This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Great freq response for a 10". Stereo passthrough or LFE. Very affordable. Looks good with or without the grill.
Cons: No heatsink on amp in the back. Tends to get a little hot to the touch when I am running it at high volume for a long time. (This is normal, but a heatsink would dissipate the heat much quicker.) Subwoffer tends to "walk" on tile floor when dumping really hard. Needs more grippy rubber on the legs.
Other Thoughts: For the price it cannot be beat. It is ported, so you will get a little delay in the bass, but it will be boomier.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit Wireless Router - WZR-HP-G300NH
Pros: 400MHz CPU. 64MB RAM. 32MB Flash. USB support for printers or NAS. Gigabit ports for LAN and WAN. 300mbps wifi. DD-WRT support. Great range and speed over Wifi. Support for multiple SSIDs on the same MAC address. Pretty good price when it is on sale.
Cons: No VLAN support on built in switch. DD-WRT devs are working on this. If you want to run multiple SSIDs and separate IP ranges, this has to be done on L3 instead of L2. I would prefer to set up separate VLANs for each SSID, but you can accomplish the same thing with iptables ACLs and separate DHCP servers for each subif. Factory installed DD-WRT had issues loosing the DHCP lease from Cox. I did a 30/30/30 reset and re-flashed the firmware and all is well now.
Other Thoughts: I am a network admin that mainly deals with Cisco gear at work. If this had VLAN support (access, not trunk) it would be a great product that competes with high end Cisco gear. As of right now (1-10-11) the LAN ports are not differentiated, so you cannot do VLAN access ports or assign QoS based on ethernet ports. The LAN ports are all seen by the router as eth0. You can however assign QoS based on service port (TCP, UDP, ICMP), device MAC address, or IP address (or CIDR block).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cisco Small Business PAP2T-NA Internet Phone Adapter with 2 VoIP Ports
Pros: Very feature rich. Easy basic setup to use as an extension on Asterisk. Can set it up with 2 lines and 2 extensions on Asterisk. Studdering dial tone indicates new mail on Asterisk server.
Cons: Built-in feature codes conflict with Asterisk feature codes such as *67 to clock callerID. If you use the built-in *67 feature code, it just blocks the callerID sent to Asterisk. When a call is made using *67, Asterisk never sees the *67 feature code and sends the callerID out. You have to disable the built-in feature code and have it pass *67 to Asterisk in order to block outgoing callerID.
Other Thoughts: If you just need a simple ATA to use analog phones with a PBX then this device is perfect for you. Registering it directly to your Voip provider can be a bit more complicated.READ FULL REVIEW
