314 (RN31400-100NAS) Diskless System Network Storage
Pros: Easy-peasy setup and installation. Quieter than other reviews lead me to believe - I can't hear it over my other computers in my office so, it's quiet.
Swapping disks is a piece of cake and there is very good feedback through the user interface. The new UI is much better than my previous ReadyNAS box (this is my second one).
Very satisfied with Netgear ReadyNAS appliances for backups and a kind of file-server occasionally.
Fast enough though not a speed demon.
Cons: Documentation was great for everything except one of the very first things you need to know - how to put drives in it. I kinda figured it out on my own and then later found an explanation buried in one of the docs (when I was looking for something else in the docs).
C'mon guys! Tell a man how to put the drives in as one of the very first things on the list!
