QNAP TS-431 4-Bay Personal Cloud NAS Diskless System with DLNA, PLEX Support
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: easy interface, good support docs, quiet fan, able to add disks to raid as you go

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: 4 x 4TB HGST Deskstar NAS RAID 5 (10.91TB formatted in ext4)
took 40 hours to migrate from 3 disk to 4 for RAID 5
doubling the RAM to 1GB would really make a big difference, writing large files(>1GB) is ~55MB/s, albeit RAID 5 is notorious for low speeds over network

AMD FirePro W4100 100-505979 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Workstation Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: very quick in GIMP
quiet (i've only ever heard the fan when stress testing and that wasn't until 74C)
overclocks well using msi afterburner
amd transcoding app is useful for low quality videos for phone
10-bit color is beautiful on 1440p IPS

Cons: still pricey just to get 10-bit color
no ECC
no GeometryBoost

Other Thoughts: Silverstone PS07
Mushkin 997043S 8GB DDR3-1600 8-8-8-24 1.35V
W4100 715/1000 with 120% power limit

SanDisk Ultra Plus SDSSDHP-128G-G25 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The best value in SSD I have found yet. I've used the Crucial M500s and they have been great, but this drive has wowed me for the price. I purcahsed it as a shell shocker for only $75 and free shipping.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: CrystalDiskMark x64
