This review is from: Athena Power CABLE-SL13S7M420 20" 20" Slimline SATA to SATA with Molex Power Cable
Pros: This cable worked absolutely perfect and is very small in size. I was worried with a different brand cable that it would take up too much room and not work for my Laptop DVD burner that I had recently installed in a server.
Couldn't ask for more.
Cons: 4 pin molex? I had to use a 4 pin molex to newer sata power cable since the power supply I was using didn't have one.
Other Thoughts: Not one single place in my town had these cables. Even the computer shops around did not stock these. Fun to find.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap. Still waiting on rebate, so.. maybe not so cheap if I dont get it. Clean looking enclosure. Gig-ethernet connections. Can turn on/off the blinky flashy lights. :)
Cons: I seem to be limited to a max of two devices for full speed. Speed on those are great ~30mbit/sec speedtest.net results up to 50 or so feet away (I have this router on a 50 Mbit cable internet connection.) When I add a third device, be a tablet, laptop, or cell phone the speed drops to ~1Mbit/sec. Even if those other devices are not doing anything I cannot get any bandwidth on the 3rd device.
Mind you that I am a foot away from the router when testing. It almost acts like QOS/media priority or something is turned on when the other devices connect.
This router would work well in an appartment or a smaller home. Set this up in the center of a 100' long home and it barely covers the ends.
Other Thoughts: Haven't had much time to research into this router on why it is not giving me faster speeds on the other 2 devices that are connected to this router.
Not for my personal use, someone else's network I set up. I'm sure if it was mine this would drive me crazy.
The menu to me feels limited. I miss the older router (WRT's) config pages. For a long time I had them memorized by heart and could tell anyone over the phone where to go to change a setting.
Pros: Kingston HyperX Ram from my experience has been flawless. Never had one module go bad that I have installed, going back to installs that used DDR1. (to this day I still have stacks of old ones that I saved from scrapped boards that still work) I have used this ram on mostly AMD based MSi, ASUS and Gigabyte motherboards.
Performance is good. WEI windows 7 scores range from 7.4 to 7.7 depending on the board.
Cons: Not the cheapest ram, not the most expensive though. But, buying ram and not having to worry about it being compatible or stability issues is one less headache. Not worthy to take an egg off though.
Other Thoughts: These modules now comes with case stickers. Bonus.READ FULL REVIEW
