This review is from: WD WDH1NC10000N 1TB My Book World Edition Network Hard Drive
Pros: Extremely cheap cost for the size of this external drive. Has a Gig ethernet port, very rich in features via web interface. Great for streaming media. Extra USB slot for MORE space. It's made by Western Digital.
Cons: Very slow when accessing SSH for advanced features. The software that comes with it is junk. Web interface can be really slow at times as well.
Other Thoughts: A lot of people complain that this drive is slow which is not the case. The software that it comes with is pure junk, do not even bother to install. Most problems from other reviews are coming due to this software which will indeed, cause slowness for you in all aspects. If you use it as a network share or any other way instead of using the software, it moves quick. USE THE WEB INTERFACE TO SET IT UP, DO NOT INSTALL THE SOFTWARE!
If you need a backup solution use Microsoft's FREE SyncToy on their website. Much better than the software that comes with this drive, feature rich and faster.
Definitely more Pros than Cons, cannot beat this for the cost. Do not accept anything less than Western Digital, those are the only drive I or my company will buy.
This review is from: COOLMAX CTG-750 750W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
Pros: It's 750 Watts!! This thing is great, we threw it in a server with 4 gb, an intel quad processor, 3 hard drives and with 7 expansion cards and this thing hasn't skipped a beat. If you need serious power like us, this is the power supply for you. Lots and lots of cables, see the pictures and specifications as if you need a lot of cables, nothing beats this.
Cons: This thing runs HOT! However that isn't a problem as it has two powerful fans so we're not worried about it.
Other Thoughts: When choosing a power supply, look very closely to what kind of cables it has along with wattage. Most modern computers need at least 300W and if you on the edge of technology, you need at least 500W. Also beware of those power supplies that are less than $50 as usually those are junk.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's SATA for one, this thing can fly even though its 500 GB! It's fairly cheap compared to other drives of the same size. and of course it's Western Digital.
Cons: These run very hot! If you have them in a 1u case like we do, you need some serious fan power. Don't let this get you down though, if you know what you are doing, this won't be a problem.
Other Thoughts: We have switched from many different hard drive manufactures and western digital is by far the best. Most of the WD drives have laster 7+ years with only about 5% DOA. A lot of people complain about problems setting these drives in a RAID configuration. This is NOT due to the drive but the software you are using. If you don't want problems with a RAID configuration, use RAID hardware, not software, and don't use the cheap hardware as that is pretty much just software, you need the cards that cost more than $100.READ FULL REVIEW
