Thermalright TRUE Black 120Rev.C CPU Cooler
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Beautiful picture, great price; refurbish disappointment 12/01/2012

This review is from: Thermalright TRUE Black 120Rev.C CPU Cooler

Pros: Beautiful Sony picture, great technology. 1080p, sound is surprisingly good, USB support, firmware upgradeable; all in all a really pretty picture. No dead pixels, fairly consistent black. Only notice slight lightening at corners.

Cons: Gloss frame is an absolute dust and lint magnet; I've never seen anything like it.

Limited inputs, but that's to be expected for a mid level panel.

Refurbished was a disappointment: the back came scratched up in four places, the stand was missing rubber feet, and the double box that it came in was seriously not enough protection; it was so beat up and lightweight that I was surprised the tv worked.

Other Thoughts: While the refurb price was great, will probably go new in the future when it comes to tv's.

ICY DOCK MB974SP-B Tray-less 4 in 3 SATA I/II/III Hot-Swap Backplane RAID Cage Module w/ eSATA&USB2.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Just a followup to my earlier review and another users post: there is some conflicting information concerning SATAIII - 6Gb/s support; Icy Dock's documentation states that this fully supports SATA III. I purchased three of these in late 2011, and all three bays have been running SATA III drives at full 6Gb/s speed since that time through today with no issue.

Cons: see previous review

SONICWALL 01-SSC-4977 TZ 215  Wireless-N Network Security Appliance
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Stunning Firewall 10/05/2012

This review is from: SONICWALL 01-SSC-4977 TZ 215 Wireless-N Network Security Appliance

Pros: Everything you could ever want in a firewall and more. Customizable to the nth degree, this firewall can do just about anything. One of the fastest devices on the market.

Inherent features: 2.4 and 5Ghz wireless, with up to 8 virtual wireless networks, all fully customizable with the ability to map to any network or make standalone or bridged. Each port can be setup however you want. Full firewall access list support. QoS, Up to 25 VPN client connections, 25 built in site to site VPN connections, and up to 25 web-based SSL-VPN connections.

Service-based features: full threat management system, from antivirus to deep packet inspection, etc.

The setup wizards are great for simple configs, but I found that I re-did what they setup for finer control.

Cons: Surprisingly I've managed to lock it up a few times while digging deep into the configuration and customizing it; didn't expect that from a device of this class, that's the only reason for the 4 eggs.

Service-based features are expensive, but that's no surprise; they are targeted at business use and this requires constant updates from SonicWALL. I am disappointed that you have to one-time license the VPN connections however; if it supports 25, I want 25.

**Not for the faint of heart; I considered myself very adept at networking, latest technologies, routing, have done IOS programming,, etc., and this thing can be intimidating to configure. Be prepared to spend a lot of time reading. Simple things that you take for granted in a desktop router must be manually configured, such as loop back, port redirection, wireless network bridging to LAN, etc. But that's all part of how customizable this is.

Other Thoughts: I've been a heavy DD-WRT user for years; this was the next step in true control over my networks. Would highly recommend this to anyone who has outgrown DD-WRT on desktop-class routers.
