D-Link 5-Port EasySmart Gigabit Ethernet Switch - Lifetime Warranty (DGS-1100-05)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This switch worked right out of the box. I honestly didn't even notice that it had its own IP address on its own subnet until I read the short manual. Once I changed my laptop's IP to the same subnet, all was well. It was very easy to login to and change settings. I haven't put this switch through the ringer yet, but I have been streaming FIOS channels through my xbox without any hiccups. I used to use powerline technology to provide internet to my xbox and I would often have dropouts and buffering issues. Now that I was able to wire my house and install this switch, I've had nothing but beautiful, sweet network uptime. I also have a Ubiquiti AP hooked up to this switch and all of my wifi devices are loving it. I haven't been able to fully abuse this switch yet, or use all of its settings. But I'm feeling quite confident that my purchase will make my happy for long time.

Cons: My only con is - 10.90.90.90? really? Why such a crazy IP address? I guess they really wanted to make sure it didn't interfere with anyone's original network setup. Oh well - it was super easy to correct to my liking.

Other Thoughts: So far so good. I will provide more updates if anything goes wrong or goes even better!

Foxconn Brazos AT-5570 AMD A45 (Hudson D1) 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM AMD Radeon HD 7290 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: For the last 4-5 years, I've had a small little server running in my house. I've used it for small website servers, FTP servers, file sharing server, etc. It has been a great addition to my house. I originally had a Sheevaplug (it's a small linux plug computer) but the USB died on it after 4 years. It was awesome... it did everything I needed. Once it died, I immediately went searching for my new home server. Newegg had the AT-5570 at the right price and I figured I would give it a try. I love it. I found an old mechanical laptop HD that I had lying around and bought some 4GB DDR3 1066 RAM. I installed Windows 7 and have not had any issues with heat or power. I run my little server headless so I cannot comment on this little guy's ability for video playback. It has been able to tackle everything I have thrown at it thus far. I measured the power intake with a kill-o-watt meter and it averaged 15 watts. It could probably be lower, but I am using a mechanical HD and I have a USB HD attached. I'm sure the power intake could be lowered if you used an SSD and no USB HD.

Cons: Initially, I had issues installing Windows XP. I figured a Windows XP installation would be a smaller footprint and less of a resource hog. But WinXP and SATA have issues from time to time. I just skipped the whole XP installation and stuck to Windows 7. Nothing to sweat...

Other Thoughts: There is a small USB flash drive that comes with the box. This has all of the drivers you need to get this computer up and running. Additionally, you can download all of the drivers from the Foxconn website and sneakernet the drivers.
