TRENDnet TEG-S50G Unmanaged 5-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs The test of a switch is how long it lasts. 05/16/2016

This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S50G Unmanaged 5-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch

Pros: Works.

Cons: Didn't include a unicorn.

Update 5/16/16: one of the ports has gone bad and become erratic. Other ports remain reliable, so now a 4-port switch.

Other Thoughts: The test of a switch is how long it lasts. For whatever reason, I haven't had a 10/100/1000 switch last longer than 3 years, while I have 10/100 switches working great after more than a decade of use. If this one fails, I'll come back and update this review.

SanDisk SD8SBAT-128G-1122 Z400s 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Solid, inexpensive drive. 05/16/2016

This review is from: SanDisk SD8SBAT-128G-1122 Z400s 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Low price. I only need this for a network gateway running pfSense, which uses FreeBSD and doesn't require much in the way of performance from a drive. This fits the bill. Has threaded metal fastener holes on sides and bottom.

Cons: None, really, other than for a drive at this price, expectations shouldn't be too high, although if purchasing as an upgrade from HDD, it should provide a noticeable improvement in performance, though another $10-15 might get yet a better drive.

Other Thoughts: Comes with only the SSD, nothing else, so if you need a height adapter for installing into a device, such as some laptops and other applications, you will need to get that separately.

StarTech BRACKETFDBK 3.5in Hard Drive to 5.25in Front Bay Bracket Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Looks good, works well. 05/16/2016

This review is from: StarTech BRACKETFDBK 3.5in Hard Drive to 5.25in Front Bay Bracket Adapter

Pros: Looks totally natural in my case, unlike some other similar products that can add a Frankenstein element to a case. Has 3.5" mounting holes for both the side and bottom of the mounted device, so should be compatible with pretty much everything.

Plastic is thick and sturdy.

Cons: The plastic is thick, so the fasteners for attaching the device to the tray will need to be longer than usual, maybe another 3-5 mm.

It uses self-tapping fasteners for the tray's side mounts connecting to the bay. If the bay doesn't use the removable slot-type attachments, then attachment is likely only going to be single-use, as my experience with self-tapping fasteners has been that re-use just completely strips out the plastic, though I suppose wood glue could be used at that point.
