NETGEAR CM500-100NAS DOCSIS 3.0 High Speed Cable Modem -  Certified for Comcast XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Charter & More
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great reviews, Netgear is a decent company with good products, Time Warner managed to activate it first time in less than 10 minutes.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Replaced an Arris DG1670A from Time Warner, whose greed seems to know no bounds.

When I first got the Arris from them, it was $5/mo. Six months later, it went to $8/mo.

Then they informed me that since I was using the WiFi feature of the modem, that would be an ADDITIONAL $5/mo, at which point I'd had enough.

This modem went on sale that same day for $80, and I bought it. I would have bought it at the normal $100 price, too, based on many reviews.

While looking around for a decent wireless router, I found this incredible T-Mobile deal for their customers on a rebranded top of the line ASUS router. If you're on T-Mobile, check it out.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E500B/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Very fast drive; hey, it's a Samsung! 07/31/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E500B/AM 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Samsung quality, reliability, warranty. Very fast drive.

Cons: None that I can see at the moment. This is my fourth or fifth Samsung SSD, and they seem to understand how to make these things. See Other Thoughts, below.

Other Thoughts: Installed in a MacBook Pro early 2011 running dual boot Bootcamp Win7 with OSX.

Be aware that Apple purposely cripples the Bootcamp setup so that Windows 7 will NOT enable AHCI support - you're running in IDE mode at half speed so that everything seems faster on the OSX side: 250 Mb/s read/write on Win7, 500-550 read/write with an OSX boot. Yes, I know there are ways to hack around this, but the price of potential instability and no sleep mode when you close the cover is too high to pay for me. When I need fast disk I/O, like running Adobe CC for uncompressed video editing, I boot into OSX.

You just can't go wrong buying a Samsung SSD.

Netgear GS108-400NAS ProSAFE GS108 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs It, ummm, just works. 07/31/2015

This review is from: Netgear GS108-400NAS ProSAFE GS108 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch

Pros: Small, light, plug it in, it works. What more do you want from an inexpensive unmanaged switch?

Cons: I'm not thrilled with having the lights and cables on the same side of the device. I prefer the lights in front and connections in back, but this is really a pretty minor quibble.

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive, lifetime warranty, works as intended. If you need something like this, this one is a good choice.

Will wait and see if rebate is actually paid.
