Pros: If you're looking for a simple solution for a home that only has a few devices, this might work for you.
Cons: Incompatible with every other network device on earth - really.
Other Thoughts: I have a fairly complex network setup, with multiple switches and 2 additional wireless routers. My house is big and fully wired with 10/100/1000 ethernet (I like speed). My network has been functioning with this setup on an old Motorola modem for years without any problems. I hook up this Netgear, and it turned into the config nightmare from network purgatory. Any time I attached ANY of my perfectly functioning existing network devices, I get dropouts, the wireless just plain doesn't work, and internet connectivity was almost non-existent. This all happened regardless of which devices I attached, and I tried dozens of combinations over 10 hours of a wasted day. I've used several modems, routers, and switches over the years - all connected simultaneously over the same network - and this is the only one I've had any problems with. I just wanted a simple upgrade to a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, and got a nightmare instead. If you have more than one network device in your network I suggest you stay away from this one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Micro USB Retractable Cable compatible with Sprint Samsung© Epic 4G
Pros: They work for both power and data.
Cons: Really cheap quality. They aren't the same as shown in the picture. The photo in the listing shows molded plugs, but that's not what I received. All the cables I received have plugs that have 2 pieces which snap together; the tabs that hold the pieces in place are very tiny and very fragile. Three of the six cables I ordered have broken because of this, rendering them useless. The only ones that haven't failed, are the ones that I rarely ever use. Based on the 50% failure rate so far, I expect the others to eventually spontaneously disintegrate, just like the other 3 did.
Other Thoughts: I've purchased other eForcity products in the past, and they are usually reliable, but this one is a major fail. These cables are just junk.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EnGenius ERB9250 IEEE802.11b/g/n Wireless-N300 Smart Repeater
Pros: Well, it appears to set up fairly easily when it feels like connecting, but that's really just a trick.
Cons: Doesn't actually connect at all. Reconfiguring, in order to troubleshoot, is a major pain - it just doesn't want to be reconfigured. I have to mess with resetting, unplugging, restarting my PC, pretty much everything I can thing of to reset a device, just to try another config setting. What a pain in the rear this thing is to work with. I will never purchase another enGenius product again. AHHGGG!!!
Other Thoughts: This thing never really worked for its intended purpose, so I started using a second wireless router as an access point. That has been working, so I just set the enGenius aside to fiddle with it later. Well, later arrived when I upgraded my phones to Android smart phones and needed to extend the wireless range to the rest of my house, and now I really realize how worthless this thing is. Whenever I connect the enGenius to my network, it prevents all my wi-fi devices from connecting. As soon as I unplug the enGenius power - poof! - everything connects instantly. This happens no matter how I configure the enGenius; I have tried every possible configuration, to no avail. I give up, and now it's too late to return the thing.READ FULL REVIEW
