500 GIG Archive EXT HDD
Pros: 1) Virtually Endless Memory 2) Speed of Transfer 3) Ease of Use 4) Simplicity of design & Durable
Cons: 1) No firewire port
Overall Review: This is a great EXT HDD for anyone looking for extra space. Great speed, easy to use, and fast. The only con is no firewire port.
100 Gig Internal Laptop HDD
Pros: 1) Fast Transfer Speeds 2) Lots of Memory 3) Raid 0 Compatable
Cons: 1) No HDD Screws included (kind of important) 2) Slightly Noisey
Overall Review: This is a great internal HDD for my laptop. I already had one, this was my second. I raid 0'ed it to my main HDD, and it works great. The only downsides to this was that it did not come with screws, and it is a little bit noisey sometimes (just like my other one). The noise is not loud though, some headphones or a playing music/movies/games will not be interfered with by the noise. Gread product, wish it had come with screws.
Affordable, Super Fast, Easy Use
Pros: + Very Affordable + Very Easy Setup (W/Included CD Program) + Features ability to make a network shared drive (w/ext HDD) + Nice Display (high vis, multiple displays, IE: view download speed, security status, network HDD status, etc) + Powerful WIFI
Cons: - Tall and kind of bulky - Network shared drive has no password protection, anyone with access to the WIFI has access to the Networkds EXT HDD Not too many Cons yet, only had it a few days. No dropped internet or slow speeds to note yet.
Overall Review: The router's Setup CD is quick and thorough. I would say a tech Newbie could succeed with it. The network HDD is only protected by the WIFI encryption (I'm using WPA2 AES), which slightly uncomforting (any guests get access to my WIFI & unintentionally HDD). I'm happy with my purchase so far, and I really like the new router.
IPOD 80 GIG
Pros: Small Size, Easy to carry Good Battery Life HUGE memory
Cons: When I got it, it worked well, and I loaded all my music into it. Then for some reason, it said that it had been corrupted (after proper ejection procedures). I had to reformat it all over again. Weird glitch.
Overall Review: This has more than enough memory, especially when considering the compression of the Music through iTunes.
