Pros: good price point and value per TB
Cons: absolutely ZERO support on the Toshiba website for drives and seemingly no drive utilities to confirm drive is working
Other Thoughts: We shall see how long it lasts based on what people have said on here, I've only had it a couple of days. Also, the first time I hooked it up in an existing SATA enclosure I had, the drive was not able to be initialized and only identified as 768MB but it was the SATA card not the drive in the end. I hooked it up to a straight USB SATA adapter I was able to initialize and clone on it to the full 3TB size. Unfortunately the old enclosure is apparently useless for anything over 2TB maybe.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Pretty easy to setup really -- just plug in and make sure the cable provider had all the necessary info in their system to recognize and register the device on their network. The vertical form factor takes up less space than the previous Cisco one I had. This unit runs and stays pretty cool. Speed is great, but that is as much a function of my service and DOCSIS 3.0 than anything.
Cons: The only somewhat minor but annoying thing is that the status lights are VERY bright and larger than a typical LED. And there is only one data light and flashes at a constant rate regardless of traffic so it doesn't really give you an indication of what is happening inbound or outbound.
Other Thoughts: Compared to my prior cable modem, this one seems to take a fair while to boot up and connect when restarted. It's not clear to me what that is about.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 16GB microSDHC Flash Card (Bulk Pack) Model MB-MSAGBBD1
Pros: good price, decent speed
Cons: depending on usage, might need a card with faster speed, see "other thoughts"
Other Thoughts: I am using this in a TomTom for holding extra maps, and despite the higher class speed, there is a noticeably slower startup and boot time when switching to the map on this card. There doesn't seem to be any lags though when actually USING the map during navigation.READ FULL REVIEW
