Asus VivoBook Black Notebook -14.1
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice when it worked

Cons: Had the widespread audio problem out of the box.

Completely died in under 5 months.

Other Thoughts: Avoid Asus.
Lenovo has better options for the same money.
The Yoga 2 is a better built machine than this with a better screen for the same money.

ASUS VivoBook S400CA-RS51-CB Touchscreen 14.1
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Problematic Audio from Day One (chronic problem per complaints all over Internet)
Died in under six months
Asus would not honor warranty and instead wanted more for a repair than the unit costs new.

Other Thoughts: I support several small companies and do all of the hardware/software specification, purchasing, and configuration for them. Lately have been buying Asus as they seem to offer exceptional value. Had success with them for about two years and so got this one for my niece to take to college. It completely dies in under six months and Asus will not honor the warranty. Newegg sold it to me without a warranty they say. How I don't know as that is not what the item description said. The Asus tech said it would probably cost $x to be repairs so we sent it in and was then told three times that amount, more than the cost of a newer better machine. Shame on Asus and shame on Newegg. I will not buy another product from Asus ever again. Used to be my go to motherboard manufacturer and trusted for other products, but after this first ever 'warranty' request I have learned my lesson.

ZyXEL NWA1123-NI Dual-Radio Ceiling Mount N600 Gigabit PoE Access Point (AP)/Repeater
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Old Firmware, Otherwise Great 12/13/2014

This review is from: ZyXEL NWA1123-NI Dual-Radio Ceiling Mount N600 Gigabit PoE Access Point (AP)/Repeater

Pros: Rock Solid Reliability
POE for installation with no power nearby
Tremendous range

Cons: Ancient Firmware that MUST be updated

Other Thoughts: I have used many Zyxel products for business use and so choose this unit for a difficult home application as we were having problems with coverage from the typical home wireless routers. This unit has tremendous range and solved the coverage problems we had AFTER we figured out the problem with this unit. I could not get certain drop down menus to work and after trying multiple browsers and computers looked at the firmware and it was dated back to 2009. I updated the firmware and then all was well. I am very familiar with Zyxel products but I am sure that if you are not this would be horribly frustrating and probably make you return the product. Also, got this on sale for about $70. The regular Newegg price is about $125 and at the regular price I would suggest paying $15 more and get the newer version with AC. But at $70 this was good enough for me, that is after I figured out the problem with the ancient firmware that came preinstalled.
