NETGEAR WNR2020v2 Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Router with External Antennas
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works great for small house/ low speeds 10/04/2015

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR2020v2 Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Router with External Antennas

Pros: -Simple to use web browser GUI setting
-No disconnects or freezes
-Able to manually select wifi channel
-Reached internet speeds that I paid for (30/6Mbps) through wifi
-Parental Settings can block specified websites
-Automatic firmware update
-Remote configuration

Cons: -Single Band 2.4Ghz b/g/n is outdated technology
-For small house
-It may not be able to push 50+Mbps wifi internet speeds
-100Mbps lan ports

Other Thoughts: I’m quite impressed with the simplicity and ease of setting up this router. It uses a webpage to access the router settings. It didn’t initially detect the modem ip at first but there is an option in the settings to automatically detect the modem when first initializing the modem. After detecting the modem and getting wifi to work changing the settings are a breeze thanks to the easy to navigate menu. Since this is used in an apartment with about 20 other wifi signals detected I scanned for the wifi channel that is used and selected the channel that is least used to avoid interference. I manually changed the channel in the router setting. I have 30/6Mbps internet and this achieved 28.44/5.79Mbps from about 15 feet in the bedroom. So it is not bad at all for wifi internet. My concern with a low end router is reliability and I’m glad to say that this has not disconnected or froze with 6 wifi devices connected to it. Another feature I like is the automatic firmware update settings. I did upgrade to the latest firmware and all I had to do is click the “check for new version” and it will automatically check and update the router. Other features include parental settings to block website and remote access to configure through an ip address. Overall, for the price and performance I give this a recommendation if you’re in a small house/ apartment and your internet speed is less than <50Mbps download.

Klevv Cras 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Memory Model KM4C4GX4A-3000-16-18-18-36-0
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Ram modules and heat spreaders have a Solid industrial build quality
-led light strip on top of modules
-DDR4 3000mhz @ 16-18-18-36-2T worked as advertised using XMP Profiles
-Packaging is nice with a carbon fiber faux texture
-XMP profiles for max performance
-No issues with Windows 7 or freezing/BSODS

-only 16GB
-Heat spreaders may cause clearance issues for larger CPU heatsinks

Other Thoughts: DDR4 is here and along with it comes a hefty price tag. For the price, costing much more than every other component- including an i7 CPU- it doesn't make much sense to upgrade from DDR3 which cost about $400 less. But if you have the cash and are a benchmarker then by all means go for it. But for the average consumer DDR4 is just way too expensive to even be considered.

OCZ Vector 180 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Packaging is pretty nice except the specifications for the 120GB is not listed on the back.
-Includes 3.5" Desktop SSD Adaptor
-Includes Acronis True Image HD Product Key
-Trim Support
-No need to update firmware
-5yr. Warranty
-Metal Construction

Cons: -Power usage is 0.85W idle and 3.7W active compared to Samsung 850 Evo 120GB which is .50W idle and 2.1W active- does not make this ideal for Laptops if you want MAX battery life.
-Actual Sequential Read and write are lower than advertised.

Other Thoughts: OCZ while great for memory hasn't quite made their name in the SSD technology. Suffered by poor SSD products in the past, their reputation has been tarnished in recent years. Although this product works great, it is not something I would spend extra money on and considering the Samsung 850 EVO 120GB cost $67 - this is insanely priced at $90 for 120GB. The Samsung 850EVO beats it in just about every performance category.

Installation was a breeze on a Mac Mini 2012. Using Black Magic Speed Test I get about ~460MB/s Read and ~430MB/s Write. I haven't had any issues with the mac going to sleep and trim is supported and works great using the Trim Enabler App.

Overall, this product works great but is expensive and doesn't quite offer any advantages over its competitors.
