Linksys EA6500 Dual Band AC1750 Gigabit Wireless Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - USB Ports (1 US 3.0) allow flash drives/ext HDDs
- FTP Server support
- Media Server Support
- CLEAN UI
- Easy to Use
- Sleek Design
- Can Control LED's
- Tomato Firmware compatible

Cons: - Very Bulky Design
- Password Wont Work On Guest WIFI
- Sometimes I found that the GUI of the router configuration page would just randomly stop working. This is a major issue. As a result I installed a custom compiled version of Tomato firmware on it and it worked perfectly.
- The range is sporadic and would / grow randomly.
- Guest WIFI would cut out randomly
- Normal WIFI would cut out randomly
- The LAN ports would cut out with the guest wifi (huh?)
- Wifi would run slower than the UP/DOWN Speeds of my FiOS Network.

Other Thoughts: Ive been sick so sorry for the late review.

NOTE:
For these test I use this router for 2 weeks as my main router to make sure I make proper reviews. These reviews are done on my Main network and stress tested through streaming/file transfers/gaming/regular use. I use this router as anyone else would to simulate normal usage to a regular low knowledge / mid knowledge individual.

If none of this means anything to you here is a short summary of my review:

Cons outweigh pros. Look at other Linksys products. This one is not so great.

I make sure the firmware is up to date before benching.

TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline 200 AV Nano Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs AES? I think not? 02/01/2014

This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline 200 AV Nano Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps

Pros: Small low profile and easy to use devices. They seem to have a pretty long range too. I only seem to get 79 Mb/s through them though. Another funny thing is: I have a NETGEAR Powerline AV 200. I forgot to unplug it before putting one of these things in. It synced up with the NETGEAR Nano Adapter and the Netgear main adapter.

Overall, Simple and easy to use.

Cons: As far as I know, the NETGEAR does not have any encryption and I've tested that.

Using my knowledge of cryptography, I hooked up both TRENDnet devices into an isolated power unit. I hooked up my 303 Device to monitor the powerline network. The network was unencrypted and easy to MiM attack.

Sadly, this is not AES Encrypted as suggested. I will not be using these powerline adapters to send sensitive info through.

WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: High Capacity.

The high capacity of this drive makes it great for my Media files and any other file that may require long term storage without the need of SSDs.
Another example wold be documents or Development projects

High speeds.
I have a Previous generation 4TB WD Black Caviar and this has a higher speed than the previous generation of a noticeable amount.

Sturdy
The build of this device is obviously of high quality. There is some noticeable build improvements over the previous generation.

Sata 6Gb/s
This is obviously a great feat which allows me to take control of the higher Speeds


Im not gonna give benchmarks or anything due to previous reviews but for the people who dont know what the numbers mean, here is a perspective. For documents and media, the buffer/load time is lower than that of a normal hard drive. (Moving HDD) This provides quicker opening of files.

Cons: Multi platter

This is about the only con there is. Multi platter provides an issue with data loss. the more platters there are, the more likely one of them will fail. There also needs to be multiple heads for all the platters so that gives more parts that might fail.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a great drive and I recommend it to anyone who needs large capacity.
