Pros: Was cheap at the time
Cons: Lasted 13 months. What a piece of junk.
As soon as it got full of data, the drive disappeared from Windows. 1TB of data lost forever. How awesome is that?
Other Thoughts: At the time of purchase, I'm almost certain the warranty was only for 1 yr. Now it's for 2 yrs. Okay... w/e.
When a hard drive dies, it's simply time to buy an new one. Because the Refurbished unit they send back will be in the same or worse condition as the original.
They basically get away with robbing you. Great way to treat people huh.
This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST2000VN000 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive
Pros: Quite. Large. Good price.
Cons: Bad sectors on one of two drives. Figures.
I'm taking two eggs for that. Such quality...
Those feels you get after too many fails from a manufacturer.
Other Thoughts: Is it worth the useless RMA that I foot the bill for (shipping) for a refurb drive that will likely be in the same or worse shape?
The other drive seems fine. It at least passed the Seatools Long Test. If that even means anything... Been with Seagate for years. The last three drive purchases over the last ~5 yrs or so have been less then stellar. Hate to be that way but come on.
I guess WD will be my next drive. Ugh.
Other than that, I guess it is what it is. Hope they last. hah.
Pros: - Extremely reliable
- Great signal and speeds
- Custom FW support
- Versatile features
- Still being sold today
Cons: - Only wireless B/G
- Could use a external design refresh
Other Thoughts: Well it's only wireless B/G. But the majority of people's connection still don't even saturate those speeds, even today. If your connection does exceed them, sadly this is not the router for you. I think wired connections top out around ~30,000 kb/s.
If your internet is slower than that, this is the router to get. By far. It's ability to run custom firmwares (DD-WRT/Tomato/OpenWRT) which are cram packed with extra useful features and it's overall un-heard of reliability make this thing a value at nearly twice it's asking price.
Got mine in 2004. It still rocks on to this day. Highly recommended to install some kind of custom FW. So worth it and extends to the life and usefulness of the product. It really has been a terrific and reliable piece of kit.
