Pros: Read and write speeds are balanced at approximately 540 and 500 MBps respectively. Very good performance.
Cons: Samsung advertises this drive as being Opal 2.0 compatible. I tried to make this work with Bitlocker on a laptop computer and it was a disaster. In order to enable the self encrypting feature, you have to do a secure erase with Samsung Magician software. In order to do a secure erase, you have to create a bootable USB or CD disk. During the secure erase process, the drive was reported as being "frozen" and gave instructions to power cycle the drive to "un-freeze" it by removing the power connector and then re-installing the power connector. There is no power connector on this drive so I'm not sure what the brilliant designers expect us to do. I then tried doing a secure erase using a USB enclosure and the magician software would not let me erase the drive. At this point I was thoroughly frustrated and decided to send it back for a refund. There are other things that I could have tried but it's not my job to debug problems associated with a product that is not ready for the marketplace.
Other Thoughts: Self encrypting feature is not ready for market. Clearly this is marketing smoke and mirrors.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Harmony Touch Universal Remote with Color Touchscreen, 915-000198
Pros: Good price.
Cons: I have received and returned 3 of these remotes and still have not received one that works. The remotes will not communicate with my PCs. I own 3 other Harmony remotes so it's not like I don't know what I'm doing. I tried multiple cables, multiple USB ports, and multiple computers.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't hesitate to purchase a new Harmony remote but I'll NEVER buy another refurbished one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ONKYO HT-S5500 7.1-Channel Home Theater System
Pros: Low Cost
Cons: There is an issue with Dolby PL II x circuitry. The PL II x mode upconverts sources which have less than 7.1 channels to 7.1 channels. There is a loud popping noise when this circuit changes upconversion modes. Any time I change a TV channel and this circuit changes mode, there is a loud popping noise. Basically, it creates a loud popping noise almost every time I change channels on my TiVo. This is a very cheap, low quality receiver. I definitely do NOT recommend this unit.READ FULL REVIEW
