ZyXEL ZyWALL ZWUSG20W 802.11n Wireless Internet Security Firewall with 4 Gigabit LAN / DMZ Ports, 2 IPSec VPN, SSL VPN , and 3G WAN Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I do not know networking well and wanted to set up a VPN between my wife's store and our home network in order to monitor some cameras, sales etc.

I have enough knowledge to set up my own wireless network at home. The Zyxell tech support walked me through all of the rest. It took a while to set up, but they were patient with both the cameras and some special firewall rules I needed.

I would not be able to tell the difference between this and any number of other routers... I just don't have the knowledge. The tech support, however, was outstanding. I will buy all my future routers from Zyxel.

Cons: Interface is challenging to those who are ignorant of network setup. Fortunately the tech support is excellent.

5 out of 5 eggs Good learners camera 03/30/2013

This review is from: Canon EOS REBEL T3i 5169B005 Black 18.0 MP DSLR

Pros: Easy to learn to use for someone new to DSLR. The camera body has some high quality lens which can upgrade to future camera bodies. The programming options are easy for me to use, and monochrome in particular looks excellent. It's also easy for me to play with aperture or shutter speed depending on the need. I used the camera in Yellowstone and the only problem was the cheap filters I bought to go with it. Seems kind of silly on my part to spend $1400 on camera equipment and $1.99 on filters. Does great (for my expectation) at capturing wildlife. I have many good photos of birds in flight captured at a high speed... image is crisp.

Cons: None. I am not a professional and this is my first non point and shoot camera (though it has a point and shoot mode).

Other Thoughts: Purchase a back up battery and a couple of large memory cards to go with it. The batteries last a long time, but after a bunch of photos (300+) it could wear down. I've taken it through a couple of national parks and between two batteries and two 32GB flash cards never had an issue with power or memory. The software that comes with it is not useful to me... I think it is for more advanced users. I end up using the std MS Office offering.

Logitech G400 Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 3600 dpi Gaming Mouse

3 out of 5 eggs Good mouse, Skimpy Wire 03/30/2013

This review is from: Logitech G400 Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 3600 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: I've used several Logitech gaming mouses and they all work well for games like WOW, SC,TES etc. They seem to last about 2-3 years of fairly heavy use. As long as it is not on a shiny surface, it works and feels good.

Cons: Skimpy wire. The mouse wire just feels cheap compared to the slightly more expensive version of the same mouse. The wire is quite long and I need to pin it under my lap top.
