Pros: Overall great hardware raid box. Speeds are exceptional and eazy to manage once you understand the instructions. I have this for my HTPC running in RAID5.
Cons: PSU fan is awfully noisy! It is a small fan meaning it needs to run fast in order to have ample air flow. Since i have this unit connected to my HTPC in my home theater, I could not stand the noise. I rigged it up to operate off my HTPC PSU and completely bypassed the stock PSU. There is a 120mm fan to cool the HDs which is ample and quiet.
Other Thoughts: I originally had WD green drives, which are not recommended. I had one drive keep dropping out of the RAID. The drive still works, but not at a performance level the RAID accepts (Search WD TLER for more info). Note: this is a HD issue and not an issue of the unit.
I decided to bite the bullet and bought 5 new WD Red drives (which are meant for home NAS) - been working fine for 2 weeks now.
This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V473BL 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver
Pros: Never been unhappy with a yamaha. Great quality, great sound. Powers my floorstanding speakers perfectly. The networking feature is great - I control the unit right from my phone.
Cons: None - I had my previous yamaha receiver for years without an issue. They make quality products.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: overall design, cabling, fan functioned well. Light on/off is a nice added feature.
Cons: Unit worked for a day then high pitching whining noises the next day and computer would not turn on. It was not being used anywhere near its top rated wattage so it might just be a bad unit.
Other Thoughts: RMA is in processes, as always Newegg is very friendly with this.READ FULL REVIEW
