Pros: I have 4 of these, 2 of which I bought from NewEgg and they have performed flawlessly. I’m running them in an Asus P5B-E with an Intel 6700 running at 2.6 Ghz so I’m not really pushing the OC capabilities just yet.
Cons: No real cons other then the fact that it’s a little more pricy then other Ram but that’s acceptable given its performance.
Other Thoughts: I wish I had waited to make this purchase a little longer so I could get it at the price it’s going for now. I paid over $150 a stick and now it’s virtually free.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large drive @ a reasonable price that includes a 5 Year Warranty.
Cons: You’re going to need the warranty. I ordered two of these drives just over a month ago. I installed one in a DIY DVR I built (Sage Box) and it was running solid for most of that time. Then it started clicking, which as most of us know hard drives should not do unless they are dying. I figured that it may be a fluke and I’d just replace it with the 2nd drive and RMA it. I break open the 2nd drive and hook it up so I can copy over my files and what do I hear upon post? Knock knock knock… The 2nd drive was DOA. Needless to say I’m not recommending this drive to anyone.
Other Thoughts: I used to recommend IBM drives and slam Maxtor but I’ve seen enough of each perform above or below expectations that I don’t favor any one manufacturer any more. Seagate and WD are two major players and you can find good pricing on them due to the high volume of drives out there. These days I tend to buy Seagate drives because of the extended warranty which is two years longer then WD provides. Warranties are supposed to provide peace of mind and a degree of confidence when you’re making the decision on which drive to purchase. This confidence is rapidly undermined when you have to actually use the warranty. With the failure of these two drives I will have RMA’d 3 Seagate drives in the last 30 days. I’m probably going to start leaning toward WD drives if this keeps up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DWL-2100AP High Speed Wireless 108Mbps Access Point
Pros: Easy Setup, Solid support for wireless security protocols including WP2 & 802.1x w/Radius. Web based GUI is a piece of cake to navigate and options are all presented in a straightforward manner. Easy to connect to external antenna including non-Dlink products. Nice and small WAP which is easy to mount/conceal which is nice when your wife wants it to be “out of the way” but also expects a strong signal 100% of the time.
Cons: Logging to syslog server only, no email options. Range is pretty good but could be improved in my book. This was one of the more expensive low end WAPs I looked at but given the reliability associated with D-Link I felt it was worth the extra $. Limited documentation on the telnet interface commands.
Other Thoughts: I am a big fan of D-Link and I’ve been buying their stuff since I got turned off on Netg$#@ (tech support was terrible). I would recommend this product to anyone looking to setup a new wireless network and wants a good product with an easy interface or wants to extend their wireless network with a bridge/repeater. I’d like to see a POE version of this in the same price range.READ FULL REVIEW
