Pros: Large capacity - Have used a little more the 1/3 of it's capacity over the 24 months the replacement has been in use. It's also very quiet as the first one had lots of noticable seek noise and may have been one of the STBD3000DM001 series with the flawed firmware.
Cons: Drive was delievered on Feb 25 as part of a new build and as of March 15, it's already failed. It didn't even make 20 days of use before failing.
Other Thoughts: Replacement has been in continous use since March 30, 2014 without issues. As I don't normally trust a drive until 90 days has passed, this one's been problem free since then. Currently the system is now in a RAID 1 array with a Toshiba as the mirror.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large Capacity and fairly speedy
Cons: Had them for just under a year and they've been rarely used when One of the two failed on me. Total use was about a dozen times for the failed unit and I'm not happy.
Other Thoughts: Having such a large capacity drive fail after little use is annoying but you do get what you pay for and although still under warranty, the cost to send it in for replacement is too high, which is exactly what the bean counters hope for - they've got your money and don't care about anything else. From now on, I'll stick with SanDisk for flash drives as they've all been pretty solidREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Enermax ECR501 internal card reader w/ Super Charge USB Port (2.4a), USB 3.0 x1. 6-in-1 card readers: CF I/II/MD, Micro SD, SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC/RSMMC, MS/MS PRO/MS PRO DUO, M2(MS MICRO)
Pros: Everything worked for the first half year and the Card Reader has read every SD/MicroSD card I've tried. The Extra 5 USB 2.0 ports were welcomed due to all of the flash drives I use for Classes.
Cons: After six months, 4 of the USB 2.0 ports no longer work. The card Reader and the 1st USB 2.0 port (Right side) still does along with the USB 3.0 port.
Other Thoughts: Had bought two of these card reader/hubs and both failed in the same manner. Suspect it's the 2nd USB 2.0 controller in them that dies. Would love to have a 2nd USB 3.0 port instead of the Charge Only Port as the USB 3.0 standard does allow for over 1A of chargingREAD FULL REVIEW
