Cons: none yet
Other Thoughts: shipping was slower than what i have come to expect from newegg, but on time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I personally own half a dozen of these. once flashed with DD-WRT I set them up as wireless clients to extend connection to areas of my home that get less than good wireless signal to my main router. basically use them as wireless/wired switches. I still own and use the first one i ever had and i have never had one fail/brick on me.
Cons: The antenna's are not your typical 1/4in size (like most wireless nic's) so unless you order after market antenna's with this in mind you aren't likely to have spare antenna's laying around.
Other Thoughts: wall mount brackets! come to think of it every linksys product that comes to mind could those built in mounting slotsREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill R2-JBOD - Aluminum 3.5" SATA I / II USB 2.0 Dual-Bay External Enclosure
Pros: I like these a lot, I took some tape and covered the lights so I could sleep at night instead of trying to count bytes. the fan on off switch is a nice touch.
Cons: The fans do not switch off when i PC puts the drive in power saving mode. and if you use JDOB, do not take the drives out of the R2 later. even if you take both drives out and put them into the same computer. Windows will not see the JDOB, nor will it see the two drives as having partition at all, you will be asked to format them. but as long as you don't screw with them you can just pop them back into the R2 and all should be well.
Other Thoughts: smarter power features would be nice, allow windows to fully power the device down when not in use.READ FULL REVIEW
