Great little item

Pros: Easy, nice looking, drop in replacement. Everything was included.

Cons: Feels like a $250 box, not a $1000 box. Difficult to figure out model number to get correct one. Difficult to figure out what you will get.

Overall Review: The TR4X+B is set up on an HP 2003 SBS server with a P411 SAS card running HP ACU (Array Configuration Utility). I put in 4 WD Green 1.5TB, and set up 2 singles and one RAID pair. I use a 6m SAS cable. No special tools or software is required (or provided). This box replaced an HP MSA60, and was basically a drop in replacement. This item is much better suited to a home office – being quiet and lower power. However, there is a 4” fan for those hot days so I have no troubles with temperature. The only difference is that the box itself does not show up as a separate item in ACU. The box has been flawless for the past month or so, and was easy to set up. In the packing box you get a setup sheet, the unit, screws, a power cord, and a 3’ miniSAS (SFF-8088) cable. The box looks nice – no really nice, but feels a little light and tinny. The cover can be fussy to replace, but it’s not like you do it much. Get the “+” model - not the older one without the "+". The "B" means black.

No IE 11 support

D-LINK SYSTEMS DSR-250 WIRED SSL VPN ROUTER, 8 GIGABIT PORTS, 1 WAN. LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY.

Pros: Used to work for SSL. Works perfectly as a router.

Cons: The SSL Portal does not work with IE11 and Win 7. Does not work with the most up to date Firefox either. Says so in the most up to date Release Notes (1.09B32). Just chatted with tech support - there are no plans to update it, so it is now useless.
