Not at all durable.12/8/2019 5:22:26 PM

Pros: -small form factor -not expensive

Cons: -not at all durable

Overall Review: I don't use these very often. I write them and that's it. Today I tried to rewrite one and it failed. It won't mount, won't format. I tried this on two different PCs with same results.

Smaller than the previous version.2/9/2019 7:08:18 AM

Pros: Flash keeps getting less expensive.

Cons: - No more dust cap - Smaller than the previous version by about 1% (120127488 vs. 121307136.) That's not a big deal unless you want to copy the image from an older Ultra Fit to the new one. It won't fit.

Can't write DVDs8/9/2015 12:15:34 PM

Pros: Seems well constructed.

Cons: Can't write DVDs on either Linux or Windows.

Overall Review: I made a bunch of coasters trying to burn a DVD. I checked the BYTECC web site for a firmware upgrade and did not find one.

Great for offsite backup12/6/2010 7:35:27 AM

Pros: Small, efficient and quiet.

Cons: None for me. But could use space for one more internal 3.5" drive.

Overall Review: I bought this to house an offsite backup server at my son's place. I stuffed two 2TB drives in it, added 1 GB RAM and installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server. I set it up for wake-on-LAN and in the middle of the night my backup script wakes this box up, copies data over and when complete, a script on the box itself shuts it down. I checked power usage and even when up, it only uses 35W. The drives are mirrored so I "only" get about 2TB of storage.

Small, efficient, but...7/8/2010 6:40:31 AM

Pros: Small form factor, low power usage (35W - 40W with two drives.) Quiet.

Cons: Insufficient power to reliably start two hard drives. Lack of availability of Foxconn support site.

Overall Review: I bought this with two 2TB hard drives to make my own NAS. On a cold start, I frequently get a blank screen or only one drive shows up as a boot option. I tried to see if there is an updated BIOS to download from the Foxconn support site, but it is only occasionally up and exceedingly slow. Once it's up and running, it's just fine. I've done limited testing with Wake On Lan and that seems to work either from suspend or shutdown. (Running Ubuntu Server 10.04)
