This review is from: Drobo BeyondRAID 4 Bay Diskless Storage Array Enclosure - DR04DD10
Pros: If you have good hard drives in it - it works just like it is suppose too - I have 4x 4tb hard drives in it and they are set to only allow me access to 8GB so two hard drives show up as M drive and then other two drives on it mirro information.
I use it in a media center station - with over 356 DVD ISO being shared on it that I own, the media center windows connects to device and loads up the ISO and it plays image just fine. I also have a secound one I bought for work and we put it on a server at off sit location and have it accessable thro the network all of our servers are connected to it and do a full backup to the device and it works great for that also.
it does take while to send copy things to the drive for example 50 gigs takes about 15 mins to copy for me i have timed it. but also you have to remember when you are doing raid level mirror or higher level raid stuff it slows down the copying becuase it has to duplicate that information twice onces to one drive and then two secound drive its been my exprince that when this happens it takes twice as along to copy when i removed all of the drives from the drobo and then only had one 4tb drive in it, it then copied twice as fast 50 gigs then took average of 6 to 8 mins to copy.
Cons: no real cons could have support usb3 but no big deal for mass storage and backups you would not really have noticed speed if you are moving 100 gigs too 200 gigs worth information even using usb 3.0 would take while.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR616 7.2-Channel THX Certified Network A/V Receiver
Pros: Well seemed like nice unit for $500 which in my book is a average cost for a average reciver
Cons: thing worked for liek 3 days and now it keeps saying check speaker wire and will not turn on, and randomly turns off looked it up in book says that its shorting out whats funny is that speaker wires are same as in my old reciver and i hooked that up and it works fine so its just issue with this new reciver, no idea what it is shorting on but now it wont even turn on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: price vs how large the drive is ?
Cons: I work as ITS, anyways I have three of these drive - anyways, after year the platters went bad on me on two of them lost all of my digital movies, on one, it did not even give any warnings of going bad just went bad, if you have this hard drive i would keep back ups of anything important.
the third one is starting to go becuase it is starting to make loud noises which it did not at frist.
Other Thoughts: might not be worth hasselREAD FULL REVIEW
