This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D501TDB Black
Pros: Pretty inexpensive for a 5TB drive
Cons: I bought 3 of these and 2 of the 4TB D3's. I had one of the 5TB D3's fail on me. It was used by a mac. The user reported that it stopped working. I took out the drive and hooked it up to a Windows machine with a sata/usb connector. Could not get Windows Disk management/ Disk Part cmd to initialize the disk at all. Disk Manager said there was an error. Tried another pc, and then sent it to our University IT dept and they could not get it working either.
Other Thoughts: Due to the sensitive info that was placed on the drive, the user did not want to return it, so the disk was destroyed and we "took one for the team".
We purchased a WD mybook 6TB for Mac as a replacement.
This review is from: Zotac ZBOX CI320 nano Desktop Computer - Intel Celeron N2930 1.83 GHz - Mini PC
Pros: Small, inexpensive. Works great with 4GB ram and cheap Mushkin 60GB ssd.
Cons: Could not get it to work with usb cd-rom drive installing windows 7 from disc. Spent 3 hours trying to figure out. I'm really not a fan of American Megatrends BIOS'.
Other Thoughts: Put your windows install onto a bootable usb to install it.
It's not going to knock your socks off, but for a casual browsing pc in your living room, you can't beat the $ and the size.
This review is from: DELL AX510PA Flat Panel Stereo Sound Bar
Pros: Great look! Really looks sleek and professional under your Dell monitor. Mine had 2 headphone jacks on the side. Uses the power jack under your monitor so no power cables to your outlet***
Cons: Sound quality is what you would expect. Nothing fancy, average sound. The white light in the center is a tad bright and distracting. Black electrical tape would fix this.
Other Thoughts: ***need to make sure your Dell monitor supports sound bars. Just google your monitor and take a look at pictures of the back. If it has those 2 clips in the back and the power port, then you are fine.
***It also comes with an AC power adapter. If your monitor doesnt have the power jack underneath then the included AC power jack allows you to plug it into the wall!
Also, you really could use this with any monitor and just leave it sitting on the desk.
