This review is from: SYBA SY-SA3114-4R PCI SATA I (1.5Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
Cons: Quality, Installation, Functionality
This came with a toilet paper thin instruction "manual" printed in almost microscopic font. The lease offensive thing I could say about it is that it would not make good toilet paper. According to the "manual" it was not for windows 7 even though the site and box said it was.
Installation required many reboots and finally resulted in the drivers getting loaded. The CD that came with it had a text file on it that was useless much like the device itself.
When I connected a device to it my computer would no longer boot up. So finally after a very frustrating morning (about 3 hours) fighting this turkey, I gave up and removed it.
The net result was that I had to bive up one of my SATA drives, a DVD Burner, in order to install the new 2 Gig HD.
Other Thoughts: Yes I could send it back for a refund but it would not be worth the cost of shipping it back. Just got burned this time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Shuttle KD20 Network Storage
Pros: Price, The installation software located and configured the NAS easily.
Cons: The first thing I saw that troubled me was the flimsiness of construction but I was able to install the device following the simple directions provided.
After about an hour is locked up and I checked it and discovered that the fan was not working. My other raid devices are quiet so I was not concerned at first until I realized there was a problem.
I inspected it to see if I could gain access to the fan but there was no apparent way to do so without voiding the warranty. So I immediately did a return request and sent it out the next day.
I am still waiting for the item to be delivered to Newegg and do not have any idea how long it will take to get a replacement.
Other Thoughts: If the fan had worked, I think it would have been OK. We'll see. However, Newegg has discontinued this item and I do not know if they will replace it or what!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large Size
Cons: There is no way to get acceptable colors.
No Manual, No Driver, Flashing Blue Light in standby. The only way to turn it off is to unplug the monitor - very poor design. it is my second monitor in a two monitor configuration. The main monitor is an Asus VH232H. I suppose comparing this monitor to an Asus is like comparing a Yogo to a Toyota.
Other Thoughts: There is no support on their website for this monitor. I have Zalman coolers and they are great but this is not an acceptable monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
