Pros: Low cost/GB
Did I mention they're cheap?
Cons: Scary reviews
Other Thoughts: Been running them as a home server volume in RAID 1, not one hiccup with moderate use and backups. Maybe I got lucky, but they seem fine to me. For the price, it's worth buying an extra as a cold spare or in a removable enclosure for backups.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Rock-solid feel
USB expansion ports
Other Thoughts: Gone are the days of the Model M, buckling spring switches are few and far between and their reliability is questionable (I'm looking at you, Unicomp...). Enter the MX Blue switch, and its ultimate incarnation for casing and design, Tesoro's Durandal. Not too heavy on actuation, a real tactile confirmation that the keystroke was recorded, very resistant to wear. Add a backlight for night-time hand alignment help, and you have a keyboard well worth the price tag.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I work on big-iron SAN arrays for a living, and this piece of workstation-class hardware blows some of the million dollar enterprise units away. The claimed specs are NOT a lie, I've hit 100+MB/sec (Bytes!) sustained over CIFS.
Other Thoughts: Stick these on a SAS 3 PCIe x16 controller with a ton of cache and you'll have a storage server that will rival most flash arrays big guys are charging a quarter million for.READ FULL REVIEW
