G-Technology G-Drive(Gen 5) 4TB 7200 RPM Professional High-Performance EXternal Hard Drive USB 3.0/ Firewire800 Silver (0G02537)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -USB3.0 + Firewire 800
-Large Capacity
-Responsive Support

Cons: -disk5s2: I/O error.

After a month, both the original and the drive that I received after an RMA throw errors and cause Mac OS X to present the drive as read only until remounted.

Secondly, on my windows machine (when trying to troubleshoot), the drive does not present itself consistently between firewire and USB connections. Set up an NTFS partition while on USB, disconnect properly and then connect via firewire.. "Drive needs to be initialized!" The fireware update on the website was supposed to fix this, but it did not.

Other Thoughts: I suspect they got a bad batch of 4Tb hard drives going into these enclosures. Another G-Drive 1Tb that I have set up as an offsite backup has been running flawlessly.

HP LP2465 Carbonite-Silver 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cost, Screen Resolution, dual DVI-I inputs & Built in USB hub with easy access side ports. Awesome Cable management channels.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Of all the LCD panels I've used, this is by far the best. We have 7 of these in our office and they provide tremendous screen real estate for working with CAD.
