Great external OR internal drives7/7/2019 2:23:56 PM

Pros: Fast backup speeds initially - starts at 180 MB/s then eventually when filling drive drops to 110 MB/S Drives Quiet Stay Cool White Label Helium Drives USB 3

Cons: 5400 RPM drives

Overall Review: White label Helium Drives at 5400 RPM. PERFECT for backup running about 170 MB/s. I used to have Seagate External hard drives but when they went to 8TB, their reliability and speed went down. Switched over to these and never looked back. Bought several 8TB and 10TB versions for server backup which then is offsite backup. Highly Recommend!!

So far, so Good7/7/2019 2:19:25 PM

Pros: Works Large Capacity 5 Year Warranty Better Value than Iron Wolf/Barracuda/14TB drives 7200 RPM Fast transfer rates

Cons: Cost - this will always be a complaint with someone!

Overall Review: Works perfectly in SuperMicro 847 case. Formatted is 12.733. Before anyone starts complaining, all manufactures state their capacity in TB meaning 14 TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. So a true TB is 2^40 power. 12.733*2^40 = 14 TB. Same is for WD, Hitachi, etc. So far, humming along just fine in Raid 10 Configuration. Used for Work System Backups off laptops so very fit for purpose.

What a disappointment12/20/2017 6:51:59 PM

Pros: -Keys seem like they would be very durable

Cons: -They were on back order forever on here and other sites -They reduce brightness significantly -I wish I could have seen the keys sooner as the W looked great. The font is horrible for Home key, etc. In fact, they have three letter abbreviations -Not easy to type (granted I only replace a handful of keys, but weird feel to these

Overall Review: Newegg site is having issues, but I will certainly return these (good I purchased Premier). When my Gigabyte mechanical keyboard dies, I will simply replace the keys on my Corsar K70 with those from the Osium keyboard. The ONLY complaint with the K70 is they have on dual keys the dual item on the bottom, so hard to see in the dark which is why I wanted replacement keys.

So far, so good12/12/2017 8:44:08 AM

Pros: These are superfast with decent RAID rebuild times. I have these set up in RAID 10 with no issues and performance is outstanding. Drives are also very quiet.

Cons: Price - can never be cheap enough :)

Overall Review: From a performance perspective, outshines WD gold drives - however the WD gold drives give you a five year warranty and these are only 3 year unless you go pro

Verified Owner
Ownership: 1 month to 1 year
Started off Great - went downhill2/6/2016 8:07:00 AM

Pros: Great sound initially Loved the vibrations Long cord

Cons: 2 of 3 already failed with increasing static in ears Filled out warranty requests and have NEVER heard a peep from them

Overall Review: If the quality was there and they responded to service claims, they would be 5 star. Based upon support and short duration, do NOT buy at this time.

An Excellent Replacement to Onboard RAID5/12/2015 6:36:47 PM

Pros: 16 Ports on this card! Easy to install and setup Great Performance FAST Beats onboard RAID Bought 3 of these

Cons: MaxView software can certainly be improved - but I can work with the card without ever touching this software!

Overall Review: Got sick and tired of the Intel on board RAID always getting corrupted and having to go through a royal pain process to attempt to recover. On board is not true RAID unlike these cards which do support true RAID. While you do not get RAID level 5 or 6, the RAID levels provided should be more than sufficient for many. Love the support right off the bat for 16 drives. Will no longer buy motherboards with tons of ports - just buy this card instead! Add on a 40 MM fan to keep the card at around 40C
