On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Squire: Remember kids: RAID is not backup.

Yes, you can keep working if a drive in the RAID array dies, but if the RAID controller fails (be it the mobo, a Drobo, or NAS chassis) it could trash the array or at least make it unavailable until you replace it.

Keep. Separate. Backups.

ALso remove the backups from the original location. A friends business burnt to the ground and all his records including his backup went up in flames. Not a day goes by that I do not carry a JumpDrive home with everything on it.

Greg Gebhardt: There is much cheaper and more dependable storage available.

Go to Amazon and search NAS. There are pages and pages of products.

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (85 comments in total)

Got to borrow a S5 a few days ago and compared it to my iPhone 5S and all I can say is Apple needs to STEP UP to get even close to the quality of the S5!

Guess I will remain jealous as I am not moving to an Android device.

Richard Weisgrau: Born to sell Amazon services. Nothing more. Nothing less. I'll keep my iPhone, iPad, and iMac. I do not need Amazon. It is a convenience not a necessity. I think the day is approaching when I take Amazon and Amazon's DPR out of my bookmarks.

We will see who OS is more intrusive when it comes to pushing the money making aspects. I am betting that Amazon will win.

springsnow: $650 no contract may work if you are Apple or Samsung. I think Amazon is confused. They saw the ratings and they thought they are now Apple. People associates Amazon with value, ie. cheaper than the others. This is not cheaper. Yeah, you can claim 32GB or parallax on steroid, but in the end, you are competing with the established brand that people equate more with that price point (Apple, Samsung).
Example was Moto X. Its main feature, the Moto maker, was exclusive to AT&T, and it was selling for $199 with contract, same price as SGS4 and HTC One at that point. Guess what happened. Yeah.
I think by the end of this year, AT&T will discount this to $99 with contract to clear out inventory.

No to worry as Amazon will be forced to drop the price very soon.

I am betting the "Amazon" part of the phone's software will get in the way at every chance and will pass on this hardware advertisement.

Greg Gebhardt: But will it run my Windows software? I tried their latest and greatest and it installed quickbooks just fine but when I tried to open my 250gb company file, it brought the Surface Pro 2 to it's knees.

I would very much like to replace my notebook with this but will it do what I need?

Sorry but it is YOU who have no idea what you are talking about. Not into the fanboy thing like others here. Point was their top of the line tablet would not run my software. I am betting the three will not either. Maybe the four or five!

It was the latest top of the line surface pro 2 and it sucked! I returned it after 24 hours. I am thinking the Surface 6 or 7 will be good enough to buy!

For storage it had 512GB but for RAM it did not have enough and that was why it slowed. It was not just me but the Windows Employees at the store that saw it balk until it froze. Several of the store employees said that they had seen simular slow downs before.

Gubblebum: Why isn't anyone talking about the built-in nd-filter? To me that's the reason I consider updating from rx100 II

99% of the users will never use the ND filter.

Sorry it was 250MB and not GB. AND this now much smaller company file did bring the Surface to it knees. The guy at the MS store said it was predictable as when it loaded the file up for use, it slowed to a stop and then error messages.

The surface is not ready yet and I suspect won't be untill the Surface 4 or 5. But you Fanboies like A/C Photo can keep dreaming! LOL!

retro76: Microsoft is dead, the future is google and apple. Trust me, I don't hate Microsoft, in fact I was quite a fan boy back in the day (but hell I also liked cassette tapes at one time too). If you haven't graduated to Apple/Google hardware/software by now your simply living in the past, and it may sound cocky, but that's the raw honest truth.

Google and CHromebook will never have a place at my house or business. Ever!

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2300 comments in total)

The block of aluminum is a great advertising feature but in the end it all comes do to the sensor, lens and focusing system. Not too impressed with the Vario or X1/X2 systems. The "T" lenses are S L O W and not too much you can do to get around that.

Only time will tell but do not expect to see this ina full frame model.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (451 comments in total)

Forget waiting on the DPR review. If you want it and it meets your needs buy it and you will not be sorry. Do not let the negative posts in the Canon Forum sway you as they are typical for haters who are either jealous or trolls.

The G1X MK2 is a VERY capable camera and a worthy one to replace the MK1 version if you are looking for a camera if this type.

Not going to pay that much for a 58mm prime lens. No one should unless they do alot of 58mm work! My 85 was worth it but a 58mm?

On Adobe expands Photoshop and Lightroom offer article (628 comments in total)

I have been with Adobe from the beginning but will not upgrade again. I want to own my software. Same with MS Office.

Adobe must be hurting trying to sell this new cloudy software or they would not be offering a discount.

Adobe is also guilty of letting scammers steal our CC information and I will not allow that to happen to me. Lets all stick together and we can get Adobe to change their mind!
