Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD1 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast and small, system performance is noticeably higher than a mechanical drive.

Cons: I used TrueImage to copy the hard drive on my personal desktop to this drive. I've done this hundreds of times (I have my own IT business). My computer (Windows 7 x64, 16GB RAM) is very solid; it almost never crashes. The SSD drive was noticeably faster than my mechanical drive. But within a few hours I experienced weird behavior: within three days my computer blue-screened twice. Explorer began crashing regularly. One of my VMWare machines crashed. The last straw was today when I woke up to a black screen; had to power cycle the computer to get it running. The only difference was this drive. Keep in mind that I have done the same thing with mechanical drives on the same machine without these problems.

Other Thoughts: I'm very disappointed; I had hoped that I could get higher system performance and better reliability for me and my customers by switching to an SSD.

But this experience has shown that this particular SSD is not ready for prime time. An SSD should behave exactly the same as a mechanical drive. I'm happy with NewEgg for allowing me to return the drive for store credit.

TRENDnet TE100-MFP1 1-Port Multi-Function USB Print Server RJ45 USB 2.0
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Not a real print server! 04/16/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TE100-MFP1 1-Port Multi-Function USB Print Server RJ45 USB 2.0

Pros: It works (as long as you are logged-in and are running the USB Control Center Utility).

Cons: This is not a real print server, it's just a USB extender! To make your USB printer networked you must have the TrendNet USB Control Center Utility running. This utility does NOT run as a service so you must be logged-in for it to work. Also, you must install this utility on EVERY computer where you want to install the printer. What a piece of garbage! I'm in IT and have used lots of print servers: you should be able to set-up a print server using a standard TCP/IP port with no additional software and no special utilities.

Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great router when loaded with Tomato. Very easy to program. Excellent range when the wireless power is tweaked. Can be programmed as a range booster when linked with another WRT54GL.

Cons: The 12V/1A power adapters are under-powered. See 'other thoughts'. Also, the case is cheap plastic and there are no holes for wall mounting.

Other Thoughts: I have sold at least 200 of these routers which work great with Tomato firmware. Tweaking the wireless power from the default value to 150 significantly increases range.

Over the past 7 months I've had two units that have been resetting intermittently. Replacing the 1-amp power adapter with a 1.5-amp adapter seems to have fixed the problem. Yes, I know that tweaking the power voids the warranty and stresses the power adapter but there have been no issues until recently.
