While I was in Vietnam over the weekends, my brother offered to help me get the Western Digital Elements Desktop 1TB harddrive from Comex 2010 at Bizgram stall. I am going to use the HDD for my MacBook Pro Time Machine backup.
Western Digital Elements
When I posted my pictures of Iomega’s 1st Blogging Event which happened yesterday, many thought that Iomega is dead after their Zip Drive failed to penetrate the market because of the widespread of USB flash drives. But in fact they have been bought over by EMC which is a Fortune 500 company and specializes in data storage for US$213 million.
But yeah, now they are back. I kinda like Iomega products, I got their 100MB, 250MB, and 750MB Zip Drives and I got a few old computers that are using their CD Writer and it is still working today. BTW, TDK DVD Writer sucks, mine was spoilt before even reaching 2 years.
D-Link replied me after a week and a follow-up email from me. The normal repair price is US$61 (S$86) and after the repair is done, I will get an additional 3 months warranty.
However, out of good will, they are willing to give me 30% discount off the repair charges which is now US$42 (S$59) and an additional 3 months warranty, so that makes it 6 months warranty in total. They accept cash only and for some reason they do not quote in S$. Weird.
I purchased my D-Link DNS-323 on the 1st September 2008 during Comex 2008.
3 days ago, my DNS-323 decided to give up on me, just after 1 year and 3 months! The warranty for the DNS-323 is only 1 year so my warranty had just ended! Argh!
My D-Link DNS-323 decided to give up to me 2 days ago and I have to find a temporary storage to transfer the data from my DNS-323. Unfortunately, I do not have enough space on my computer to store the data and my old external HDD has only 300GB and it is running on IDE. So I decided to get a new external storage as a temporary solution before I get a new NAS or if D-Link is reading this post would be so kind to RMA my DNS-323 (the warranty is over by 3 months).
More on the death of my DNS-323 in the upcoming blog post.
Comex 2008 was held in Suntec City Convention Center from the 28th August 2008 to the 31st August 2008. I hooted the following:
