5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Seems to work right out of the box..My old router would always drop and lose connection. Once I ran the Quick Start wizard, it did everything for me..No need to do anything, just write down the security key and go. Plus, it looks like a well designed product - nice and glossy plus the USB 2.0 looks cool. Will try that someday

Cons: Nothing yet..I just opened it and installed it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Decent router for the price, easy set up

Cons: Not sure why, but when my 2 laptops go to sleep, I loose wireless connections, and I have to reboot the router. No big deal, but I've yet to find the cause ... Perhaps a download of the latest firmware might help.

3 out of 5 eggsSimple Device (Good or Bad Depending on Where You Stand)

Pros: - Low cost
- Simple setup
- Separate SSIDs for each band range (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz)

I got this refurb'd and on sale. For what it provided, it was a pretty good deal and would likely not have wanted to pay more for it.

Set up is simple for someone who doesn't know or care for the inner workings of setting up a wireless network.

A nice feature (which is probably standard on other routers, but I'm not sure) is that the two different wireless bands are kept separate from a wireless standpoint. One SSID is hard-wired for the 2.4 Ghz band while another is setup for the 5 Ghz band. Either of these can be disabled if there is no desire to use that band.

Cons: - Unstable web interface
- Few advanced features
- NO firewall settings customization

Impressions on the web interface is mixed. While parts of the web interface look pretty and simple, it does not hold up well. Issues range from the web interface crashing and causing it to be inaccessible without a router reboot, to some settings like the router's internal IP to be reset when certain settings are changed.

I wanted to use this device as a simple wireless access point on the 5Ghz band. However, with the few advanced settings available, there weren't any properties to change beyond the band channel. Again, the unstable web interface made this an unpleasant experience.

Other settings were relatively limited. Parental controls are limited to just setting up windows in which the device can operate. There are also no port forwarding features of any sort, which really hurts the more experienced user.

Other Thoughts: I guess you do get what you pay for, as this device is truly for quick-and-dirty setups. However, I got what I wanted with the wireless traffic operating at 5Ghz while not hogging up performance on my Bluetooth devices.
The device has been on the market for a little while and there appears to be an OpenWRT firmware platform out there - which might solve the limited settings problem. I've yet to try it as of this writing.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple dual band wireless

Pros: This is a fine router, with all the power needed to fill my 2500 sq ft.
It literally took longer to unwrap it (dual bubble wrapped express mailers) than it did to receive a signal.
Quick set up guild it too easy.
Simply change any settings and passwords, and turn on guest network (if needed) done.
It comes with 3 ssid's defined, & preset.
passwords are not on the router, so keep the quick start guild.

Cons: friggin' ~mylar~ bubble wrap..... hand grenade.......

Other Thoughts: This one is configured and kickin' like chicken.
I will get a spare before they're gone.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Gone thru numerous router made by Belkin, Netgear and others; by far this Vizio outperformed all at great price. I have full wireless access throughout my 3 bedroom house without having to use repeater. The connection is perfect, install was super simple and manual is easy to follow. Highly recommend this product.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Router is refurbished but looked like new. Easiest set up I have ever done. Fast as hell and wireless distance is quite a bit further than the dlink i replaced. I only wish i had order 2 or 3 more. Lightening hit my last 2.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: It performs flawlessly right now will see how it does for the long run.
