ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit WEP, 128-bit WEP, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPS support
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Can be picky about PCI-e slot

Other Thoughts: I've used this part in several applications. It's a decent implementation of a very cheap wireless chipset. I tend to download Realtek's wireless drivers rather than use the ones included on the installation CD.

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 5 year limited warranty
Includes 2.5" to 3.5" adapter
The drive shipped with firmware 1.5

Cons: It's too thick to fit in some laptops that make use of 2.5" hdds.
Power consumption could be better.

Other Thoughts: I'm no fan of OCZ, but I bought this drive on a lark when the Samsung 830 series 128GB SSDs were unavailable. So far the OCZ drive has performed as advertised with no issues.

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 ST2000DL004 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good performance for a green drive, reliable, lowish temps. Ideal for applications that demand capacity over random read/write performance.

Cons: No longer manufactured by Samsung.

Other Thoughts: I've used this drive primarily in low-demand arrays for BDRs, network backup systems and my main home NAS. In these pampered conditions--excellent cooling, large single-client file transfers, extended idle times--they've been fast, available and reliable with a failure rate of about 5% in the first year. Failures have been graceful with all but one reported by SMART before data loss occurred.

My experience has been mainly with the Korean-manufactured HD204UI flashed with the 1AQ10003 firmware intended for the Japanese market. As a side note, Seagate's RMA process has been painless--replacement drives have all been rebranded Korean-made HD204UIs.
