Pros: Both reads and writes peaking near listed specifications.
Cons: No 7mm to 9.5mm adapter plate.
Other Thoughts: I made my own adapter; not worth an egg...
I have never had an SSD fail and this one is no exception YET.
This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Good read speeds; peaks at around advertised limits.
Cons: SLOW write speeds; peaks at around advertised limits.
Born to be slow. This SSD writes at HALF the speed of comparable SSD's.
Other Thoughts: My fault for not reading the specs more closely. It's not like Crucial was trying to hide the slow write performance; it's listed right there on the specifications page.
At least it had a steep discount!
This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, WiFi Enabled
Pros: looks like there would be a loy of "pros" but if you cant get it installed, how can anything be a "pro"?
Cons: Tech support stunningly bad.
When I asked the support person for the name of the Ipad app so I could search fo, find and install it, i was told "wemo"
I should have been told THERE IS NO IPAD APP.
I would have to search for an iphone app as there is no ipad app.
After 20 minuites that i will never get back, i logged into the wemo/belkin forum where the answer was searched for and found in less than 1 minute,
SKIP ALL FORMS OF BELKIN DIRECT tech SUPPORT, YOU HAVE BEEN WAENED.
So now it should have been a snap to get the install done.
One of the first things you must do is attach to your "home" network.
Because they expect that it's a "home newwork" it must have the lowest level of encryptiion. Mine does not have a small WEP key. it has a (too long for belkin) pre shared key. hardly something that belkin should not expect to finf in a home network.
I'll be darned if i an going to reconfigure my entire wifi network to a lowend WEP key to get this belkin dedice working.
back this old tech leftover goes.
belkin, no thanks for waisting my time - but thank you newegg (in advance) for taking back this low end garbage with no hassle (as i know you will.)
At least i can count on newegg.
Other Thoughts: If belkin comes out with a real piece of tek that does what this promises, i will buy dozens of individual units (after i buy 1 to see if it works.)READ FULL REVIEW
