Pros: Don't know. Haven't been able to use it to its full capacity since I bought it
Cons: Doesn't work.
Other Thoughts: This is my second review since I cant update my first. As of now Im giving it a 1 egg because I can't give it zero Eggs. I Purchased in May and it Broke in July, took until October to get ahold of support. I was about to talk to an attorney when they finally replied to my emails. Had to troubleshoot with them for a week. They finally agreed it need to be repaired so they told me I had to return an in warranty item to them at my cost to ship the device for repair. I run a business If I ever told the customer that they had to pay for shipping a warranty repair I'd loose business. This is the only company I've every had require this. Dell, HP, Western Digital all sent a replacement and I would ship it back in that box. Today I received the device back on December 10th and it still doesn't work. The device will only see the drive in Bay 1, and if you put more then one drive in the device it wont see anything. same as before, and the reason why I payed to send it in for repair. It says that it suppose to come with the card but I never received one to start with. I've tried to use this on several computers but they all do the same thing as I described. Should have saved up and got the Synology or a D-Link. At least with them if the item was defective I would have gotten a replacement by now and been up and running.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive and easy to work with. Great for its price
Cons: Tends to drop drives and requires a reboot to get them back online.
Other Thoughts: Purchased in May 2013 and it now only sees drives in the first bay. If I put any other drives in it, it won't work at all. Worked great for the first 6 weeks with 3TB drives. Then started dropping drives 2 and 3 requireing a reboot of the system. Now in October it quit working. Removed drives 2 and 3 and it will now read bay one. Bays 2, 3 and 4 and useless. Was never even able to get to setup any raid due to it constantly dropping drives. Basically its a $150 HD external case right now.. Have sent several emails on it dropping drives with no response. Have tried to call but only get round and round with their phone system. Going to try one more time to email. After that is in the trash and I'll never buy from them again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its a huge drive.
Cons: Not reliable, very unstable and locks up. Drive started locking up and giving w/r error. Reformated and had issues partition the drive. Drive finally died during backup and killed my backup. Lost everything.
Other Thoughts: Seagate just needs to do a recall on this drive. From what I have researched on this drive it has a failure rate of over 50%.READ FULL REVIEW
