1 out of 5 eggs Why this is so bad 10/29/2014

This review is from: Seagate STBP8000100 8TB Business Storage 4-Bay NAS

Pros: Looks nice, nice paperweight

Cons: Ok, so I figured out why mine is running so poorly..... I am 99% sure that it is the network cards that these things come with. I have used different drives (inducing the really expensive ones that Seagate makes for this system, with an improvement in stability, but still very slow.

Other Thoughts: On average I get 3 MB per second using both network cards in a round robin, and when I use either card individually I only get a speed of 1.5 MB per sec. I had them ship me a new one with the same results as well........ Whoever was saying they are getting more speed than that I truly do not trust at this point.

Pros: This chip is fast, and for the speed, very cheap.

Cons: Runs hot.

Other Thoughts: Just wanted to know what other people are getting for a temp on this thing with normal heatsink??? I am looking at around 44C (on idle). Please respond with running temps.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10S-8GBXL

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This was part of a package deal, and would be great if it worked properly.

Cons: The only reason I knew the RAM was bad is because my video playback would freeze up about every 15-20 seconds. Windows memory test passed. When I went into the motherboard I turned the frequency of the RAM to the lowest setting and it worked quite a bit better (it would freeze up for a half a second every minute.... regardless I hope the next module is better, and if so I will re-rate

Other Thoughts: Just wanted to pass on the information if anyone else is having similar problems. Newegg has always been good to me, although I have received 2 defective parts in the last 2 months. :(
