Pros: Huge size is great for backups and the price is very cheap compared to buying Network Attached Storage. It didn't arrive DOA.
Cons: 11.5 MB/sec write speed is very slow but since I'm using it just for backups it's not a big deal. I wouldn't use it as a primary work drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cisco Small Business SD2005 Gigabit Switch
Pros: Worked when it was working.
Cons: Failed after 12 months in data center in temperature controlled environment. Power cycled it once in the 12 months. Failure showed up as fragmented packets resulting in 80% packet loss/resent packets. Power cycling didn't fix. Really hard to debug faulty hardware like this so if your time is valuable, get commercial hardware or stick with 100Mbps network.
Other Thoughts: I guess there's no such thing as cheap gigabit hardware.READ FULL REVIEW
