Pros:

-Appears to actually give 1GB throughput across all ports.
-Will not slow down to slowest connected product.

Cons:

-It has a built in "Denial of Service" guard which cannot be disabled. There is a button to turn it off in the options pane...does.not.do.anything.
-Can't flash it with tomato/DDWRT to get around this problem.
-Phone tech support does not understand what the features of the router are, much less what they do.
-Drivers were last updated in 2008
-Configuration pages only render properly in IE. They look broken in firefox / chrome.
-On the "Special applications" page (port forwarding) I have encountered some sort of bug where I cannot add or remove anything from that window because of the values put in the table BY THE FACTORY!
-If you work from home and have a corporate e-mail that generated a lot of SMTP traffic to different servers, the DOS guard WILL block it.
-Setting up port forwarding will NOT cause the DOS guard to ignore any traffic on those ports. It will still block them.

Other Thoughts:

I try to play games on steam (TF2) and refreshing the server list returns the first 50 servers, and the DOS guard blocks all other servers in the list. Phone tech support's solution (one guy, indian, who barely spoke english, much less understood it) was for me to enable the DMZ...THE POINT OF A ROUTER IS TO NOT USE THE DMZ!!! I wouldn't use your router if I wanted to be in the DMZ, I'd buy a switch and be done with it!

Phone tech support will encourage you to enable DMZ and place the app you are trying to fix / get working on the "Access Control" list, which actually blocks that application from working at all.
