This review is from: ARRIS SurfBoard SB6121 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Gets the full speed of the whopping 25 mbps I have
No NAT issues (why would there be...?)
Cons: If I change routers or bypass the router, it need a reboot. Also needs rebooting if the power goes out. It's a minor hassle of you're having router problems and are troubleshooting.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Gigabit works...
Cons: Wireless networking does not work in N mode (150 mbps) or g mode (54mbps), instead, you must turn off n mode, and then you get b speeds (11mbps). Curiously, you can get two devices connected both downloading at this speed. Also curiously, you can get b speeds with local traffic (streaming from one computer to another).
I've researched this and TONS of people have this problem.
Research has also revealed this router still has the same problem when DD-WRT installed, and that this router is also prone to bricking when you install DD-WRT.
I requested a replacement, and the replacement has all the same problems as the first one did, and now I'm outside my 45 day refund, so I will just keep RMAing this till either newegg offers me a refund, or I get one that randomly works.
Other Thoughts: Very upset with Netgear on this one. Their 54GL has worked great for years.
My old Buffalo gets the full b speeds, testing out at over 25mbps, which exceeds my advertised speeds.
This review is from: WD 1TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN
Pros: I've had it for almost a year. It's been through a lot. Used for data, reformatted for Xbox 360, soft-formatted back to NTFS and it still has great speeds (90 MB/s). Super quiet
Cons: When I plugged it into my Xbox (powered off) it would spin up for some odd reason. It shuts down once the device has been power cycled, though. I am assuming that the Xbox must supply USB power for the controllers when it is off.READ FULL REVIEW
