Pros: Get larger frame sizes if needed and Dual gigabit for my firewall. This all on an active NIC for a good price. I noticed a big difference from my old decommissioned sony desktop that functioned in this capacity previously. My speeds went from barely 80 down to over 235 Mbits down. Works. What's not to like?
Cons: A little more cost but this went a long way this time. Requires a PCI express slot but utilization is very low even when pushed.
Other Thoughts: I use this with a build of IPfire firewall linux distribution. It works well for my needs. I have not tried this with any other OS but I can say it is compatible with this kernel and functions as I need. I know this has lots of extra features that are too long to list here but as it stands I currently will not use any of these. I have this in an embedded low power board in a micro ATX case. Very nice. I just need pure gigabit bandwidth goodness.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I am an engineering network technician with a semi-complex home network including access point, firewall, this switch and network printer, servers and other gear. I found this to be excellent as far as reliability is concerned and links up to all equipment without a hitch. The switch is quiet as can be and appears to be well made. No qualms or complaints. For my needs it replaced an aging Cisco catalyst 3550-EMI switch that was loud as heck and only did 10/100.
Cons: Doesn't do VLAN tagging or VLANS for that matter. No user interface and minimal documentation. That being said, do understand that this does not do the features as a switch costing 3-5X as much.
Other Thoughts: This does what I need it to. Gigabit goodness.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So I was able to pop in the drive and clone over my OS ( Linux Mint 17.1) using clonezilla, so no problems there. Speed is great overall this drives seems very solid with trim support, instantly recognized, no complaints. It replaced a 120 GB OCZ Vertex 4. I will recommend this for anyone looking for a value drive or to put this is in an older system.
Cons: Didn't come with screws, cables, bracket or other brik-a-brak. Had to scrounge for some extra SATA cables to connect all my drives. No Major gripes, you get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: Time will tell on reliability. But seriously I still have platter drives and do not think I will every wear these SSDs out. I install games on these as well as applications. Mushkin has always been a reliable brand for Memory in the past.READ FULL REVIEW
