EDIMAX ES-5800G V2 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch

5 out of 5 eggs Can't edit my review? 02/21/2014

This review is from: EDIMAX ES-5800G V2 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch

Pros: So I wrote a review above and said "It's really the only 8 port Gigabit switch I know of that's being made right now.", when I meant to say "It's really the only *USB POWERED* 8 port Gigabit switch I know of that's being made right now.". I couldn't edit my review, so I'm just writing another one? Newegg, please fix this!

Cons: No cons

5 out of 5 eggs USB powerable! 02/16/2014

This review is from: EDIMAX ES-5800G V2 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch

Pros: I bought two of the 100-base and one of these gigabits. It looks and operates exactly like the others but this is gigabit. It's really the only 8 port Gigabit switch I know of that's being made right now. It takes half an amp or more, depending on how many devices plugged in (use a blue USB power tester), so just make sure you're powering it well enough. A USB power tester will go a long way. I also liked the look of this, because I just wanted an extra switch for my desktop. Why others make desktop switches this size with all the lights on the cable side, like a rack mount unit, is beyond me.

Cons: Not made in the USA.

Other Thoughts: I say, if you just need an unmanaged 8 port gigabit switch, why not go cheap and low power?

QNAP TS-669L-US Diskless System High-performance 6-bay NAS Server for SMBs

4 out of 5 eggs Almost there with Synology 01/07/2014

This review is from: QNAP TS-669L-US Diskless System High-performance 6-bay NAS Server for SMBs

Pros: Seems to be rock solid so far. Good OS, very close to Synology. Almost as if they source a basic browser OS and customize it for their needs. Of course both are different, and I do own a Synology too. What I love about these is they use a windowed OS right inside your desktop browser. It's quite amazing. You can do almost anything in it you expect from a normal windowed OS. Resizing, opening, closing windows. Shell/Command Prompt, etc. The fit and finish on this is up there with the higher end metal Synology as far as I can tell by pictures, since I just own a plastic Synology.

Cons: Expensive, though I got mine for about $630. That's about worth it, although I could put a system together for about that with 8 bays instead of 6, and with all standard components, so I can replace them when the MB dies or if I want to upgrade it. But I'd still have to build it. So until I do so, this is it.

Other Thoughts: I bought the 6 bay because I wanted to make a RAID 5 array. You always lose a drive's worth of space in such a system and what's common is the 5 bay. Well, mine is one more bay than that. So after formatting in RAID 5, I have around 18.6TB. I say if you like building systems, get the U-NAS enclosure and build your own. You could run Windows server, Linux, or even U-NAS's own windowed NAS OS. There may be other NAS OS's. All this may take time, but you'll have a better NAS overall. And I hope someone appreciates this review, because it took some time as well. :)
