Pros: This is the Barracuda LP (eco-friendly) and it works fine in RAID 1. It is 3gbs but if you're not running a filewrite intensive system, it shouldn't be a problem.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Thing I came to learn with HDDs is that if you purchase online, it is very likely to get manhandled during shipping (either from manufacturer to online store OR from online store to you). Save yourself the trouble and go buy it in a store (retail version, not OEM). In my case, the price at store was about $60 less than here at Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: * Easy to mount/install
Cons: * Causes packet loss when high traffic
Other Thoughts: I have this switch linking video streaming servers and it locks up as soon as there's high traffic. I have a scheduled download 3 times an hour where traffic increases to 400-500mbps and this switch starts losing it. I am replacing it with a Juniper or Cisco 3560.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TuneUp Utilities 2010
Pros: It's system maintenance all-in-one, cleans up and maintains your system for optimal performance. Sure, you can do everything Tuneup does but with many more separate programs (Defragglr, CCleaner, etc.) but it's nice to have a solution that does it automatically at all times.
Cons: It messed up search on Outlook 2010. I use Win7 (64-bit) and Office 2010 and every day or 2 it would erase my search index and I would have to rebuild it in Control Panel constantly. As soon as I removed it, everything went back to normal.
Other Thoughts: Wish Tuneup would look into this and fix it so I can re-install this pack.READ FULL REVIEW
