Pros: Works fine
Immense value for the money
Cons: Unbelievably cheap case
Incredibly loud back fan
Only one normal size drive bay
Other Thoughts: Remember that this is a barebones. You will need to add a HDD and RAM (only comes with 2gb) and an optical drive.
The back case fan is INCREDIBLY noisy, even at its slower speeds when the ambient temp is cold. It's almost comically loud. BUT that said, it's a little fully monitored (HP ILO) server for a good price if you can stand the noise. I use it as a house file server to serve streaming media and for a syslog server. For these tasks, it works great and has been very reliable. As long as you know what you're getting into and just need a reliable little file server that can also run some basic processes such as a syslog server, this is a great deal.
This review is from: NETGEAR SRX5308-100NAS ProSafe Quad WAN Gigabit SSL VPN Firewall
Pros: High throughput
Sturdy steel case
Redundant WAN ports
Gigabit all around
Good VPN support
Internal power supply
Cons: Early firmware buggy (newest firmware works much better)
SSL issues with IE11
Other Thoughts: Had to use Chrome to get the firmware updated because early firmware has SSL issues with IE11 and latest Firefox so couldn't get to user interface except with Chrome. With newer firmware and remote HHTPS management turned off, can now use Firefox as well. Otherwise, an excellent router with astronomical throughput and a fairly easy to use interface, Very nice.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port PoE Gigabit Smart Switch + 2 SFP Ports - Lifetime Warranty (GS110TP)
Pros: Provides POE power
Features actually work
Other Thoughts: Amazing switch for the price. I use features such as static mac tables, port protection, NTP servers, syslog, etc. They all actually work on this switch. I found a firmware bug, submitted a support ticket, anf they included the fix in the next firmware release. Now that's support. Very happy.READ FULL REVIEW
