Coboc CY-CAT5E-25-PR 25ft.24AWG Snagless Cat 5e Purple Color 350MHz UTP Ethernet Stranded Copper Patch cord /Molded Network lan Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, Works, Transfer rate seems pretty good

Cons: Oily outer insulation I know this sounds odd but it's true. You can tell this cable has less copper then a better quality cable. But the cable is very loose... The stiffer the cable is the chances you have more copper in those wires.

Other Thoughts: Ok... All in all it's fine cheap, works well, and transfer is good. BUT! It's cheap... The copper inside is not stiff I don't like soft cables. It makes me think that I have less copper which I probably do... flimsy. Fine cable just be weary if you start having problems it's probably the cable but it's not like it was a pricey investment.

TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, I was surprise but the Web-based UI was faster than my Linksys E1000. I'm sure you can tell when transferring data as well. CHEAP

Cons: None that I know of... If this thing last a year it was worth it... QoS was difficult to find so I gave up trying to QoS a playstation.

Other Thoughts: I bought this router for a neighbor and got it setup for him. It came with a disk but I never use those things when setting up routers. Couldn't find the QoS setting tab but he has complimented it stating it's "Fast". It came with a Cat5e cable and ran him $20. So, what the router pretty much cost $10. Can't go wrong with that... If it runs for a year he got his money worth. TP-Link has been really trying to make a name for themselves. Keep it comin'!

WD Black 250GB Performance Mobile Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD2500BEKX

5 out of 5 eggs WD is great just don't stray from the Black Series 04/18/2014

This review is from: WD Black 250GB Performance Mobile Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD2500BEKX

Pros: Fast, large cache, great energy efficiency, and an exceptional warranty.

Better than any other series in the WD line-up. I don't roll with raptors and don't care 2.

Cons: None... maybe the price but a heck of a lot cheaper vs an SSD choice. The price is worth it when you consider Black Series drive have a 5-year warranty.

Other Thoughts: I first purchased an SSD for drive replacement but had nothing but trouble. It was locking up my computer and rebooting it coming out of sleep mode. Then, I started having read/write errors. So, I sent it back to Newegg where Newegg really took care of me.

Then, after I got my RMA approved I went ahead and purchased this drive. A solid choice WD BLACK $115 cheaper and with just enough performance to keep my spoiled personality in line.

Stay away from the Blue Series. I work as a Support Technician and you wouldn't believe how many Blue Series drives we have sent off... I know out of a few hundred there will be a bad drive... I have just had way better luck with Black Series drives and they have a warranty to assure lasting performance.

Reds don't perform that well either if you are looking for a NAS WD go for any series above the Red. Those are enterprise drives so they should run faster and last longer. Reds are consumer level NAS so they are suppose to be affordable. Read too many negative reviews to put my money on it.

Hope this helps! Best of Luck!
