Pros: This is an AV hard drive, intended for audio-visual recording in a DVR. As such, it works PERFECTLY for this application. I got this hard drive to replace the OEM drive that was in my TiVo HD XL. The WD10EURX is extremely quiet, and works without a problem.
I used WinMFS to "bake" this new drive, transferring my TiVo license as well as the programs and movies that I had on my old failing hard drive (the OEM drive's bearings were beginning to go out). Baking went withoug a hitch.
I suspect that the users complaining about this hard drive are running into problems associated with trying to use the hard drive for something that it's NOT intended, i.e., for use in a PC rather than a DVR. The manufacturer even warns AGAINST using the WD10EURX for day-to-day computing applications. This is an AV hard drive, plain and simple.
BTW, my hard drive came with "Intellipark" disabled, which is a GOOD thing. I mention this because there is some misunderstanding out there about Samsung Green HD's coming with Intellipark enabled - not a good thing for an AV hard drive. Since at least 2013, Samsung AV hard drives are not delivered with Intellipark turned on.

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB
Pros: On a USB 2.0 port, wrote a 6.55-GB HD video file in just under 3.5 minutes, which is better than 30 MB/s. Not too shabby. Like the large storage capacity, too.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Comes from Kingston formatted as FAT32. No biggy, I just reformatted to NTFS so I could write files larger than 4 GB.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This printer is about the best value that I've seen. As per the norm with HP laser printers, the image quality is simply phenomenal! All of the ogther functions work flawlessly as well.
Cons: Will NOT print from Windows Vista x64! The driver provided by HP for Vista does NOT work. Neither does the PostScript driver that HP recommended as a workaround. If you're only running Vista x64, DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER.
Other Thoughts: Since Vista SUCKS, I don't really hold HP completely to blame for not having written a good driver for it. In fact, I've had so many driver problems with Vista x64 that I've decided to "upgrade" my computer to XP Pro x86.READ FULL REVIEW
