This review is from: Corsair Raptor HS30 Dual 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Pros: These headphones are for gaming and deliver and teh basics that a gaming headphone requires.
Comfort: These aren't heavy and have good cups making them comfortable to wear for hours.
Sound: The sound quality is not for listening to music but perfectly fine for listening to games. This is good because it means you aren't wasting money. Explosions and voices come through clearly.
Voice: I had not problem with the mic on these. My friends were able to hear me clearly. The noise cancellation worked well too. I could turn up the TV right next to me and my friends couldn't hear it. I was very impressed.
Price: This is a very good price for a gaming headset. This is a solid product and if $50 is your price range this is exactly what you are looking for.
Cons: Size: While they aren't heavy they are a little bulky.
Comfort: I don't have a small head but these barely fit at the smallest setting. If you have a small head these will probably be annoyingly loose.
Other Thoughts: These are good, but you should consider the HS40's for only $10 more.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD Red WD10JFCX 1TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" NAS Internal Hard Drive -Bulk
Pros: These are solid 2.5in HDD's. For some people these would be a great choice to use in a NAS. As marketed, they are appropriate for someone in a small office or at home. The performance is good including in RAID. I ran multiple instances of a benchmarks to simulate multiple people using it heavily. It had solid sustained read and write speed including when doing multiple read at the same time or reading and writing simultaneously. Reading in just a single instance it go 110MB/s with very little variation. Reading two files at once the speed was cut exactly in half to 52MB/s. Writing and read+write did scale quite as well but still scalled well. If you want to use a couple of these in a media server with a few people streaming from it, these drives will do the job.
They are compact, and low power. Being low power is a definite benefit since these are meant to be used 24/7. Being 2.5in is nice but considering the NAS bay you have is likely going to be designed for 3.5in, you won't be saving space obviosuly.
Very quiet and little vibration.
3-year warranty is a nice plus.
High number of compatible NAS bays.
They are supposed to be able to finish writes if they detect loss of power.
Cons: These cost a premium per gigabyte. There are reasons obviously give the longer warranty, NASware2.0 firmware, and the fact that they offer good performance in a small, power-efficient package. If those pros aren't things you need, then there are definitely cheaper solutions that will be just as good. Considering you'll be buying a few of these that price will add up. Other than that I could not find a fault with these drives.
Other Thoughts: I've always had good experience with WD hard drives in the past.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Central STCG2000100 2TB Cloud Storage System
Pros: It comes in a clean simple package compared to a typical NAS which is pretty bulky.
It's not a bad price for a 2TB nas.
Setting it up couldn't be easier. Plug it in and it shows up in File Explorer. Go to the public folder and there's a link to the management url. From there you name it and set up the admin user.
Adding new users couldn't be easier. Just give a name and a password. Once you do that it creates a private folder for them.
Making backups for Windows, OS X, Facebook and iTunes is really simple. (Don't use OS X or iTunes so can't verify those work)
iTunes and Facebook backups get updated automatically. I did the FB update which simply required giving it your FB email then logging into FB and giving it access to your content.
You can add a usb drive for additional storage.
Mobile Apps make it easy to access on Android and iOS. On my Android phone I had no problem finding the Central.
Works well as a storage unit for XBMC.
Cons: First, this device is really slow especially when accessing it remotely. From my pc via ethernet, I got a max 20MB/s write. Trying to play media remotely was a total failure. I put about 500 songs on the Central and when I went to the music folder on a mobile device, it would take forever for it to simply display the files. Also, it would not display any songs from some artists. Can't explain why, I verified on my pc the files were there and songs would play. Hopefully the song you are looking for is at the beginning of the alphabet or else you'll be waiting a while to get to it. Once you click play, expect to wait a minute or two for it to buffer. After that I didn't even bother trying movies. (did work fine on wifi using with xbmc) Trying to download files remotely using the tappin website was equally painful. Took 5min to download a 4mb file.
While the FB app was easy to setup, and backed up properly, the foldering was not good. Instead of using the album names for the folder names, the folders were a bunch of numbers. If you have a lot of photos, good luck finding the one you are looking for.
Trying to make Windows backups did not work. Seagate wants you to install Dashboard to do this but Dashboard did not see my Central so I couldn't do anything. This means you'll just have to do the Backup through windows though so not that big a deal.
I would like more of an output than a single LED light.
Other Thoughts: Seagate Support is normally fast to respond in my experience.
It does some things just fine like streaming media locally but not much else.
