This review is from: ARK IPC-2U238 Black 2U Rackmount Server Case 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: Use: Small Business File Server
Configuration: ASUS H97M-E/CSM uATX Motherboard
16 GB RAM (2 x 8 GB)
Four 4TB HGST NAS SATA 3 hard drives - RAID 1 with hot spare, 4th drive used for backups
Nice, well made case.
Cons: Cannot screw down 1 of the 2 hard drive brackets. Lower hard drive presses against ATX 24-pin power connector on motherboard and bends the motherboard.
Case is NOT USABLE with 4 hard drives.
CASE DOES NOT MEET SPEC!
Other Thoughts: Power supply MUST have vents on the ends of the supply - towards the front of the case and the rear where the power cord connects. The bottom of the case and top of the case fit flush with the power supply. Power supplies with a big fan on the bottom, which is most power supplies (PSUs), will have the big fan inlet blocked.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-402E2K Powerline AV Adapter Kit w/ Pass-through Up to 500Mbps
Pros: Plug and play. If you just want to connect 2 network devices, the installation was simple and it worked. The speeds from one side of my house to the other side is about 108 MBPS.
Cons: The software Powerline Utility, which lets you enable security, change from public to private, rename devices, and MANAGE your network, IS A FRUSTRATING AND USELESS PIECE OF JUNK!!! I emailed support and they responded in a couple of days with suggestions. Unfortunately, their suggestions for using the Powerline Utility were as ineffective as the utility itself. But now, after a couple of months, the Powerline Utility doesn't even run. It says to reinstall.
Other Thoughts: I hope my neighbors can't see my shared folders!!! These powerline devices surely will not be able to stop them!
GOOD HARDWARE. FRIGHTFULLY POOR SOFTWARE.
This review is from: Linksys E1200 Wireless-N300 Router
Pros: I am a reseller. I have installed about a dozen of these. Configuration is simple, and the guest network is an added bonus. No problems with any of these so far. I always check for updated firmware before adding wireless keys, changing the wireless channel to avoid congestion, or changing the LAN DHCP to something non-standard like 10.0.0.10 to .20, with the router IP set for 10.0.0.1.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: A major cause of failure of any router is power problems, so make sure you have a good surge protector. I like the Cyberpower 750.READ FULL REVIEW
