Pros: Very fast first page out on prints, easy to manage with Web based console. You can even download the driver from the printer to the pc from the web console.
Cons: EXTREMELY slow scans. I replaced a Brother MFC that was 7 years old and it was about 3-4 times faster scanning.
I tried direct via usb and over the network.
I tried HP, Paperport and Microsoft scanning software, makes no difference. I upgraded the firmware and the driver. nada.
Click scan or preview and go make a sandwich. Takes 32s before printer acknowledge request and 30s for the preview then about 25s for the scan.
Skip the preview and you are still talking about 1 min / page. B&W color the same.
Also other pet peeve the flatbed has to be opened all the way 90deg and has nothing holding it. The 7 yr old Brother had a support arm that locked at 45&90 deg and held it open this will just drop and crash down if not held or moved all the way up to 90deg.
Other Thoughts: Over all a nice unit but since I scan a lot it really is a PITA.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HAWKING HOW2R1 Hi-Gain Outdoor Wireless-300N Dual Radio Smart Repeater
Pros: Sets up easy if you have a good wireless technology background.
Cons: Loses connectivity to wireless gateway and must be "reset" at lease once a week or every other day.
Ranges are very poor.
Other Thoughts: I have gone thru 3 of these and spent over 4 hrs with tech support (tech support is knowledgeable at least). I kept trying to make it work because it was for a good customer. Some acknowledged problems are; locks out of configuration and needs to be un-plugged (no reset button) for 12 hrs to lose bad config. Loses connectivity and requires a unplug (albeit for 15 sec) to reacquire network. Either of these "known" problems make the product useless in my situation and it is a shame because it is exactly what I need and don't have an alternate product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 840 Quad-Core 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Desktop Processor HDX840WFGMBOX
Pros: AMD has the best price to performance processors in the market period. Never had a AMD processor go bad in 15 years. Even overclocked and overheated with burn marks on the chip and still ran when returned to stock clock.
Other Thoughts: I don't buy Intel any more for any reason except for very high end clustered servers, and that is just to keep the continuity of the server rooms Dell/Intel.
Maybe for a price is no consideration gaming build for a rich clients kid that insists, but other wise you cant beat the price/performance of AMD
