Nippon Labs SATA Adpater Molex 4-Pin PC power cable to 2 x SATA Converter Cables for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model POW-SATA-2

Pros: Takes one and makes it two...haha. Running two 1.5 TB drives in a Raid 1, not issues with power at all. (both are green drives)

Cons: none

Overall Review: i recomment, quick fix to the problem.

If you follow the instructions, it works like a charm

Pros: The flexibility of being able to put this pretty much anywhere in the house is a huge Pro...I have even teamed this up with a set of power line adapters so that I did not have to run network cable to where the HD antenna feed comes in the house. I highly recommend this product (and the rest of the homerun tunners) to anyone and everyone trying to get rid of their cable bill. When purchasing this device, make sure you do read up on what this is capable of and purchase any necessary equipment needed. Trying to purchase the equipment in pieces will lead to frustrations. I have seen lots of complaints with DVRing...this is not a DVR, but will work with DVR software that is install on a PC (see the specifications tab) ...the PC is where the files will be saved, not to this little box. I have seen complaints about windows 10...I upgraded as soon as I could to Win10 and have not had any problems using the tuner on a Win10 machine. I primarily use this for viewing on an AppleTV Gen4, HTPC with Win7, my PS3, my macbook or my Win10 machine depending on what room I am in. This device seems to get a better signal than when the HD antenna was plugged directly into the TV. My HTPC does all the DVRing. Shows, movies, or sports that get DVR'ed are in great quality whether I watch it on the HTPC or anyone of the other devices I listed above. WiFi is where I have noticed problems, especially if I am not in the room with the WiFi router or the Access Point. My MacBook is the only WiFi device, but I know where my "sweet spots" are in the house and if I need to use WiFi, thats where I go and usually have no problems. So it will be trial in error on the users part, each house is built differently. I have not tried to install any apps on my iPads or smart phones to view TV on them, so I can not comment from that end.

Cons: I think the instructions that come in the box are only ok...I think of myself as an above average techy personal (lol), but think that the average personal can figure out this device pretty quick. Dont be afraid to google this product and watch the videos. Many people have figured out the tricks and tips for these devices. I actually recommend watching them before you even purchase this device to help you get a better understanding of what this device can do.

Overall Review: Take your time researching this device or any of the other homerun devices. These are a very powerful tool when installed correctly. I will say there is more leg work than it seems to set this device up, especially if you do not have a whole house wired network. If you have a house that is already wired for cat5e or cat6...you are golden and setup time will not be as long. If your house is not, take the time to plan out...it will save you tons of frustrations. Like I talked about above, you most likely will need to purchase additional equipment long with this device to make sure you are getting the full benefit of this device.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin PC RAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: Very cheap for 8GB. Big corsair fan, so no brainer to get their memory. Corsair has really built up a name for quaility products

Cons: 8GB sticks arent this cheap yet

Overall Review: I bought this when it was 35 with the idea of using it as a virtual drive. So no issues, cant wait for 8GB sticks to come down in price so i can make a bigger one
