Truth be told, I am asking it to do next to nothing (most of the time) but when it is running, it has no problem recording 2 HD OTA shows and shifting previously recorded HD content to my server. Triple duty.
Runs cool for an HDD. That's a plus since it sits in a low profile HTPC case.
Cons: None so far.
It would be nice if WD just dropped their color designators. How about using something like VR for Video Recording, SV for Server environments, etc, etc. Green for power saving is logical but blue and black?
Other Thoughts: I needed a place to store recorded OTA HD content while it was waiting to be downloaded to my server. I had just enough working space on the SSD to hold 2 hours of HD recorded video. That is until I added a second tuner card. At that point, shows stopped recording because previously recorded shows were either still waiting to move to my server or were in the process of being downloaded. At about $60, this HDD fit the bill nicely.READ FULL REVIEW
Other Thoughts: Even though this chip is the heart of HTPC, the 24fps was not a determining factor. This cpu just has way too many things going for it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Force F40 CSSD-F40GB2 2.5" 40GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: I know this is no longer carried at Newegg, but if you are searching the Internet looking for information about purchasing one from a different dealer, etc. DON'T!
Only pro was its initial speed.
Cons: Drive one: Last about 13 months.
Replaced by a Refurbished drive (thanks for nothing, Corsair) It lasted 8 months.
Replacement replaced by another Refurbed drive. It lasted 7 months.
Other Thoughts: Going to the recycling center. I can't do a 4th drive. Fool me once......READ FULL REVIEW
