Seagate FreeAgent Theater+ USB 2.0 / Ethernet HD Media Player Only STCEA201-RK
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: The only reason I bought the FAT+ was to stream NetFlix. The device was able to connect to the internet (download firmware update, YouTube app, Flickr app worked.) When opening the NetFlix app it said it couldn't connect to the local network, but it was able to connect to the internet, check for update and connect to NetFlix server. I got one red light and three green lights and it would't let me get pass this screen. I tried all the networking tricks that I knew of (DHCP vs Static IP, connect to router vs cable modem, disabled firewall) and couldn't make it work.

4 out of 5 eggs Good Motherboard 11/19/2009

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X48-DQ6 LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It's a motherboard that works. It works with my Intel Q9400 and OCZ PC2-6400 Gold 8GB Quad Kit.

Cons: The motherboard comes with a "Crazy Cool" which is heatsink that goes on the opposite side of where the CPU is. I followed the instruction to install the CPU first. In fact you need to install the "Crazy Cool" because the CPU is covering one of the screw for the heatsink.

Other Thoughts: You need to get the latest bios from the manufacturer website in order to take advantage of Intel VT. Once you flash bios the VT option will appear in the setting.

Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1.5TB USB 2.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works with Windows 2003. Firmware is already up-to-date.

Cons: I bought the drive for backup purposes and it's on 24/7. A "click" can be heard when you try to open a folder or a file. It will take up to 10 seconds after the "click" to open the folder for you. This behavior will go away if the drive is not idle.

It worked for 4 months and then I was flooded with error messages. I changed the policy from "Optimize for performance" to "Optimize for quick removal" and it seemed to get rid of the errors. These are the errors I was getting:

The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.

An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2 during a paging operation.

{Delayed Write Failed} Windows was unable to save all the data for the file . The data has been lost.
