Pros: Haven't found any (other than taking Toshiba's word for how groundbreaking this drive is).
Cons: The drive first failed after ~9months of purchase. After solving the puzzle of finding the right Toshiba's support site, and solving few more riddles, I got a replacement.
That replacement started making clicking noises after a month. And it failed completely after 10 months.
Again solving the maze of finding the right Toshiba support site, my RMA was rejected stating that I'm out of warranty (even though their warranty checker tool said I'm within warranty).
Going thru the reviews here, I found another site acclaim dot Toshiba dot com which seems to be another avenue for getting a replacement. I'm going to try there.
My advise would be to stay away from Toshiba, not only because the drives fail within a year, but also cause their support system is equally horrible.
Other Thoughts: Will update once I go through acclaim site replacement process.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit DD-WRT Wireless Router - WZR-300HP
Pros: Seems to do its functions properly.
Has lots of configurable options
For the price, it does a fairly good job.
Cons: Needs restart every few days. (I used to own a WNDR3700 which needed restart in few weeks but then again, that was almost thrice the cost.)
Concept of having a NAS via USB port is impractical to use. File transfer speed is to slow.
Doesn't support Jumbo frame and you're limited to 1500mtu (at least with stock firmware).
Other Thoughts: WNDR3700 was super nice and I loved it. If not for that weird radio dying issue, I would still be using that. Since most of the equipment is hardwired at home, I didn't want to spend 100s again for a super nice router (that may fail in a year or two). So this fits the bill perfectly. Has all the features that I want, is fairly configurable and functions nicely overall.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP 32GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model P-FD32GHP125-GE
Cons: Terrible speed, slowest amongst all USB drives that I've tried (OCZ, A-Data, Kingston etc).
Pretty sure Floppy drives had faster speeds than this grandpa snail of a drive.
