Pros: --- Great price when on sale Gb per dollar
--- Well-respected namebrand in the SSD market
--- Proven performance and longevity
Cons: --- Included software has no Windows 10 support. RAPID mode is only supported with 500GB Evo Pro models and 840 models.
--- Most buyers purchase the Samsung's SSD for the software options (RAPID Mode)
Other Thoughts: I'm pretty amazed Samsung hasn't updated their own software for Windows 10. This will give their company a bad reputation for not supporting their own software.
I purchased the 850 EVO 500 Gb due to the fact that I was amazed and happy with my 256 Gb 840 EVO. Didn't realize the software would not be updated nor supported in Windows 10. A bit let down by Samsung to be honest.
Still a nice SSD for the price.
Pros: --- Great price for the storage size when on sale ($129.99)
--- Proven reliable namebrand when it comes to HDD
--- Decent speeds (see other comments)
--- Well packaged product (First HDD I've ever received from newegg that didn't come with only bubble wrap, but in a foamed box with padding & air cushions)
Cons: --- It's a mechanical hard drive, not a SSD
Other Thoughts: I have two of these drives set up as RAID 1 on a SYBA 2-port SATA3 Asmedia hardware RAID chipset. Everything works flawlessly. Used Windows bitlocker on them and everything is running fine.
Here are bencmarks for the people who like speeds:
Sequential Read: 114 MB/s
Sequential Write: 110 MB/s
Random Read: 817 IOPS
Random Write: 621 IOPS
I highly recommend this product if you're looking for extra storage at a good price range. Proven HDD namebrand.
This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR4500-100NAR N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router
Pros: --- 600 Ghz Core CPU
--- 128 Mb RAM & ROM
--- Pretty powerful for the price, unless you luck out on a DOA
--- Great DD-WRT support and forum savvy
--- Runs cool for the amount of heat it generates
Cons: --- Refurbished. Hit or miss risk.
--- Original pictures show product with a matte finish. My refurbished product had a glossy finish. Gets dusty real quick and easy to stain with fingerprints.
Other Thoughts: If you got a working unit, it's a bang for your buck. For the price and the performance you get, it's hard not to be happy. Stock NetGear firmware is okay for average users; has a networking map which is neat and has an auto-ethernet connect for beginners.
I recommend flashing this unit to DD-WRT firmware because it has a lot more options. It's the main reason why you should be buying this router; flashing to DD-WRT. Works absolutely outstanding and the features are great. VPN, Mac cloning, and NAT/QoS configurations are a few features you can play with. DD-WRT support for this model is great and active. Highly recommend this purchase for a low budget-friendly router.
