Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB-G2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast
Great price

Cons: Dead within three months

Other Thoughts: After three months of light use the drive is no longer recognized by the BIOS or any external enclosure. The RMA page on Mushkin's website is down so you have to request a ticket first and hopefully they get back to you.

Seagate Momentus Thin ST500LT012 500GB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small form factor
It stores data

Cons: They do not last
Data Loss
Upset clients

Other Thoughts: Seagate used to be a reliable brand of hard drive many years back. In the last few years they have really fallen short in the reliability department. I own a computer business and Seagate drives account for 90% of the failures that I see day in and day out. I avoid these drives at all costs. Hitachi is actually my preferred drive these days as they are very reliable.

ZyXEL PLA5206KIT HomePlug AV2 AV1000 Powerline Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, Up to 1000 Mbps
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small overall size
LED's not overly bright
Plug & Play....literally

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I replaced my TP-Link 500mbps adapters with these. Being AV2 I was excited to try the new spec. My old adapters never really got good speeds. The throughput wasn't too good and the middle light was always showing orange. I plugged these into the wall outlets and they stay green and after running a speed test I'm getting much better speeds than I did with the TP-Link's. I would recommend these for anyone who can't run a CAT5 cable across their house.
