This review is from: WD My Cloud EX4 Diskless: 4-Bay Personal Cloud Storage WDBWWD0000NBK-NESN
Pros: I'm only writing this because I have it and don't understand the 1 star reviews. I have this, it works, and so far I've had no issues.
From reading the reviews, one guy may have gotten a bad device, there is a failure rate in all consumer electronics. It happens.
For the other 1 star review it sounds like the guy wants a magical unicorn device. I'd take it as more credible but we measure storage in bytes and the guy is complaining that it takes 20 minutes to transfer 1.5 terabytes. Ok, so... the 1 (one) gigabit network card in this baby is transferring at 10 (ten) gigabits and you are calling it a con? For the other issues there can be other things such as DRM standing in the way. This thing gets firmware updates regularly maybe there was a bug or something.
For WAN access I've had no issues. I hate writing reviews to stick up for a company or device but for me this thing has been a solid performer.
Further calculations for the unicorn idiot if he ever reads this:
1.5 Terabytes over 1000/M = 3 Hours, 45 Minutes and 16 Seconds
If he meant terabits. 1.5 terabits = ~192 Gigabytes.
192 Gigabytes over 1000/M = 0 Hours, 28 Minutes and 09 Seconds
Cons: Some of the software updates take awhile.
Other Thoughts: If you keep your expectations realistic, then this is a good device.
Currently have 4 3TB disks in raid 5.
This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Pros: So far I like it. I use a few different keyboards with different kinds of switches. The Kailh blue switches in this board feel and sound nice. It is kind of like a hybrid between Cherry MX Brown and Blue switches. This is my first dive into Kailh switches over cherry and so far it is different yes pleasant. It is kind of like they wanted the clickyness of the blue switches with the feel of the brown.
Cons: Software is a bit iffy. Not terrible but not very good either. Given that they released the keyboard with a promise of a future update to unlock everything, I"m guessing it is still a work in progress.
The clear key caps look pretty bad compared to the black keys. They should have put more finish on these before release.
Other Thoughts: It is a different feel from both my CMStorm and TT Poseidon. That being said, a TT Poseidon is going to be a better value than this if you don't want as many options in your back lighting. This is a solid keyboard for what it does at this price point though.
I got this just to try it out and can see myself using it for awhile.
This review is from: Xerox WorkCentre 3210/N MFC Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer
Pros: Twain is a pro and a con here. The printing is excellent, the scanning is not so much. This is a twain support machine so there are tons of ways to connect to scanning here. Unfortunately the default software may be something a lot of office IT people have a difficult time setting up the first time.
Cons: I only docked this by 1 egg as the instructions for setting up network scanning are terrible. In fact, with the software cd's that came with my printer and the online instructions, it is impossible to set this up. All I did was set a static IP and download a free open source twain compatible scanner interface and was done.
Docked 1 star because the instructions and software included do not match. If you understand protocols and open standards no big deal, if you are just trying to get it to work, xerox has done a terrible job for the not so technically inclined.
Other Thoughts: Purchased for a customer's home office. What should have been a 15 minute setup took me about an hour due to how xerox has setup their hardware. It isn't a bad thing though as I have worked with similar stuff in the past, just don't expect scanning to be as plug and play as you'd like. The software included isn't really the easiest solution as well.
After installing, I spent awhile getting stuff together and have all new scans going to a dropbox using all 3rd party software. That is the biggest con, 3rd party software should never be easier for desired results compared with the software that actually comes with the machine. Eff U for your software xerox and nuance!!!
