Pros: Cheap, good capacity.
Cons: Dies after only 2 years, just past the warranty period.
Other Thoughts: Hey WD, here's some free, but really good, advice: If you can't sell a drive with a 5 year warranty, do NOT sell one at all. It will cause potential buyers to wonder what other bad management and manufacturing decisions might be affecting your other product lines. Remember: Quality, quality, quality!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small footprint. Low power consumption.
Cons: Fan is a little loud. For a few extra dollars, Intel could have installed a quieter fan.
Other Thoughts: Used this in a home-made SAN. Implemented RAID1 in software (via Linux) and enabled SMB networking for a common file server solution in my home. The board has been up 24x7 for about 6 months. No issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice price. Firewire and USB support for my mixed environment workplace and household (OSX, Linux, Windows). Quiet. Includes 3 cables. A rubber bumper guards the sides and corners. Nice blue LED. Four eggs the the reasons listed below. Otherwise a definite good deal. I do love shopping here.
Cons: I wish, wish, wish the manufacturer had enclosed this in aluminum, instead of plastic. The unit seems to stay cool, but a nice metal case ensures heat transfer.
The unit was shipped by Newegg in a shipping envelope, and not wrapped in bubble wrap in a cardboard box.
Other Thoughts: The drive arrived in a shipping envelope - with MINIMAL shock packing. It's package was ripped and a corner looked collapsed. Fortunately the drive housing sustained no scratches or other indication of direct impact/shock. I'm currently performing a full format to check for bad sectors and giving the unit a full workout. FYI - I'd pay a little more to have it shipped in a cardboard box.READ FULL REVIEW
