Pros: Massive 10TB capacity
Large 256MB cache
3 year warranty
Cons: Not for desktop use
No center screw provisions
Lose 1TB formatted capacity
Other Thoughts: So first thing's first: This is a NAS hard drive, not intendted for desktop use. NAS drives typically have some of the error correcting and prevention capabilites disabled as they're intended for RAID setups which should handle most of that. If you don't intend to use a RAID, don't buy this drive as you may lose data.
Second, the formatted capacity is not 10 TB, it is a little over 9 TB. This is because manufacturers still insist on defining a kilobyte as 1000 bytes instead of 1024 bytes like everyone else.
The drive seems to be decently fast for a mechanical drive. Certainly fast enough for most NAS setups and better yet with a RAID. I ran some benchmarks but my hardware is getting long in the tooth so I'll keep the numbers to myself and just say that it performed among the top of the mecanical drives that I've tested and exceeded my expectations.
Pros: 3 year warranty
Sata III 6 Gbps interface
Cons: Slow compared to other SSDs
Questionable longevity due TLC memory
No included screws or cables
Other Thoughts: This isn't the fastest SSD out there, not even close, but at this price I'd say this drive offers tremendous bang for your buck. The drive is thin enough to fit into any 2.5" drive bay. It is made of the cheaper TLC memory instead of MLC or SLC and therefore its longevity is likely to be worse than drives using those types. This type of memory also isn't as fast, however, compared to a traditional hard drive, this thing flies. This would make a good drive to throw some games or other software onto, but I'm not sure I'd trust important files to it for the long run.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-Link TL-PoE150S PoE Injector
Pros: Small, lightweight, plug and play.
Seems to be reliable.
Cons: Not easily mounted, no provisions for wall mount. No bracket or mounting holes included.
Other Thoughts: PoE injectors are a life saver in some environments, allowing one to power PoE enabled cameras, phones, switches, splitters, etc.
This injector works fine with my network camera (TV-IP572PI).
Note that this is an active PoE injector. Make sure any devices to be used with this are 802.3af. Passive devices will not work.
It is nice that this is gigabit capable, which could help if I were running a PoE gigabit switch or a PoE all-in-one computer.
A CAT 6 cable will work better for longer distance runs since they use 23 AWG wires vs CAT 5's 24 AWG.
