Most Favorable Review

Work's fine.

NORCO C-SFF8087-4S Discrete to SFF-8087 (Reverse breakout) Cable
NORCO C-SFF8087-4S Discrete to SFF-8087 (Reverse breakout) Cable

Pros: I have 6 Norco cases and use a number of these and never had a problem.

Cons: Doesn't come in purple.

Overall Review: I don't understand how someone can give this 1 star because they didn't research the type of cable needed for thair application (forward or reverse). When used to aggregate 4 SATA ports into one SFf-8087 connector so that discrete ports can be plugged into a backplane this is tho cable to get. Use a forward cable for Norco RPC-4020 and reverse for 4220 or 4224.

Overall Review: At least I could have got some smoke.

Big honking drive.

Pros: These are reliable. I had 8 1tb in a server. This is faster and frees up 7 slots. For storage these can't be beat. I ordered yesterday and they are already half full today. Must have had them on the truck waiting for me to push the button.A+++++

Cons: For what it is it can't be improved. Sure there are faster drives but with this I can watch a movie across my network wirelessly and have no glitches. Buy a SSD for the C drive or an intensively used one and populate the rest with these.

Best large drive going.

Pros: I have over 50 of the 2tb drives with no failures. They are used mainly for A/V storage. With so many drives power is an issue so the green feature is a good thing. I gan transfer 60-70MBps across the network Win7 to Win7.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: So far I only had one WD drive fail and it was the black series...go figure. At these prices I don't do raid but simply mirror drives. It's cheaper that backing up to DVD. The WD RMA process is simple and quick. It will take alot to get me to switch brands. I am waiting for the 10TB drives now.
