Pros:

The EnGenius ECB300 is a great product for the function and price. The device runs a very bare-bones software and is very stable from what I have found and offers great operating modes.

I particularly liked how it focused on versatility as opposed to number of features it could offer. It can act like a bridge, AP and so on. The range was certainly better than my current router. However, it doesn't matter how far it can go if the device you are wanting to use can't reach the ECB300. Meaning mobile and other hand-held devices may not see all that much of a performance increase.

The antennas are detachable and the TX power is configurable, giving you great control. The device also has some of the basic/essential features for acting like an AP (DHCP, port forwarding, etc).

Provides telnet interface for configuring and reading statistics from the device. Fast boot time and great time in joining wireless networks.

Cons:

I was tempted to knock off 1 star because of the advertised Management Software that is included in the box. It is not very user friendly and does not support what I consider a basic function, the ability to clone settings from device to device. Or at least make and restore backups from the management software. The reason I didn't knock off a star was because it is not essential for using any feature of the device.

Another slight drawback is the old-school design of the web interface. The interface looks like a way simple website and kind of makes it harder to find things.

the casing feels like cheap plastic, but has held up great and will probably be fine so long as it isn't knocked to the floor.

Other Thoughts:

Using 2 of these can make a great wireless bridge for places you can't get an ethernet line.
