Seagate Central STCG2000100 2TB Cloud Storage System
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Update: Failed After 18 Months 01/23/2015

This review is from: Seagate Central STCG2000100 2TB Cloud Storage System

Pros: Worked for a while with very light use..

Cons: After about 18 months it stopped working; no longer recognised on our home network and indicator light blinks to show it's booting but hasn't yet come online .....

Seagate tech support email offered 3 methods to "reset" the unit, but they all failed (after trying each method twice).

Other Thoughts: Think i'll dismantle the case and inspect it inside. Very curious as to whether the drive itself failed or if it's the control circuitry that died ....

TP-LINK Archer C9 Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router

5 out of 5 eggs Quick follow up 01/15/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK Archer C9 Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router

Pros: On a forum several users complained that a another similar TP-Link router (model C8) would intermittently drop the Wi-fi connection to his computers whenever he connected an external hard drive to the USB 3.0 port.

We decided to check if that would happen with the new C9 model. So, plugged in a WD My Passport Ultra 2TB portable hard drive. We did it while we were streaming HD video from Youtube to 2 wired PCs, 1 Wi-fi PC, 1 Wi-fi laptop and 1 Wi-fi iPad Mini. Happy to report there were no slowdowns or freezes or lost Wi-fi connections. Everything played smoothly for an extended period. For the record, the C9's USB 2.0 port is also in use with our printer connected to it. Again, no problems.

Cons: Basic setup instructions should include setting of wireless security, but TP-Link makes no mention of that until page 39 of the full user manual.

Other Thoughts: n/a

TRENDnet TEW-712BR N150 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Inexpensive to Use as a Wi-fi Booster 01/14/2015

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-712BR N150 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: When on sale it's a very inexpensive way to boost the Wi-fi signal in a low reception area of your house or out on the deck/patio. Set it up as an Access Point (A/P) to give stronger Wi-fi signal.

Cons: Cheaply made; doesn't have a ton of good reviews.

Other Thoughts: 3 ways you could connect this little router as a Wi-fi repeater:

Plug it into an ethernet jack on the wall in or near a low-reception zone.

Plug it into an ethernet jack on a Powerline adapter near the low-reception zone.

Position it where it receives a reasonable Wi-fi signal from your main router so it can boost the Wi-fi another 15 or 20 feet away.
