EnGenius ECB1750 AC1750 802.11ac 3x3 Dual Band High-Powered Gigabit Access Point/CB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I love these. Great feature set, great VLAN support. Unlike some devices, you can change all the settings and activate them at one time. This means you can both change it's IP and change the management VLAN without jumping through hoops like with some equipment that only lets you change one at a time.

Cons: Comes with 192.168.1.1 default IP - be sure to change it before attaching it to a network switch on your LAN or you will get an IP address conflict with your gateway most likely. That's not fun.

Other Thoughts: If you want an SSID to be on the default untagged VLAN, don't enable VLAN isolation for that SSID. I've started using EnGenius products to replace my older D-Link waps that have security flaws and aren't getting firmware updates anymore. If you don't need a complete CISCO management system, but want something better than your typical home WAP, these things are great.

Vixen 3897 LVW 17 mm Telescope Eyepiece

5 out of 5 eggs Wow. Just wow. 01/16/2016

This review is from: Vixen 3897 LVW 17 mm Telescope Eyepiece

Pros: Wonderful wide view, crystal clear. Good magnification with my 5.5" reflector.

Cons: Cost as much as my scope.

Other Thoughts: The difference between this and what comes with a consumer grade scope is stunning. At first I thought it wasn't going to fit my Cassini telescope because it was so big, but both are standard 1.25" mounts.

GIGABYTE GA-Z170XP-SLI (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks good, has good features. Probably fine if you are Microsoft centric.

Cons: Both the sound card and network port don't work in Linux using the latest Ubuntu LTS. No drivers available.

Other Thoughts: Both the sound card and network card are completely unworkable in Linux. If I'd been able to know the exact chipset prior to purchasing I would have researched and never would have bought this board, but they just say "Intel Gigabit Ethernet" in the specs and I made the assumption it wouldn't be bad. The onbound sound is recognized but never puts out any sound. Again, searching the ineterwebs for that chipset shows that nobody has it working. I ended up having to add another $50 of hardware to the motherboard in extra cards just to replace the onboard parts that don't work.
