This review is from: TRENDnet TE100-S80g Smart GREENnet Switch
Cons: Doesn't like to talk Gig-E with anything other than other TrendNet switches. See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I have a handful of TrendNet green switches in 5, 8, and 16 port models. The 5 and 16 port switches are great. But this 8 port switch absolutely will not link at Gig-E with anything other than one of the other Trend switches I have. All my machines have Gig-E NICs and the 5 and 16 port models make rock solid Gig-E connections. But plugging in those SAME hosts to this 8 port yields nothing but plain old 100 Mbps Fast-E. (Maybe I just got a bad one?)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Minuteman RPM1521 Remote Power Manager
Pros: Intuitive and responsive web interface, compact design.
Cons: None that I can find.
Other Thoughts: Bought 6 of these (from another vendor, sorry newegg) to put into the telco closet at some of our branch offices where the cable internet service doesn't completely go down, but slows to a crawl with packet loss. Power-cycling the cable modem restores performance, but the telco closets are locked to everyone but I.T. staff. We (I.T.) had to drive to a problem location just to pull the plug for 10 seconds-- a total waste of time for an already under-staffed department These little gems were the perfect solution, and have saved us at least a dozen trips to remote field offices over the past year.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Belkin Home/Office BE106000-10 6-Outlets Surge Suppressor
Pros: Has a long cord and distributes power. What else can you say about a Plain Jane power strip?
Also, the power switch is slightly recessed on the side instead of the top, making it less likely to get bumped and accidentally turned off or on..
Cons: None really. Doesn't generate power for free?
Other Thoughts: Most power strips on store shelves have 2, 3, or 6 foot cords. The 10' cord on this unit comes in handy for longer reaches, without needing an extension cord.READ FULL REVIEW
