Pros: All the specs.
Cons: Have/Had 4 of these in RAID 10 for a little over a year. I Lost one in a little less than a year. I waited on the Egg to have them in stock again as long as I could. I bought a replacement from another vendor. Replaced the failed drive with new one. RAID array was 46% done rebuilding when I lost another one. In short these drives don't seem to like a workstation environment.
Other Thoughts: I should have bought WD RE3 or Seagate ES.2 drives instead. I've read that WDTLER utility works on these drives, so I might try it and see if it's possibly the drives timing out causing them to fail. Kind of strange though, I got almost a full year trouble free, then within a months time they started dying off.
I lost a WD Green in another PC that was a single drive. It was less than 6 months old, and it's discontinued now. I guess that ought to tell me something.
I've been a long time WD fan, but I'm starting to question my "faith."
This review is from: Pioneer DEH-11E CD/CD-R/RW Receiver
Pros: Bought it on sale for $60 shipped. It showed up with in 3 days. The head unit has good sound, ok power, aux input on the front via 3.5mm plug. It's a good name brand.
Cons: Hard to read at night, no built in MP3/WMA play back, no remote. But that's being pretty nit picky for what it is.
Other Thoughts: I needed a cheap replacement for a high end Alpine before selling the car it was in. This fit the bill, for what I needed. When I bought this, it was almost $45 cheaper here at Newegg than the local car audio shop. This was the cheapest head unit the local shop had too. I wanted a cheap but name brand head unit to sell with the car. Car sold, I'm happy. Thanks Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OLYMPUS FE-310 Silver 8.0 MP 5X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
Pros: For the price, I can't knock any eggs off. compact, decent sized screen, great zoom for such a compact camera, 8Mp, adequate settings for the novice. Great gift. Free Lowpro camera case.
Cons: The only major con would be packaging, camera was in a single layer of bubble wrap, and tossed loose into the Olympus box, along with the accessories. I was concerned when I opened the box from Newegg, and everything in the Olympus box was rattling around.
If I was to get nit-picky:
Olympus' proprietary accessories, such as xD cards instead of SD, Newegg had a good price but slim selection, and shipping is ridiculous for something as small as an xD card. You can't use just any ole mini usb cable, you've got to use the Olympus cable, with the proprietary end.
Other Thoughts: This was bought as a birthday gift for my college age sister, so she can use it to document her summer internship, and all of the weddings she'll be in/at this summer. She loves it, and it's light years beyond the '02 model Sony Cyber Shot it replaced. For around Seventy bucks for a quality camera, xD card, camera bag, and shipping, you really can't beat it.READ FULL REVIEW
