TP-LINK AV200 Powerline Adapter Starter Kit Review
     Wed, Aug 17 2011 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Do you have a TV, game console, Blu-Ray player, or any other device that can connect to a network but it doesn’t have built-in wireless or it is out of your wireless network’s range? Then I have some really good news. TP-LINK has a 200Mbps Powerline Ethernet Adapter (TL-PA211) that’ll give you connectivity anywhere there’s a power outlet. The TL-PA211 is reliable enough to keep your pings low in online gaming, and even fast enough to stream HD video from one end of your house to the other. It’s also pretty affordable. Check out the full review for all of the specs and a d etailed account of my experience with the TL-PA211."

Synology DiskStation DS2411+ NAS Review
     Wed, Aug 17 2011 | 4:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DS2411+ is considered a business-class NAS device suitable for SMB users, however its $1,700 asking price makes it a little more feasible when compared to other enterprise and rackmount NAS with similar capacities but much steeper price tags. Those familiar with Synology's products will find that the DS2411+ is a larger version of the DS1511+, which was essentially a larger version of the DS411+II. Given that the 4-bay DS411+II costs $700, the new 12-bay DS2411+ seems like decent value, even at $1,700 -- and that doesn't include the storage drives. That's well beyond the grasp of the average user, but we're confident those who require such radical storage solutions will find a lot to appreciate in the DS2411+.

Netgear N600 DGDN3700 Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router Review

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E420s Laptop Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2011 | 4:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's a time and place to act a fool, like at a Ludacris concert for example, or when entertaining your in-laws during a holiday function in which you're trying to encourage a hasty departure. Likewise, there are situations where showboating simply isn't appropriate. Wondering what this has to do with a laptop review? Well, the same concept applies to PCs. Think about it -- if your main goal is to pack as much horsepower underneath the hood as humanly possible, regardless of weight or battery life, then you're looking for a desktop replacement. And the flashier, the better, presumably because you'll be toting it around to LAN parties in between trips to the chiropractor. On the other hand, if you spend most of your time in board rooms and pitching PowerPoint presentations to co-workers and clients, a flashy system with an LED light show sends the wrong message. This is where the ThinkPad Edge 420s comes in...

QNAP TS-412 Turbo NAS Review
     Sat, Jul 02 2011 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent years, QNAP has emerged as one of the biggest names in the network-attached storage business and for good reason: it offers one of the largest and most impressive NAS product lines. The company's offerings start at $150 and can go for more than $1,000 catering to home, SMB and corporate needs. As one of QNAP's most affordable 4-bay NAS, we were unsurprisingly drawn to the TS-412. The device is fetching only $40 more than the older TS-410, but considering its Marvell processor runs 50% faster (800MHz versus 1.2GHz), we feel the TS-412 is a better value, and so we've opted to review it instead. We also believe the QNAP TS-412 could displace Synology's $360 DS411J. Although the Synology device features the same 1.2GHz Marvell processor, it comes equipped with 128MB of memory, the TS-412 doubles that to 256MB -- not to mention other shortcomings that we'll explain later in the review. We're also curious about how it compares to NAS devices in the $500-$600 bracket. Assuming QNAP's latest product doesn't disappoint -- and they rarely do -- the TS-412 has a fair chance at becoming the "go-to" 4-bay NAS.

Thecus N3200XXX NAS Review
     Fri, Jul 01 2011 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over four years ago, we reviewed our first Thecus product: a dual-bay NAS powered by an Intel IOP 80219 processor and 128MB of DDR RAM. Although we appreciated many aspects of the Y.E.S. Box, it wasn't without flaws. Its GUI was ugly and clumsy, its setup process was confusing, and performance left much to be desired. Looking back at the review, it's incredible how far we've come in terms of cost and functionality in just a few years. While pricing on NAS devices hasn't changed much, virtually everything else has. In fact, 2TB 5400RPM desktop drives start at only $80, and today's budget NAS devices are considerably more powerful and functional. The company has released countless new products and we have one onsite: the N3200XXX, another small office/home office NAS. The $430 device is part of Thecus' new XXX series, which supposedly delivers Xtreme power, Xtreme function, and Xtreme value. As cute as that may be, we're more interested in seeing how it stacks up to the competition.

“The ASUS WL-330N3G is a wireless router, access point, network adapter, repeater, and a Wi-Fi and 3G sharing device. For a moment, you may stop and think that the folks at ASUS must be magicians.
