Pros: It was free with another purchase. Small. easy to use. pretty straight forward.
Cons: Since it was free, the only use I wanted from this was to use as a repeater. At first, it seemed to work but after a period of time it started to fail. It got to the point where it wouldn't even connect to the network. I tried resetting it with no success.
Other Thoughts: The only thing I tested this was to use it's repeating function. I never bothered messing with it for any other purpose. Everything else may work fine with the device I have, but I have no reason to bother with it.
1 egg because one feature it has is that you can use it as a repeater. Since I can't use it as that and every other feature is pointless for me, then it would have been a useless device for me to buy. If I could careless about it being a repeater and everything else would work, I may give it 3-5 eggs. But I would have never tested it as a repeater.
Pros: What you basically have is a low cost affordable switch.
Cons: not reliable in my opinion. Lasted 1 year.
Other Thoughts: At about 1 year of ownership, half the ports on one side died out. several days after, the other side died out.
no surges happened during that time. product is kept in a climate controlled server room.
replacing tp-link switch with a different brand, same features, a little more expensive, but I hope it will have more longevity in the long run.
Even if I am able to RMA this product, I'm not sure it's even worth my time. If something goes out, I need it replaced that day. I don't think I can rely on it if I had to install it at another office knowing it will fail in a short time span. At least it lasted one year.. I guess that's worth 1 egg... scrambled.
This review is from: ATOP Decorative AT-AP101-RD Red SGCC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Affordable case for those that need to save a few extra dollars. It does the job if you are building a home/office computer.
Cons: I think the vent holes are big, but could be wrong. Could cause dust problems later on. No rubber feet pads included(could cause the case to slide).
Other Thoughts: If you plan on buying a decent size motherboard(ones around the 12"x10" range), I suggest NOT using this motherboard. It will fit, but it will come close the drive bays and may cause issues. This is not a con, it's just the dimensions of the case.
Also, if you plan on buying affordable cases like these, you have to expect the typical flimsy case. Which I do not think it's a con either... If it was not flimsy, you would be paying more money. They are flimsy to build, but seem solid when it's all together.
