This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D401TDB Black
Pros: Works.. So far
Seagate HDD inside
Cons: Storage space is measured in the metric byte-type where everything is multiples of 1000 bytes, instead of the binary 1024 bytes that most of us have become accustomed to.
That said, Windows sees this drive as 3.63GB; 4,000,776,187,904 bytes, to be exact.
Other Thoughts: Besides shorting me almost 500MB, I was pleasantly surprised to see that there's a Seagate HDD inside the enclosure. I didn't read too many reviews prior to purchase as I didn't want to miss a sale, so that's nice plus.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to install...
Cons: Poor reception, poor this, poor that, poor everything. It can't keep a signal for more than a few seconds. The antenna it comes with is COMPLETE garbage. Luckily, I had another, better antenna laying around, but I still get poor link quality and poor signal strength 90% of the time.
Other Thoughts: With a different antenna, it's completely useable, but still not worth $20. The wifi cards in laptops work better than this thing.
UPDATE: I was contacted by the manufacturer and provided two email addresses. One was an RMA, the other tech support. I figured I try tech support first... Well, they replied back asking for a contact number. I told them they could email me and I would let them know if anything worked. That email was sent 2 weeks ago today and I have yet to receive a response. Since I already own 3 or 4 Rosewill products, I'm hoping that none of them have any issues... This is the last one I will ever buy.
Pros: Price for size (23.75" diagonal, 24" bezel-lip to bezel-lip, 20.75" across viewable, .75" bezel across the bottom, and a mere .5" bezel on the top and sides)
Physical menu buttons*
Cons: Stand is VERY difficult to remove if you're mounting it. Requires a LOT of wiggling and praying that you don't break the monitor in the process..
The speakers are not the best, but with the "equal loudness" setting in Windows checked, they're much better.. I'm also not exactly sure which way they're facing, but they sound like they're pointing out the backside.
The menu buttons are mounted on the BACKSIDE of the monitor which makes it rather difficult to tell which one you're pressing if you are in the dark (the labels aren't lit). Also, the up/down navigation buttons double as the volume/brightness selection buttons. That might sound confusing, but basically, press the down button and you've accessed the volume settings, press the up button and you've accessed the brightness... Strange way of doing things, but with buttons for immediate access to modes, alignment/paper sizes, and input, it's not bad.
The inputs are deep-recessed and difficult to see/access if you've got the monitor on a mount. Might just my particular setup, but I found this to be a bit of a pain
Other Thoughts: For the few faults I have with this monitor, they're not deal-breakers; I'm just picky. Still, I'll definitely be buying 2 more (when I have the money) for a triple-monitor setup.READ FULL REVIEW
