NETGEAR R6300 Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router IEEE 802.11ac/a/b/g/n
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Netgear familiarity
built-in range extender function
price (as refurb unit)

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a very old Netgear router that died, a WNR2000 that I used as a range extender, my base router was a WNDR3400. This new R6300 is now my base router, with the WNDR3400 being the extender. Works flawlessly. The only change I had to make was that the new router needs open credentials for range extender. So I had to change from a password protected WIFI, to using MAC address filtering, no problem.

WD Red 2TB NAS Desktop Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD20EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: These drives have been great so far, I have five of them running 24/7 in two HP n54L micro-servers. I had six, but dropped one of them on the floor, didn't work after that!! These drives are nearly silent, and run smooth. I received one today, it came very snail mail, transferred from Fed-Ex to USPS, and through the -20 deg F weather here in Wisconsin. I put it by the heat register and warmed it up, it works fine. Not sure about all the claims of DOA on these drives, so far mine are working well. Runs much smoother than S**gate brand.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I would like to be able to try these against some of the other "NAS" drives on the market, but for my budget and needs, these fit the bill. I am running these with WHS 2011 and using StableBit DrivePool and Scanner for monitoring. Great setup, not free like a *Nix platform may be, but much shorter learning curve for me.

Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 64-bit - OEM

5 out of 5 eggs Great little server OS 09/26/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 64-bit - OEM

Pros: Very nice little server OS, somewhat dated in appearance and functions, but for the price, is the best thing on the market. I am using this with an HP n54L, the combination is very nice. Also purchased StableBit DrivePool, and Scanner, which integrate into WHS 2011 dashboard for data and drive management. Runnig a real Windows OS has so much more functionality than most traditional NAS's, plus you can use it to run other Windows apps, such as a DDNS update client, among other things. You won't be sorry with this, I only hope that MS will release an updated WHS version that is cost effective, not ~$450 like Server 2012 Essentials.

Cons: N/A
