BUFFALO LinkStation 420 2 TB 2-Drive (2 x 1 TB) High Performance RAID NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server - LS420D0202
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: No problem to set up. Two TB of shared drive.

Cons: I've heard setting it up for outside access on a U-verse router is difficult.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews I read on another popular website complained about difficulties making it work with a U-verse router and that worried me. But all those problems rose from trying to set it up to be a private file server accessed from outside the home network. All we wanted was a shared drive everyone in the house could access. If we want access from outside, we'll spring for something a little more expensive. We wanted a nice fast central storage setup for the local network at a reasonable cost. We got it. We like it.

EVGA 896-P3-1171-AR GeForce GTX 275 Superclocked Edition 896MB 448-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy install. Fast. Really fast. Did I mention it was fast?

Cons: Huge. Looks like a fancy two-by-four stuck to my motherboard. Calling it a "card" is a little ludicrous. It's an inch and a half thick and almost a foot long. Hope you don't need the second slot it's going to cover up. You might have to take it out to remove and install any hard drives.

Other Thoughts: I play Lord of the Rings Online. I've got all the graphic settings maxed and nothing phases this thing. Zero lag, beautiful detail. Frame rate around 100. I haven't gone on any large raids yet but been in a lot of complicated combat. My other graphics programs work better too but I'm extremely impressed at how well this thing handles LOTRO.

AMD Phenom Quad 2.5Ghz on an ASUS M4N72-E motherboard and a Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W power supply. They all seem to work and play very well together. I went with an older chip and board to save money, got the cheapest dependable power supply I could find over 500W, and sort of went a little crazy with this. But man, does this thing scream.
