Seagate Backup Plus for Mac 4TB USB 3.0 Mac & PC Storage Model STCB4000102

1 out of 5 eggs Avoid like the plague 05/05/2013

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus for Mac 4TB USB 3.0 Mac & PC Storage Model STCB4000102

Pros: none really

Cons: This unit is NOT as advertised.
It does NOT come with a Firewire 800 cable, and Seagate does not make one for this drive.
The product advertises that it can also be converted to Thunderbolt... but BEWARE... the adapter costs almost as much as the drive.

Other Thoughts: You should ONLY purchase this drive if you ONLY have a requirement for a USB 3.0 connection. It is totally useless for older macs with firewire ports and it is incredibly overpriced for newer macs with thunderbolt (as the adapter is insanely expensive.. in fact... newegg has even discontinued it... so you can't even get it from them)

JetWay J7F4K1G5DS-LF VIA NanoBGA C7 Processor VIA CN700 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo

Pros: low power consumption
twin gigabit lan for house router implementation

Cons: plug in a PATA cable and the board will not boot

Other Thoughts: got this board on the strength of the reviews for the earlier model, but with wanting to run RAID on drives taking up both SATA ports, I'm now looking at a useless piece of equipment as I'm unable to hook up a CD-ROM to the EIDE because even an unconnected cable plug in the EIDE slot stops the boot.
I guess they'll get around to fixing the problem eventually... well at least that's why I give it three stars, but I was pretty tempted to give it just one. Don't the JETWAY people even check out simple stuff like this before shipping a product?
