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
This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation N150 Wireless Router - WCR-GN
Pros: After 11 months of service, no real complaints.
Cons: Firmware menus aren't as useful as the DD-WRT firmware Buffalo ships with the HP version of this unit.
Other Thoughts: In addition to this unit, I have several WHR-HP-GN units, which is the high-power big brother to this WCR-GN. The range is somewhat less, and the proprietary Buffalo firmware leaves something to be desired compared to the DD-WRT firmware Buffalo ships on the HP version. For the minimal price difference, my opinion is go with the WHR-HP-GN. But that is more a reflecton on range per dollar spent, and isn't a knock on the quality of this particular model. Useability-wise, this unit is quite reliable and we have zero problems with connection dropouts.READ FULL REVIEW
