Pros: Inexpensive, both eSATA and USB-3. RAID-1.
Cons: No method to get the device to validate the mirror to insure the drives are in sync. Mfr said "remove one drive and reinsert it to get the device to rebuild". An AMD based system board would not recognize the eSATA-II connection, had to override in Windows so it would work. This was not a problem with USB-3 or on Intel based machines.
Other Thoughts: Noise is not an issue since it runs in my basement. Lack of a firmware or software mirror validation is a serious shortcoming.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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?READ FULL REVIEW
