Hardware product discusssions not 45Drives

I am interested in opinions about the appropriateness of discussing other company (not Homelab) products here in the forums.

I know we’ve discussed motherboards and other parts that 45Drives sells that can be bought various places, but I am curious about discussing company “X” and their product “Y”. (especially since these products would be potential competitors). There are many new products in the homelab space coming to market

Are these forums “open”? I don’t see any rules specifically against it, but these forums are hosted by 45Drives. I like this company and I don’t want to disrespect what they are trying to do.

On the other hand, maybe the feedback from other products available or coming to market soon would be valuable to 45Drives?

I would be in interested in anything @Hutch-45Drives or @Vikram-45Drives had to say on this subject.

Hi @daemon1001,

I appreciate your concern and support. I am happy to share my thoughts on this,

Are these forums open?

Yes! you are free to discuss whatever you wish as long as you stay within the form rules. Be civil to each other and share ideas. If you have other products from other companies, find a good deal, or whatever you want to share - we love to see your insight as well as contribute to the health of the forum.
