HP StorageWorks X310 Intel Atom Dual Core (1.6GHz) 2GB Memory 1TB Data Vault 3 open bay, Windows Home Server
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Remote Access, HP Quality, Ease of setup, Value
For the price ($275 after rebate) I was ready to pay for a synology SAN, I have a full blown home server.
Part of the setup was registering my windows live account, that somehow allows me to have my own domain for accessing my server and network remotely (SSL) all for free (BONUS, I didn't expect).
I threw a couple of old sata drives I had laying around in in it, I chose one to be formatted and made part of the total storage, and kept the other with data intact as a share for my network to be able to see. (all easy to do)

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I did have one glitch in the setup, it asks for a server name and I selected one different than the default. After a mandatory reboot, the setup couldn't 'see' the server (I assume because of the different name) on the network. Also the built in web addresses for the links all use the default name, so I suggest leaving the name of the server alone until you are familiar with all the places you might need to change it.

Acer G235HAbd 23'' 5ms  1920x1080 WideScreen LCD monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice and bright
No dead pixels
Came with both analog and digital cables, not just a adapter.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Upgraded my wifes 17" CRT monitor, this has been a great change, and seemingly much less eye strain for her.

Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g Wireless Broadband Router up to 54 Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this router to convert my house to wireless. It sits behind my TV where my cable modem is which makes it easy to hook up my xbox and tivo to the wired ports. Covers the entire house, I could even install a different custom firmware and let my neighbors use it as a portal if I wanted :-)

Cons: I found it easier to setup the modem by myself, rather than use the 'one touch' linksys setup.

Other Thoughts: Tons of options through custom firmwares, could be a lot of fun to tinker with on a cold rainy day this winter.
