Have Had Great Luck With IronWolf Pros

Seagate IronWolf Pro 12TB NAS Hard Drive 7200 RPM 256MB Cache CMR SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal HDD ST12000NE0008
Seagate IronWolf Pro 12TB NAS Hard Drive 7200 RPM 256MB Cache CMR SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal HDD ST12000NE0008

Pros: - Fast, Reliable, Large Drives - Data Recovery - Enterprise Class / 7200 RPM

Cons: - None so far

Overall Review: When first deciding if I was going to use Seagate or WD it was a toss-up. There's great reviews and bad for both. I decided on the Synology IronWolf Pros since they're 7200 RPM vs 5200 for WD. I've had three drives running constantly for about two years without a hitch. Added 5 more drives to my NAS. It's only been a short time on the new drives, but its nice that besides S.M.A.R.T., Seagate offers their own diagnostics if your device supports it (Synology NAS does). Also with Pro you get 1 or 2 year data recovery. Some people say large HDDs or Seagate is unreliable. I've found if you purchase the high-end/enterprise drives, mean time between failure rates are high and they've been quite reliable for me. Will update if that changes.

Very Nice Portable Monitor

Pros: - Dual USB-C Ports for charging / additional input if PC only has one - Hinge, which I thought would be a con, is really nice - when used with X1 Carbon the screen is the perfect height. - Pannel is decent, bright - Extremely portable and uses very little battery power

Cons: - Honestly can't think of a con, very satisfied with this portable monitor, don't think could be more satisfied.

Overall Review: I was looking to purchase a portable monitor for productivity on the go. Looked at quite a few options, including the popular ASUS, and decided to go with the Lenovo, partly because it is being paired with an X1 Carbon, and partly because of the form factor and second USB-C port. Extremely satisfied with the purchase. I will likely be procuring more for members of my team at work.
