Pros: I've had pretty good luck with these drives, I have 6 of them (total) split between two different servers. One of them is a rackmount 4U server with a 3 x 5.25 -> 5 x 3.5 bay enclosure added in, another case just has built in slide rails that lock the drives in place. They've been running smooth since September/November 2013 in 24 x 7 operation and have handled multiple terabytes of data being written/read.
In the one server they are part of a RAID-6 array along with some WD Red 3TB's, and in the 8 drive array I can typically get several hundred MB/s read speeds (yes, that's MB, not Mb).
Cons: One of the drives I had set aside as a spare, so was never actually used. It failed after 2 months of actual usage. Toshiba was good about the returns process (was able to request RMA online, everything went smooth) but I hate having to pay for shipping when a part breaks within the warranty period.
Other Thoughts: Realize that failures like this can happen with any drive from any manufacturer. The replacement drive they shipped me has been up and running for at least 6 months now, no problems. In addition to the other 5 that have not failed, i'd say the odds are pretty good. I just ordered another one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Collection LED CL-G60E-6W (W) 40 Watt Equivalent LED Light Bulb
Pros: They are LED lights.
Cons: I bought 8 of these lights in September 2014, only 2 are still running 5 months later. The rest just flicker or don't light up at all any more. I used them in non-enclosed fixtures like 4 bedroom closets and several "open" lighting spaces since I knew LEDs are heat sensitive. Still didn't help.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-Q25B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: This case is incredibly well designed for the price, I currently have 5 3.5" HDDs and 1 2.5" SSD in there. It uses a backplane for the hard drives to plug in so you don't need as many power ports on the power supply, which is kind of nice.
The way the whole 5 drive bay system works with the rails and locking mechanism is really creative.
The way the fans are designed to cool, including using the power supply fan, gives the case a real good amount of air flow.
Cons: Cables going to the back of the hard drives are a little snug, but that's to be expected in a more compact case design.
No USB port on the front of the unit, which makes it more inconvenient for booting off a flash drive.
The standard ATX power supply was a little tight due to the way the cables come out of the front of the supply. It puts them directly against the drive cage.
Other Thoughts: The case sides pop off without screws which is both a pro and a con. I had to maneuver my cables a little more because the pressure they were putting on the side behind the drive bay was causing it to pop out a little.READ FULL REVIEW
