I just got this
includes the WD 1tb Green drive) in yesterday. So far so good.
Plug in the dock
Put the drive in the dock
fdisk the disk
format the drive (around 20 seconds with jfs)
add it to my default storage group
move all of my stuff from my old disks to this one because im going
from 4x200 to 1x1tb to save power/$$
So far I've been impressed with the hardware. The newegg reviews are
mixed, with some folks saying that it seems flimsy and other negative
comments. I have no issues with the dock nor setting it up for use.
