WD EX4100 (WDBWZE0080KBK-NESN) My Cloud™ Expert Series 4-Bay Pre-configured 8 TB NAS with dual-core processor
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Easy install and Access with Quick Install sheet included.
- Scalable and easy to set up Raid, JBOD, or SCSI link depending on your needs and home or office set up.
- Easily upgradable by adding larger drives up to 24 Tb with 4x6 Tb Drives installing.
- Upgrade as slow and easily as you want 1 drive at a time with Raid 5, JBOD, or SCSI Protocol.
- Network Ready and I love the expandable USB ports for even more storage possibilities.
- This is Great for a small business that wants to keep data electronically for easy access or for homes Library and Document long term storage.
- Has a sleep mode that is ready when you are and save energy and keeps drives cool and ready for you when you need it.
- Redundant Power connections allow for great power back up reliability for UPS or Emergency power configurations or just a bad power brick going bad. Not one Hiccup with both power connections plugged in. It automatically switches.
- Dual Network inputs allows for data signals to work faster or for greater bandwidth.
- Rear cooling fan is nice.

Cons: - Can be a bit slower than is used to but the capacity and the environment compensates.
- Adding Drives can be difficult to do correctly if you are upgrading.
- A full manual should come with the system.
- Fan can be loud at start up but silent during regular operation.

Other Thoughts: With this device think of it as your own personal cloud. Back up pictures, High Priority Documents and every video that you own to be broadcast anywhere in the world with the right access key. I really love this device and its definitely worth the price as cloud monthly storage can add up to lots of money in the end. I would definitely recommend this but if you want a larger capacity it may be cost efficient to buy the larger Capacity models that are pre configured for less man hour and Tech knowledge needed for set up and upgrading configurations..

5 out of 5 eggs Luxury Router at a great price 03/09/2015

This review is from: Linksys AC1900 Dual Band SMART Wi-Fi Gigabit Router (EA6900)

Pros: -High Tech with easy configuration
everything you need without the need to be a IT specialist and more to discover as you learn more later.

-Dual Core processor really is a computer inside a router

-Great for people that have a great service provider with high speeds.

-The rate and actions of this router gives you amazing traffic control for managing family internet traffic.

-Lots of options but no need to get bogged down with geek.

-Adjustable beam technology lets the owner fine tune the signal for problematic areas inside or outside the dwelling.

-Dual Band is only limited by the device that is using it. It will go as fast as your device is made to operate.

-Parental Controls is great for internet baby sitting.

-Price is really good Luxury usually comes a lot more expensive than this.

-The downloadable app can allow you to control internet when you are away from home through your smart phone.

-Good internal Cooling solution so no overheating

-looks great anywhere you put it.

-Super fast 10/1000 Ethernet ports

-Easy printer sharing

-Great for having a media hub device to distribute music and videos throughout the router's domain via a USB 3.0 centralized hard drive unit or a large fast Memory Stick.

-There is more but the router is a great buy and discovering all the cool things about it is part of the fun of this device.

Cons: -Not much Geek Factor.. and internal tweaking

-Does not look like a F-117 Stealth fighter/fighter bomber.

Other Thoughts: This is the family man or woman's dream computer routing device. Like a nice Sport Utility Vehicle its easy to manage and has enough power to handle all terrain and is easy to drive.

If you want great speed and reliability and easy configuration this is the answer to your needs and it has grown some antenna now so range is extended. The range and options of this router is great for a person that wants amazing performance without having to be a master mechanic with a degree in geek.

OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-120G 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Heavy construction
-Durable INDILINX Barefoot 3 M10 SATA 6Gbps controller
-Toshiba or Micro memory chips. Good quality Taiwan built
-Sequential Read/Write Speed is 439.10 mbs /373.74 mbs
-Great choice for Raid 0 or raid 5 storage with the price.

Cons: -The warranty is not as long as most.
-I was not really impressed with the look of the SSD Blue stripes.
-bare drive with no hardware or mount

Other Thoughts: For a great raid system quality and cost is key. most of the larger sizes over 256 uses two chips working in tandem @ 800 MHz DDr3 speed so that is really hot. This smaller ones are slower for this reason. But OCZ quality has been on the mark all my building career. I would not hesitate to use multiple drives for a Raid combo for EXTREME speed at a not so extreme price.
