SANS DIGITAL TR4UTBPN 4 Bay USB 3.0 / eSATA Hardware RAID 5 Tower RAID Enclosure (no eSATA card bundled)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Compact, Hardware RAID (no port replicator card necessary), quiet, cost effective. Easy setup and straightforward instructions make setup a breeze.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: There are a lot of people claiming drives drop out on these enclosures. YOU CAN NOT USE DESKTOP HARD DRIVES WITH A RAID CONTROLLER. Desktop drives have a data recovery algorithm that takes too long to satisfy the controller. Data is not provided in the set time frame, and the controller marks the drive as offline. I HIGHLY recommend WD RED hard drives. I'm running the 1 TB WD RED drives in RAID5, not a single glitch in operation, powered up 24/7 since the day I received it.

I have an additional recommendation, besides the use of RAID/NAS/Enterprise drives: Put the enclosure in "JBOD" mode and download the drive supplier's drive scanning/health utility when you first put it together and do a complete "Exhaustive" hardware test on each individual drive. This takes a day or two per drive, but helps insure you don't have a defective drive going in. Once complete, switch to the operating mode of your choice, reset the enclosure, and enjoy!

HP TouchPad Wi-Fi 16GB Tablet Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core APQ8060(1.2GHz) 9.7
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: great device, snappy interface, truly superior user experience, wonderfully community of programmers and end users.

Cons: no front camera, updating it took a little effort.

Other Thoughts: HP is obviously messed in the head for not having priced this device more competitively in the first place, and for their lack of communication with their customers. This thing is awesome, and was never given a chance.
