Sony E-Book Reader PRS-300 Monochrome (Black & White) 400+ MB Storage with USB Cable, and Protective Sleeve
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked and still does, it was a refurb.
Calibre converts/transfers books from PC.
Sturdy-feeling brushed aluminum.
Charges quickly, lasts.
$22 refurb.

Cons: No backlight.
Hard to see in dim conditions.

Other Thoughts: The unit feels sturdy, holds many hundreds of books, and starts up and shuts down quickly.
Had no problems synching non-purchased books from my vast BT collection.
Needs some light to see, though.

Asustor AS-608T Diskless System Network Storage
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Asustor 608-T 02/07/2015

This review is from: Asustor AS-608T Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Works well with WD Red 6TB's
Massive storage
Suitable for archiving

Cons: Only 1 GB RAM
Approved RAM Modules expensive
Difficulty connecting sometimes
Pre-installed folders can't be removed

Other Thoughts: Got mine elsewhere at 30% less cost. Got it to replace a Windows LGA 775 system and Highpoint 2720 SGL. Asustor is not as multi-functional but it's more compact.
No initial setup issues but sometimes is not "seen" by my computer and I have to run the Asustor Control Center and overwrite the Internet Explorer favorites shortcut. Not a big deal once you figure it out.
I use the unit for archiving BluRay transcodes by mapping a folder created on the unit as a network drive.
Had it over a month and am happy with it so far.

WD Red WD60EFRX 6TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No DOA's in order of 4
Working fine in RAID 1/0 on Highpoint 2640x4 card
Kept dropping on Highpoint 2720SGL but we'll see if the replacement card fixes that, it's on the way with 2 more drives

Cons: Possibly don't play well with the 2720, but I do not know for sure, yet

Other Thoughts: Per GB cost not much more than 4TB's
Keep a fan on them when writing extensively, they get warm otherwise
