Pros: -> Large Size
-> Hitachi Brand
-> mostly good reviews...
Cons: -> Direct experience on High death rate
-> This will be my 3rd drive in less than 9 months!!
-> Last replacement lasted barely 6 months!
-> People are not exaggerating about these drives.
-> I have purchased Hitachi drives for 15+ years and I have NEVER NEVER had a drive with this sort of reliability issue. The drive works for a while, then refuses to spin up. This 2nd drive is now presenting the SAME symptom as the first time it was replaced.
-> Googling around show this to be a common and widespread issue.
-> In my case, this drive is barely being used, just a few files here and there and it's staying cool and not overheating... so I'm not sure what the problem is. I have another 2TB Hitachi right beside this one and it's been running like a champ for several years with no so much as a whimper...
-> If Hitachi ships me another bum drive that fails again before it should, then this will be my last 4 TB Hitachi drive and possibly last Hitachi drive ever.
-> With all the problems being reported, Hitachi should offer its customers an option of refund or or ship a newer model or something which works.
Other Thoughts: -> Anyone considering this drive, should think twice if they value their data, their time, costs and the hassles with shipping these back to Hitachi for replacement again and again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SABRENT Model SBT-USC6M 6 ft. USB to Serial (9-pin) DB-9 RS-232 Adapter Cable
Pros: This unit seems to be reliable, well built and it works great for Windows XP and setting up out computer hardware which requires a serial port for initial IP setup.
Cons: nonREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: > The two of four DIMMs I was able to install did stay really cool - no heat issues observed.
> Mushkin's return policy will to allow me to exchange the EVC modules for their thinner modules - so I'm not out the $ for DIMMs.
> Mushkin support was very responsive and issued a RMA # promptly --> earning them the high rating
Cons: > These Mushkin EVC DIMMS are "thicker" than DIMMs with standard heat-spreaders. If your MB sockets are side by side, with no spacing between them, these will likely not fit in such an arrangement. If you are only using a couple across banks, you may be OK - check your MB carefully.
Other Thoughts: > Newegg site should list the EVC "thickness" as a flag / concern / warning for buyers and then allow for returns / exchanges under those conditions.READ FULL REVIEW
