Seagate ST310005N1A1AS-RK 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet and fast. Nice setup software downloadable from the Seagate web site. I used the Disk Wizard software to clone my original 750GB Seagate, then switched cables and booted from the new drive. I"m keeping the old drive for backup in case of hardware failure. The 1TB drive seems to read faster and has more than enough space for me. Cable, screws and jumper included for installation. I've had good experience with Seagate drives.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I checked an option (in Win 8.1 device manager disk drives - policies tab) disable cache flushing to save wear on the drive. That stops Windows from continually flushing the drive buffer to disk, no point in having a disk cache if the OS does that. There's a battery backup on my PC that will shut it down automatically in case of power outage.

LINKSYS WVC80N-NP 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The camera works perfectly on my home network after I set up a static IP address. Lens clarity is acceptable but not like what I'm used to seeing with a digital camera, but for the price and considering the low light capability it's good enough. I like the fact that recordings can be started manually or by motion and sent to a Windows networking (Samba) location on the LAN. The cam is viewed through Java enabled browsers over a LAN or across the Internet if set up that way. Android needs a special application, easy to get from Google Play Store. Multiple cams can be viewed from the Windows application included with the camera or third party apps.

Cons: The Linksys setup software is clunky but they make it that way in an attempt to simplify a somewhat complicated product. The angle of view is not as wide as I'd like but if it were then subjects would appear smaller.

Other Thoughts: Setup is performed through an Ethernet port on the rear of the camera. After that the network cable is disconnected and the camera can be used anywhere there's a power source. I used an extension cord to power mine hidden on top of a kitchen cabinet.

ARRIS SurfBoard SB6121 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

5 out of 5 eggs solid performer 10/20/2013

This review is from: ARRIS SurfBoard SB6121 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

Pros: Four bonded channels give 25Mbs throughput to a Comcast test server. The modem is stable and has an informative statistics page at I felt no need to buy the faster 6141 model since most sites on the Internet won't deliver the throughput that this modem is capable of. Easy to set up after an initial call to the cable provider.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Cable Internet is noticeably quicker than my 6Mbs DSL service most of the time. The user needs to understand that data throughput is dependent on what the network and the serving end will give you at that time, depending on traffic demand and bandwidth quotas.
