Pros: The price is relativity cheap - but you'll only get what you pay for - probably much less!!!
Cons: I have discarded over a DOZEN of these DM Series Hard Drives after they totally failed with two years. Seagate knows they have a real lemon on their hands with these drives, but continues to pump them out to unsuspecting customers. Unless you don't care about any data that you might store on one of these DM drives - you should never buy one of these DM Series drives! Newegg should stop selling these drives, since they (Newegg) know how many 1000s of these failed drives have been discarded.
Other Thoughts: On the bright side, Seagate also manufacturers an outstanding NAS Hard Drive, the VN Series, that has none of the defects of the DM Series. The NAS VN Series drives are just a few dollars more than the substandard DM drives, and worth every extra penny. If you're looking for a solid performing storage drive, then buy any of the VN Series of NAS drives, they work flawlessly, are fast, are quiet, are cool running, and have a much better warranty.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Had been waiting and waiting for Seagate to release higher capacity NAS drives like this. I almost bought a WD Red drive, but I'm very glad I waited for the new Seagate high-capacity NAS drives. The drive runs cool and is really quick for reading and writing data.
Cons: These drives are a bit pricy, but good quality equipment THAT WILL LAST, is never usually cheap.
Other Thoughts: I have several RAID arrays, and use Seagate NAS drives in all of them. I'm extremely satisfied with these Seagate NAS drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: LSI products are usually very reliable and well constructed.
Cons: This Adapter will work just fine IF only 3 of the 4 ports have drives attached. However, no matter what I did to try and get it to function in Windows Server 2008 R2 environment, once that 4th drive array cable was attached, it would not boot any further. To bad, since otherwise it seemed OK. I suspect that there was an upper memory conflict with the other hardware reserved space on the computer, and it just couldn't get past it. Incidentally, a pair of HighPoint Rocket (NOT RocketRAID) SGL2720 adapters, with a total of four (4) SATA 3 Ports = 16 drives, did work just fine - so go figure?
Other Thoughts: Newegg accepted a return for this incompatible product for a full refund. So all is well that ends well.READ FULL REVIEW
