Pros: Could work for a short time, and was among inexpensive ones.

Cons: I had 2TB and 3TB versions of the model (DM001). Both became unusable in two years or less. Looking on information from other users, this is a normal life expectancy for this defective series. One my drive was connected to a PC, and the problem was recognized early as many bag blocks, and it was replaced, but the second one was on a remote device and it has lost its formatting and partition with all data.
It is rather unpleasant that Seagate did not make some kind of recall and replacement of this defective product. For me this is moving Seagate to the last place in the list of HDD makers, and I will be able to purchase a Seagate HDD only with very big discounts, not higher that 2/3 of a price for a comparable WD drive (while before that I valued them equally)

Other Thoughts: The new drives of the model might be made differently and much later, and might survive for a few years more, I do not know this. But remember, you can receive one from Seagate production runs being guarantied to fail quickly, as many of them. And a loss is not what we want from a "storage".

D-Link DGS-2205 Unmanaged 5-Port Green Technology Desktop Switch

1 out of 5 eggs It is d-Link - dead as expected 04/15/2012

This review is from: D-Link DGS-2205 Unmanaged 5-Port Green Technology Desktop Switch

Pros: Worked for a few months

Cons: I was out of home for less than two days, and upon return has found that my living room switch (connected to a media PC, blue ray player, Dishnetwork) is not connecting anymore. I was disappointing. When I disconnected it to replace with a spare (a have three more "green" gigabit switches active in my house, and had one extra unit), I was surprised to see it was a D-Link. I did not use D-Link products anymore, I do not remember any of them were working - switches were dead, wifi was loosing signal and routes were loosing computers, and even power supplies on D-links were not powering those. Perhaps I did a mistake somehow, or receive it instead of a real product. Thus, one more peace of trash from the same brand. Other switches are not D-Links, they are working and will work.

Other Thoughts: In part, it is my mistake, I knew well that D-Link will not work. It is in a deserved place now - landfill.

Pros: Good price for the CPU and GPU speed (all experience values but HDD in Win7 are from 6.9 to 7.3). Good screen for the price. Large keyboard and 5 or 6 speakers in its large body. Fingerprint reader can work from BIOS and transfers its result to Windows (double-password/single-finger protection)

Cons: WiFi card should be replaced, may not start after sleep or will recover for a few minutes after any suspend, and may totally freeze the computer (restart only by the power switch), if you do not wait for its readiness.
Hard drive is slow (5.7 in Win7). The lowest-end camera looks strange above such monitor. Sound could be decent with better speakers installed. All 4 memory slots are full. I did not find any tuning for the fingerprint reader sensitivity/security

Other Thoughts: I spend 15.99 on N 6200, and now WiFi network is always ready, wakes up before I can enter a password or move a finger on a reader. 300Mb/s, and control by built-in software and a button is even better than with original one.
I think to try a SSD as a boot/Windows drive in the second position.
