Pros: Excellent basic router. 5Mhz and 2.4Mhz setup is easy. uPNP (for direct wired XBOX to use XBOXLIVE) is easy to set up and works great. Likewise MagicJack setup.
Great performance and OK range in the high bands. Great features for the very technically competent.
Cons: No manual with router or on website. Only a quick setup doc available. Cannot get a separate secure internet accessible wireless service up. Apparently iptable postrouting is not functioning properly. However can create the separate WLAN, and it can access DNS and DHCP properly, just can't get internet traffic.
Other Thoughts: Has the potential to be a great router. Would love to get the issue with the separate WLAN internet access resolved as this worked well with the Buffalo router this one replaced. Only resources are on DD-WRT wiki and they are thin to say the least. Performance is great, stable for the minimal features I am using at this time (AC, N/G WLANs with WPA2/WPA security).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Zero issues. Works as advertised and then some (see previous review (perfect infrastructure server). Has been working flawlessly for several months in my virtual lab. Quiet, powerful. Did an upgrade to Hyper-V 2012 R2, which was problematic, but it all worked out in the end. And the ability to replicate is a lifesaver. Doesn't get better than this. Have relegated SAN to backups and doc storage only.
Cons: Have had a bit of trouble finding a cheap appropriate NIC for the free PCI slot.
Other Thoughts: Given that Newegg had a sale on large SSDs, changed sever storage from single SSD and SAN to all SSD (1 64GB+ and 1 TB each node). Boot-ups (for virtual clients and the server itself after POST) are usually under 10 seconds, and with 4 servers on each, and replication between the nodes, am using less than 10% of CPU resources.READ FULL REVIEW
