Pros: This monitor was manufactured in 2011. Zero dead pixels. Good viewing angles.
Cons: The brightness was set from factory at 100% and that was barely bright enough for acceptable when fully warmed up. The picture is not nearly as sharp as it should be. Color is ok. In sum I have LG L200ME's from 2008 that are much brighter and better looking. My 10 year old Dell FP2001 looks much better. If return shipping wasn't so high I would have returned this. Glad they ran out of stock because I wont be ordering any more of these.
Overall Review: Put your money into something else.
WARNING! Serious security flaws!
Pros: See below:
Cons: Disable UICloud and FTP immediately! Don't connect a drive to the router, don't use the network segment to serve files, and don't face the router naked to the internet with out a firewall. Asus should issue an apology AND send the new products to a respected third party firm to probe for security flaws--clearly they are not capable of overseeing this. I want independent verification that these will be safe to use after a firmware update. Search: "Dear Asus router user: You’ve been pwned, thanks to easily exploited flaw" Hackers expose eight-month-old Asus weakness by leaving note on victims' drives. Asus has an F rating with the BBB. They knew about this and chose not to do anything till the group leaks the flaw. No wonder they have a BBB F rating. SHAME!
BEWARE DISCONTINUED PRODUCT
Pros: Looks good and has good reviews but . . .
Cons: . . . product is DISCONTINUED 4/18/2013 at SYNOLOGY website. The egg should reflect this. I feel had. How long will this be supported/updated? We dont know. Probably a few years. Good Luck. Not good enough, especially at this price point. Please just communicate Synology, otherwise clients will be not happy. What do I do now send it back and get something else or what? Seezsh!
240GB SSDs make this obsolete and a bad buy
Pros: Fast encrypted drive option. Was good but expensive before SSD.
Cons: Not that fast Very expensive per GB and for ok performance.
Overall Review: Why buy this when you can get 240GB SSD on sale for this price? Except for encryption or secure wiping there is no reason I can think of to use this HD.
