WD Black 2TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD2003FZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: BTRFS entire drive: No partition software, just install btrfs file system to the drive name (/dev/sdc). Filled it up in a few hours backing up another drive that I intend to convert to btrfs as well. Instant access to over 60,000 files seven directories deep leaving ext4 in the dust.

Cons: Strong temptation to purchase a dozen of these for a RAID10 NAS.

Other Thoughts: I have no idea where the negative reviews came from. All systems go, better than advertised. Perhaps the Vantec Iceberq Hard Drive Cooler, Model HDC-6015, was a smart decision. I can't tell if it is on or off, the drive plus fan are so quiet.

This review is from: HP Scanjet G4050 (L1957A#B1H) Up to 4800 x 9600 dpi USB Flatbed Scanner

Pros: Produces 6-color images. Two lamps, one infrared (or ultraviolet?) for removing scratches. 4800x9600 resolution. Does lots of 35mm film and slides at once, so says the advertisement.

Cons: Violet-blue-grey vertical streaks washes white documents. Even with nothing on the scanner glass, the white paper press does not scan in white. Easy to fix in GIMP, increase contrast to +60%; not willing to experiment with color photos.
No Linux support: The hotfix for the violet-blue-grey streaks on white background is for Windows and Macintosh. Unable to use more than 2400 resolution in XSane. No way to access advanced features, proprietary drivers for Windoes & Max.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this when a cheap plastic gear in my Scanjet 5370C wore out with no way to purchase replacement. I have no 3D printer, which could easily make a replacement gear. There is an image of a giant lollypop labeled "Sucker" floating over my head next to the image of a giant wood screw.
Waiting for local charity to pick it up and get it out my house. Looking for a high-resolution scanner from a manufacturer that returns calls from Linux Kernel Developers.
