AirPort Extreme Base Station
Pros: - Great and reliable Wireless - Makes Apples work on the wireless
Cons: - Price is high, but it works great
Overall Review: The signal quality on this device is such that an apple device will work on your network - not sure why, but Macs hate Linksys routers and love this one. It solved a lot of Mac Dropped network issues for us.
NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Pros: - You need 5 of these in your inventory at all times
Cons: - None
Overall Review: - this is the quick and dirty switch that is everywhere solving network sprawl drop shortages. If you buy 5 you will have 1 left and need more bu the end on the year. The tend to find a use for themselves pretty quickly.
Kingston 16GB DataTraveler
Pros: - Big Enough for Server Crash Stuff
Cons: - None
Overall Review: - I use these on the backs of my systems to hold a copy of the OS ISO and all of the install drivers - that way I can always recover the server through the iLo if necessary. They work find and since they are metal they don't look like cheesy plastic junk attached to your hardware.
Restocking Fee still in Limbo - I had no say in the shipping and it never arrived.
So somehow this package never ended up at my door, which I don't blame the sender for as the the address on the order looked correct. Wherever it did get delivered to said they did not order it and didn't need it so it was sent back. this happened in a 4 hour period without my knowledge and by the time I went to correct it the package was on the way back to the seller . . . So in about 8 hours they have issued a credit for $50 less then what I Paid So I call NewEgg and they emailed the seller and CCed me in then absolutely nothing. not a word until I get an email asking me if my experience was good. I'm going with no - it cost me $50, I didn't get what I ordered and now I guess I have to wait on the phone to find out that they want to keep my money at which point I will lose my cool and freak out until eventually they give me MY my money simply so I stop freaking out.
