Pros: HGST has the highest reliability ratings in backblaze.
Performance is very good.
Great way to store a lot of files.
I also back up the contents to a single usb HD to put in the Safe.
Cons: 4 TB is really 3.68 TB formatted.
Not a knock on HGST; all drives are like this.
Other Thoughts: For home user, I like the idea of using ReFS mirror for storage.
(1) If drive fails, you have an exact copy on second drive.
(2) If PC motherboard fails, you can plug a drive into any other Windows 8.1 PC for reading. In pre-packaged RAID box if the controller fails, can you get to the files easily or do you need to contact manufacturer?
Pros: 4 SATA headers, mini-ITX form factor, boots in seconds, low electricity usage for 24-7 operation.
Cons: Only 1 SATA3 rest are SATA2.
Only USB2, no USB3.
Other Thoughts: It works very well as small cheap webserver.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fuji PLUS FD-USB728 USB HDTV ATSC/NTSC TV Tuner For PC&Notebook
Pros: I built an HDTV media PC for my parents older projection TV. Installation was easy and operation and performance is good!
Cons: Small antenna included isn't great. Better to connect standard TV antenna.
Other Thoughts: The product can also provide you with a TV guide. The device flips through the channels and reads the over-the-air schedule (ie no internet connection required).READ FULL REVIEW
