Only complaint (and it's widespread) about the Prism is that it's so quiet. Especially the mic. It's just the USB soundcard though.

I've been using the Siberia line for years now and have to say, they are a great quality headset and the ones I've had have been longer lasting than other brands I've used.

The only negative I can point out is that the microphones are usually of lower quality, and not great at picking up sound. You may be forced to use the microphone boosting options in Windows, which will lower the mic quality more, and add a bit of background noise. I bought a desktop mic instead of using the one on the headset.

Seagate IronWolf 4TB NAS hard drive £109.99 delivered @ box.co.uk

I brought a different hard drive from box.co.uk. Drive arrived in a cardboard box in a DPD bag. No padding what so ever. Beware.

Original Poster

Just a quick update for anybody still considering this... My drive arrived yesterday, first impressions are good. It's extremely quiet. I can't even hear the difference between it spinning and not spinning, and there's no noise when data is being read or written. The PC uses about 4W more power idling and 6W when the disk is in use.

However the packaging by box.co.uk wasn't great. It was wrapped in an air filled hard drive pouch inside a plastic bag, but half of the air pockets had burst so part of the drive had no protection at all. SeaTools reports no errors so I'm fairly confident with it, but if I were to buy another one I wouldn't choose this company! And they used Hermes, who (in my area at least) are known to throw stuff around.

I don't know where you are getting your information, drives "intended" for desktop use are the lowest quality (Actually it's probably external drives) and will not be as robust as a NAS drive, intended for multi access and more read/write cycles. The fact that they are able to be run 24/7 is a positive, not a negative. I don't know why you would think they are meant to stay on for long periods anyway, it's not like they have to get up to temperature or spin at a constant speed, they will be accessed whenever they are requested, the same way if they were in a NAS.

But I would really only use them as data storage rather than running an OS from one.

Don't buy Seagate unless you're going to store data you don't mind losing. Absolute garbage quality drives. Do yourself a favour and buy WD or HGST instead.

They have gigabit ethernet ports on, so you'll get 1000Mbps from adapter to device if your other hardware supports it and you're using decent cat 5e or cat 6 cable. The 1200Mbps between the adapters over the powerlines will also show some benefit even if you are only using 100Mpbs connections on the ends of the adapters.

The size of 4k files are pretty big so having them on my SSD is not really an option.

Great drive, price gone back up now at Box, but still on Amazon for £88.82 . I have an older 1TB hybrid on an i7 running VMWARE with various VMs. Caching in the 8GB NAND is useful of much faster reboots. Seagate offers 5 years warranty on this so I would say this £89 is a cheap price with NAND cache (worth £10-£15) plus 5 years warranty (worth £10).

Avoid Zyxel... have had three out of four Zyxel adapters fail on me just out of warranty and didn't replace. Tech support told me to use surge protectors, even though instructions clearly state you shouldn't to get proper performance. Since moved over to Tp-link and never looked back.

Agree the ZyXels support is good they replaced one of mine that failed without any problems. That said found the 500mbps range ones to be poor. Slow sync speeds even when plugged into the same double socket and even worse across the house. Was expecting much better considering the house/wiring is brand new

From what I've heard of ZyXel their connection tends to be more stable than tp link. Will have to do more research.
