Pros: 5GHz, 802.11ac, low price
Cons: Do NOT buy this product. The only reason I gave it one star is that I couldn't give it zero. Like many others, I had a complete failure to get ANY connection. I have a Cisco WAP371 Access Point (same brand!!) and couldn't even get the media connector to detect the SSID in a site survey. It occasionally detected my neighbor's, but even that was hit or miss. I know the WAP works because I have three other 5 GHz 802.11ac devices attached. This is a very poorly designed product and (IMHO) Cisco/Linksys needs to toss and replace. After 45 minutes on the phone with tech support, they said it was defective and to get a replacement. I acquired one locally just to see if it was worth my time to return; the second unit had the exact the same result. Now both are going back for a refund. Save yourself the grief and get the D-Link version. It costs more, but it actually works.
Other Thoughts: I read this same warning on other reviews but was lulled by the hope that I have a Cisco setup at home and was reasonably certain it would work. I also noted the Cisco/Linksys responses to bad reviews and remained hopeful. Don't fall into this trap. This device has MANY such reviews across the web for very good reason. The tech team that put this on the market needs to go to unemployment line.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cisco Small Business 100 Series SG100D-05-NA Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Switch
Pros: A simple and small desktop switch with true 1GBE throughput. Being physically small it's easy to place anywhere and no fan means it's quiet.
Cons: A little more expensive than the competition, but I figure you get what you pay for. I bought this to replace a competitor's switch that failed after a little over a year.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel S1200BTS Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C202 DDR3 1333/1066
Pros: Easy to install and well laid out.
Cons: Ivy Bridge CPU's are only supported on version 352 or later. Newegg CON NOT guarentee a particular version. They were gracious enough to understand and allow me to RMW w/o the 15%. Get the standard Sandy Bridge to be sure it will work.
Other Thoughts: Why Intel didn't just make a new part number to keep this from happening is misitfying. It's bad enough when CPU type needs a BIOS update befor eit works.READ FULL REVIEW
