TP-LINK SafeStream TL-ER6020 Gigabit Dual-WAN VPN Router 2 x 10/100/1000Mbps WAN Ports 2 x 10/100/1000Mbps LAN Ports
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solidly built, great for remote office installs, more than enough horsepower to be an effective VPN host, especially as a back-to-back VPN connection. GB interfaces are a big plus. Not at all a UTM, but basic app blocking works reasonably well (Facebook, YouTube, Torrent etc). The price made me fear monthly reboots - I tried one, I liked it, I've bought more over the last 6 months.

Cons: CLI is only there to setup the LAN IP. At least the Web GUI is responsive and fast. VLAN support is physical port based, not 802.1q, so not cool for bigger networks. No IPv6 support YET.

Other Thoughts: For what it is, this is a fine small office/remote office router. It's at least 30% less expensive than the next closest competitive product, the gap might be more than that.

LEXMARK MS310d Workgroup Up to 35 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Big printer, small price 10/24/2013

This review is from: LEXMARK MS310d Workgroup Up to 35 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: This seems to be the Lexmark replacement for the 260/360/460 series of printers. I bought an MS610dn as an upgrade to the very good E462dtn last fall and it has been a horse. The MS310d is best suited for a single user with heavy printing needs - specifically our accounting department people - and when they went on sale I bought two. The performance is excellent and the consumables costs are reasonable.

Cons: Not a con as much as a feature not paid for - the network interface available on some models. I don't use peer-to-peer print sharing, it's not worth the costly management overhead, so this is a standalone printer for my network.

Other Thoughts: I always worry when a new line replaces a known, good, old line of printers. HP has been going downhill for a decade. I'm relieved Lexmark is not cheapening their product line, and in this case "new" means "GOOD."

ASUS Q200E-BHI3T45-B Notebook, B Grade Scratch and Dent Intel Core i3 2365M (1.40GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 3000 11.6
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I dropped an SSD in and installed Windows 8.1 on 10/16. Runs perfectly on this machine, enough CPU and RAM out of the box to be perfectly usable. Screen and touchpad work well enough to make a USB mouse pointless. Smooth graphics and good responsiveness make it a great entry level touchscreen system.

Cons: The battery is not easily replaceable nor the RAM upgradable.

Other Thoughts: I still don't see the utility of Windows 8.1 on the desktop but for field use this is a "super tablet" that lets you get real work done.
