ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: comcast "blast" at 50mbps is hitting me at 100+ peaking at 212.

my routers are the choke points now.

pings as low as 0ms

my old 5120 still works after 9 years. hope this lasts as long.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: bought at best buy. sorry new egg.

TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: signal is strooooong

pushes all my neighbors out of the way.

can set the channel width to a permanent 40mhz

Cons: a very very bad con...i have a 100+ megabit connection at peak performance. a nominal 85-90mbps.

this thing, the 1043, maxes out at 65mbps. IMPOSSIBLE even at 300mbps on 2.4 band connection to hit 100mbps internet speed.

my old dlink 825 will hit 85mbps and more on 2.4 band and 5ghz will hit as hight as 109 peaking at 133

MAJOR MAJOR problem. the 1043 is now the wireless internet choke point.

wired is fine. hits 100+.

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: this last test...
seq read = 525..has actually gone higher before. over the rater 530
seq write = 381
seq read = 95000iops
seq write = 88.5kiops

this is using the samsung magician 4

all about the drivers. iastor kicked it where it needed to be. this is on a lenovo x230t i5 3320m iirc. adata cas 9 1.35v ram clocking at 1.28v, 2 4gig sticks.

this is my second drive. the first one is in my older laptop with sata 2. i had issues and a few kinks. it all sorted out. got the right drivers. the sata 2. 270 seq read. 240seq write. ~45k iops read and write.

my old 830 128gb is still running flawless.

yes, this hd will give an easy 7.9 on the windows assessment scale in win 7 pro 64bit.

Cons: none

it works. get close enough to specs considering im running a 35watt mobile processor in a lenovo tablet.

Other Thoughts: i THINK this supports hipm and dipm. had to change registry to turn it on in power settings.

judging by the longevity of the first one and the 830. id say these are hard to beat as an overall great ssd drive. i paid 200 for the first 840 pro when it was released. paid 140 or so for the second one a month ago.
