This review is from: Shuttle KD20 Network Storage
Pros: I've now owned the KD20 for over a year with the 2 same 4TB Seagate drives in JBOD. I was concerned about data loss and had backed up everything I put on this NAS, but - so far so good. It still works fine and I can see it and use it from my TV's and media players.
Cons: Still slow write speeds 15-20MBs on a Gigabit connection, that's why It lost an egg. Don't advertise 55MBs write speeds unless you tell us how you made it happen.
Other Thoughts: I think if they gave us a couple of ram slots to fill, they could seriously increase the write speed. Maybe even get it up to the advertised 55MBs speed. I really only use the KD20 as a backup device, media server (not Itunes or Twonky) and print server, so I still haven't used the other bells and whistles. It doesn't turn back on after power loss, but where I live we can lose power several times an hour during a storm so I don't mind that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: You can control the camera from your browser or tablet. Has WiFi, LAN, SD Card. Reasonable Pictures and motion detection.
Cons: A bit hard to setup the first one. After one year, the WiFi died on one of mine. Now one year and 7 months later, that same one completely died.
Other Thoughts: I just read that it has a two year warranty, so - if things go well I'll do another review on the RMA process.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Targus APA31US-51-B 90 Watt AC Laptop Charger
Pros: Less than $20. Has multiple tips, mine came with 7. My laptop did not complain that it was a different charger. It's 90 watts, so it should handle any laptop i use it on. It was delivered faster than most of my Newegg shipments.
Other Thoughts: I won't knock an egg for the lack of an LED on indicator, but it would have been nice to have one.READ FULL REVIEW
