ASUS RT-N16 Wireless Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps DD-WRT Open Source support with USB Storage, Printer And Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have purchased and set up 5 of these routers. The only time I have had a locked up router was when one was running DD-WRT. I strongly suggest getting the Merlin modified ASUS-WRT firmware. It has many features and is extremely stable.

I also like to take advantage of the AiHome features and access my internal network while I'm away from home.

Cons: Asus has newer models that have all the same features plus better hardware and wireless standards and speeds. This model is still a little pricey for being outdated.

Other Thoughts: Get the Merlin custom firmware.

2 out of 5 eggs Don't Play Russian Roulette With These Drives 06/13/2013

This review is from: WD Red 3TB NAS Desktop Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX

Pros: 3 of my drives came and are working... so far. I wrote a previous review stating that they were excellent. Now I'm not sure how long they will last.

Cons: 4th drive came DOA. NewEgg/WD still have not solved whatever the problem is with these drives. So many owners getting bad drives. Now both NewEgg and WD want me to pay to get the working drive I paid for in the first place.

Stay away from these drives, just don't even chance it. I want to get rid of my other ones now because I can't trust them.

Goodbye Western Digital, you have lost my trust.

Other Thoughts: Just don't. Look at other drives with better owner reviews.

ICY DOCK MB455SPF-B 5 in 3 SATA I, II & III Hot-Swap Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: An excellent way to add hot-swappable storage to a system.

I installed two of these in my home/business server.

Relatively easy to replace fans.

Good ventilation. LED's are not obnoxious.

Cons: I was pretty scared by other reviews on this product, but I took precautions. I installed my own shielding in the back of the unit to prevent any electrical components from touching any installed drives.

I also removed the stock fans and installed some SilenX ones with high CFM ratings. This required some crimping and soldering to achieve, but I suck at soldering and was able to do it so I am pretty sure anyone can if they need to.

The screw holes looked like they were drilled wrong, as I could only get one set to line up with the mounts in my case. This was on both units.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying this product, take precautions against the issues others have reported. Shield the inside back panel, and get yourself some reliable fans.

Otherwise, a great product.
