This review is from: SAMSUNG MLT-D209L, 209L High Yield Toner Cartridge Black
Pros: easy installation.
Simply works without any knowledge.
Cons: Just wish toner prices were cheaper, but I won't try Roswel.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works.
Other Thoughts: I've installed dozens of internal drives over our family PC's over a couple decades. Like others say, it's OEM folks. Get your own cables, get your own screws, learn how to use device manager and off you go. Understand what you're buying. If you're complaining, go get a retail box at Walmart.
Agree with the comments about DOA - treat your drive with TLC, let it adjust to ambient air temperature before you plug it around. Never lost a drive before or during.
I've filled about 200GB of the drive already and it responds well as a second drive in a family machine, running XP.
I read all the comments here. 90% of the people either don't know what they are doing, or exaggerate their technical knowledge. Sorry for the dump, but it is what is.
This review is from: NETGEAR FVS338 Firewall
Pros: I have a graveyard of routers that died within a couple years. I have a growing home network, for home office work. I've got it cabled to Verizon FIOS ethernet and it is solid as a rock. I used the DHCP, but not the VPN. I have about a dozen attached devices, including shared printers, Wii, and FIOS TV bridge and other switches, and Wireless access points and several PCs and wireless devices. Built slowly over the years. I configured it and forgot about it. When we got fios TV, I refused to use the MI424WR Actiontek router, and actually put it behind this router. Happy as can be. We're getting 25mpbs down and 12 mbps up consistently. Doesn't hang, lets me VPN with my own office (via their software).
I'm not a game player, just an Joe average using the net a lot, along with a family of 5.
It just sits there and runs. I have not touched it except to use it to test things when verizon added tv to our service. Don't expect verizon to know how to cable it though.
Cons: I really don't need to use vpn right now, but it's there if I need to.
Other Thoughts: chances are, when new technologies arise I'll just buy new gear, like GB ether.READ FULL REVIEW
