Drobo CTP1D99US1R Transporter Sync Private Cloud - Gigabit NAS for USB External Drive

5 out of 5 eggs Great DropBox replacement that is secure 03/20/2015

This review is from: Drobo CTP1D99US1R Transporter Sync Private Cloud - Gigabit NAS for USB External Drive

Pros: Is a complete DropBox replacement. The software and firmware has matured and the mobile apps are much improved. Pay once, and you have a private cloud for the life of the product. In many cases the Transporter line surpasses the efficiency of even dedicated NAS setups.

Cons: -USB 2.0.
When dealing with remote syncing this isn't a problem, as USB 2.0 will saturate most broadband connections. However on the local network this is a huge drawback that slows down the sync process when dealing with large files. If you are just syncing documents and pictures this wont really affect you.

Other Thoughts: When the sync was first released it was problematic and the firmware was missing several features. Fast forward to today, and this is no longer the case. It is clear the company's merger with Drobo is yielding excellent fruit. It's a fantastic cloud replacement that should make anyone wonder why they continue to keep their data on 3rd party servers, and in some cases pay to do so.

ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI EEB Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Dual socket LGA 2011 board. Expansion to the moon if you wish. More bells and whistles then any would actually use.

Cons: Not for the novice. If you are looking at this and wondering why you need it, then you don't. Save your money and time and look elsewhere.

Lenovo ThinkPad X230 2320HNU 12.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quality, sturdy build. Thinkpad line. Battery life.

Cons: The IPS panel should be mandatory and the default option. For $50 more this is a no brainer.

Other Thoughts: The reseller was very quick, and the box was well packaged. They did however inform me via email that the laptop had the IPS screen, but in fact only had the TN screen. Had I known this before hand, it would have certainly influenced my decision to purchase.
