NETGEAR A6200-100NAS Dual Band Wi-Fi Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300/867Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Based on my investigation and research I am going to ask
MiddletownBill Who posted the first post, What Version of the R6300 Router do you own, v1 or v2. I have heard that these 6200 a/c/ client adapters just scream on the R6300 v2 routers however the v1 not so efficient. I am currently running a R6300 v2 with DD-WRT installed and running the A6200 a/c client WiFi adapter just fine in a 2 story condo and no dropped connections or slowdowns.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: This is one of the most awesome Networking pieces of hardware to date between the 6300 v2 and the 6200 client adapter What a combo. It however is not for the faint hearted a bit of Networking experience is required to tweak this hardware properly and end up with a kick but Network.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I see alot of users in here posting that under Windows XP you can not use more than 2 TB on a USB cage or a PCI-e Drive Controller, If you use Disk Management and format the drive as GPT (Guid Partition Table) otherwise known in the Apple side of the house until the larger drives were made available for PC's you will be able to have a single partition full size drive weather it be a 3 TB or 4TB. As long as your using XP SP-3 or higher or Windows 7 SP-1 or higher. and of course Mountain Lion or Lion all Work fine

Cons: None
Before posting that you cant use this drive in a USB cage or Dock or 3rd party controller Prove it and read up on what you are claiming. I know this from actually trying a large drive on an XP Machine SP-3 with the most current windows Updates doing like I suggested above works

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Pound for Price you cant beat it, I just wish they would finally roll out the 6 TB drives so that these 4 TB's models would upgrade to 7200 Rpm and 128 Mb Cache. Otherwise I bought 2 of these to use as a direct file to file NAS Backup destination. Works very well for that, a bit slow but accurate as hell, Zero errors.

Cons: Slow, and if you Raid these drives on a 6 Gbps Marvell Motherboard Drive controller they are displayed as a USB Raid Array, which I thought was a bit odd.

Other Thoughts: If your looking for performance I would go with the Hitachi 3 TB Enterprise drive I found them at Server Supply for $175.00 incl tax and shipping. I ordered 6 to upgrade my NAS from 2 TB x 5 to 3TB x 6 they are 6Gbps
Sata III designed especially for NAS applications. otherwise if your looking for a cheap way out of a sticky situation and dont mind waiting this 4 TB Desktop model that runs at 5900 Rpm is just fine.
