Pros: Looks nice. Comes with nice, bright flashing LED lights and stuff. It's too bad that comcast says the device is "too new" to be listed in their database of compatible devices.
Cons: I'm sure ZyXel makes fine products.....This is more of a comcast issue than a ZyXel one.
Overall Review: Hey Comcast, Let's get with the program!!!!
Pros: Speed isn't an issue for me as my laptop has a built-in card reader. I'm more concerned about bad sectors that can corrupt data and so far, NONE.
Cons: These are still a little pricey.
Pros: This device plays almost everything I throw at it. It is easy to use and is 5.1 surround capable. Firmware updates occur regularly for best performance.
Cons: It doesn't play .dts files. It's also worth noting that the hard disk is still running even though the device appears to be turned off.
Overall Review: I wish the device had an option to allow the hard disk to shut off completely in order to prolong disk life.
Pros: This board has an Intel socket 1156 as well as an H55 chipset.
Onboard DVI & HDMI is a plus.
Cons: Unfortunately, this board is very unstable and quirky. It just doesn't like video cards. This board also gave me trouble with a ZIP250 drive and a Lite-On SATA DVD-RAM Drive.
After 3 seperate BIOS upgrades, I can't put any graphics cards on this platform without the operating system freezing or blue screeening on me.
Overall Review: Don't know if it's the particular design or the Intel H55 chipset at fault here....
Pros: Looks nice and rugged. Enclosure is made of extruded aluminum.
Cons: Please note: This enclosure DOES NOT have an eSATA port. The port is the standard SATAII used on hard drives and such. You will need to purchase or use a SATA cable for this but it does come with an adapter for computers that have an eSATA port.
Overall Review: Kinda wish the listing was more specific about this technicality.
There is a difference between SATAII & eSATA connectors.
