This review is from: SANS DIGITAL MobileSTOR MS2UTN+B Big (Spanning), Safe (RAID1), Fast (RAID 0), JBOD, SAFE33, & SAFE50, GUI mode allow customized RAID volume setting. 2 x Hot-Swappable 3.5" Drive Bays USB 2.0 (480Mbps) & eSATA (3.0 Gbps) 2 Bay SATA to eSATA/
Pros: Price, Simplicity and support
Cons: Lackluster instructions and poor design of mode dial.
Other Thoughts: As others have mentioned, the arrow on the rotary dial is nearly impossible to identify but is actually there. It would have also helped to know that a Safe mode volume requires a lengthy rebuild and verify before you can create your partition and format the drive. If you try to get ahead of the rebuild you will only cause problems for yourself. bottom line, it works as designed but could use some better instructions and labeling.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Synology DS1010+ Diskless System Disk Station 5-bay All-in-1 NAS Server for Business
Pros: Setup was easy and Synology has great site for support and software/firmware updates. Active Directory Integration. Very flexible media and file sharing features.
Cons: None come to mind.
Other Thoughts: This is probably overkill for the average consumer but a great product for small business. We used it for our 25 users to place their email archives and personal files to relieve space on our Small business server.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: very fast drive and good price for the capacity.
Cons: As noted previously, this drive requires a micro sata to sata adapter. It really needs a SATA 6GB controller running it to realize it's potential (which I do). Otherwise it does not perform any better than drives that are less expensive.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you realize this requires a Micro SATA connector and it is a 1.8" form factor before you buy it. I had no problem making corrections while installing in a desktop. If you are planning to use this in a notebook or netbook you may run into problems installing it unless the notebook specifically supports the 1.8" form factor and Micro SATA connection.READ FULL REVIEW
