Blue LED

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Dear Netgear, your ReadyNAS line is impressive and all, especially when its paired with 4 3TB Hitachi drives, but please stop it with the blinding blue LEDs. This photo doesn’t do it justice, but this thing is like a policeman’s maglight in your face. I don’t need this every time I walk into the server room.  Nor should I be applying electrical tape onto my $2500 NAS just to block it. I’d probably lose less rods and cones just staring into the sun every few minutes than walking into my server room once a day. Who let the “pimp my x out” crowd design enterprise equipment anyway?
