This review is from: SAMSUNG Plus 16GB microSDHC Class 10 Flash Card Model MB-MPAGC/AM
Pros: Great read/write speeds well beyond the advertised specs. I am getting sustained Reads close to 80MB/s and Write times at 17MB/s. It is much faster than my other Class 10/UH1 rated 16GB cards. Works great in my DLSR and I plan on getting some more when they go on sale.
Cons: I wish I knew these were this good, or I would have gotten the 32GB card.
Other Thoughts: I continuously am impressed with Samsung products, I have HDD's, TV's, flash memory, phones, and even microwaves that seem to perform just as good or better than I had hoped for. Thanks South Korea!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
Pros: I wanted to add a RAID10 to my WHS2011, and this seemed to offer good reviews and an inexpensive option. Installed well the first time....
Cons: I installed the OS from scratch again as I didnt have much on the server to begin with, and one stick of RAM was bad, so I started again. The RAID drivers were installed from the website, and rebooted, then it caught some updated drivers, then rebooted. Once all 4 ports were populated with 2TB drives and setup the RAID in the card BIOS, it would come up in windows only after I set the HDD boot sequence to look at my primary HDD instead of this array. But that was a MB/BIOS setting. Once in the OS, the drives were populated as two mirrored 1.8TB drives, which I could tell Windows to stripe and give me the RAID10.
Reboot, and nothing. Reset BIOS, clear RAID10 array and try again. Nothing. So I try again from scratch, and this time after all updates and patching, it is shows up as a 3.7TB drive. I check for updates, patch and it all looks good. Then I start to populate the array with 30GB of movies. Within 1 hour, it froze, and rebooted into a loop and when I try to boot up fully, I constantly get bluescreens. I have already wasted too much time with this thing, that I will just take another route.
Other Thoughts: All drives in the array passed all SMART tests and have functioned perfectly for the past month without the RAID card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was building my new home server and had only one stick of this in for a few weeks. I figured I would go for another stick when it went on sale, and unfortunately it came DOA. Failed Memtest, and ended up just going with one stick in the server for now.
Cons: Price has gone up again and I dont want to take the chance and time to try to get another right now. Hopefully I just got a lemon on the second stick.
Other Thoughts: I usually get Gskill on all of my other builds and have had a near 100% success rate when going with them for the past 8 years. I may just stick with them.READ FULL REVIEW
