Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Decent price for an average size HDD

Cons: - Click of death within a month of using it

Other Thoughts: After reading the Backblaze report on HDD lifespans, my relatively poor history with Seagate drives and relatively good history with other brands, I find it hard to justify purchasing Seagate anymore. Too risky.

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-650AP Wireless N150 18 dBm Access Point, WDS, Repeater and AP Client Bridge

Pros: - Solid price point for a wireless N router
- Disabling WPS for security reasons actually does work (some routers don't actually disable WPS when you tell it to)
- Decent feature list

Cons: - Drops wireless connections infrequently but reliably
- No ethernet switch built in

Other Thoughts: We've had it for a business for over a year now, and it's on it's way to being replaced. We regularly have about ~15-20 laptops and phones on it, connections are dropping daily, if only temporarily.

Lately it has been requiring a reboot to allow users to connect again. We got about a year of decent use out of it. Will probably replace with a better AP that can run DD-WRT or Tomato.
