This review is from: BELKIN BE108000-08-CM 8 ft. 8 Outlets 2500 joule Surge Suppressor
Pros: Low cost
8 well designed and well spaced outlets
Cons: The off on switch does require a firm press to turn it on, but it can be turned off with the slightest of pressure. While this does make it sort of child proof it does not make it a good surge suppressor to plug in most electrical equipment.
Other Thoughts: The arrangement of the outlets is excellent. The on/OFF switch needs to be redesigned. I assume the switch is probably an integral part of surge suppressor in effort to cut costs.
I added the child proof statement because if a child or pet hamster were to touch the BE108000-08-CM the off switch may be activated. It is not really child proof because the holes of the outlets are not covered.
Pros: Unit is both USB and eSATA compatible.
Very light weight but sturdy case.
All connectors, power switch, raid selection are on the back.
Cons: With two 3TB HDDs in the SANS DIGITAL MobileRAID MR2UT+ the HDD get very hot. High temperature is destructive to electronics. 3eggs for speed and sturdy case +1 egg.
The tiny fan is not user serviceable.
Other Thoughts: Using two SSD, Windows 7 showed a speed of over 200MB/second for over 5 minutes of coping large files.
The small fan is not a problem when using SSD. The SANS DIGITAL MobileRAID MR2UT+ is very useful for making backups that run only for and hour of so.
Do not buy any warranty and just take the case apart and install a larger fan or buy a much more expensive RAID.
I bet that the fan design was changed after the original design of the unit.
