Pros: The only pro here is that the 8 CH DVR is decent, however just a generic relabel product that many brands of different surveillance cameras put out. This one is identical to the 3 year old one I replaced so I could get a minor camera upgrade and increase my camera count from 4 to 8.
Cons: The cameras that come in this kit are garbage. They are supposed to be 600TVL of resolution, and they are not. They are not any better than the 3 year old 340TVL, sun and weather baked cameras I intended to replace. They have static, ghosting and sparkles at night. During the twilight hours they flip out and cycle between color or B/W night mode with the IRs flickering, and making a clicking noise. During the day, their image quality isn't much better than at night. I'm very disappointed they weren't at least marginally better than my old ones, which I've put back up until I can buy replacements, since they are just that terrible. I can at least SEE with the old ones.
Other Thoughts: I tried to contact support a week ago and no response to date.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's all good. Bought this SSD for a home based file server install with W7 64-bit and FlexRAID running on it, supporting 14-2TB spinny disks. It's fast, responsive, gave zero issues from plugging it in, all the way through a completed install. Had everything up and running in under 40 minutes, including installation of all supporting software.
Cons: The only issue I had with the drive was the non-standard 3.5" mounting bracket that is included. For whatever reason, ADATA decided to offset the drive a few millimeters off to one side (I can't remember if it was right or left now), thus causing the drive to not line up with my raid back plane when mounting in one of the removable sleds. Not a showstopper for me, I just moved it to an internal mount instead, which is only a convenience issue when dealing with a 4U 20 hot-swap bay chassis that weighs 100lb.
Other Thoughts: If ADATA would fix the adapter bracket mounting offset, this drive would be perfect in every way, but it's not worth knocking an egg off over it, IMO.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought 5 for our WHS2011 set-up to start out. Good amount of space for the TB/dollar w/rebates. Runs cool, quiet and speed is reasonable for the spindle rpms.
Cons: None so far, could be a bit less expensive on a regular price.
Other Thoughts: I'll be ordering 5 more next month if they maintain a good track record.READ FULL REVIEW
