Pros: Fast when it works
Cons: I have had this router for almost a year, every time the unit loses power the green power light comes back blinking indicating firmware corruption. That requires downloading the newest firmware from Netgear and pushing it to the router using FTP from my laptop. I have done this over half a dozen times in the last year.
The unit is plugged into a decent quality APC UPS and does not generally get unplugged. Just this evening I was rearranging cables and unplugged the router by accident, time for a firmware update. Not my first Netgear router but definitely my last.
This review is from: OCZ Diesel 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBDSL16G
Pros: Yes. It is a 16gb flash drive which can be used for storage.
Cons: Large transfers of single files (large AVI movies) would start at 3-4Mbit per second but then slow down to a crawling 375-500KB per second. The same USB port with a corsair voyager will maintain 20+ Mbit per second. I bought two of these units on special and they both behave this way on multiple computers/laptops.
They also fail XBox 360 performance check for game/expansion pack storage and it recommends to not use them for normal gameplay. They will still hold music, videos, and your profile if you so choose.
Other Thoughts: Wish I had spent the extra $5 to get a couple more rubber covered Corsair Voyagers. I checked other peoples reviews and they said speed was average..... Not in my USB thumb drive world they aren't. Dog slow.
Being OCZ and having such amazing Solid State Hard Drives you would figure their thumb drives would kick behind and chew bubble gum but such is not the case.
Pros: Newegg shipping of OEM harddrives has improved 100 fold from a year ago. The drives came in plastic carriers, wrapped in paper and foam.
Of the two drives I ordered for third Raid 1, 2TB array using samsung drives, one of the drives failed redundancy checks. I still gave the drive 5 stars. I just happened to get a bad one. Technically that is 1 out of 6. I have four of the previous 203 model and they are going strong after 6 months serving up movies and music.
Cons: Return shipping costs on replacement.... It sucks but it has to be done. Newegg can't test every drive that goes through their doors. That is up to the manufacturer.READ FULL REVIEW
