NETGEAR FVS318N-100NAS ProSafe Wireless-N 8-port Gigabit VPN Firewall
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sturdy metal construction. Wired connections fast and stable.

Cons: Features are VERY confusing. This may be improved is the interface wasn't SO SLOW. Wireless kicked all users off if a hacked droid phone connected to the wireless. (<- read that again and explain that to me.)
Interface SLOW (not connection speed)

Other Thoughts: Interface (browser based) was painfully slow. Menu required drilling down and changed menu options so switching between menus was impossible. I thought I could deal with the complexity since I'm MCSE and CCNA and I could but it took minutes to do simple port restrictions. And when the wireless kicked all users off because of a droid phone, that was it! I put my old router (with less ports) back.

Western Digital WD RE4 WD1003FBYX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Read the description. These drives last. Use for Servers or for a RAID drive D to go with your SSD Drive C. Use the RED for NAS. (all good experience with both.)

Cons: Noisier than solid state but thats not why you're buying this!

BIOSTAR ECO HD61V Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium (LGA1155) Intel Socket H2(LGA1155) Intel H61 none Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works! No problems with XP install. HD / CDROM cage easy to remove and load. Drivers install smoothly.

Cons: Case Fan LOUD. Had to replace and acually started installing new fan while it was on since the power supply and CPU fan aren't nearly as loud. (Not silent but MUCH better with the new fan.)
Lid doesn't fit well but does the job. (gaps and over hangs.)

Other Thoughts: I read the reviews and expected to replace the case fan. Much happier that I knew a part of this case was instant trash.
