This review is from: Rosewill Armer RX304-APU3-35B - External 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s Hard Drive Enclosure - USB 3.0 & eSATA Connection, Aluminum Body, 80 mm Variable Speed Fan with On / Off Switch, LED Display Panel
Pros: Got this to make a Network Drive with. I needed something with a fan and connect to my computer with USB 6.0 for faster transfers. It also works on my Netgear router with USB 2.0. The fan keeps it really cool as temps run 30deg C. I have a 1Tb WD Black drive installed in it and use it as a Media Server for my TV. Been able to watch movies off of it all day with temps never exceeding 35deg C.
Cons: Little tricky to install in case. Would have preferred a one piece plug to connect the hard drive with instead of 2 cables.
First one I got had to RMA would drop data connection after less than 5 minutes of use.Tried different drives, different connections and even ran it out of the case. Knew it was the enclosure as everything would work fine in my hard drive dock.
Other Thoughts: I have Linux installed on a separate drive. The first one I got and tried to use it in the enclosure; half way through boot it would loose data connection and hang up. I have had no problems with the second one.
Newegg replaced the first one free of charge including shipping. The only problem with that was it took 2 weeks to get a return.
This review is from: Logitech Harmony 650 Remote
Pros: Not a touch screen so my wife can use it.
Handles all 4 of my devices with full function on all devices.
Battery life is good, about 3 months
Easy to setup with download software
Cons: Program on line does not have all the functionality as the download software.
USB port failed on my first one, so I could not reprogram the remote. The remote worked fine with my original settings, just could not add to it. This one works fine.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace an e 250 that finally gave up the ghost after 4 years.
This is my second one of this type. The USB port failed on the first one, no way to program it. I had it all setup and tried to add some more function when I found the USB cable would not stay in and it could not communicate with the remote. All the original settings still worked.
Pros: Price Drop
Gigabyte LAN; 300M Wireless
Stands on end
No external Antenna
Open Source - Upgrade to Tomato
I live in a 1 bedroom apartment so I don't need one with a whole lot of range.
Cons: Trouble Initializing out of the box
Instructions say power on Router first then Modem. After 5 minutes still no internet.
Solution - Power the Modem on First then the Router. Connect to the router through the browser. A page came up with the wireless SSID and password, Hit the connect to internet button on that page. Now connected.
Other Thoughts: Upgrade firmware to Tomato, After router reset could not log in to tomato. Do a 30-30-30 reset. Now able to log in. Follow Tomato setup instructions. You will need to save each page as you go through it. It wont save everything at the end.
After upgrading my modem it became necessary to upgrade my router. Had a Linksys WRT54g router that was 10/00. Been using it for 4 years without any problems. Hope this last as long
