This review is from: NORCO C-SFF8087-D SFF-8087 to SFF-8087 Internal Multilane SAS Cable
Pros: Well made, strong, sturdy
Cons: Short. These need to be longer to fit comfortably in a 4220 w/ a M1015 or other SATA/SAS card where the connectors are on the back end of the card.
Other Thoughts: If these had been 1.5 meter length cables, I'd never had to replace all 4 of them.
Sadly I spent 80 bucks on 4 of these, only to spend 40 on 4 replacements from Mono-price.
Don't skimp on length, get 1.5m for any server racked case and spare yourself some headaches.
Pros: Was cheap.
Cons: However, I've got 18 pending allocated sectors. 18 is rather a high amount. This is causing me to rebuild my raid array and force the drive into a total destructive test.
Yea, to ensure it's good I'm wiping all data on this single drive, (doing a 3 wipes and 3 reads, to ensure all sectors are good)..
It's not a highly used drive. I write about 500gb a month to it. 14 months for a failure? Too soon.
Other Thoughts: Yea, it was cheap. So is a yugo. I don't drive a yugo. I guess I'll stick to mother brands. (Sadly, Samsung was my goto drive, but they've been purchased by Seagate. Who I trust as much as a 25 year old 3.5 inch Floppy disk.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I purchased this HD on 12-2008. It has 1524 days of power on. It was originally in a laptop, then I transferred it to my HTPC in June of 2010.
This is what seagate was known for. Solid, long lasting, dependable drives. What made me check into it is the transfer speed has slowed down to 30MBs over my network.
Cons: Sadly seagate doesn't make products like this anymore.READ FULL REVIEW
