Orico 6518US3-BK USB 3.0 2.5/3.5 SATA Hard Drive Dock Station
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Orico 6518US3-BK USB 3.0 2.5/3.5 SATA Hard Drive Dock Station 01/19/2015

This review is from: Orico 6518US3-BK USB 3.0 2.5/3.5 SATA Hard Drive Dock Station

Pros: Well built which was a surprise. Works great the best I can tell. Tested it with sata 1,2,and 3 hdds. 3.5/2.5 and no issues. If you are a backyard pc'er who had to fix his family and friends pc's or recover data, this will work.

Cons: none yet. will update if necessary.

HighPoint RocketRAID 640 PCI-Express 2.0 x4 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This will work out of the box. It does work well with my 4 Seagate 3Tb HDD's. However.....see cons.

Cons: My home server contains 12 HDD's. You can not in any way run more than one card (I attempted to flash bios and disable functions per Highpoints instructions) which failed. You will get "Out of Memory" error. The work around is to Press "End" key every time you start or restart the computer/home server. "End", thats just unaccaptable, and to further that Highpoints "support" was like the "End" key.

Other Thoughts: If you dont need more than 4 HDD's this card will work as advertised. It is fast with the SATA3 HDD's. You could use the expander, but that drops your SATA3 speed to SATA2. That too is like the "End" key solution. Unacceptable. As I mentioned, I did contact Highpoint.

ZyXEL NBG5715 Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless N900 Media Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I officially jumped ship from Linksys/Cisco! This router is the bomb! I only use the wireless for laptop/cell phone/ tablet ect, and I have yet to lose any signal strength that interfers with the internet. As with any router transfering files wirelessly is a pain. The wired portion which is attached to a Zyxel 16 port gig switch, I average approximatly 90mbs! On really good days 105mbs! The bad days approximatly 60mbs. If you want a reliable router this is it! The set up was pretty straight foward but I did upgrade the firmware which did take out some of the bugs.

Cons: humm...I am just being picky now. Yes, the original firm ware had some annoying bugs like not displaying the entire menu and forceing you to reload the page to get it to display right. Changing the time zone/state just doesnt work on either firmware or is not supported. You cant permanantly turn off a radio. I dont use the 5g band. I turn it off and it stays off until the router recycles itself (Which is actually not a con) so you just have to deal with it. I have had this router which I purchased from NewEgg for approximatly 10 months and these are my only cons.

Other Thoughts: I now recommend this router to all my family and friends when asked what they should get. Its got great range. I have aluminum roofing and I still can get out of the house and get a good signal, not great but good enough that it doesnt affect my internet speed. So if you do want a change from your old router, this will not disappoint you.
