NETGEAR Prosafe 8-port 10 Gigabit Unmanaged Plus Switch (XS708E)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs well worth it! True 10Gb for the home/SMB 01/04/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR Prosafe 8-port 10 Gigabit Unmanaged Plus Switch (XS708E)

Pros: Quiet (if you keep it cool). The other review on here says its loud but mine is in the garage and i cant even hear it over the three 120mm fans in my server case.
Small form factor and comes with rank mount parts. The software is a bit bloated but you can use the switch out of the box without configuring it. Advanced settings are great if you need them. Vlans, LACP, QOS, throttling... Etc! The best mix of management for an unmanaged switch. I hope this forces Cisco to drop their copper Nexus prices!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Copper 10Gb adapters are still expensive but well worth it if you need the bandwidth.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Large and fast. - paid $60 each during black friday.

Cons: You need a new/newer PC for this. My core2Duo system would kick this drive out. Placed it into a newer i7 system and it works 24/7 without any issues.

Other Thoughts: I cant wait for the 4TB drives to reach this price.
