TRENDnet TEW-638PAP 300Mbps Wireless N PoE Access Point
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Great, but only if you have access to a Windows computer 05/18/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-638PAP 300Mbps Wireless N PoE Access Point

Pros: Good range, good speed, power over ethernet.

Cons: If you don't have a Windows computer to run the setup program, you can't make it work. I had my parents buy this to extend their existing wireless network, but they only have Macs. I called technical support, and they were generous enough to offer to help me set it up for $39.99. Luckily I have a Windows PC at my house, so I was able to set it up there and then take it back over and hook it up.

Unbelievable in the year 2013 that a company would have zero support for non-Windows computers. Probably should have returned it.

Vantec Stealth 60mm Double Ball Bearing Silent Case Fan - Model SF6025L

4 out of 5 eggs decent airflow for size 06/28/2010

This review is from: Vantec Stealth 60mm Double Ball Bearing Silent Case Fan - Model SF6025L

Pros: Not any louder than my stock case fan, but better airflow. The sound it does make is the air itself moving and not the fan whining, which is nice.

Cons: Is it normal to have to guess which direction a fan is going to blow when you install it? I got lucky not to have to spend 5 minutes flipping it around.

Other Thoughts: Replaced the stock case fan on my MSI Wind PC used as a always-on home server. It tends to heat up pretty well, and I couldn't even feel the air coming out with the stock fan. This one definitely has better flow.

Pros: Good size, vertically mounted in its stand. Low power consumption. Fully supported under Linux (Debian 5.0, Lenny) except for hardware monitoring. Gigabit ethernet.

Cons: CF slot placement. I thought the first round was DOA. When I got the second unit, I had the same problem. I reset the CMOS by moving a jumper, then everything worked.

Other Thoughts: Installed Debian on a 4 GB CF card, then installed 2 TB drives in a software RAID 1. Using as a file server (NFS/SMB/AFP), music player (MPD), bittorent downloader (BTPD). No complaints whatsoever, except having to play with jumpers on a factory unit.
