Pros: Speedy
Great for an OS drive

Cons: Below avge write speeds after it starts to fill up

Other Thoughts: I'm running Win 7 64bit, fast new i7 machine

At two months old and ~ 60% full, here's what I'm getting tested with Crystal Disk

545.9 MB/s Seq write
469.0 Seq Read

So better than advertised write speed, slightly low read

Out of the box it was scoring 459 write and 523 read. Above rated.

It's leagues faster than an older generation sandisk K****ton SSD that barely ever hit over 200 seq write.

4K numbers are also impressive

Pros: It does work

Cons: It only works if I use it in a way that bypasses the problem design

Other Thoughts: I've had mine five months now. Initially I felt pretty positive about this. I installed one 3 TB 7200 RPM HDD. I have backup software that backs up automatically at specified times. This box initially worked fine, and seemed compatible with my disk and backup software. The box goes into sleep mode automatically after about 10 minutes of no use. Then it takes about 10 -15 seconds to wake up from sleep mode and allow for data transfers. There is no way to shut off the sleep mode. First flaw.

The real problems started when I added another drive - a brand new 3TB 5400 rpm WD red. During transfers I started getting corrupt file errors on the disk and the folder would then be inaccessible on the 3TB red drive. I would use Windows scan disk and it would then correct the errors every time. Initially I suspected a bad drive. It passed all WD Data tests, but I decided to warranty it anyway. I received the new 3 TB red, ran WD data lifeguard and the new disk also passed fine. But same problem. Corrupt data error messages during transfer. Both drives worked flawlessly installed internally, and tested extensively with transfers, and the backup software.

Here's the problem as I see it. My backup software kicks in automatically every three hours for some transfers. But this Rosewill box is asleep. It initially attempts transfer and then has to wait. This results in the corrupt data. Scan with Windows it's fixed. Often the error messages shows on the next startup, in the location of that first attempted transfer.

So the only way I can use this is to leave it off. When I do weekly backups I turn it on, make sure it's awake then start the backup process. When done, I turn it back off. I can't leave it on and use it for incremental backups that require the box to wake up.

Another problem with this is that the fans only kick in when it hits 40C. In my opinion that's way to hot for a fan to start kicking in. I'd like to see the fans kick in around 35C - or offer an optional manual on \ off for fans. 40C is safe but not optimal. If it comes on at 40C, drives climb past 40 of course, then only cool back to 40 and fans shut off. Poor design.

The bottom drive sled sticks and I need to reach in from the above drive sled to open.

Overall, I'm not really happy with it. Every time I turn it on I'm afraid of more data corruption errors during transfers. Not good for piece of mind. I can only use it with the above limitations.

Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: sound is ok when it works

Cons: poor build quality
frequent disconnects due to poor battery life
battery life ... what life?
terrible mic quality

Other Thoughts: I have one piece of advice:

Go to Logitech support forums @ > then to Logitech G headsets category and scroll down the list. Without exaggeration, > 90% of the support tickets are for the G930
