This review is from: Synology DS1513+ Network Storage
Pros: I have only very good things to say about this unit. The packing was good, installing the 5 drives was very simple. Even getting the unit up and working was actually easier than I expected base on what others have said. This box does way more than I'm using it for. There are plenty of apps available beyond what I using.
Cons: Could be less expensive is the only negative thing I can say
Other Thoughts: I now have room for backups for my PCs & Servers.
I also have over 1K movies, many thousands of songs, plus files that would be grief to lose and it's saved with fault tolerance. YES. Currently I'm using 3 WD 3TB RED drives and 2 WD 4TB drives. I've only used about 23% of capacity. I guess the 3TB drives could be swapped with 4TB drives at some point but no need for a long while.
This box comes with a great OS for managing the NAS and some cool apps. Give it your email and it will send notifications in case something happens, I tested it and it works. If you're on the fence and it's in your budget, do it.
Pros: Probably the best bang for the buck at this time, at least until the price drops on the 4TB drives.
I ordered 3 and all 3 are up and working with no issues
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Currently using 3 of these 3TB RED drive with 2 WD 4TB drives in my recently purchased Synology DS1513+ NAS.
All drives are working great. The DS1513 is about 16 feet away from my desk/workstation and I can't hear the drives so that good.
Pros: Greate card, easy install. This puppy is big, but it fits easily in the Corsair 600T (black) chassis. Downloaded the latest AMD drivers and not a single problem. It just works with Windows 7 Ultimate.
For the Windows Experience Index I'm getting
7.9 for Graphics, and
7.9 for Gaming Graphics.
Hard to ask for more than that, except maybe a lower cost.
At this point so long as it continues to work and preform as it has then the cost is justified. I've had this card since Aug 2012
Sometimes you get what you pay for.
Cons: The only con in this whole thing is waiting for the rebate. I normally purchase equipment without regard for the rebate. If the out-the-door price is not right then I don't get it. Normally I give the rebates to my wife and let her deal with them as was this case.
The rebate did come as advertised it just takes Diamond a long time. Corsair's rebate was here in 2 weeks.
Other Thoughts: I would buy this card againREAD FULL REVIEW
