Read my GIS-R4 review
Pros: Nice idea but major downsides...I do know someome that has the lowest end model you can buy and he says he has never rebooted his model.....but these units are larger and different firmware I suspect...read on
Cons: If this box did not hang ever so often it would be perfect. However it is almost identical to the R4 and it seems to have the same flaws. I have them hang and cannot remotely bought them....they also go into a semi-working state sometimes where I can manage them and they seem to be working and even remotely reboot but won't pass data until I do a cold reboot after a few minutes. Thought it was heat related but that doesn't seem to really be the issue...If they can't run at even room temperature then there is a problem amd I made sure they were in a 70 degrees environment.
Other Thoughts: Don't know if firmware is going to fix this issue - it may be a problem with the design of the circuitry itself. Since I have seem failures in almost every one I bought it makes me very suspicious of the hardware and not my settings or environments.
