Pros: Just worked while it lasted, there is not much to say
Cons: This morning heard a constant beep. The unit was showing F02 on its display and a computer connected to the unit was down. The UPS was only powering a NAS which requires about 170W at most (usually 112W), there is no way it was overloaded or stressed out. This is my first CyberPower UPS, the rest in the house are APC Back-UPS units. Some of the APC units were running for 5 years already and not a single issue. This CyberPower unit is only 2 months old! I guess I am going to need to send it to CyberPower at my expense and will probably receive a refurbished unit at best... Not good! You pay for a new device and just two months later it literally turns into something else. I guess this is going to be my first and last CyberPower UPS. I have 7 servers at home, each requires its own UPS and I suppose this CyberPower UPS could not pass a simple test. Sad! Without competition APC is going to always charge high $$$$ for their devices
Other Thoughts: UPS is a device designed to protect your very expensive equipment and you expect to rely on stuff like this. When it fails within just 2 months of service while lightly used, it does not say a whole lot about QC or the materials CyberPower uses to manufacture their devices. This unit (if and when replaced/repaired; do not know yet about the support CyberPower provides) will probably end up powering a TV or something, but not a server.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nicely built, has a Web GUI, tons of features. Bought it since it has support for 802.3ad (link aggregation - LAG/LACP)
Cons: Unfortunately, current firmware (f/w 1.0.0 Build 20140626) is buggy - LACP does not work as expected - packets have wrong length - 128 byte instead of 124. People say there is a beta firmware out there in the wild by TP-LINK which addresses this issue, but it remains to be seen - no official version has been released yet though it has been almost a month since the problem was filed with TP-LINK support.
Other Thoughts: A bit too expensive to have the switch as an unmanaged one and until TP-LINK fixes the issue decribed in Cons it cannot be used as intended, thus only three eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDX-240G-G25
Pros: Fast as any other SSDs out there...
Cons: Died after 2 years of service in a notebook... Sad! Always thought of SanDisk as a reliable brand... Right until the SSDs died.. Suddenly! With no sign of weakness... Last Saturday tried to boot my notebook... It almost made all the way to the login screen and then froze... Never happened before! And apparently never will... Upon reboot the notebook did not detect it. Went south and took with it a lot of info I acquired over the business trip. Cr@p!
Other Thoughts: Only after 2 years? Last time I checked the drive had roughly about 2TB of data written on it. Very disappointed with SanDisk! Time to find a new maker!READ FULL REVIEW
