This review is from: SANS DIGITAL TowerRAID TR5UT-BP 0, 1, 10, 3, 5, Clone (N-way Mirror) with Hot Spare, and JBOD 5 3.5" Drive Bays USB 3.0 (backward compatible with USB 2.0) and eSATA 5 Bay USB 3.0 / eSATA Hardware RAID 5 Tower w/ 6G PCIe 2.0 HBA (Black)
Pros: Great features for an excellent price.
eSata, USB 3.0, 5-bays, hardware RAID
I've bought 6-7 of these units for various projects.
I use two in my own studio, and they both developed serious problems after 2-3 years.
The volumes became corrupt and unfixable by OS X's Disk Utility.
(The drives that comprise these volumes are all still fine).
One volume was 10TB hardware RAID5, the other was 2x 3TB JBOD, used as software RAID1 in OS X
I haven't had this problem with other RAID volumes and enclosures.
USB 3.0 communication is sketchy and the volumes eject whenever a large file is read or written.
I've verified this behavior in both my enclosures, and across two different computers.
Other Thoughts: I really hope SansDigital can fix these, as they were absolutely wonderful when they worked.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good printer. While it prints.
Cons: Designed to fail within 1-2 years. Will display obscure error messages such as "Print Cartridge Error". Even though there is nothing physically wrong with the printer, it will refuse to print.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy HP - they intentionally rob their customers and pollute the planet.
Also, hp.com is the most useless website on the internet.
This review is from: HP 901 Black Ink Cartridge (CC653AN#140)
Cons: HP Printers are designed to fail after a period of time. Mine, for instance, displays a mysterious "cartridge error", which can be made to go away (sometimes) with a printer reset.
This is done on purpose to sell more printers and push more ink.
It's irresponsible and pollutes the environment.
Check out "Planned Obsolescence" on youtube.
Other Thoughts: hp.com is one of the worst sites on the internet. It is nearly impossible to find support articles and the search features are appalling.READ FULL REVIEW
