CineRAID CR-H458 Hardware RAID 0, 1, 10, 3 and RAID 5, support 4 x 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it works it's fine

Cons: Some drive failure modes will cause the entire array to hang, which is kind of the opposite of what should happen. Removing the bad drive allows the array to continue to work, though it is degraded.

Sigh.

TP-LINK CPE510 5GHz 300Mbps 15KM+ Long Range High Power Outdoor CPE/Access Point, 802.11n/a,dual-polarized 13dBi directional antenna, Passive POE
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to install, wizard for simple setup, low cost. PoE passthrough for running two devices from one power supply with a single CAT5 feed.

Cons: Not 802.3af PoE, they saved a few dollars by cheaping out on 24V passive PoE. But then PoE passthrough, so not all bad. Our infrastructure is mostly 802.3f, so extra power supplies and loss of remote control for power-cycling is less than ideal.

Other Thoughts: We're starting to deploy these on some 50-ish locations on an island in the Caribbean to replace some aging and expensive PMP gear, it's an order of magnitude less expensive than the "professional" gear we were looking at, and seems to work even better than expected. Won't know for 6 months or so how it does in multiple PMP mode (4-5 APs at a single location and 50-ish clients), but we're about to order another dozen or two for the next stage, so we're pretty happy. Cost really matters when you are buying these things by the dozen, and we've been pretty impressed!

Dell U2415 Black 24.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice monitor, good price. While the Dell monitors don't look like they have that much better resolution than the cheap monitors from other vendors (1920x1200 versus 1920x1080), it's the difference between a monitor I want to use all day and a monitor I cough bought cuz it was cheap and "HD". 5-port USB3 hub is a nice touch!

Cons: Who makes a $300 monitor without a DVI interface? Sure, the included DisplayPort to MiniDisplayPort cable was a nice gesture (and made my Mac functional), but that's kinda esoteric compared to the rest of the industry standards they could have included.

Other Thoughts: So there was a delay of a few more days between getting the monitor and making full use of it, because it doesn't have a DVI interface, so I had to order extra cables. High-end Dell monitors have come with lots of interfaces and VGA and DVI cables for so long it never even occurred to me to check. I'd certainly buy it again, but check the interfaces and my requirements more carefully.
