This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router
Pros: While it worked, everything was fine. There was an issue with a buggy firmware update back in February of this year, and that seems to have been resolved.
Cons: Suddenly today I couldn't connect to my NAS. I checked the router and discovered that the port light wasn't lit, nor was the one for the switch in another room. After moving patch cords around, I discovered that 3 LAN ports were out, and my tower computer was the only one working, and that's connected to port #1; the other 3 have no response at all. Having spent a chuck of change on this in July of 2014, I'm disappointed in this.
Other Thoughts: Thankfully I was able to move the small Gigabit 5 port switch and connect my computer and NAS, although this leaves the other room with no wired connection for my Linux box. The sad part is that I have an old WNR running dd-wrt, and that's still chugging along. I may have to put that into full service in the spare room to give me connections for the Linux box and other devices. I'll have to try the dreaded reset, although from what I've read, this hasn't helped other customers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this 2 years ago, and (knock on wood), it's still going strong.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It was relatively easy to install the laptop SATA drive from a dead laptop, although I had to kind of angle the drive in to mate with the connector. The case snapped back together with a little effort.
Cons: The cable is insanely short. If you want to connect this to anything other than a laptop or USB hub, get an extension cable.
Other Thoughts: Not sure how they could attach a longer cable to this enclosure. Perhaps they should consider including at least a 15cm (6") extension for those who may have to connect to a front or rear USB port on a tower/desktop computer. I have a USB 3 hub with vertical ports on top of my tower, and it just about had room to connect with the stock cable.READ FULL REVIEW
