Pros: Extremely high platter density combined with more cache and Seagate OptiCache tech make this the fastest 7200RPM SATA and SAS drives on the market (higher Sustained, Random, I/O compared to its competitors)
Proven reliability vs other brands, higher temp and vibration tolerances, and longer MTBF vs other manufacturers.
Nice long 5 year Warranty!
Other Thoughts: I have installed a good number of these drives (as well as the older 1st gen ES drives) in file servers for clients without a problem. No DOA drives, no RMA's to speak of, and not a problem with installs yet - something I can NOT say about the competition WD RE3/RE4! These are the fastest and most reliable Enterprise Grade drives I have used (excluding SAS/SCSI drives in our larger data centers).
To the first reviewer that gave this a 1-egg rating because he can't read (or doesn't know how to look?) this drive has a 5 YEAR WARRANTY. I can't stand it when people leave bad reviews because they are too lazy to search - and it's clearly spelled out in the details page right here on Newegg!
This review is from: Handlink GW-1 "One Click" Zero Configuration Guest Wi-Fi Account Generator
Pros: Not just another home router like the other reviewers state! Please see other thoughts...
Other Thoughts: While I don't own this particular product, I felt it necessary to correct these other "experts" that seem to know it all...
This is a gateway... or more commonly known as a web portal. BIG difference from your standard home router that you are comparing it to - even if it does have a 'guest network'!
While this will act as a home router if you really wanted to, its purpose is primarily for business use such as a hotel for example.
Most devices like this one will allow for several WVLANs, permissions, etc unlike a home router and often support a billing function at the portal page... how many home routers guest network allow any of that?!
Again, I have not used this specific product but it seemed unfair to rate it 1 egg due to lack of knowledge! Just because you have setup a home network or configured a home gui based router does not make you an expert... I suggest you leave the reviews to actual owners and/or real industry experts!
This review is from: Link Depot Model UV-ATA12-BK-2 12" Cable
Pros: Nice clean looking cable, solid *outer* construction, well shielded, great for airflow.
Overall, makes for a good clean install...
Cons: Extremely STIFF and can be hard to work with. I'm using this cable in an Antec Three Hundred mid-tower case (budget build) and while all the other cables are able to be neatly tied behind the motherboard, this cable is wayyy to stiff to work with / bend / hide.
Looking at the inside at the top of the cable (clear plastic) you are able to see the wires and they are not neatly organized or tightly twisted like an EIDE cable should be. Similar to Cat 5+ every other wire is supposed to act as a ground to cut back any interference...
- I have only used the cable for a CD/DVD Burner which has worked great so this is fine for what I'm using it for, but I probably would look for a better quality cable if I were using it for a HDD. Just IMO, it may or may not work, but I'd rather be safe than sorry with a HDD and Data Corruption.
Other Thoughts: There is no side window on this case and I just needed an IDE cable so I purchased this for airflow purposes. I don't have any UV fans or lights or anything in the case so I can't judge this cable on it being UV reactive...
Overall, this is actually one of the better round cables I've seen and used. I would probably give it more like 4.5 eggs if I could. I guess it would probably be fine for a HDD considering there are no SSD/10k RPM IDE drives or anything - I'm just really picky and need the best parts I can find for my own computer...
It works without a hiccup with the DVD burner.
