Pros: Print server works really well.
Cons: Drops WAN connectivity often. Upgrading firmware did not help. Opened problem ticket with Trendnet and got stock answers. I using a wired connection and they kept telling me to check various wireless settings. Documentation on set up is rudimentary and not helpful for anything advanced. Router will not work as a repeater or a bridge. I had most trouble when trying to connect to a VPN. I would not recommend. It also takes a long time to reset itself everytime you update a config parameter on the GUI.
Other Thoughts: I don't want to pay shipping to return this so I decided to re-connect my trendnet 639 wireless router which worked flawlessly and use this one as a print server and extra Gigabyte switch. As long as the other router connects to the WAN and serves as a DHCP, no more drop outs. thankfully I didn't pay a lot. The firmware on the router is really bare bones, I can't even use it as a repeater. Also note that the dual band requires that you have a 5 Ghz device that will use the other band. Its not 2 - 2.4 Ghz, so unless you have a wireless card or internet TV that uses 5 G, you only have one band.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCW-608 - USB 2.0 Adapter for IDE / SATA Device, Protective Case Included
Cons: IDE connections don't work for 3.5 or 2.5 in drive.
Windows 7 does not recognize the drive at all for 2.5. For the 3.5 it said it was an unknown device.
Other Thoughts: I'm not going to spend $8 to ship this back or stand in line at the post office. The hard enclosures and drive docks I got work better than this, but they are SATA. I needed one that would do PATA.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pictureperfect Hair Salon Nintendo DS Game
Pros: My little niece who is 6 was very excited about getting this game for her Nintendo DS. Newegg shipped this very fast.
Cons: This game does not run on Nintendo DS Lite and no where did it mention it would only run on DSi. I even checked the Nintendo site and it did not indicate that some games do not run on DS lite or really compare the two systems. So now she's disappointed and we are trying to figure out what to do since the game is open.
Other Thoughts: This is not really Newegg's fault but I criticize Nintendo for not making it clear on which systems will run the game. I think its bad to have people buy the lite version without telling them what they are missing and disappointing a kid on Christmas.READ FULL REVIEW
