ZyXEL ZyWALL ZWUSG20W 802.11n Wireless Internet Security Firewall with 4 Gigabit LAN / DMZ Ports, 2 IPSec VPN, SSL VPN , and 3G WAN Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of settings means lots of customization. If you need two subnets, need them to be separated from each other, and need different restrictions to each subnet, this is the device for you. Third party router firmware, like DD-WRT, just can't compare for all those features.

Cons: Lots of settings means lots of complication. Be prepared to study, research, and test. And each test requires a restart which requires 4 minutes of wait until it reboots. Also, sometimes the device just stops working. You'll have to unplug it for a long time, as in several hours, before it will start working again. Keep a backup router handy for such down times.

Other Thoughts: If you don't want a separate wireless access point and need a firewall router, this is your best choice.

LSI MegaRAID Internal  Low-Power SATA/SAS 9240-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a follow-up to my review -- -- and all the pros still apply.

Cons: But here is something new. On some motherboards you can either use the LSI adapter or the motherboard SATA adapter but not both. I started with an Asus motherboard but I was having stability problems so I replaced it with a Supermicro server motherboard. The Asus was either/or, the Supermicro you can use both. Another problem, you cannot mix and match configurations. I started with a RAID-5 on the LSI card with a regular standalone 120 GB for a boot drive. Any drive intensive task on the RAID-5 would cause the OS to reboot. I moved the 120 GB to my Supermicro motherboard, and I have not had any stability problems since.

Other Thoughts: If you can work around the quirks it really is not a bad product. Knowing what I know now I would not hesitate to install another one if I could guarantee the right situation. Don't have multiple configurations and you should be okay if your motherboard is compatible.

Team Xtreme 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model TXD316G2400HC10QDC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The memory timings and voltage are recognized in the UEFI. It is a good price for the speed.

Cons: But I could never get it POST at full speed, even with the timings and voltage provided. I did get it stable at 2133 MHz. Good enough for me.
