NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: They still turn on...usually.

Cons: 2 of 2 units purchased have failed in a devastating fashion after less than a year of use. DD-WRT/3rd Party firmware "compatibility" is highly dependent on what revision of firmware and hardware you have. Flash from the wrong base firmware version and your 3500L is bricked and must be restored via TFTP. Occasionally 1 of 2 units will re-enable it's DHCP server, causing the whole network to go down.

The second unit randomly broadcasts packets to the network, causing packet flooding and STP issues.

Other Thoughts: Would not recomend.

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect for firewall/appliance 09/08/2011

This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5016I-MR 1U Rackmount Server Barebone LGA 1156 Intel 3400 DDR3 1333/1066/800

Pros: Great price/form factor for low profile server needs. See "other thoughts for details."

Cons: Hard drive mounting is a little wonky. Not enough of a complaint to remove an egg.

Other Thoughts: Have this box loaded with a low TDP Xeon L3426, 4GB of Kingston ECC ram, a dynatron CPU cooler, and an Intel 80GB SSD running an Untangle firewall. Superb performance, not a single issue under load.

Would be more excellent if riser card supported 2 PCIe cards, like Dell or HP 1RU servers. But it is a half length chassis, so not a real problem.

Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1333 Server Memory Model KVR1333D3E9SK2/4G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: works great in Supermicro X8SIL mobo / 5016I-MR barebones server. Works as advertised, no memory related issues whatsoever.

Cons: doesn't install itself.

Other Thoughts: I have used this kingston part number in a dozen or so Supermicro X8SIL based boxes and it has always worked perfectly the first time. Great choice for a dual memory channel/socket 1156 server.
