D-Link DAP-1665 Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Access Point

3 out of 5 eggs Great until it's not! 10/01/2014

This review is from: D-Link DAP-1665 Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Access Point

Pros: Very easy setup, extreme speed, reasonable cost. That's three of the four things I want in a wireless device.

The 5Ghz band doesn't have as much range as 2.4 but it's pretty good.

Cons: Unfortunately, the fourth thing I want is reliability and it's not there. I bought two of these and tested one at home and the other at the office. Both of them work great for a few days, then start randomly dropping connections. Logs look like it rebooted though the front panel lights never did anything. It will continue like this, dropping connection and clearing logs every few minutes until you physically remove power from it. Plug it back in and you're good for another day or two - and repeat.

Other Thoughts: I installed the newest firmware and did factory reset before trying anything else.

Lenovo ThinkServer TS130 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz 2C/4T 4GB No Hard Drive 1105B2U

3 out of 5 eggs Good value, but really, this is a Server? 08/23/2013

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS130 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz 2C/4T 4GB No Hard Drive 1105B2U

Pros: OK. I admit that this is a good value for the price and could be a low-end entry level server for some non-critical task.

Cons: Good luck adding more than 3 hard drives, additional network connectivity or other options, the small MicroATX form factor severely limits your choices.

Other Thoughts: It's frustrating to see how a marketing department twists the meanings of words, in this case the word "Server."

Lenovo calls this a Server. Most Newegg customers, especially those of us who build our own stuff, would call it a low-end Micro-ATX desktop computer.

In my opinion, a true server has at least one, preferably all, of these features: ability to add more processors; raid controller supporting 4 or more front-accessible hotswap drives; multiple network connections with teaming; out-of-band management access; support ridiculous amounts of ECC memory; redundant power supply. Having none of these, sorry to burst your balloon but this is a desktop-class machine.

Even better abuse of the language: take basically the same machine, slap in the cheapest current Nvidia Quadro card, Lenovo calls that a ThinkStation.

Don't get me wrong, Lenovo makes fantastic product; you just need to be fully aware of what it is and what the limitations are, before believing the product name assigned by marketing executives.

SNT SNT-BPSS302ATL 2 x 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works great. Easy access to three drives without having to open your computer case or remove any screws.

Cons: none at all

Other Thoughts: In my prior review, I questioned whether this enclosure is truly hot-swap. After much additional research, I have learned that the Adaptec 1430SA HostRAID is NOT hot-swap capable, thus it was the cause of the problems I experienced. I replaced it with an Adaptec 3405 SAS RAID controller and hot-swap works perfectly. The 1430 is several levels below 'entry level' and the only safe way to swap drives with it is with the system powered off.
