Cons: --- 91% life after firmware update and other SMART entries showed up. Keeps recording tons of errors. SMART was clean as on a new drive with original firmware.
--- Can't tell whether SMART goes haywire after firmware update, or whether the drive is about to die. Two error readouts in SMART are like 12 digit numbers now. How can possibly there be so many errors?!
Other Thoughts: Why freak us out?! Or did we really get bad drives? (see other reviews) The error count being recorded by SMART with new firmware is simply horrendous! I've never seen such big numbers! What is going on? Do I need to get a replacement? Why did drive life drop from 100 to 91% after firmware update with NO DATA written yet (just formatted)?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 / USB 3.1 Type-C Dock for 3.5" or 2.5" SATA III Hard Disk / SSD
Pros: Great case and great layout. Good switch and LED. OK wires.
Cons: Treacherous junk!!! One minute it works at full speed (rarely), the next time it's half speed, but most of the time it's NO speed at all! Corrupted two of my hard drives already! It just won't die in smoke, instead it pretends to be working, giving you false hope, then stabs you mercilessly in the back with disk corruption! The outrageous thing is, I only used it a few times, basically tested to make sure it works during return period. Now it's showing it's real face! STAY AWAY!!!
Other Thoughts: Looking at other reviews, it seems I'm not alone and Syba shamelessly sells products that only pretend to work. Very upset about the data corruption! Tried different hard drives and computers. Their own software won't recognize this dock!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -- Low latency gives plenty of room to overclock
-- 1.5V (Devil's Canyon will love you for it!)
-- Red )))
-- Cheaper than 1866 Zs I've been staking out
-- I made these push 2133MHz @ 10-11-11-24 1T 1.5V
Cons: They still boot under settings they can't run on, throwing you curve balls during testing, yet not crashing the system. Don't get me wrong, I like that it doesn't crash my system, but I'd like a bit more clear signs. I still don't know what the limits are for this super awesome memory! I simply settled with what I felt good with, which also ran stable.
Other Thoughts: I still can't believe it runs this fast under 1.5V and 1T! In the latest AIDA64 Read is 31K, Write 33K, Copy 32K. Latency 51ns. It stays cool, just don't mess with the timings beyond the first 5 parameters. Make sure you have a good board & processor (Intel). AMD, take a hike, Intel rules! Yours truly, AMD fanboy ))) Love my 290X though. I still don't like Intel, yet love my i5, but having the same RAM run MUCH slower on AMD setup is SUPER LAME!!!READ FULL REVIEW
