  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

SUPER STRONG signal. Router is installed in a cinder block concrete room and I was able to hold a usable connection at over 500 feet away.
very configurable.

I'm super happy with this router!!

Cons: none

Western Digital RE3 WD5002ABYS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: quiet

Cons: does not feature sleep mode.

Other Thoughts: For the last 8 months I used this drive as a external drive using E-SATA cable to my laptop and sometimes a USB to SATA adapter by Rosewill. Drive did great up till the point I decided to delete the two dynamic partitions on it and create two new basic partitions. Then I formatted it and transferred my 400GB of info back onto it. all seemed to go well, but then something went wrong and now I can't format it after creating new partitions. Cannot do anything with it. The blame is on me, and I don't think it was the drive that failed.

Pros: This thing works great! I have been able to get over 14 over the air digital channels including a couple HD channels! All these channels come in great without any jerky frames or sound. It is perfect as long as I am getting a signal with one or more bars on the signal strength indicator. I also tested it on my Comcast Basic Cable connection ( non-digital subscription ) and I was able to get 28 digital channels. Most of them are the local broadcast channels. However, there are a couple other non-over-the-air channels like the Weather channel that I get through the cable connection. There are about 6 of these 28 channels that are in HD. It also picked up 70 other cable channels that were locked. I assume this is some kind of encryption that Comcast has added to prevent me (us) from using their digital cable channels without having a digital cable subscription. So far using the included ArcSoft TotalMedia software works much better then Windows Media Center. Media Center would not

Cons: It would be nice if they included a steel base for the antenna and a USB extension cord to relocate the antenna farther from the computer. I strongly recommend using a USB extension cord, because the COAX cable will put a very heavy strain on the USB Digital tuner when connected directly to the USB port on your Laptop or PC.

Other Thoughts: All things considered. ( My room is in a basement and my house is on a hill with other hills around and lots of big trees etc. ) I was NOT able to get a good over the air signal at first. And I was not able to pick up half the channels that I now have. By chance I figured out that if you set the little magnetic antenna base onto something steel or iron (in my case a 2” x 3 “ steel soldering iron holder) I got perfect reception! It was amazing!
