Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 MKNSSDEC240GB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Solid Drive, great price good speed 03/21/2015

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 MKNSSDEC240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: So I was able to pop in the drive and clone over my OS ( Linux Mint 17.1) using clonezilla, so no problems there. Speed is great overall this drives seems very solid with trim support, instantly recognized, no complaints. It replaced a 120 GB OCZ Vertex 4. I will recommend this for anyone looking for a value drive or to put this is in an older system.

Cons: Didn't come with screws, cables, bracket or other brik-a-brak. Had to scrounge for some extra SATA cables to connect all my drives. No Major gripes, you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Time will tell on reliability. But seriously I still have platter drives and do not think I will every wear these SSDs out. I install games on these as well as applications. Mushkin has always been a reliable brand for Memory in the past.

BUFFALO AirStation Extreme AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router - WZR-1750DHP
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good Solid router with decent speed, no complaints 07/26/2014

This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation Extreme AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router - WZR-1750DHP

Pros: This router was chosen after carefully reviewing what was available from listed products and performs admirably in accordance with expectations. The setup was quick and easy and all the settings took after a quick firmware upgrade. This integrated into my semi complex (Mulitple APs/ DHCP servers and firewall) home network. I like the NAS capability and the network printer sharing. I have not been able to test these features out so I cannot attest to thier effectiveness. NAT is not being used as well as this duty is performed by my firewall. Overall this servers as a wired / wireless media bridge with AP for all my N 5 Ghz devices with AC capability. After using trendnet and netgear products I appreciate the responsiveness of this router when taking settings and applying immediately. I have no regrets upon purchasing this product especially if gotten on sale. I also am doing Minor Qos with gaming traffic and that performs well to make a noticable difference to my users as well. The WPS setup was extremely easy to connect a linksys media bridge.

Cons: Performance may not be enough for some large networks or if special protocols are used. The instruction leaves a bit to be desired as the settings are scattered throughout but they all do work as far as I can tell. This does get quite warm during normal operation.

Other Thoughts: I work in a network operations center so I have an idea about what works and what does not. This piece of hardware has the functionality I need so it "gets the job done". Make sure the firmware is up to date and you have reviewed the documentation before setting this up. Doesn't hurt to understand networking concepts before proceeding either. Overall I am pleased with this product and would recommend this to a small/ medium home network. As far as I can tell, it has three main modes: Router/AP/ repeater modes. The caveot is I am using this as a simple AP and not doing the main DHCP or routing functions. I feel that the product works and performs the functions I need it to with a minimum of fuss. I have not tested AC speeds either but plan to.

TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I am a networking professional this is a solid NIC card that links up at 1 Gig FULL duplex. (Provided you have the correct cabling type.) I have used this so far with 2 OS and not had to install drivers to get to work, was simple as plug and play. For the record I used Win 7 / 64-bit and Linux Mint 15. No updating required and give the option to hardset to 1 gig full duplex.

Cons: It doesn't cost less? I dunno it doesn't do more for this price what are you expecting? Is this supposed to make me sandwiches? It takes seconds longer to grab IPs and recognize during windows boot up. This may be the fault of an OS setting.

Other Thoughts: What you want this to include windows 98 drivers for current hardware? Get real, lol.
