Pros: Takes great pictures. I got more than what I expected.
Cons: It quit on me after a couple of weeks of good use. Lens didn't zoom out and open when I turn it on and It keeps giving me a message in the window that says "turn power off and on again" I "Googled" the problem and found 1 more person with a similar problem.
Overall Review: This is my third Sony cam. Never had any problems with them before. It's disappointing but it won't stop me from buying Sony again
Not great nor good, just... OK, but not for the money
Pros: Capacity and dimensions
Cons: The USB cable is not standard. I haven't had any issue with it yet but I'm still trying to make up my mind of I want to buy a spare cable or bite the bullet and sell the drive. The drive is noticeably slower than any other external drives I've owned. This is my biggest complain to the point I don't want it any more. Even the little things like coming on when I plug it in and to "safe disconnect" take forever!
Overall Review: It's not worth the price. If you like speed... at least average speed, stay away from it.
after 18 months of use...
Pros: Great picture if you are right in front of it.
Cons: Back when I bought it, I paid double the price, so I expected a little more than 18 months before it started giving headaches. It takes about 12 to 20 tries for it to come on after touching the power button or pressing the button at the remote. The light comes on, I hear some clicking inside and then it stops. This goes on over and over until it finally decides to come on.
Overall Review: I'm sure my problem was "luck of the draw." I've been buying Samsung products for years and never had a bad experience with one. I'm away from home for now but when I get back in early April, I'll try to RMA. Buy a pair of speakers with it. Sound is what is expected of an LCD monitor with integrated speakers. That's just the way things are.
I expected more
Pros: Acceptable transfer speeds for large files.
Cons: Bulky- I can't use the USB port next to it on most laptops. Also, the rubber sleeve that houses the circuit board just slides off when I try to unplug it. Small files, like a folder with mp3s, take forever and a day to copy (compared to my 8gb Cruzer).
Overall Review: I expected more from Corsair. Yeah, maybe I received the defective unit out of the batch and I can RMA it, but I need it now, not a month from now.
New and unimproved
Pros: Many!!! if you have a v4 or older.
Cons: It worked OK for the first couple of months. Then I started noticing my internet getting slow. So, I unplugged the connection to the router and plugged it straight into my network adapter and everything worked fine. Figured I just needed to reset the router, so I did. Once, twice, and sometimes three times a day. A couple of weeks after, it would entirely drop the connection. So the new firmware was put out- 1.01.0 I believe. Now I’m not dropping my connection anymore but I’m back to it slowing down- a lot and every time the power gets unplugged it resets to factory defaults, so I have to restore the configs every time. This is something it wasn’t doing before. Huh? Linksys customer support? Gotta admit they’ve tried to be helpful, but I’m not impressed. Also found out that the other WRT54Gs I’ve setup were v4 or below. Mine is a v6 which is now loaded with proprietary software, not Linux like the before.
Overall Review: Really want a Linksys? Buy a WRT54GL.
