Thermaltake BlacX Duet (ST0014U) ABS Plastic 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Worked fine for anything under 2tb, over, not so much 06/20/2016

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX Duet (ST0014U) ABS Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 2.0 & eSATA Dual Hard Drives Docking Station

Pros: Always worked as intended until I got a 4tb drive.

Cons: Does not work with 4k drives over 2tb it seems. Need to buy another that does now.

50 Pair & 10 Tier Shoe Tower Rack Organizer - Free Standing and Space Saving

1 out of 5 eggs Bought on another popular auction site, fell apart out of box. 06/14/2015

This review is from: 50 Pair & 10 Tier Shoe Tower Rack Organizer - Free Standing and Space Saving

Pros: Some plastic, some metal.

Cons: Most everything else. Pulled out of box to assemble, it's all made to break apart, which it did with general handling, and not in a good way. As they've proven to handle no weight, any movement, barely just putting together without disintegrating, it's a pretty useless chinese contraption.

Other Thoughts: Long story short, don't bother. It will fall apart, and make you angry you bothered to spend any sum of cash on it what so ever.

Crucial MX100 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked well, until it didn't. At all. Used under linux with no issues or compatibility.

Cons: Died after 5 months of use. Using with Linux full time, Ubuntu 14.04, Z97 mobo doing raid1 with 2, crypto, and lvm atop the ssd volumes.

Spoke with tech support, enlightened me to how trim works on here, that the disk relies on idle states to perform trim without os help, and because of gc issues with trim and luks encryption, I cannot use trim from ext4 to lvm to cryptsetup to mdraid.

Web chat support was sort of useless aside from basic broken engrish and cut and pastes of some pertinent docs. Insisted the drive could be rejuvinated by letting it sit powered on without an ata connection, but no dice. Now I need to go through this again with someone...

Other Thoughts: Nice if they'd point out these are not suitable for raid or crypto use up front. I'd love to find a ssd that could handle these, sadly seems all ssd's are prone to expedient death in this config.
