Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Working nicely in my FreeNAS setup 04/02/2014

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Not much to say... I've got 2x of them in a ZFS mirror on my FreeNAS server and it's working perfectly.

Cons: None

Rosewill 80mm Computer Case Fan (Case Cooling Fan) - Black Frame & Red Fan Blades, 2-Ball Bearing, Silent Fan with Rotation Speed Controller; RFX-80
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice middle-of-the-road fan. It isn't totally silent, but it also isn't unbearably noisy. It blows a decent amount of air. It works exactly as advertised.

The included fan controller and protective grill is what makes it worth it - that alone would cost more than the fan to buy separately.

The red fins look nice, and it feels solid and well made.

Cons: On one of the fans I received, the plastic around the fan cable was damaged when the assembler who made it shoved the cable into the little plastic "slot" in the side of the fan. The other two fans I bought didn't have that issue, so I think it was just a quality control issue. In any case, it didn't prevent the fan from working properly. I just wrapped some electrical tape around it.

EnGenius N-EAP350 KIT Indoor Wireless-N Access Point with Gigabit PoE Injector
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Well, one of mine just started failing 04/02/2014

This review is from: EnGenius N-EAP350 KIT Indoor Wireless-N Access Point with Gigabit PoE Injector

Pros: I've installed about 10 of these so far in various client sites. The devices have good range (when installed correctly, ceiling or wall mounted). It supports PoE, 802.11q VLAN tagging, multiple SSIDs, and it supposed installing several of them in the same area with the same SSID and laptops seamlessly roam from one to the other.

Overall, this is my "go-to" access point for small business installations with <20 devices. They have always been very reliable

Cons: ... until now. The first one I bought about 2.5 years ago has now started flaking out. The device boots and appears to work, but wifi connections just drop and fail, high pingtimes, and generally data just doesn't seem to go through. I did all the regular troubleshooting, it's the Engenius device itself causing the issue.

Replaced it with another identically configured EAP350 and everything's working fine again. So it was definitely this particular device that was defective.

That seriously makes me reconsider installing these in the future. I'm imagining a client who has 3x of these installed on premises and one of them is flaking out... they'll have nonstop intermittent and impossible to diagnose WiFi issues for YEARS before they figure it out.

Also... this thing is running on 802.11 draft N. It doesn't have dual radios and it doesn't do 5.4ghz. With 802.11ac coming out this thing is starting to feel pretty old.

Other Thoughts: Engenius's warranty policy is awful. It's a 1 year warranty (so mine is out of warranty anyways), but their RMA policy consists of a manual form you fill out and fax in. There is no automated serial number checking, and they require the actual original receipt of purchase. Don't have it? Tough luck. You also have to agree to pay $55 + return shipping if they "can't find any fault with the device". And you have to give them a credit card number when you submit the RMA!

So... that means intermittent issues like mine could very well turn into wasting $55 + shipping BOTH directions if Engenius's RMA dept is incompetent and fails to find the issue I'm experiencing.

No thanks, i'd rather just buy something else from now on.
