EnGenius ESR9850V2 Wireless N Router with Gigabit Ports IEEE 802.11b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Works, but has flaws. Going in the garbage. 03/15/2013

This review is from: EnGenius ESR9850V2 Wireless N Router with Gigabit Ports IEEE 802.11b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Works-
-simple to set up,
-defaults that make sense
-games for windows live works with it (which isnt as common as you'd think)
-has a high enough wan to lan throughput to keep up with 30mbit wan

Cons: -Does not keep track of DHCP leases through a reboot. this is BAD because the default DHCP lease time is FOREVER. update did not work when my IP changed, forcing me to reboot the router.
-forwarding TCP/UDP 1723 to a LAN machine (pptp server) caused UDP53 (DNS) to stop working. (???) Repeated this three times to be sure...
-Cant seem to block wan IP ranges in the firewall. Might be user error.
-Interface wants to default to a wizard for everything, and the wizard wants to overwrite any manual settings. Annoying

Other Thoughts: I purchased this after reading rave reviews from on the v1 hardware for this model. After using it a couple weeks, this might just be the worst router I've ever used- only trumped by the $200 netgear I bought locally that couldn't figure out upnp as well as my 10+ year old wrt54gv2.

NORCO RPC-810D Black Steel 4U Rackmount Chassis 3 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid build, standard ATX psu, fits even a server-sized motherboard

Cons: 60mm exaust vents on the back, 80mm on the top.

Optical drive cage can interfere a little with huge motherboards.

Other Thoughts: I find myself using only the two 120mm intakes because noise is an issue. You CAN fit sata drives, but some cables would cause interferance with the case, including the vertical style SATA plugs.
Theres obviously no room for sata adaptors on pata drive, but it can fit 6 drives.
The corner of my K7D kindof touches the 5.25 cage- after so many changes i've almost broken a cap off.
