Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop - 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor - 4GB Memory - Windows 7 Professional
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like this particular model of computer. I wish there was a version with an i5/i7 processor.

I also has a Dell 755 with a core 2 Quad processor.

Cons: Two of the four memory slots have stopped working, and it only has 2GB of memory

Other Thoughts: I bought mine used not refurbished, like there is really a difference, and not from Newegg

iView CyberPad 420TPC Android Tablet - 1.2GHz 512MB DDR3 4GB flash memory 4.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap!! This is an amazing tablet for the money!

It works. I connected to my home router, and connected to a web site that has a lot of ads. I think it's browser performance was actually better than my desktop on the same web site.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It is underpowered, it doesn't have much memory or storage, the touch screen could be more sensitive, and it can only run on the battery for a couple of hours.

Connecting to my home router was "interesting". The connection failed several times, but I kept doing the same thing that I had already done, and finally it gave up and connected. I don't know why it didn't connect at first, or why it finally did.

On a tablet this cheap, these are not cons, they are what you should expect.

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The drive seems to be fine as a desktop drive.

Cons: This is not a NAS or RAID Drive.

Enterprise Drives have a setting called TLER, which stands for Time Limited Error Recovery. This causes a drive to limit error recovery attempts to within 7 seconds.

Other Thoughts: Raid controllers, and yes this also means home NAS boxes, expect a response within 8 seconds, and if they don't get it, they fail the drive and take it out of the Raid array. Desktop drives will try longer than 8 seconds to recover from a read error.

That is the difference between the WD Red drives and the Black drives. The Red drives are "made" to be used in Raid arrays, although I think the only difference is that TLER is set in the Red Drives.

There used to be a utility named WDTLER.exe, that would set TLER so that a desktop drive could be used in a Raid array, but now WD and I guess Seagate make it not a settable parameter.
