Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Fast modem 09/12/2016

This review is from: Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem

Pros: This is an extremely fast router with 24 download channels and 8 upload channels. I have this modem running with the Comcast Blast subscription plan.

No calls are required to setup with Comcast. Attach the modem to your router, restart your computer, start your internet program and open a web page. Follow the web instructions and you’re all set. It really is amazing how simple it has become to change modems these days. No phone calls and everything is on line now.

I upgraded from a Surfboard SB6141 modem with 8 download and 4 upload channels and have seen quite a dramatic speed increase and response from our iPhones and iPad wirelessly from our TP-Link AC2600 router.

Using between Denver and LA I was able to achieve the following score;
Ping: 43ms
Download: 122.19 Mbps
Upload: 12.10 Mbps

Cons: The modem is pretty basic looking, not the best looking and rather large compared to the Surfboard. However it’s a peripheral you can tuck away behind the monitor and never see it.

Other Thoughts: It’s big and fast. Well worth the money if you are currently renting, and better if you have an access plan that supports the additional speed the modem can offer.

Rosewill RLFL-13006 - Cree XML-U2 LED Flashlight Set with Samsung 18650 Li-ion Rechargeable - 1000 Lumens Battery Titanium Bronze
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Holycow this is the brightest flashlight I have ever seen. I took it to work on my daughters TV and it was so blindingly bright up close I had to use her regular flashlight! Comes with a charger, case, clip and an extra rubber cap for the charging hole (that you will loose eventually so a nice touch)

Cons: Too bright for close up work, but amazingly bright for general lighting of an area.

Other Thoughts: If you need super bright, this is it! Recommended.

WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The 6.0TB kit, with 2 Red 3.0TB drives spinning at 5400 RPM is quite a pair in a raid 0 configuration. The models included are WD30EFRX with 64MB cache.

I have these installed in a Vantec NexStar MX raid enclosure connected to my Asus motherboard via the PCIe x1 slot with a Media Sonic Pro eSATA III board. They run 24x7 as a backup to my MS Server 2012R2 Essentials home server.
The setup is very cool and extremely quiet. I need to put my ear right up to the case to hear any hum. Very nice indeed.

To check the throughput via the Media Sonic eSATA board I used HD Tune Pro 5. Throughput measured 23MB/s maximum and 187MB average for READ. Far from what you would see on the MB raid controller, however this is very respectable for the enclosure/eSata card combination. I am very pleased.

Cons: After using this setup for nearly a month now I could only wish the drives spun at 7200 rpm. But then maybe more heat and noise would be generated. 5400RPM seems fine though in raid.

Other Thoughts: Perfect in every way for what they were designed for. Cool, quiet and fast. No issues after nearly 30 days running 24x7. Excellent drives if you are looking for true NASware drives.
