ZyXEL NWA1123-NI Dual-Radio Ceiling Mount N600 Gigabit PoE Access Point (AP)/Repeater
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Wonderful Unit, UI Difficult 07/11/2014

This review is from: ZyXEL NWA1123-NI Dual-Radio Ceiling Mount N600 Gigabit PoE Access Point (AP)/Repeater

Pros: Small, compact, extremely efficient, POE!!, dual band and gig network. Able to handle multiple SSID's, supports RAIDUS and you can have each SSID with a different encryption (which I can see being super handy in a major enterprise level network, I use this for home cos I am like that). SSID Profiles too. Also supports VLAN as well

Cons: Like I said in the title the UI is not intuitive at all and it took me about 10 minutes to figure out how to set up my WPA2. I can set up a SonicWall for a somewhat complex network in an hour, but I had to use Google to find in a forum post on how to set up WPA2 cos by default it wants to use RAIDUS.
I also was a bit disappointed that there is no way to segregate the SSID's outside of VLAN.

Other Thoughts: I went from a Zyxel consumer grade to this and it is like night and day. My laptop WiFi sits at 300mb and it really doesn't move much even when I copy 1.5gb MKV's across to my file server. I used to have issues with All Play working (DLNA based stuff) and my bluray player seeing my HTPC for streaming shared content from my file server over my wireless and now it finds it EVERYTIME and their isn't any slowness. I also use my laptop for bit torrenting and this thing handles it no problem. I HIGHLY recommend this unit - totally worth the cash. Best AP I have seen for about $100 in 5 years.

Antec P280 Black Aluminum / Steel Super Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Large Case, But Wonderful 03/29/2014

This review is from: Antec P280 Black Aluminum / Steel Super Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Large interior, thumb screws just about everywhere, wiring channels, SSD and USB 3 friendly, lots of quiet fans, not a big glowing box (not a fan of tons of lights)

Cons: The 5.25 bay was a pain for mounting my DVD drive, was worried about breaking the sliding hold mechanism cos it is flimsy feeling tin and I had to push REALLY hard to get the drive to go in as the teeth for that part was catching the mount holes prematurely. I got it in, but like I said - was worried about that busting.
I also was a bit disappointed that no front fans came with it, however it did look like you could mount them.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what the complaint about a plastic door was cos I too got a metal doors (maybe this is a different revision?).
Also if you don't want to run a molex up top to run all 3 fans YOU CAN pull the wires off the board and just use the 3 pin header - you may also have to turn one of the top fans 180 degrees to make the cable run all the way down to the header on the board (I had to with my M4N98TD).
This case is VERY quiet and I am super happy with it going from a P180 to this. I also like how they changed the dust screen on the front - kudos to that, great design. the channels are wide and I got a lot of rails (24pin power, 8 pin CPU, and both of my SLI PCIE power) through one of the channels.
Highly recommended!

ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 4 Memory Slots
Lots of CPU Support
Great Bios and Features
Pseudo Xfire support

Cons: Onboard sound is VERY flat, went back to using SB Live 24bit sound card cos the OB sound was VERY lame
No SLI Support only Xfire

Other Thoughts: Got this board in the hopes that we could get some good OB sound, only to be disappointed.
Outside of that one complaint and that it doesn't support SLI (honestly it wasn't a deal breaker only a disappointment)
I docked it an egg for lackluster sound, my woman has been very happy with this board.
on this board I am using:
Phenom ii 965
DDR3 1600 (Corsair)
RE4 1TB SATA
SB Live 24bit sound card
GTX260 (ASUS)
