Pros: Drive works well. It is fast and quiet. Average dimension sizes and basic design drive. Of course the formatting really brings all these drives capacities by 10% and this one is no exception. One of the proprietary software is useful and appears to help speed the file copying process possibly due to the large drive cache.
Cons: No on/off button. The drive automatically turns itself on/off with a signal from the computer. Drive enclosure does not appear to be well designed, which is more apparent in the rear connections as it seems to not quite fit well together. I hope it has nothing to do with the quality of the hardware inside. It is made in China, even if the corporate address is in Texas US.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus for Mac 4TB USB 3.0 Mac & PC Storage Model STCB4000102
Pros: Nice form factor. Well ventilated. An on-off switch. Bars in the front approximate storage use/left. Quiet drive and very fast. It is detachable from the base and you essentially have a hard drive that can be stored inside of your box.
Cons: Windows 7 did not recognize the drive after 10 months of use. I used the "SeaTools for Windows" to no avail. I used Acronis, no good either. Drive was still under warranty. Called Seagate Customer Service (CS) to find out what they could do. CS offered to replace the drive as it has a 3 year warranty. I simply asked for help to see if they could assist in restructuring the data or let me try to retrieve about 2TB of information and backups. Seagate CS said I would have to go to their DIY department. Their DIY department said I would have to purchase their software for about as much as I paid, during a Cyber Monday, for the drive. I asked, you mean you don't stand behind your claim and drive name "Backup Plus"? The Seagate CS lady said, I quote, "Well Sir. If you look up backup in the dictionary, it means you have your data in two places." So I guess the Seagate Backup Plus should not be one of those places. Needless to say, I will make an effort to not purchase Seagate drives again. The store I purchased the drive is my only salvation, they will provide a full refund. What good is 3 years warranty if Seagate is not willing to stand by their "backup" products.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Klipsch Synergy Sub12 12" 300W High Gloss Black Subwoofer Single
Pros: Appears to be an excellent addition to any system lacking bass and boom.
The sound of a 12" subwoofer is very powerful. Older windows will rattle and any glass that is not heavy will be heard vibrating. The sound fills any room and in my case a small house.
The cable passthrough allows me to use a 2 channel stereo amplifier, since it will receive the input and allow an output to two other speakers.
Reading about the fully digital and analog systems, it seems the best deal is a hybrid system. This subwoofer combines the two.
Cons: It is made in China, so I don't know what to expect in the long term.READ FULL REVIEW
