This review is from: ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server (top performance review at smallnetbuilder.com)
Pros: -performs well
Cons: back to factory setting after power cycling.
very light, fall-off often because of the small stand supporting area.
Other Thoughts: made some minor changes to default ssid name and security key and it run great for over two weeks. i assumed all setting was saved but it was not the case. the router is reset back to the factory default setting after the power adapter is switch to a different outlet (unplugged and plugged right back in). in the situation that i'm away from home to do the configuration again and leaving my "guests" without internet is something left me down because of the missing that little feature of this product. if you are the next buyer and aware of it disadvantage, i do recommend you to get this router for it's cons.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -compact and light weight
-operate 4+ hours on battery
-low heat and low noise
Cons: -the microphone is placed close to speaker - this creates a feedback sound loop problem when use Skype or other chat system.
-No microphone input.
-The metal cover at the back of the LCD conducts electricity when plug in to the power adapter.
Pros: 2 screens, sexy look, compact, quick power up, lots of cool features, HD video
Cons: charger plug is not universal (like usb) so you have to use only cable designed for this camera. Bad power management design for example when you're shooting video and out of battery, the camera wont retract the lens before shutting down so you'll a hard time to carry around or put it in your pocket for recharge later. Filmsy. Dont buy this camera if picture quality is more important than cool features. Camera take lots of time to calculate all the cool features ie. all kind of detection and it wont release shutter until it think condition met (i dont care, i just want a pic is taken after i press that shutter. i hate it when camera wont take pic and you keep trying pressing that button. it's not about slow focus guys, it just has it own mind. you need to turn off all the features to make the pic taking quicker. not recommend if you intend to use this camera for video. after pressing recoding button, it locks the focus, with mean it wont do auto focus like regular video camera.
Other Thoughts: took pics for my friend's birthday and i missed lot of great shots (ie. blowing candles). it takes long time to process and reading memory (used class 6 memory). if you have little dust on your lens and fire flash when taking pic at night, you'll the dust very clearly because somehow the flash shines direct light to the len and emphasize those tinny dust. i got very very good deal from newegg so it still a good buy for me. I am not recommend you to buy this camera for picture and video.READ FULL REVIEW
