    WD Red drives?

    Can these be used in a non nas? The greens have a poor warranty and there are no 3TB Blacks.

    So, I need 24 TB of storage...

    Just make sure you do have a backup at all times and that the delta between backup and production is an acceptable loss. raid 5 cannot really support 15TB upon a rebuild.

    Newegg RMA Technicians Are Breaking My Returns

    I would just like to warn people that using a CC chargeback does not remove the owed debt even if you do get your money back. So yes if you buy a $100 product from a company and it is defective, you return it and they screw you over like in this post. You call your bank and they find in your...

    Gigabyte Z77-UD5H, when will it be usable?

    Maybe if you ran it over day and days but an unstable system will fail the test within 2-3 minutes of running if it is infact unstable. prime95 could take hours or days to yeild that result. In fact if you were doing any sort of scientific computing, what these programs are doing is pretty...

    Best HDD Clone utility?

    You don't want to clone a failing hard drive, as errors and corrupt data can be copied over without you even knowing it. By cloning I mean a byte ordered 1:1 copy where the drives are identical. You usually do this with something like dd(1). Certain tools do exist to try and minimize copy of...

    Which tablets can play HD content?

    Now before you say that they all can, I know for a fact they can't. Even some with HDMI ports can't actually play real 720P or 1080i mkv files. So which tablets can actually play 1080i movies without hiccup. I would settle for 720p as well but if it can do 1080 then it can do 720.

    Wattage of the Netgear FS105

    Just to make this public knowledge. I bought the netgear gs105 instead and they run at 5 Watts idle and 6 Watts under 7MB/s load. They really shouldn't be pulling that many watts when idle, even though it is marketed as green I don't see it.

    Do BAD SECTORS get 'transferred' by Cloning?

    Bad sectors are added to what is known as the glist on hard drives. Once the drives firmware realizes a sector is bad, it maps the sector out and uses a backup one, and you have no access to it anymore, unless you actually attach a new controller.
