Pros: At first, this router was awesome, now it is terrible. The fan died, and caused the router to overheat.
While I had the router working, it was great, I loved the 7 ports, also I loved the device's website for it's settings. It was an awesome router, until the fan went out on me.
Cons: Overheats quite a bit, built with a cheap fan. Fan will not last long. While working it was an excellent router, and had great signal strength.
Other Thoughts: Before the fan failed, this was one of the best routers I've had. I only gave two eggs, since it was a good router before, but then less than a year after owning it, the fan dies, thus causing the already hot router to crash. WD seems to have a pretty good grasp of how to make a router for the purposes you would use it for, but the hardware seems to be lacking. The wireless worked great, but the wired LANs and the internal fan, seem to have been built very cheaply. I would not suggest this generation of router to anyone to use, since it did not even make it one year. I've seen many reviews now, after 8 months of owning the router, saying that the fan died and caused the router to overheat. Please do not buy this shellshocker, untill WD gets a better fan to add to this router. When they do, i might look into getting another one. Untill then, I'm back to the much more old school technology of 54 Mbps Linksys router. Before the WD router, I had a Trendnet router for a short time, and it was terrible, then before that one I had a Microsoft router. This router was the best router that I've ever owned, for it's reliability. It may not have been as fast and have as many features as the WD router, but it would last year after year. It lasted me a total of 12 years. For $300 at that time, it was worth it. The speed was 54 Mbps, but it could last through any storm. Great router, great times.
Finishing up my review, the WD router was a good router while it was working, if you think you can get a router with a decent fan, or try a cooling mat underneath the router, then this router will work to your command, and have great speed. I enjoyed it. Now, I'm trying similar technology to my old and faithful Microsoft router, and hope it works for as long as it did. All and all, I could have gave 3 eggs, but I decided not to, since it did not even make it for one year.
Finally, you can see my initial review that I posted within one month after purchasing the router, under the same nickname for this review. I gave it 5 eggs at that time, but as you can see now, it has dropped in my approval for it.
This review is from: LINKSYS EZXS88W Smart Switch
Pros: - Great Switch, Easy Setup
- Works with all devices, (Smart TV, Win7 PCs, Android OS devices, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS)
- Of course half of what I listed above is connected wirelessly through the 54 MBps Linksys Wireless router
- It is simply plug n' play, and it will work well with any router, simply flawless.
- Seems to be built sturdy, so should be reliable for the long run
- Comes with software for any information or driver installation that you may need, but most likely not, it should work as plug n' play and you are ready to go.
Cons: - None, it stays a little warm, but that is expected.
Other Thoughts: Great switch, for any home network.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This mouse is a great mouse for just about anything you need to use it for. I've had it for about 2 months now, and it is a charm. My old mouse finally went out on me after 4 years, which was an Acer mouse. Now that I have this one, it seems that it will be quite a long time, until I have to get another one.
Cons: None, unless you do not like wired.READ FULL REVIEW
