NETGEAR WNDR3800-100NAR N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router - Premium Edition Manufacturer Recertified IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: Its been 5 months and this thing is already dead. The wireless functionality just stopped working and a loud hiss is now emanating from the router. I'm guessing bad caps. Either way, wireless is completely gone but wired connections are unaffected.

I tried contacting Netgear, they will only allow trouble ticket submission for refurbs and after two attempts to unsuccessfully submit a ticket on their web form, I am writing this review.

So here you go Netgear, this is what I tried to submit on your broken website: This router has been trouble from the start but has been working ok since mid-september. Today the wireless stopped working while the wired connections continued working fine. I noticed that a very loud high pitched sound was coming from the router. I performed basic troubleshooting and power cycled the router. The wireless continues to not work at all. I would like Netgear to replace this unit, it certainly appears to be a bad capacitor or other electronic component. I will be happy to send back the faulty unit.

VANTEC CB-ISA100-U3 SATA / IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter

1 out of 5 eggs Not sure it works 01/31/2014

This review is from: VANTEC CB-ISA100-U3 SATA / IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter

Pros: Not sure

Cons: I am copying a 1TB drive using DriveImage and at the 20% mark the drive stops responding and then connects to the PC and the auto play pops up. This of course kills the backup process. I tried this three times using different USB3 ports and each time the same thing happened.

I then put the drive in an older Thermaltake USB2 dock and the backup process worked fine.

Other Thoughts: Vantec, I think we have a problem

Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None

Cons: I love WD drives and I always go for the Black Edition with the 5 year warranty. That said, this drive arrived DOA. Loud clicking and unable to be initialized by Windows 7.

Is WD quality slipping or are the delivery guys too hard on these drives? I dont know.
