Creative Inspire T10 10 Watts RMS 2.0 Speaker System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Very good 2.0 system for the price. 11/22/2013

This review is from: Creative Inspire T10 10 Watts RMS 2.0 Speaker System

Pros: Reasonably compact, magnetically-shielded, great sound, simple controls.

Cons: None that I've come across thus far.

Other Thoughts: This turned out to be a great purchase. I'd spent considerable time looking for a solid pair of desktop speakers, and these seem to fit the bill perfectly.

This isn't a pair of bookshelf speakers, but it seems to perform like a fair pair, and they pack a lot of quality sound into a smallish design.

Western Digital WD Green WD5000AZRX 500GB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Allowed me to rebuild a MyBook Premium II disk pack.

Cons: Western Digital

Other Thoughts: I received this from Newegg and bought it on sale. Newegg is great and it shipped immediately!

As for the drive itself, it is a typical Western Digital drive. I have been buying hard drives since the days of MFM/RLL interfaces, and build quality of WD drives and enclosures has, in my direct experience, gone down dramatically in the past 10-15 years.

This drive will fail, suddenly and without warning, just as its predecessor did. I had to buy another WD drive, as the MyBook series of disk packs seem to use a soft-RAID approach that requires WD drives. At least, Western Digital specifically says that if another drive is used, your data is at immediate risk.

Much as I hate WD, my data is more important than the amount of money required to feed the best with another hard drive purchase.

I'll maybe take this drive (slow, but "green") with me to a future "cold-storage" external enclosure.

Long story short: sure, it works (for now), but had I any choice in the matter, I WOULD NOT TRUST A WD DRIVE TO HOLD MY DATA.
