OCZ RevoDrive RVDHY-FH-1T.RF PCI-E 1TB Hybrid Solid State Drive PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Budget friendly
Can be nicely parted:
Can be used as stand along 100Gb PCI-e Solid State Storage (Super fast transfers). Drivers for all windows systems.
1Tb Toshiba HDD goes nicely in laptop or portable storage
Perfect for portable systems with Windows 7. (they will be very fast)
DataPlex Cache Software does very good job on speeding up frequently used programs.
Excellent alternative, to high priced large storage with fast access

Cons: DataPlex Cache Software, that optimizes files for fast access, compatible only with Windows 7.
Requires multiple authenticity confirmations with live internet connection.
No longer being developed.

Other Thoughts: Make no mistake it is much faster then even 6G SSD drives when files are on 100Gb cache drive. (More then enough for OS and game files).
The PCI-e (vs. sata) solide state storage gives you the fastest access speed possible (thats what will be used in new Mac Pro's). This device is compromise between speed and cost. ITS WELL DESIGNED. It will work very well...
With proper installation procedure:
1. Load drivers on USB stick, add to system before OS install)
2. Install OS on main 1Tb drive (later it will merge with cache SSD by software)
3. Install DataPlex... make a few system restarts and wonder how the boot time gets less and less (files are being loaded to e-SATA SSD for super fast access)
Make sure to write down serial number from the label on the card, you will need it a few times later.

ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Wireless ++

Cons: Have been posted before but some how review is gone.
Its about 15 different things... Guess will stop here

Other Thoughts: It appears that all negative statements do not reach review board. My impression on having 3 latest Asus routers: RT-N65U is far from best.
Advice: AVOID

ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs USB 3.0 is just to show off | minimal wireless Improvement not worth the money | too many compromises the sake of marketing 09/08/2012

This review is from: ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort

Pros: Very easy setup, person with zero technical knowledge will have no problem whatsoever.
Excellent wireless performance
Asus download manager with support for Bit Torrent, Newsgroups (nzb), aMule
Media sharing with USB 3.0
Future support of Asus own AiDisk (cloud service)
Hardware NAT
BUT ALL OF THIS APPLIES TO ALL CURRENT ASUS ROUTERS

Cons: Without getting too technical:
Asus engineers sacrificed wired performance for the sake of having USB 3.0.
Router CPU can not handle USB 3.0 speed. Dual processor is just a marketing trick in reality. What hardware in RT-65U does versus RT-56U is light, very light increase in wireless performance that does not compensate what's lost from RT-56U.
A bit of technical know-how. Router constructed additional poorly integrated chipsets, with some of them now having duplicate functions that are just turned off. USB 3.0 presence is at cost of LAN-WAN performance.
For the sake of marketing and profit Asus produced USB 3.0 router to be in par with other manufacturers, I guess.

Other Thoughts: This is not the product to purchase, substantially better value RT-N56U. People for us all the same functions plus that performance overall. Difference in transfer speeds via USB is negligent.
If I will need to buy new product I will wait for mature version of the Asus RT-AC router line.
ASUS is still a preferred brand for many other reasons: good support, forward looking R&D dept, open source firmware. And probably desire to be the best :)
