Samsung SL-M2070FW/XAA Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Fast copy/fax, slow scan 10/05/2014

This review is from: Samsung SL-M2070FW/XAA Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Fast copier, sheet feeder better than most low-cost devices. Fax and printer work well. Scan works. See cons.

Cons: It was a little difficult to get setup. Harder than previous printer to get Windows working with the device. Scanning is physically fast but transfer across WiFi to the scanner software is slow, about 10-15 seconds per page.

Other Thoughts: Haven't purchased a spare toner cartridge so I don't know the cost. So far, it seems to be an excellent printer although I wish the scan transfer were faster. My WiFi is up to 300Mb/s and the WiFi access point is about 10 feet from the printer.

Western Digital RE4-GP WD2003FYPS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Low price, high speed drives.

Cons: 3.5 year old drives, well used, sold as "refurbished". Should have been labeled "used". Both drives had over 24,000 hours of power on time according to SMART: about 3 years of continuous duty. Drives probably have 1.5-3 years of reasonable life left. Let the buyer beware.

Other Thoughts: I'm disappointed that NewEgg didn't include information about the age of the drives. "Refurb" usually means a product that was returned after a recent purchase, not a 3 year old. These should be labeled "recycled data center drives". What was done to "refurb" them? Clean the outside and put them in a new shipping box?

SANS DIGITAL TR4UTBPN 4Bay USB 3.0 / eSATA Hardware RAID 5 Tower RAID Enclosure (no eSATA card bundled)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive, HW RAID so OS only sees 1 drive, easy to configure.

Cons: Power supply is questionable (1 failed out of 3, I replaced it with some difficulty). RAID can not be expanded by adding a new drive later: to add a new drive the RAID must be backed up, deleted, re-created with the new drive and restored. This is an omission that took 2 stars. Must remove case cover to insert/remove drives if they are mounted with screws, minor annoyance.

Other Thoughts: I have 3 (now 4) of these units. One PS died after 18 months or so. I bought a new unit then ordered a relatively expensive replacement from Sans Digital ($59 + $20 shipping) to repair the dead one. Difficult to install but not impossible. Tech Support responds promptly to questions. RAID5 rebuild on a 4*2TB drive with one failed 2TB drive took a long time (about 24 hours).
