TRENDnet TPL-402E2K Powerline AV Adapter Kit w/ Pass-through Up to 500Mbps
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

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!

Linksys E1200 Wireless-N300 Router

5 out of 5 eggs E1200 - Works fine 09/10/2012

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 to .20, with the router IP set for

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.

PROMISE SmartStor DS4600 RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 4 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good for small backup file size: under ~350GB backups complete in under 12 hours using Backup Exec.

Cons: One drive light out, but utility says all drives are OK. Slow backups: I get 1200MB/sec to a different USB drive (Seagate) and only 350-400MB/sec to this one. The Promise used to deliver 1400MB/sec, so it seems to be failing. Deleting all data - which was very badly fragmented - did not help the speed. Using four 1.5TB Enterprise drives - 3 in RAID5 and 1 hot spare.

Other Thoughts: I have another one of these DS4600s backing up for a different customer. We back up about 80GB each night and it works fine. Between both customers, all 8 drives are Enterprise class. In 15 months, have replaced 4 drives, which seems high for drives rated for this kind of service.
