Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD30EFRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The ones that work are cooler in the NAS (iomega ix2-200) than the old drives were. Pretty quiet also.

Cons: From other posts, they seem to have a high DOA rate. I'm wondering how long they'll last in service. :(

NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: None that I can see

Cons: Doesn't work with MacOS X?

Other Thoughts: Because Netgear commented on my last review (just a couple days ago), I went and called their support line for help. For the Netgear people who commented on my last review, my ticket # was 23318415.

After some wrangling, I was able to update the firmware, and it now seems to work with my iPad (but not the SONOS app), and my MacBookPro still refuses to work with the thing. It's not even getting an IP address (DHCP not working for the Mac). I have never had a problem connecting to any wifi network with my mac before (I've had it 2 years).

The best part here was that after they helped me get the FW upgraded, they told me I had to buy a $200 support contract to get more support for my $50 wifi extender!!! Really? It's never worked, and they won't help me getting it working? Their opinion was that since it works with the iPad, that there must be something wrong with my Mac - well, my Mac works great everywhere else. There's something clearly wrong about the Netgear extender.

I've had other Netgear products before, and have been generally satisfied, but not so with this one! I'll be avoiding Netgear in the future.

NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I never got it working correctly - I'm going to try updating FW, though. It worked sometimes, though.

Cons: Creates a new SSID, and is not compatible with some devices, such as my SONOS system (which is why I bought it). :(. SONOS requires that you're on the same network, and since this is not a repeater/bridge (does not use same SSID), the SONOS does not work with it.

Other Thoughts: Thinking of trying another brand/device
