Pros: Not sure I can list a pro, except maybe the budget price. But, if it's not reliable, even if it's free, it's not worth it.
Cons: I've had this drive for around 4 months when it failed on a 3 year warranty. WD/HGST did accept it for an RMA, and it took 3 weeks without a drive for a replacement to arrive. In less than 3 days of use after receiving the replacement, it's now failed again.
I'm probably not going to bother going back through warranty again. I'll have to purchase a replacement from someone else (and WD/HGST will not get my business back.)
Pros: Fairly painless out of the box setup. Easy navigation on the configuration interface.
Cons: No offline configuration, the initial setup wizard requires that it be connected in place before you can get to the main configuration.
Configuration hangs in the DHCP configuration screen through a browser, it's usable through the Asus router configuration utility.
You cannot configure non-standard ports in the NAT/QoS Port Forwarding screen. They're silently dropped after a save/apply. For me, this is a show stopper.
Other Thoughts: I've gotten around the port forwarding issue, but the solution would break the review guidelines. Mine is no longer running Asus firmware.
For the majority of the users, this should be a very usable router. For those of use with more advanced requirements, I'd look elsewhere. I don't think I'm going to return the 2 that I've purchased, but I will not be purchasing any more.
I've only given 3 out of 5 eggs as a result of the firmware problems. Most users will simply never see what I've encountered.
This review is from: BlueAnt T2 Endure Black Rugged Bluetooth Headset
Pros: Noise cancelling seems to be good to very good
Cons: The environment where I was planning on using this headset is a noisy diesel truck. Personally, I have 2 major issues, the second is actually related to the first.
1) I can't seem to get the headset to seat properly in my ear, with any of the 5 tips. It never seals properly against my ear for more than a few seconds. This may also be a side effect of wearing glasses, the temple keeps the ear loop on the headset pushed out a little. I have to be very careful to grasp the forward half of the headset to try to adjust it's position during a call, if I get the rear half, the call drops.
2) Under conditions other than on the road with the truck, volume is acceptable. I've used other headsets for months to years without issue, this headset is nearly unusable due to this & #1.
Other Thoughts: I may consider another BlueAnt product in the future, at the moment, I'll probably just sell this one at a loss.READ FULL REVIEW
