Linksys EA3500-NP SMART Smooth Stream Gigabit Dual-Band Wireless N750 Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Here's he typical stuff people look at: (I never used the CD)

*Solid construction, attractive design. Stays fairly cool.
*Internal antennas
*The Dual 2.4 and 5.0 Ghz bands have decent range.
*Gigabit speeds
*All the typical Port single or range forwarding, port triggering, DMZ,
*Firewall settings IPv4 and IPv6
*VPN passthroughs
*Has an ALG to enable SIP
*DHCP with reservation spots

*Easy setup with or without CD. I did not use the CD. It knows that it's never been setup, and if so it will ask you if you would like to create a Linksys account to where you can monitor and control the device remotely, easily and securely without having to know your IP Address.
* Interface it beautiful and easy to read. Laid out and easy to find areas of interest.
* Fast reset times
*Troubleshooting / Diagnostics screen makes it easy to figure out what is going on.
*Voip friendly, works with my Ooma home phone service
*Wireless printer works fine
*USB storage works great with XBMC and LG Blu Ray player to pick up media and stream 1080p movies, and music with no problems.
*Streaming Netflix in HD while kids play Xbox live no problem and no hiccups.
*I've extended my wifi capabilities by just plugging this into another router with no issues (some may say use a switch or bridge them, but you decide what works best for you either way worked)
*Built in Speed test diagnostics page is really cool
*nice Guest and Parental controls
*The Media Privatization feature is really cool for making sure Apps, Games, or even a Device has priority over another. For example if you want to make sure your First Person Shooter match is always taking precedence over your kids playing Wii, then it will let you easily set it up on one of the built in menu items.
*The connected device list it pretty cool as well and lets you customize the list along with the names and graphics.



So much more on this router that I wouldn't even use. For 90% of people this will work just fine.

Cons: * Could be a Con for some: Power supply takes up a lot of room on a power strip unless it's hanging off the end or your plugs are horizontal.

*No mounting holes or brackets. I like to mount my routers behind the desk rather than take up real estate on the desk.

Other Thoughts: First off I took a little extra time to play with this router due to the negative reviews that didn't quite stack up to my typical experience with Linksys/Cisco routers so i had to see what was up with that.

Other than not having the newest and fastest wifi it's great. I'd recommend this to any of my family.

If you have a large house or yard then distance is always a factor and you can bridge or link multiple routers up with no hassle.

TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 PoE Ports, Metal case
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I've tested many brands of switches and routers lately and this PoE from TP-Link is a nice device for what it's meant for. Again TP-Link did not disappoint.

The construction is stiff steel and looks as though it will last a long time.

Comes with a fairly large 48v power supply with a removable 3 pronged wall cord.

Indicator lights are functional but not obnoxiously bright.

PoE camera plugged right in with no problems or configuring.

Cons: Would like to see gigabit ports but the devices I've got plugged into it don't use that high of bandwidth anyways. That's the only reason for 4 Eggs.

No wall mounting holes for hiding the device, but again I've got my work-around for that also. Industrial strength Velcro is how I've been mounting a lot of my devices lately.

Other Thoughts: Without the higher ports I've decided not to utilize this switch on my main network. This could be looked at as a good or bad thing. Personally I like to have the PoE devices on their own separate network anyways.

Pinnacle Studio MovieBox Ultimate Collection - Capture and Edit HD video 8230-10068-41 USB 2.0 Interface
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nothing to really speak of unless I had a machine it worked on.

Comes with an older version of Pinnacle Studio that works with Win 7.0 but you cannot upgrade it without paying more for the product than you bought the device for.

Cons: Product fails on capture every time.

Very disappointed with this device. Wanted to capture old VHS and CVHS to digital. No luck.

Cheap plastic made in China.

Other Thoughts: Been a long time since I got a lemon like this.
