EnGenius ESR9850 802.11b/g/n High Performance Wireless N Gigabit Router up to 300Mbps
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Setup - Price - Speed

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: Android Issue - I had a connection issue and changed security to WPA(TKIP) on a separate SSID and this resolved all problems. WPA2(AES) and WPA2 Mixed modes seem to have an issue but for the price this is an excellent router, I did not buy it to use my cellular phone on.

If you don't have at least an associates degree in IT and can do programming you are NOT tech level 5!!

Western Digital WD RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's A WD - Price/On Sale - Never had any issues with any of my WD drives

Cons: Price/Not on Sale

Other Thoughts: I read some reviews stating this drive was LOUD - I have two in a RAID0 setup and never hear them even under heavy read/write. I am very pleased with the performance and reliability as I have had these for just about a year in a RAID0 setup, but I don't leave my rig running 24/7.

Benchmarks in RAID0 setup using Z68X-UD3H-B3 marvell onboard raid controller.

Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a WD, Price/On Sale, Made it past 30 Days, Never Had Issues with WD

Cons: Price/Not on Sale - It's been a year since the floods and they are back to full production

Other Thoughts: I have a WD RE4 500Gb Raid0 setup for fast storage and was going to use this as a secondary backup to the Raid setup and I was really surprised by the performance of this Blue 1Tb drive. CDM 3 benchmarks below -
