Pros: - Maintains a strong connection over longer distances than i personally have ever used before, it can connect to routers that are very very far away.

- Backward compatibility on nearly every type of router.

- Had no driver issues and the management tools aren't too complex.

- Very useful for heavy WiFi polluted areas where other adapters would get bad connections.

- Comes with a low profile bracket... I'm reaching there's not much to say it is just a wireless adapter.

Cons: As far as cons go there isn't really any with the device itself, it does what it is supposed to do, the settings utility isn't windows 8.1 ready yet the drivers are that's all that most people should need at the moment though.

This is again one of the strongest adapters Ive used and seeing as it can connect to a large amount of router models (ac/a/b/g/n) you may see a ton of available connections from your neighborhood which may or may not be a con.

The back of the box seems to play on peoples ignorance to computers and wireless technology companies still putting checkboxes next to stuff like emails and chats as if certain models couldn't do that is just weird if not confusing now.

Other Thoughts: There is alot of redundancies with high speed adapters and routers, an overwhelming majority of internet services providers and internet users are stuck with <30mbps connections in the USA.. meaning basic wireless G 54mbps speeds from 2001 are still more than required for most users.

Due to that fact there's a massive amount of wireless G pollution from many users using it resulting in bad signals in city areas, which is where adapters like this shine.

About the only usefulness in this is in a non city area is transferring data between computers inside your home using the same model/speed of adapter so you can transfer data as fast as the hard drive can write in most cases, speeds faster than 54mbps will not usually help with even streaming HD movies as even bluray movies only have peak 4K data rates of 50mbps so unless your sending terabytes of data to another pc regularly or streaming several 4K resolution movies through a single router to multiple HDTVs you probably won't need this speed.

Its probably important to note this is being used with a matching TP link AC router i cannot guarantee the performance mix matching this adapter with other brand ac routers.

Overall if its great but pricey and i only recommend getting it if your wifi pollution situation is bad in a city and you need a strong connection or you are in an area with fiber ISP that would need these WiFi rates.

Seagate Enterprise NAS ST6000VN0001 6TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: - 6TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache
- 5 Year Warranty
- Price

Cons: At the time of posting this Seagates compatibility list on their site says that the 'Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD' 5 and 6 TB drives ST5000VN0001/ST6000VN0001 don't work on 'Seagate NAS PRO' bays???

Other Thoughts: This is just so people know maybe a firmware update will change that or maybe its a site error? Seems unusual since all the other enterprise NAS models are fully supported but for now its important to know!
