Tek Republic TUC-3000 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: USB 3, has compact flash, internal

Cons: Compact flash goes in upside down. Not really a con more like a minor annoyance until you get used to it.

Other Thoughts: I have had this in my new build about a week. So far so good. Down load speeds depend on the memory card as well as the reader but with my Lexar Pros series CF cards the download speeds are noticeably faster than with me previous reader. It was a perfect fit in my 3.5 inch bay. Since I have cameras with both CF and SD cards it is hard to find a USB 3 reader for both types at a reasonable price. The USB 3 port in the front is a bonus, especially since my case does not have USB 3. This really fits the bill with significant performance improvement. Once you get used to cards going in upside down it’s an excellent reader. One thing I would point out is make sure you have an available USB 3 port on the motherboard available. If you have USB 3 front ports on your case you may not have one available and may need have to get a PCI card to plug this in. With that in mind I would definitely recommend this reader and would certainly buy it again if I needed another one.

1 out of 5 eggs Seriously flawed connectability 04/29/2014

This review is from: WD 2TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN

Pros: Excellent features. Perfect size. Works great when is actually connects. WD drive inside

Cons: As Neil H indicates it seems to be incapable of staying connected to the network for more than a few hours or sometimes minutes.

Other Thoughts: Even on WD’s own forums there are dozens of complaints about this. WD has recommend in other review responses to set it a static IP. I tried that but it only works for a few hours at best. When it drops off the network not even WD discovery or the dashboard can find it again. Power cycling the device works about 75% of the time. I am rather disappointed as I have used WD products for years. I have a mybook world that has performed flawlessly for years but is simply too small for my current needs. That is a 5 egg product so I had high hopes for this new version. However, I would recommend avoiding this product until WD is able to correct the connection issue. If they are able to do that it will go to 4 or 5 eggs.
