3 out of 5 eggs DS716+, nice compact unit. 05/31/2016

This review is from: Synology DS716+II Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Lots of features and the DSM 6.0 is easy to operate. TortoiseSVN is easy to setup for file version control and the app is part of the Synology software.

Cons: The support for the Synology NAS may have a problem. I would suggest you see the Synology forums about this and other units.
I have a DS713+ which has been running for over 4 years, purchased from Newegg. It's been running 24/7 with no problems.
The DSM's, since 5.2-5565, have had a problem and Synology support is flooded with contacts. The hardware is good and will server well, just don't upgrade the DSM until you check.

2 out of 5 eggs When it comes up 04/01/2014

This review is from: IOGEAR GUC2020DW6 USB 2.0 External DVI Video Card

Pros: cheap way to attach extra monitors

Cons: On my Asus 6PX58D machine, this adapter only powers up half the time I boot the computer. Installed all the new drivers. I have to unplug the usb cable and reconnect. All my icons get scrambled.

5 out of 5 eggs Very nice enclosure for optical drive 09/03/2010

This review is from: StarTech InfoSafe SAT5210U2E Aluminum 5.25" Silver eSATA USB 2.0 to SATA Optical Drive Enclosure

Pros: Solid construction with nice slide out tray. Tray held in with 2 thumb screws. Screws provided for drive installation. Comes with a USB cable and drivers for Win98 if needed. I installed the optical drive (iHSB112 BD) and connected eSATA to computer. Win7 Ultimate installed the necessary drivers and the Intel Storage Console.
The fan is whisper quiet!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I use the genuine StarTech ESATA cable, 5SATA3 which is a shielded cable.
My thought is if the enclosure has to be RMA'd 2 or 3 times, there is something wrong in the computer or the cable used (assuming Vista or Win7)
