Pros: DD-WRT firmware support, two radios, virtual adapters with DD-WRT, flawless design, excellent built in coverage. Did i mention DD-WRT?
Cons: Can get hot and no external antennas ports. USB over Samba is way slow, configuration is picky.
Other Thoughts: If you looking for the best apartment or small business access point this is golden with DD-WRT. Works much better than other AP's when OSX reconnects SMB shares after sleeping. Wheel now spins for 30 seconds, instead of maybe connecting after a minute. Make sure you choose a good channel for congested environments, scan and choose smart. 5ghz is great cause no one uses it, and or doesn't configure it past channel 13. Having owned and setup countless wireless access points, this is by far the best consumer model available. With DD-WRT you get inundated with features. I can't account for how decent DD-WRT uses NAT and other Firewall and Port features, its simply an AP for a Blackberry and MacBook Pro. BB@802b, MBP@802n. Thank you Newegg and DD-WRT, and thank you SSH you are my best friend.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: VIZO ARS-250 Stainless & Plastic 2.5" SATA SATA Dual Drive Rack
Pros: Very well built. Very well though out. The eject trays spit the drives out the perfect amount. And its very cool to look at. Allows you to make use of those empty floppy and ever so elusive 5" bays! They are just so clean and pretty. As for use well its great. Never worry that there is a cable snag and one of your RAID 0 SSDs looses power. And quickly easy run backups/clones to new SSD drives.
Cons: Not completely aluminum. I like aluminum, makes things feel space age. Moreover this is a flat out cool product, which means i would have paid more for it. Also the power hookups for each tray on the device is MOLEX, is should be SATA Power. PEOPLE HATE MOLEX, its bad always has been always will!
Other Thoughts: Its sometimes hard to find suitable positions for 2.5" form factor drives. So why not give them a home? Instead of placed all shadedly against some part of your case. Moreover these should be more like floppy drives. They say they have a 4 drive 5" bay.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These devices work great for people needing multiple wifi spots. Dd-wrt and these devices provide perfect handoff between multiple units. Complete coverage to an office space or high bewilderment home, without paying for ugly difficult to mount decent antennas. You can even authenticate against a RADIUS server.
Cons: Doesn't have antenna connectors... Not a problem considering how relatively cheap it is compared the a decent antenna solution. The newer models have more built in antennas.
Other Thoughts: If you looking todo something cheap and good. Put these in at a company provide excellent coverage all over. They even work swimmingly well in Mac environments. Make sure you actually configure your channel. Its amazing how many people don't do a site survey before setting their wireless channel. I usually go for the cleanest channel with a clean channel above and below. I also use it to manage QoS for wireless traffic giving things like Voice, and Video a +1.
