Linksys EA6200 Dual Band AC900 Smart Wi-Fi Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast (40MHz N, 80MHz AC)
Relatively inexpensive
Excellent range
Very configurable, down to turning the port lights off.

Cons: Somewhat unstable (has crashed twice since setup over a month ago)
Drops internet connection at random once a week, old router never did this.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from an E2500 in order to get onboard Gigabit and AC band. This router transfers very fast even on 5GHz N connections compared to the E2500.

However, Belkin Firmware leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn't appear to be very stable and like most people here, I don't care for the interface.

If you can deal with voiding your warranty and spare about an hour, I'd recommend flashing the Asus RT-AC56U (tomato-based) firmware which effectively gets the EA6200 running DD-WRT. I did this last week and haven't had a crash or connection drop yet, but time will tell.

Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive
Fast, 135MB/s sustained xfer
Quiet spindle and seek*

Cons: *occasionally makes a loud scratching noise when unparking the heads.

2 year warranty is among the lowest out there.

Other Thoughts: My old Hitachi 3TB made this type of noise randomly while sweeping the platters, but the Seagate is even louder and it can be jarring in a quiet room.

In regards to support, WD Red has a 3 year warranty for the same price and is rated at 24/7 use. I regret not buying the Red even though it is about 10% slower. You can't put a price on data.

ADATA S510 Series AS510S3-120GM-O 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Failed in a year, no warning, info lost 01/10/2014

This review is from: ADATA S510 Series AS510S3-120GM-O 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Very slow
Stuttery performance

Other Thoughts: The whole purpose of an SSD in a desktop is superior performance and reliability. apparently ADATA and OCZ don't get that, since I see more of their drives fail than any others by a huge margin. OCZ has paid the price, ADATA will probably be next. Other people have reliable Sandforce drives (Intel) so what is up with these other manufacturers?

Avoid. Stick to Intel, Crucial, Samsung, etc.
