Western Digital AV-GP WD30EURS 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I have to say.. I'm very impressed with this drive. the drive for 3tb is just as big as my 1tb hard drive which was cool. Once I got it working correctly it recognized right away and formatted to 2.72tb. I had to format to GPT format to get it to recognize correctly and then it noticed right away. the 64mb cache is nice as well. My 1tb is 64mb cache but it seems like this one is a bit faster for some reason. I transferred a 7gb movie it took about 20 minutes. Also did 1gb and it took about 40 seconds. I wasn't sure about how fast it would be. But it did more than I expected. I also transfered 250gb over to it and that also took about 2 hours and the transfer speeds were lowest around 10mb/sec not to bad. I've had drives transfer 1mb or less /sec

Cons: I had to format to GPT format to get it to recognize correctly with windows 7 64bit. It took me a few minutes but once I got it it was perfect. Obviously not enough to knock off an egg.

Other Thoughts: Really good drive and really worth the buy. I would purchase this drive anytime. And the space is more than enough being a graphic designer I need the space. I use this drive as a storage drive. Hooked up to a 3.0 sata and 3.0 port in a asus 990fx motherboard.

D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Unique design and the wireless speeds. It has alot of capabilities and for the price is amazing. The power cord is pretty long which is kind of nice. The package actually came with a ethernet cable which I thought was really neat because I have yet to see any of my routers have a ethernet cable with them. I like how it doesn't have as many blinking lights in the front or anything which is nice because I would rather see less blinking. The speeds were just about the same as every other router i've ever used infact I kind of noticed about 2mb upload difference with this router. The installation of the router however was flawless I hooked it up to my modem and then to my win 7 64bit and it instantly connected. The wireless was pretty fast setup once I figure out exactly how to turn it on. My win 8 laptop notices the wireless right away same with my phones in the house.

Cons: Port Forwards are limited. Mycloud is a little difficult to understand at first and does not have very much info. The cloud doesn't work with older ios phones.

Other Thoughts: I was really interested in the mycloud capabilities that this router has and I am still messing with alot of it however I think the mycloud is ok. I'm not super impressed with it but it has the capabilities to be impressive. I know most apps are for iPhone 4.3 ios however for something like this it would be nice if it worked on ios 4.2 or something for iPhone 3g. I have a 3g and 4g and 5g and I can't use it on the 3g unfortunately. I think the mycloud should have a little more information about it though on installation. Other than that I think this so far has been one of the best routers I have gotten. I have a couple netgear routers and an asus router. This router is up with my best asus router. I haven't ever had any problems with dlink routers so this is a good router and a good buy in my book well worth the money.

NETGEAR WNR1500-100NAS N300 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: It has a very nice design and shape to it. It isn't huge like some routers can be but it isn't the smallest either.. It's pereft to me haha. I like the idea of 2 antennas. I thought it would be a little worse than my $100 netgear router I currently have however that was not the case. The antenna's were extremely easy to screw in. The Ethernet ports are sturdy casing around them, they don't seem like they will break anytime soon.

The lights in the front are really solid as far as ample lighting and indication goes. They work really well. I figured I would run it for a couple weeks to see the differences in speeds based on the days/nights and weather. However I have had no drops in speeds or internet. Its very fast for what it is.

The Wireless is pretty nice it reaches throughout my house on to my patio and a little further.

The cord actually has a bit of distance to it! I've had alot of routers with short power cord distance.

Cons: The wireless took a bit of setting up whereas my other netgear router setup my wireless automatically. This wasn't a big deal it's just like setting anything up.

Other Thoughts: I didn't have any trouble running games such as BF3 and L4D2, Crysis 2 and alot of others. I also hooked up my laptop and my 2 desktops and ran games like above all at once and my pings remained pretty low depending on server anywhere from 15 - 60 ping which is good. I use cable internet so my downloads were fairly nice averaging 25/mbps and uploads around 4mbps which is no different than my $100 netgear router. The wireless is easy to setup and has a nice range throughout your property. Overall this is a great product for just about any home use and ethernet and wireless use. If you need more ports you can always hook up a switch and add Ethernet ports. I hooked up a 8 port switch and hooked up 4 computers to the switch and did not lose speeds or drops.
