    I would like to hear something on these low cost HDD vs. failures when used in a WHS. Ex: I bought two new WD Scorpio 120GB drives for my ThinkPad business notebook. I use two because I clone one to the other using Casper every week in case C: fails, I can be back up in ten minutes. Well, nine months after purchase, C: drive started making bad bearing noises and I replaced it under warranty. And I was back up in ten minutes after a drive swap. I heard Steve Gibson grc.com say that he was building a new PC and he bought four Hitachi 1TB server grade HDD's. I understand HP uses server class 2.5 inch HDD's in their rack mount business servers. Question: should we be buying server class HDD's for use in our WHS or not? Makes sense to me but what do they cost and how do you find them?

    • Let's start small with the definition. If you know about podcasts already you can skip ahead.  
      What is a podcast?  There is no set definition but in general a podcast is a voice recording on a subject that you can usually listen to however and whenever you want.  Let's break these down a little bit and that will also help define the term for you.

    • Here is something that wasn't planned but came to me while I was at Unveiled.  The Unveiled event was a little lackluster so I had a little fun with the DJI Osmo Pocket.  Take a look.

    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!

      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?
