ZyXEL GS1100-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Not bad while it lasted 02/07/2015

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch

Pros: Was reliable while it lasted. Install looked clean with internal PS.

Cons: Appears to have a lifespan of about 30 months base on reviews here. Mine lasted 31 months.

Other Thoughts: It works and is cheap enough when it's on sale that if you figure out what it costs and divide it by its likely lifespan, it may still be worth it. This is not, however, a business class switch. This is for someone who wants a rackmount switch in their home.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRL-3F-O ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: D/K

Cons: Despite representations to the contrary, newegg is shipping versions of this board with a bios that does not support e5-2600v2 processors. Of course, unless you have a v1 processor lying around, you can't update the bios yourself, so you have to send it in for an update. Since it took me more than 30 days for the rebuild and diagnoses, newegg won't exchange it despite the misrepresentation, which in my estimation is unethical if not illegal, so I'm stuck paying the freight to Supermicro along with waiting for SM's service department to get around to the update and return shipment.

Other Thoughts: Is it really that hard to get accurate information on a website?

Intel Xeon E5-2609 v2 Ivy Bridge-EP 2.5 GHz 10MB L3 Cache LGA 2011 80W BX80635E52609V2 Server Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: unknown

Cons: When originally posted, this stated that it came with a heat sink, it's since been corrected, but I ordered based on that promise.
