This review is from: Linksys EA4500 App Enabled N900 Dual-Band Wireless Router with Gigabit and USB
Cons: Requires CD software installation to even use this router
Immediately starts online account setup via linksys for management.
Other Thoughts: I refuse to use ANY router that requires software installation to even get in the thing.
I should be able to cable to a switch port and connect via my favorite browser to whatever subnet the router has given me: 192.168.x.1 and start configuring. In all my years this is the first I have EVER seen just worthless out of the box. Sorry but this is a MAJOR FAIL. I will not even waste my time to go further. I am not interested in having more bloatware clogging up my PC. It is unnecessary.
This router goes in the trash.
Get something else.
Pros: They are fast when they work
Cons: Failed one year after purchase in a high end i7 gaming PC
Other Thoughts: This is the last OCZ product I will ever purchase.
This company has been plagued with technical and financial issues and I no longer have the desire to pay to be a BETA tester for OCZ
This in not the first OCZ SSD I have had to fail but it will be the last.
This review is from: ARK 4U406 Black 1.0mm thick 4U Rackmount Server Chassis 2 External 5.25" Drive Bays
This got me an affordable rack case for my GNS3/Cisco lab
It is a good size for my desktop 12u rack. I have other rack cases that are too deep and hold 15 drives.
This is a nice size without being overwhelming.
Construction is sturdy. The case body and handles are solid metal and do not flex.
By far my BIGGEST complaint is the noise from the fans. I sit in a small office full of computer systems and electronics and this thing overwhelms all of them. This is classic high pitch server room WHIR. I wish the case had more standard 80mm fans instead of the dual 60mm ones in the back. The front being 120mm is easy to replace with a quiet one.
Motherboard mounting standoffs do not fit properly so I had to use my DeWalt drill and some sockets to force a post in the case. Not a huge issue for me but inconvenient.
Other Thoughts: If you need a quiet case case, this is NOT for you. I will likely not purchase another one because I will need to spend $30 more to replace the fans now. Really this case was not a good deal because of the extra expense so I can stay in a room with it.
The USB ports are upside down so my 2 Logitech nano receivers are as well. Minor.
The protecting paper on the smoked plexiglass door is still on the inside of the door. I suppose this offers both shipping protection and could be left on to block the light from the very bright green and red LED's.
