TRENDnet TEW-818DRU AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source support
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a light (amazingly light, actually) router. It has no external antennas and 4 LAN ports. I've installed it in conjunction with a Verizon FIOS Actiontec so I'm not using the "router" part of the router, just the wireless. And I have to say I'm liking the AC speeds, the fast N plus the guest network that I now have. It worked fine with a Linksys media bridge (WUMC710) using WPS. A Trendnet TWE-805UB USB3 USB AC and N adapter boosted my wife's desktop by maybe 30% over the prior N network. The extenders got the Samsung Blurays running the (cannot be said here) prime app really speedy. So I'm pleased.

Cons: Amazingly plastic and light, just seems kind of flimsy but its not. Bot that much of a con :)

Other Thoughts: While maybe not as pro as the top of the line Asus router, this is one nice unit. The speed boost just on the internal side of my home network (spouse and her laptop are wireless) makes it worth it.

ioSafe SOLO G3 3TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I found this at one of the big box stores and did some research, so got it expressly to protect the photos and records of my wife's fledgling photography business. Not my only backup, but if a disaster happens, it is likely to survive more than my MyBooks external drives or NAS. It is a solid, weighty device that stays put. It installed painlessly, simple USB 3 hookup. Drive is fast. I'm using it exclusively for backup (using Acronis Home 2012). President of company emailed me after registration, pointed me to videos showing the product being in fire and then water and drive being safe. Yes, an offsite solution is likely needed for 100% safety and when you must keep things safe, but this is a solid 1st line for backups that has more survivability than anything reasonably priced I could find.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: I'd be interested in a gigabyte NAS that had same safety features.

Pros: I have a Asus M4A785TD-M EVO and was getting memory errors with the 8G I had installed. Took those out, put 16G of these in in and it worked perfectly and the errors are gone. Should have upgraded sooner.

Cons: None. It was fast and perfect
