Cisco SG300-10MPP 10-Port Gigabit Max PoE+ Managed Switch
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Great Switch 09/28/2015

This review is from: Cisco SG300-10MPP 10-Port Gigabit Max PoE+ Managed Switch

Pros: 8 ports PiE with two non-PoE ports to spare/uplink.
Lots of power for devices. I can add a few more phones without hesitation. No fans, so it is quiet.

Cons: Power brick, makes for messy power cabling.
Nagios does not recognize it correctly.

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again no doubt, and recommend it.

Otterbox Defender Series Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 Papaya (77-30859)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Otter Box! Works like a champ (bosses are wimpy) at protecting your phone.

Cons: "They" said it was Papaya, but it is PINK!!!!!!!
If you want pink, then get it. If you want Papaya, the pass on this one.

Other Thoughts: The OtterBox is and likely will be great. But the color is NOT as advertised.

Synology RS814 Diskless System 4-bay Rackmount NAS

5 out of 5 eggs Synology 11/30/2014

This review is from: Synology RS814 Diskless System 4-bay Rackmount NAS

Pros: 1U, quiet, RAID 5, many capabilities, 2 LAN ports, and flexible. Not much more that you can ask of a NAS. One of my personal pros is it uses an ARM processor. Setup was easy. There seem to be regular OS updates, which are painless to apply. Adding more capabilities is also painless, assuming you know what you are doing. Works nicely.
What I REALLY like is that I know what drives are going to it, AND I get to choose. WD Red Pro 2 TB in my case.

Cons: The mounting "ears" can only be attached to one spot. When using a two rail only rack, as I am. It would be nice if the mounting ears could be placed so the attachment point aligns with the center of the HDDs. I was able to "reverse" them so part of the HDDs stick out the front. This is NOT a deal breaker, for me. Your mileage may vary.
Also I could only use two (2) screws instead of four (4) to attach the HDDs into the sleds/carriers. It still works, but I would like to be able to use four. Again NOT a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: Like anything that is new to you, it will take some time and work to know how to use it.
Would I buy another one? Yes, I would, or a different model.
Would I recommend it to a friend? In general, yes, but we all know those friends that just can't handle anything, so no to them.
I would like to see one that is made for 2.5" drives, especially SSDs. it could be totally silent.
