Lenovo 70A69003NA Diskless System Iomega ix2 Network Storage 2-bay
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: easy setup, well engineered, works as advertised

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I guess I'm a real geek because I love this thing. I've been looking for an NAS at this price point for a long time. I should say I use it only for backup so I can't comment on the media features. Newegg got it to me almost instantly with free shipping, as usual.

I had an empty router port, an empty UPS socket and a pair of spare 1TB drives which are on the list, so I was good to go. This is a nice looking unit but it wasn't obvious how to open it; I had to click around on the website for a while to find the information. It's simple though, the front panel slides up a fraction of an inch and lifts off. I'm guessing it would be a bad idea to remove the screws from the back panel. It has a quiet little fan and although there's a power switch it's obviously designed to stay on all the time. I popped in the drives (there are a couple brackets with no instructions, but if you compare the brackets to your drives you'll get it right away. They're idiot-proof and well engineered). I pressed the drives until they clicked, replaced the cover, connected the network cable and power cord and within a minute or two the until was powered up and configured, with several default shares (folders) each with a drive letter mapped to my machine. I found it best to use the software that's easily downloaded from the website to delete the shares and replace them with my own so it was organized the way I wanted it. The drive letters can be easily changed. The software is good, and it's not bloatware. I usually don't like to use the software included with my devices but this is reliable and useful. There's a button in the software to call up Windows Backup but I don't use that, and in any case I don't think it's included with Windows 7 Home Premium, which is on one of our laptops. I use the backup that's part of Norton Security Suite, which is free from my ISP. EMC used to (and presumably still does) sell a first rate inexpensive backup program, but I can't argue with free full copies of Norton. My first backup failed half way through because I was messing with the settings for the NAS while it was backing up (duh), but since then it's backed up all our machines (the laptops wirelessly) with no issues. We were streaming Netflix to our bedroom (not HD) TV while two backups were going full steam with no issues.

All in all I 've found this to be a terrific piece of equipment, well worth the price.

Logitech S120 2.3 Watts (RMS) 2.0 Speaker System
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs They're $15 speakers 05/22/2013

This review is from: Logitech S120 2.3 Watts (RMS) 2.0 Speaker System

Pros: They're $15 speakers

Cons: They're $15 speakers

Other Thoughts: They're $15 speakers and they sound like it. I'm glad I'm not so old or deaf I can't tell the difference from higher end speakers any more (like some of the people here). If you think the standard radio in your car is terrific, you'll like these speakers. Nothing wrong with them. They're just $15 speakers.

  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Does what it's supposed to 07/21/2012

This review is from: OKGEAR OK108 2.5 inch SATA to USB 2.0 Adapter Cable w/2.5" HDD Protection Case

Pros: Does what it's supposed to, as long as you have two USB ports you can free up. The rubber case is a plus. It fits a 2.5" SSD drive perfectly.

Cons: It would be nice if the cord was a little longer.
