BUFFALO LinkStation 441e (LS441DE) Diskless System Diskless Enclosure High Performance RAID NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Extremely easy to setup.
- Aesthetics are nice and simple
- Like other Buffalo devices I've used, the web interface is very intuitive and well designed. It makes setting up the NAS or checking its status easy.

Cons: - Very little feedback about how long a disk check operation will take. Eventually I found that logging into the web interface and going to the RAID Array section shows a progress percentage, but this is not documented anywhere.
- Drive bays are made of plastic. Would prefer they be made of some sort of metal.
- Included software is a bit redundant. Its essentially just a limited version of the web interface.

Other Thoughts: Using 2x 3TB WD Red drives in RAID1, it took about 30 hours for the disk sync to complete. So if you're setting up a RAID array, don't be alarmed if it seems like the sync is taking a while - log in to the web interface and go to Advanced Settings > Drives > RAID and you'll see the current array sync progress listed in the far right column.

BELKIN BE108230-12 12 Feet 8 Outlets 3390 Joules Surge Protector w/ Telephone Line/Coaxial Protection/Extended Cord
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Low profile makes it nice and unobtrusive

- Outlets are spaced apart widely. Plenty of room to plug in even the absurdly large power plugs

Cons: Absolutely no cons thus far.

HooToo® HT-UH010 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub with 2 Smart-Charging Ports for iPad, iPhone, Smart Phones & Tablets (Latest VIA VL812 Chipset, 12V/5A Power Adapter, 3.3ft USB Data Cable)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Works flawlessly with a USB switch to switch this hub between multiple computers.

- Plenty of ports, the dedicated charging ports are really handy for charging my mobile devices.

- Looks nice, and the packaging is very nice too.

Cons: - The USB ports are a little too tight - plugging in something, it feels like you have to force it a little too hard.

Other Thoughts: $50 for a USB hub is definitely on the high end of the spectrum.
