This review is from: NETGEAR EX2700 N300 WiFi Range Extender Essentials Edition
Pros: Convenient little all-in-one package
extremely easy set up
extra LAN port for receiver connection
Cons: Will not stay connected for extended periods
Constantly having to reset
poor area coverage
no way to boost signal further ie: increase transmit signal.
Other Thoughts: I'm not one that likes constantly playing with my equipment once it is set up. I get enough of that at work. This seems like it would definitely be made more so for the average end user and I could not advise them to buy this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This thing is huge, keeps a socket 2011 - 3930k extremely cool even overclocked and running video conversions. Very nice looking. Quiet, even under load. I noticed +10 Degree lower temps during video conversions lasting over an hour. Easy installation. I already had a blue theme so worked very nicely in my setup. Gaming wouldn't even challenge this. Worth every cent!
Cons: A bit too big for the average setup.
Other Thoughts: Make sure this will fit. If it will it will outperform many other CPU coolers... maybe all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 5TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT5000100
Pros: Massive storage. Easy to set up. Plug and play. Looks good aesthetically. Fast as expected with USB 3.0. Very quiet, as in I couldn't hear it running. Cords are plenty long even with routing. 2 year warranty shows confidence from the manufacturer. Lack of super bright lights!!
I have used this strictly as an external with both Windows and Linux. I did not use their software for the Windows install, but used the native backup software I use for each and this worked flawlessly. Speeds held up to expected USB 3.0. I have yet to figure out how I'm going to fill this up even with backing up my laptop, my desktop and my server.
Cons: A power switch would have been handy, but being this is meant to be a continuous backup device I can understand. Still you could have anticipated not everyone would use it this way.
I plugged this directly into my server and the drive laughed at me. I mean yes I only have USB 2.0 on the server, but it is a bit older and I thought this was rude :)
Other Thoughts: I am not a fan of device specific software so I have not tried the Seagate software. The server does not have native USB 3.0 so I Used it over the network; it still maintained great speeds.
Unfortunately I did not have a Mac to try this with.
