Pros: Nice size
Battery life seems to be good
Output sound not bad
Cons: Poor mic sound quality. Get the device 2 feet from your face and it struggles to pick up the voice unless you're yelling. It's pretty much useless when clipped to the sun visor in my wife's Escape. It's half way decent clipped directly to your shirt or seat belt at mouth level. Otherwise the mic just doesn't pick-up talking.
The required app that makes the bells and whistles work has been broken since mid-late December 2013 and the speak-to-text function no longer works. Motorola has yet to fix this problem.
Other Thoughts: Really thought about returning it, but probably can't. I suspect it's been too long since I bought it (11/28/13). $40 wasted.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ability to setup networked HDDs; solid data sharing
Cons: Drops connections...
I 'upgraded' from a Netgear WGR614v10 Wireless-G router so I could take advantage of the dual-band support and setup some shared drives. This router frequently drops connections to many of our devices throughout the house (tablets, phones, BD players). Our LG BD player has struggled to connect to Netflix frequently ever since installing this router. I never had this problem with the old WGR614v10 router. It's pretty disappointing to think that I should go back to the old router considering what I paid for the WNDR4500 (which was much less than the current price).
Pros: It was easy to install the drives.
Nice stand for vertical positioning of the enclosure.
Worked fairly well - while it worked....
Cons: Not the typical USB connector I'd expect to see on an external hard drive.
Died on me after 1 year and 3 months of very light usage. I had only used it a handful of times to update back-ups. It spent most of the past year in a safe. I had just used it to back up files in preparation for an OS upgrade. When I reconnected to do one last refresh of the back-up, my PC wouldn't detect it. I tried it on 2 different PCs with 2 different hard drives and nothing seemed to work. Since I also had another printer USB cable handy, I tried it, but the PC still didn't recognize the drive.
I connected the original drive to the PC using the internal SATA connection and it was recognized just fine.
