LaCie 4big Quadra 16TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Good purchase. 11/23/2013

This review is from: LaCie 4big Quadra 16TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 9000330U

Pros: It works as advertised. (not all the common these days)
Attached to W7 on USB3 with hdtach I get 182MB/s avg read.
Raid configuration is easy
Price isn't outrageous when you consider the cost of 4 - 4TB drives.

Cons: Sleeps and wakes up randomly sometimes. I suspect this is a W7 issue and not the device.
Takes a little longer than I would like to wake up, but faster than my WD raid usb drive. Not a drive issue, just physics, spin up the drives and verify raid. I doubt it could be any faster with mechanical drives.

Other Thoughts: I have had this about 3 weeks now and am happy with this purchase. More money than I wanted to spend, but given the alternatives to backing up the 7TB I currently have, I am very happy.
I backup all my pc images to it and rsync to an smb mount all of my media from a Linux NAS. Even though the NAS is a Raid-z with HS, one wrong command and its all gone. When will we get TB optical media.
I haven't looked at the brand drives they are using, but hopefully they will stand the test of time.

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have never had any issues with Corsair memory (untill Now). Runs fast and has been 100% reliable.

Cons: One of my modules were bad, it will not run over 1066. :( The other two run incredibly, even past 1600. So why 5 stars? Stuff happens. I have used Corsair for years and never had a problem. I tried Patriot 2 builds back and have had nothing but problems with it, replaced 3 times. I can give them a break for one bad module out of the 100's I have used. Yea, used to build systems for a company. If I have any trouble with the replacements I might have to revise my rating.

Other Thoughts: Newegg customer service is the best. They issued an RMA and even pay for shipping back on defective products. It's not even their fault. That's why I purchase everything I can here. Their customer service has always exceeded my expectations. Thanks Newegg!!
