This review is from: UbiQuiTi NanoStation LOCOM5 N150 Indoor/Outdoor AirMAX CPE
Pros: Price, Ease of Installation, Performance, Many Configuration Videos are available. LEDs on the back of the unit show status at a glance and also can be used for alignment.
Cons: Does NOT use Standard POE Connection without additional adapter.
Only Pole Mount is included.
Only 100Mb connection but says the wireless link is up to 300mbps between them.
Other Thoughts: I bought a Pair of These to bridge my network between two buildings. To say that I am very impressed with them is an understatement!
These units are relatively small, light weight and have an impressive software installed in them. Setting them up was a snap using their Alignment Option that uses a Beep that gets higher pitched as you are getting the best location signal.
Beware that these are POE but only with the included 24V Adapter, does not work with Standard POE Switches without an additional adapter which was a bit of an issue for us.
They are designed to be mounted on a pole, the mount can not be removed but additional mounts can be purchased. I ended up getting the Window / Wall Mounts which worked but not quite as expected.
Since the day they have been installed they have been working perfectly transferring security camera video without a single hiccup. I highly recommend these.
This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive
Pros: I've been a fan of Seagate Drives for a long time, I've started out with their 320GB Drives and over the years went to the 750's then 1.5TB and the 3TB before going to the 4TB for my latest NAS. These drives are relatively inexpensive (when on sale) and are very fast.
Cons: I am not sure about their reliability, I bought 3 drives to start and one of them just failed after only about 9 Month (about 6400 Hours). What makes me a little more concerned is that when I tried to RMA The drive I got an e-mail saying there was going to be a delay as they don't have any in stock. Um What?
So be mindful of this since a lot of people are saying that these drives don't seem to last long. I am using a RAID 6 so hopefully I will never have 3 drives fail before I can get at least one of them replaced.
I am also very disappointed that Seagate lowered the warranty time from 5 years which was their standard for so many years to the 3 years it is now.
Other Thoughts: What else can you say, maybe I should have went with the WD Red Drives? Once I switch to the 8TB Drives I think that will be the direction I go as it seems like something has happened to the Seagate QC.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to install
Read every disc I put in it.
Great Support from LG
Cons: Died after a few months of moderate use, doesn't seem to read at consistent speeds.
Other Thoughts: Even though this Drive died after a few months I was very impressed with LG's support, I opened up a case online, they e-mailed me a UPS Label and in about a week I got a replacement.READ FULL REVIEW
