t10 tamper proof torx bit...
A set of 7 TORX bits is only $13.00 on Amazon...I wonder if they'll include a #10 with the cable...???
A set of bits at Sears is $14.99 for 5 sizes, including T10.
A T10 Screwdriver is $2.99 at Sears.
Mine is a standard T10 Torx, not Security Torx.
Maybe they were all assembled with different parts? :lol:
I have a full set of Torx and Security Torx bits from like T4 - T16, and a universal driver for just such an occasions . . .
(I like to take stuff apart . . . )
I just knew someone would make me go look more closely.... :lol:
I wouldn't be surprised. Mine was the security Torx (and there was a tamper seal).
So I'm sure you didn't tamper.
Several sets.. (auto mechanic)
Hmmm, I don't have the security Torx bits, just a standard set. But it looks like they just used the standard Torx on mine. I guess I'll find out when I actually try to open it up.
I just got clarrification....
It will be the INTERNAL SATA cable, not the eSATA
Ok, that makes more sense.
I bought a set off ebay a couple of years ago in case I ever wanted to be able to take apart partitions in public restrooms.:lol:
Mine definitely has the security torx head. I have the regular torx but not the security bit. Guess I will wait and see if they send the bit with the cable.
hah, sorry about that. Better to check now than find out you don't have the right tools when the time comes.
Former auto mechanic here, still have most all of the tools. Not much I can't take apart. :lol:
Very interesting. I guess it isn't too bad since the units are working. I do wonder what it will do for dropouts, stability, and such.
I guess we'll see Tues/Wed, or for Tom the week after. ;-)
My guess is this has no impact at all to the HR21 unit performance - it is related only to the fact that the eSata port has not worked and does not currently work.
Looks like they'll have a big sales rush on TORX T10 bits this weekend... :lol:
Having not opened mine up yet, but now I'm curious, how would the Internal SATA cable, which Earl stated it was, going from the motherboard to the Hard Drive affect eSATA?
Or is it, what I initially thought, the cable from the motherboard to the eSATA port on the inside of the unit?
You don't have one on your keychain? No geeck rating for you! :lol:
I believe you hit a home run on this description.
