Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: 64MD DRAM Cache
NAND 8GB (MLC)
SATA 6Gb/s interface
standard 3.5 in drive for desktops
5 Year warranty
8 Heads / 4 Disk

Cons: Over all size is rated at 4Tb when its formats out at 3.63Tb,

Other Thoughts: speed testing I averaged about 165MBS for read and write using ATTO.

as you use the system it will keep the HOT (used a lot) files in the 8GB NAND to speed things up over time, as file are access over and over again. Other wise drive is as fast as a typical drive. Copies of file went fast after they were flagged a HOT files during the 2nd and 3 time moving over the other Drive or opening then images up in Photoshop.

I used this as a storage drive, not the main OS drive as that is a m.2 SSD,

system used: GA 170X Mobo, i7 6700K w/ Corsair h100 cooler, 16BG Ram, 500GB m.2 SSD OS drive. Seagate 4TB storage for review.

3 out of 5 eggs Meh Router 03/30/2016

This review is from: Linksys EA2750 N600 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router

Pros: 4 Gigabit ports and 1 internet port
External storage.
ablity to have a guest network

Cons: Small antenna's
Non replaceable antenna's
No status lights on the front (only on the wired ports).
no wall mount option.

Other Thoughts: had issues connecting to the router at times, this router has issues when there are a lot of other AC points around. This is a very basic home unit, has some plus on some fo the features (parent controls and guest wireless).

for apartemnt or area where there can be lots of other wifi the signals router doesnt stand out, and more of the issues connecting to it were because of the saturation of the 2.4 band in the area I was testing. Did OK holding a signal when I limited the number of routers that were on.

would have expected a little more out of it for the price point. Nothing make this router stand out at best I would stay this is good for a small home with 1 -2 devices connecting to it on a regular biases

Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream AC1900 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs New tech for 4K MU-MIMO 02/25/2016

This review is from: Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream AC1900 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router

Pros: - wave 2 technology, moving towards streaming to more than one device at a time (current is round robin approach). Limited support for MU-MIMO client side.
- Dual Band AC1900 Wireless speeds up to 1300 Mbps 5 GHz + 600 Mbps 2.4GHz, which is a combined speed up to 1.9 Gbps (depending on device and enviroment)
- 4 gigabit Lan ports and 1 gigabit internet port ( most homes speed will be lower but will change over time).
- One USB 3.0 and One USB 2.0 ports for connecting printers, storage and more

Cons: - Linksys wifi app still needs some work. Support for features.
- 2.4Ghz band is not the best (so-so at best) 2.4Ghz devices had better speeds on Netgear or WRT 1900AC router.

Other Thoughts: - 3 Adjustable adjustable antennas for maximum coverage
- Qualcomm IPQ 1.4GHz Dual Core Processor

- Over all router looks plain and nothing like some of the classic linkys routers, Has all of the bells and whistles that people are looking for, plus some for the more advance users (NAT, DMZ setup, Firewall )

Main server connected ASUS Rog Mobo, 16GB memory, 2600K proc
Lan test GA SOC X99, i7-5820K 32GB Ram
2.4 Ghz NUC i5 16GB Ram running Centos 7.2
AC test Asus Rog Gaming laptop 16GB,
