Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD3 64GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Nice boot drive for laptop 12/14/2012

This review is from: Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD3 64GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Straight forward installation in a Lenovo E430 laptop. Migrated the boot partition using Paragon Hard Disk Mgr. without difficulty. Win7 WEI score for data transfer rate = 7.9

Cons: None so far (to early to tell)

Other Thoughts: I've also used this msata card in a SYBA SY-ADA40050 Mini-SATA to 2.5" SATA Adapter with success in a desktop PC.

Netgear WNR3500L-100NAR Wireless-N Router RangeMax Opensource with USB

5 out of 5 eggs Nice deal on an upgradeable router 05/10/2012

This review is from: Netgear WNR3500L-100NAR Wireless-N Router RangeMax Opensource with USB

Pros: Gigabit switch. Firmware upgradeable to DD-WRT or Tomato-USB

Cons: None yet - it's only been a week

Other Thoughts: I’ve only had my WNR-3500L running for about a week, after loading Tomato-USB firmware on it in a two-step process.
If you want to load DD-WRT, or Tomato-USB firmware , I found the following websites essential for study:

1. A refurbished 3500L comes in several “flavors,” and what you get definitely constrains your choices about what firmware version you can use. Mine is a straight 3500L. is probably the site that has the clearest focus on WNR-3500L differences, how to recognize them, etc.

2. covers basics of firmware upgrading the best. The “30-30-30” reset is an essential part of the process - know it cold. Firmware I used:

dd-wrt.v24-13309_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-WNR3500L.chk (1)
tomato-K26USB-1.28.9054-MIPSR2-beta-Ext.trx (2)

Rename the .trx extension to .bin before upgrading

BIOSTAR VA4673NH51-B Radeon HD 4670 512MB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet fans allows this card to run cool at 38 - 40C for light work.

Windows 7 WEI increased from 4.9 (Radeon 4550) to 5.9, with addition of this card being the only change.

No extra power required, as has been mentioned before.

Cons: It's early, but none to speak of so far.
