Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs AWESOME 08/15/2013

This review is from: Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker

Pros: BOSE Sound that pretty much says it all I think. This is one of those times when you should buy a name brand.

Cons: ???

Other Thoughts: nice and heavy aux in

Seagate NAS HDD ST2000VN000 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Specs look good... 2T, 64MB Cache and SATA 6 but only time will tell if this drive is actually any good. So far its quick and quiet.

Cons: Price is slightly higher than other 2T drives

Other Thoughts: I'm not going to repeat what everyone has written so far. In my opinion, when it comes to HDDs you stick with the brand you like and have had good experience with. For me its Seagate, I've never had one prematurely fail on me since I started using them ~10yrs ago.
Eggxpert Reviewers are only given one of this to test so I do not have it running in the environment that's it was intended for, therefore, I cannot test its true purpose. But its doing its job so far. Two thumbs and five eggs up!

TRENDnet TEW-812DRU V2 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router - 4 Gigabit port, DD-WRT Open Source support
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Comes with a CAT 5E cable and an actual CD which seems pretty rare these days.
I transferred 4.02gigs & timed it against my existing ASUS RT-N16 while streaming Netflix between the host Pc and the other devices. The hard wired test were pretty equal, however the wifi speeds doubled. I did it at a 2 foot distance and again at 20 feet with no drop in the transfer rates.
Plug it in and it works out of the box. However you need to set it up to your needs. A total newb could set this up.

Cons: No external antennas
USB 2.0 is slow for a network connected storage drive.

Other Thoughts: This would be a great a device if it had USB 3.0 or Firewire if you wish to have all of your media files always connected on a network. The USB 2.0 is just way to slow.
I didn't verify the latest firmware version but it was definitely of a recent date.
