5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: Very stable, very fast. Runs cool with low power consumption. Very compact size for its capabilities - important if someone wishes to mount it in a structured wiring cabinet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The first step I took was to upgrade the firmware. The version was fairly recent, so maybe Cisco worked out some of the problems that other reviewers had in the past. I don't use the VPN capabilities, so I can't evaluate that function. There are a bewildering amount of options in the setup, many of which are probably only familiar to a network engineer (certainly not me!), but the router works "out-of-the-box" with the default settings, to get you up and running quickly (when used with Comcast ISP anyway). The price has more than doubled since I purchased mine in early February (2015). For once, maybe I had luck on my side?

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Router

Pros: Easily configurable with many features. VPN, SNMP

Cons: Some might say it has too many features compared to a D-Link or Linksys, but you get SNMP management capabilities which is nice.

5 out of 5 eggshigh perf simple home router

Pros: Fast and stable. Plugged in , worked. Only setup needed was setting admin password. Replaced more expensive TP-LINK that was unstable. My requirements are 50mbs down stream capable and stability

Cons: none for me

Other Thoughts: Don't need VPN or remote management which apparently people have trouble with. No setup assertion assumes you are already using default subnet.

4 out of 5 eggsGOOD BUSINESS UNIT

Pros: I manage a U.S. Car Club Website and block all non-US IP addresses. This unit allows 100 entries in it's firewall access list. This unit is fast, low power, and WORKS! Makes a good firewall for a small website. I purchased a second one.

Cons: SLOW to boot up, but rarely needs to. Most all entries do not require a reboot.
LOGGING: I need help, or a special utility to read the LOG.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed

Pros: Looks pretty

Cons: Refuses to do 1-to-1 NAT at all. Anything outside of putting an IP in the DMZ gives "Connection Refused". ZERO support from Cisco, had a question in the "Cisco Support Forums" for over five months ZERO response. The logging function doesn't work either.

Other Thoughts: If I had known all this before hand I wouldn't ever have bought this. It's been a waste of time and a headache trying to get it to route my external IP's. IPCop on a PIII worked better than this. I work in a NOC for HP monitoring huge networks, the firewall team tells me "well, that's not really a Cisco product" but a re-branded Linksys.

I'll probably build a PC firewall and sell this online somewhere since it just won't work and Cisco seems to be unreachable. GOOD JOB CISCO.

1 out of 5 eggsA good door stop

Pros: Lots of features

Cons: Slow at handing out DHCP address
Goes catatonic and refuses to route for maybe 10 minutes every few hours. Then it will recovers on it's own.
Very slow a boot.

Other Thoughts: I give up! Flashed the latest software. Dunno what this thing is smoking, but it makes a dandy door stop. Went back to my old slow dumb router that just works.

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid device

Pros: -Intuitive, easy to use interface (as someone else noted, same as the SG300 series)
-Very configurable.
-Reliable
-VPN Passthrough
-One-to-one NAT
-Gigabit interfaces

Cons: -Ok, so the interface is a tad slow.
-Extremely long reboot time (~5 minutes).
-No ability to turn firewall completely off (only found this out after last-resort testing).
-When configuring access rules, you'll find yourself jumping around a lot. The "custom services" screen which one uses to pick non-standard services to forward is different than the access rules screen.
-No ability to define a custom service with a number of ports/services. You have to add a rule for every single custom service/built-in service in the access rules page.
-The access rules page isn't helpful in trying to determine which rule you might want to edit. The only column which gives any insight into what device you might be working with is the "Service" column, but if you've got 3 servers which you're forwarding HTTP traffic to you end up with 3 rules that from the access rules page look identical so you end up having to trial and error into each one until you find the one with the correct destination IP. I really don't understand why they didn't add a "Destination IP" column in addition to the service column, that would have made thing a lot easier.

Other Thoughts: I don't usually feel compelled to write reviews, but for this device I do. After researching the right device for a client of mine I eventually settled on this despite the bad reviews.

First things first, for as much as you will read about the slow management interface, it's really not that slow. The client I was working for had a modem which was an order of magnitude slower than this, so I'm not sure what "slow" is for those who have mentioned it. Besides this, even if it is slow, who cares? In theory you're going to spend the bulk of your time setting it up and maybe log in sporadically to make some changes. It's not like you have to log into it every day.

Second, I'm not experiencing any of the other issues which have been mentioned by other reviewers. For one, VPN passthrough works great. This particular client I do a lot of work via the VPN and I have held connections for well over 10 hours with no problems. Before going any further it's worth mentioning the first thing I did was update the firmware to the latest version (at the time of writing this, 1.0.4.14).

Overall, I have found this box (especially considering the price) to be very worth of the Cisco name. Every feature that is on the spec sheet works as described. As for the speeds, I haven't noticed any degradation of service either internal or external as a result of adding this box to the network.

2 out of 5 eggsIf you have PLEX or media servers - avoid like the plague

Pros: size factor, stability, all great - looks nice, clean, once you get the hang of the GUI it is reasonably sensible. Throughput is as advertised

Cons: If you want to connect media, PLEX or XBMC and use it on a highspeed LAN in your own building, home, etc. do not buy this. I went from an EA4500 to this hoping to increase speed and response. with the new router, i can't even see the media server. On the phone with SBSC, for 2 hours, and they want a packet trace. I bet the problem is NAT. Interwebs are full of warnings about this device. I would not recommend it, and will likely be returning for one that works

5 out of 5 eggs6 weeks in running solid

Pros: Lots of great features, has not been down yet.

Cons: Far more complex that a "home" routers. Was not a "out of the box" set up; Cisco's site does not provide much support, if any.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat unit, but requires exposure to "Cisco's way of doing things"

Pros: This unit is solid once configured, but this is not your standard Linksys-like router, so don't expect that behavior or ease / speed or setup.

Cons: Interface is slow and not compatible with all browsers, so play with it until you figure it out :)

Other Thoughts: This unit is great for QOS purposes, never needs a reboot and if you need something more solid than this system - you're talking serious (read - expensive) Cisco routers. Unit is small enough to fit in any cabinet that was occupied with your old Linksys / Netgear router. It takes some time to start, restart etc - up to 2 minutes. After it has been setup once - there's nothing else to do there and you can forget about having it on your network. Logging is decent.
