Pros: They were cheap at the time
Cons: These drives have a high failure rate for some reason. Once they fail all they do is make a clicking noise. Seagate has lowered their warranty on hard drives down to 1 year because the reliability of Seagate drives has gotten so poor.READ FULL REVIEW

Supports old out dated memory cards if that is what you need.
Cons: It supports memory cards that are not made anymore.
SD cards will not fit in the SD card slot.
Requires a 3.5" to 5.25" adapter to work with most cases.
Cost more to ship it back than I paid or I would send it back.
Other Thoughts: Do not waste you time or money on this thing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small Size, Gigabyte Connection
Cons: Remote is too small, Echo will not work with networked drives such as Window Media Servers
Other Thoughts: Supposedly Centon had beta testers for this. Not sure how the beta testers could have not seen all these problems.
I was looking for a more updated product to replace my 4 year old HP MediaSmart Extender x280n. The Echo cannot do most of the things that the Hp could - a real disapointment.
The keys on the remote are too small and spaced too close together. Maybe OK for a 10 year old but not an adult. The small remote must be point directly at the small Echo in order to get it to work. Hard to find the keys you need in the dark. The keys you use the most - pause and skip ahead are just buried in with the other keys and hard to find. To back up you have to use the clear key that is located in another corner. The 4 year old HP Media Center remote I have is agian a better design and easier to use.
Echo is so far not able to work with networked drives such as a HP Windows Media Home Server.
Every time you turn the Echo off then on again it looks for updates and sometimes just sits there. If you turn the unit Off while it is in this update mode it damages the unit.
The Echo has potential if Ceton can get all these issues resolved and redesign the remote. I am waiting to see if Centon can resolve my issue with it not working with my HP MediaSmart Home Server. Otherwise I am boxing this thing up and sending it back.
