Pros:

I'm pretty good at networking, but I don't love to spend hours (or even minutes) doing things like getting all my devices and computers online. This thing was online in about 6 minutes. It took an extra couple minutes because the AC adapter plug is pretty big so I had to creatively arrange other things that were plugged in. If you have lots of room on your power strip, knock 4 minutes off your time.
After I got it online, I got all my devices and computers online in approximately 11 seconds because I cheated and used the same SSID and key from my last router (the formerly awesome Buffalo WHR-HP-54 which has lasted me about 6 eons. It has been having some issues with excessive wireless signals in our complex lately and frequently at least 1 device will fail to make it online - so it was time to RIP the Buffalo.
I have not touched anything since I set it up. I hid my broadcasting and that was it. Everything has been happily online and behaving ever since and the speed/range are stellar. I really thought the Buffalo was doing fine with that, but I was stuck in my little rut of acceptance, apparently.

Cons:

Weirdness with the WAN/LAN plug in locations, as described in other posts. They are on top of the unit which can cause um.. ugliness and possible instability if you are as clumsy as I am.

Other Thoughts:

Thank you Newegg. Bought this on Cyber Monday and it was here 2 days later. Unbelievable. Even though all my Newegg orders come this fast, I'm still surprised every shipment.
