This review is from: Seagate STBP12000100 12TB Business Storage 4-Bay NAS
Pros: I think the construction of the unit is very well done. The unit is very sturdy and very quite. (Heat may be a issue in a tight rack due to fan speed)
Support was very kind and helpful (see cons for the reason why I called support)
Cons: Unit comes stock RAID 5 with all storage in the RAID. If you would like to change this you must rebuild it. This would not really be a problem, and it is a task that I have done many times on many systems. This one took 28 Hours to rebuild!!
Then I booted the system after the RAID was built. The unit became unresponsive. After a call with support I was instructed to remove each hard drive and put the hard drive in a workstation to low level format the drive because the unit has no ability to preform this. (?)
Be very careful when building share folders and make sure the name you have is what you really want. I first built a share folder called Media and added all of the video files to it (2TB). This took 9 hours over a 1GB switch. The next day I change my mind and changed the name to Storage because I wished to add other types of files to this. The screen froze for 2+ hours, I closed the browser window reopened and everything looked fine except the folder now had 1/4 the amount of data that it had before the name change. I can only guess that the system has to re-path for every file and since this process froze it only pathed half of the files. After this the system really started to slow down the windows were no longer opening a quick and very choppy. I am not sure if it is the process of tying to fix these errors that has made the unit less responsive or just the unit itself.
Other Thoughts: I have already returned this item. I just felt the need to add this comment due to the fact that this item has been this price for amount 2 months now with no reviews, after I buy the item and call support for Seagate and Newegg then 2 perfect Eggxpert Reviews pop up within 5 days of each other. I just would like to inform you that these problem existed for me. Hopefully this is not in the case of someone else. I will be getting a brand that I have trusted longer for Business class NAS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: memorex 700MB 52X CD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 04581
Pros: I wanted to wait to review until I had gone through the entire cake box. Out of 100 disks I only coaster 5 disks two of which were my fault. Very nice
Cons: Could maybe use a larger labling surface (tiny) i know but I do a lot of backups. By labling surface i mean the preprinted lines, you can write on what ever part you want.
Other Thoughts: Memorex, Newegg, Fedex
The unstoppable three
Other Thoughts: This card works great except for a few things the software is a little bit bugy and needs fixed but after a little playing around things will start to work. I think it is because all of the features that this card has --Card runs Doom III in ultra quality full everything at 60 FPS with a firewall and antivius running Sweet!!
