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 IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
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.
This review is from: APC BR700G Back-UPS Pro 700VA 6-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Pros: --- Namebrand product with trusted reliability
--- High wattage capacity for servers or power-intensive workstations
--- LCD screen & easy of use
--- Small compact design
Cons: --- Annoying high pitch noise (See other comments listed below)
Other Thoughts: As with other reviews listed below, this product does indeed give off a high pitch noise. It is quite noticeable at a yard's length or less. I purchased this product from a private seller knowing this product had noise problems in its various reviews.
I do clarify that this product, a high-end APC power battery backup supply, does indeed have a high pitch noise. If you have a noisy tower case with static pressure case fans, like mine, you won't be bothered by it. If you want pure quietness, look elsewhere. It's quite noticeable.
Overall, it's still a good product, besides the noticeable noise. Maybe its the unshielded wires in the product that's emitting high EMI? I wouldn't know and dont plan on opening it unless the battery dies. Works fine, protects my $$$ PC so I am satisfied with my purchase.
