Intel PWLA8391GT Desktop Adapter PRO/1000 GT 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great Card for a good price
Stable performance
Extremely Fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used this card to replace my on board NIC in my ESXi server since ESXi 6.0 no longer works with the on board chipset. I had the old drivers injected by they where stuck at half duplex and 10 Mbps limiting my virtual server traffic. After installing this NIC my card jumped up to 1000 Mbps and now I am able to copy gigabytes of data around in just a few minutes instead of hours.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good price for 500 GB SSD I got this for 200 bucks which is less then 50 cents a GB. My NAS disk cost more than that.

Extremely fast

Stable even on Windows 10

Cons: The only con I have is that it wouldn't work on a windows 7 install with the disk attached to my raid controller while I was running in a raid configuration. Windows wouldn't see it during install even though the bios reported it correctly. My 840 Pro would work in that configuration so not sure why this one would not.

Other Thoughts: I installed this as my main SSD and moved my 840 Pro into my laptop. Other than having to move this to my secondary SATA controller which has less performance than my main one I am pretty happy with this purchase. On the secondary controller it performs slightly under benchmarks but I could get to work on the main if I wanted to break my RAID drive.

WD Red 4TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD40EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great Price for the space provided at the 220 dollars I spent that is about 50 cents a gigabyte.

Extremely quiet and cool running.

Decent throughput for what I am using it for

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: I'm using this as NAS disk for my VMWare servers. I'm running ESXi 6.0 and I have all of my virtual servers running from this disk. The main goal was to pack a lot of space into my virtual streaming server for watching movies on any TV in the house. This has done that very well. The VMWare server sits in a closet and generates very little heat and noise. I would like to pick up at least 3 more of these and put them together in a RAID 5 configuration but for that I will need a new motherboard first.
