Cons: Plugged into my TV audio video and usb. Recognized usb in my 4S but no video
Overall Review: apple 4s no video
Pros: Fast and reliable.
Overall Review: I have both the 128 and 256 gig flash drives. I reformatted NTFS 512 to get the most data. These drives do not have to be plugged into the machine motherboard USB's, they can be plugged into the USB on the front panel. Fast and reliable, problem free.
Pros: Works as a local DVR
Cons: email, poor, no remote viewing of recorded video, no link to company for firmware upgrade. The remote uses same codes as other devices and I had to block the IR sensor and only use the mouse.
Overall Review: The email uses only poor camera motion, sends one frame of feet as they enter the frame. No way to contact Sannce. Locks up often during programming.
Pros: Rugged, have had since 2001. Powers 2 flat screens, 2 computers, sound system, fios receiver, router, 24 port switch.
Cons: Internal batteries too small
Overall Review: I ran cables out to 4 85ah marine batteries. This works very well. Ran separate house wiring (UPS)
Pros: Loaded 75 gig at 10mb/s about twice as fast as my Lexar 128 gig. Nice small package.
Overall Review: Formatted NTFS/512 and have had no problems.
Pros: Once paired it has a nice feel. The scroll and buttons work just as they should
Cons: It is very difficult to pair. Instructions are not in box, and not
quite right on newegg.
Overall Review: The mouse had me pairing other devices just to make sure the laptop bluetooth worked. After reading the instructions on the newegg site it still took awhile to get it paired.
Pros: Version B 2.03 is very stable when I substitute a new 12v power supply
Cons: Dlink has pulled all of the firmware upgrades from the website. Can not find latest firmware for the spare that I just purchased. This makes the spare useless.
Overall Review: When you update the software on Rev B to 2.03 or greater these work great with a replacement power supply. If you can't update the firmware the unit is useless.
Pros: 8 sata ports, raid
Overall Review: I have this running all 8 sata + ide dvd. Using an ATI 5570 video card, printer card, Corsair 750w power supply and an Antec 300 case. Could use more options for setting fan speed on CPU.
Pros: Fast and Cool
Overall Review: Bought 3 of these for a Raid 5 array on a Gigabyte motherboard with a quad core phenom micro. The transfer rate runs from 250mB/s -> 100mB/s. Uses 4% of CPU. Drives run cool at 30C.
Pros: Very well regulated supply. Solved my PC crashes.
Cons: no cons
Overall Review: I purchased to replace a 500w ANTEC that was letting the 3.3v supply drop to 2.8v. This stays within .1 volts and solved my crash problems.
Pros: Streams 5.1 audio over the HDMI. Does not need to be overclocked for video.
Cons: If overclocked runs too hot and crashes PC
Overall Review: I purchased to replaced a less expensive ati card that was not fast enough for an HTPC.
Pros: Just plugged it in when it first arrived and it worked at 1 gig even on just 4 pair wire for short runs.
Cons: After a while it became slow and intermittent.
Overall Review: The fix is to replace the plug in 7.5v supply. I replaced the supply with an old unregulated 7.5v supply and was instantly up and running. The switch is well made with high quality capacitors. I opened the plug in supply and it has low quality capacitors.
Pros: Connected to old wiring, cat5, and even plain old 4 pair. The switch works flawlessly.
Overall Review: Runs cool
Pros: Everything not connected with the HDMI worked flawlessly. The Phenom II 810 deneb I used ran super cool.
Cons: It uses ATI for video/audio. The video controls work in XP for full screen but not win7. It has an overscan setting that is required to get full screen that is not available in win7. The HDMI audio will only give 2.1 audio not 5.1.
Overall Review: I know that whenever I have an ATI product(video/ hdmi on this motherbaord) I will have at least 30 hours to get the software running, maybe. I bought this for home theater and will have to purchase another video card with built in audio.
Pros: I put two of these in an P4 2.8 gig box with XP using BeyondTV. Was able to record 4 channels and stream to 2 TV's at once flawlessly. The tuners are as sensitive as my most sensitive TV.
Cons: There is no media extender box ( not even the Hauppage MediaMVP-HD) that will let you look at the guide, record, or erase. That means for all practical purposes you need a separate setup for each TV.
Overall Review: Emailed Hauppauge, since they sell an extender, and they have no plans to add guide, record, erase functionality to their extender. Too bad because if they had this capability it would be a great system.
Pros: I was able to play media files over my network
Cons: The BeyondTV FAQ's for the MediaMVP do not apply to the MediaMVP-HD. This means the skins developed for the older product do not work with this one. As a media player does not compare to the Seagate Home Theater Plus.
Overall Review: I purchased for use with Hauppauge tuners and BeyondTV software. This media box, despite the controls on the remote, will not let you see a guide, record, or erase. It is pretty much useless as a PVR system from your remote TV. It's sole function is playback over the network.
Pros: The drive is fast, quiet and low power
Cons: Corrupts data when 2 drives are used for RAID 1 on a SIL3124 plug in card. Hitachi software to change options on the drive will not find drives on a USB adapter or sil3124 plug in card. Hitachi support does not answer emails.
Overall Review: I had WD 500gig green drives in my RAID array with no problems. I will purchase WD 1TB drives now.
