This review is from: HP 8X DVD-ROM 24X CD-ROM EIDE Slim DVD-ROM Drive Model 264007-B21
Pros: Dropped right into a ProLiant DL360 G4P server. Within seconds we were installing the latest CentOS.
Cons: I don't think this seller has any more...
Other Thoughts: What's important is that this seller didn't just dump a product number out there, The seller took the time to describe it in a way that made it easy for the buyer. Kudos!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cisco Small Business RV320-K9-NA Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Routers
Pros: Connects easily as a basic DHCP router using defaults
Cons: Unsupported by Cisco unless the customer is willing to pay.
Repeated inquiries about setting up a VPN with a Dynamic DNS other than by using Cisco partners who charge a monthly fee are met with instructions to buy support.
Repeated attempts to sign up for a user account are ignored (no response appears to have been sent to confirm enrollment).
Links to "downloadable" CISCO client software from the HTTP user interface in the router are bad. When brought to Cisco's attention their response is instructions to buy Cisco support.
As noted elsewhere in these reviews the firmware absolutely positively must be updated before attempting to install the router..
Even after updating the firmware the internal HTML user interface contains bad links to the Cisco client VPN software. When the bad links are brought to Cisco's attention their reply is to request that you pay for technical support to resolve their firmware's bad links.
Setting up a VPN behind a DSL or cable modem where the ISP IP may change from time to time appears impossible unless you either pay Cisco for technical support or pay Cisco "partners" a monthly fee for the same Dynamic Name Server service available, and working, at your own name servers.
Other Thoughts: Cisco seems to be redefining "hubris" with this premium priced product. The features that sort of work "out of the box" do not distinguish it from other vendor's $30 routers.
Physically this router feels solid and likely to outlast the $30 alternatives. Considering how fast technology changes it doesn't make much sense to spend 5 times as much. Three years from now you will have to cope with new technologies and the Cisco RV-320 will still be an obscure, obsolete, and possibly still unsupported, robustly constructed door stop.
This review is from: Vermont American 14919 15/64-Inch Chuck Key
Pros: Well made and a good fit
Fits Dewalt rubber key tethers well.
Thank you Vermont American for publishing at least the pilot diameter.
Other Thoughts: Why is it that vendors think all people buying hardware need is a picture? Vermont American at least published the pilot diameter, but why not a dimensioned drawing?READ FULL REVIEW
