StarTech SAT3510BU3 Aluminum / Plastic 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very, very nice case. Look very professional, classy, and expensive. Brushed aluminum exterior. Very solid feel. Very easy to work on. Only 2 screws to open. 3.5" Drive slides into SATA connector and locks down with tool-less latch. Fan is quiet and switched.

Cons: None really. Minor nit-pick. While the manual does explain a lot about setting up/formatting drive from windows (which for a lot of folks could be a large stumbling block, so kudos there), it's a bit light on actual physical installation of hard drive. I put in a 3.5" drive and had no problems, but the I'm not 100% sure how a laptop or SSD would be secured with the tool-less design. They mention it a sentence, but a picture would be worth a 1000 words here.

It's designed to stand tall, and is fairly stable that way, but I still worry about it tipping or rocking in my application. I laid mine flat, so they could have provided feet for that orientation.

NETGEAR WNDR3800-100NAR N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router - Premium Edition Manufacturer Recertified IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Price. Set up was a snap, even though it took me a bit longer as I was replacing an older (much older) D-Link and wanted to maintain various settings. Using stock Netgear firmware so far, which allowed update to latest firmware with no problems encountered. Knowing I've access to multiple open source router solutions is a plus. Integrated OpenDNS option for parental control a definite plus.

I was looking for a router with gigabit wired connectivity to remove bottlenecks in the wired network, especially towards the cable modem. Wow, I am not disappointed. There was an increase of 1.5-2 Mbps download and upload to the net. Whether it's the 1 Gbps link to the modem or faster processing in the router, it's a good thing.

Cons: Well, it's refurbished. Which I'll be watching it like a hawk. I've no problem with refurbs, heck the 7 year old D-Link it replaced was refurb and it rarely gave me problems. So here's hoping for another 7+ years.

The fact that it is a refurb means the serial number on the unit has been removed. So you only get a 30 day hardware and 30 day free email tech support. However, with the unit priced as it was, I got Newegg's 1 year refurb warranty and it was still cheaper than anything else I could find.

If I had to pick on anything, it's the 5e patch cable provided with the unit. It was so tightly bundled up and twist tied together that I think the kinks will never straighten out. And it's a wee bit short for my setup. No biggie.

Other Thoughts: Newegg rocks!
