Pros: Fast, Outstanding range.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I'm having trouble understanding why some folks are having issues with this router. I purchased this unit to replace my trusty WRT54GL which just doesn't have the power to handle my 105mbps downstream speed from Comcast in Connecticut. (The most I was getting was 40-45mbps with the WRT54GL) I have had no issues with the WRT1900AC whatsoever. The Wi-Fi range is outstanding, I'm getting my full downstream speed, and the web interface could not be snappier. I did not buy from Newegg only because this unit is still relatively new and the price is the same wherever you go and I wanted it the same day : ) Nothing against Newegg at all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP J9561A#ABA Smart Gigabit Ethernet Switch 1410-24G
Pros: My first HP switch, I've had this switch for a couple months now running 24/7 and it's been great. No management features, which is what I was looking for, (my network is very simple and straightforward, so any management done by the switch is entirely unnecessary.) sturdy metal casing, no wall wart, and of course wonderful fanless silence. It's nice having all of the status lights in one area, although some may find this as a con. Can't beat the warranty either.
Cons: I have to say I was a bit bummed that the switch I received does not have any of the ProCurve markings as shown in the images. I'm not taking any eggs away since this doesn't detract from the functionality of the switch or the warranty. Everything else is identical though.
Other Thoughts: With the warranty this unit comes with I'm expecting it to have higher quality and a more solid build than similar switches. I can't imagine HP would want to spend too much money overnighting these things all over if they were to fail easily. Also, it was nice of HP to include the angled power as where I've placed this there isn't much room behind the switch.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Print quality
-Speed, including time to print first page coming off of standby.
-Ease of use and set up
Cons: -Web interface doesn't work. Entering the printer's IP into my browser brings up a page directing me to HP's site.
-Status light flashes while on standby, may be annoying to some.
-Creaky, plasticy feel but that's to be expected for the price.
-Display isn't back-lit
Other Thoughts: This printer does everything I need it to. I don't do a lot of printing by any means. Maybe 30 pages a month, so practically nothing. All I need is a printer/copier that sits quietly in the corner until I need it, and when I need it it needs to work without issues which this printer has succeeded in doing so far. I'm not sure why some folks are having issues with print quality, I've had no issues at all. The print quality is no different than any other Mono Laser I've used. Not sure of the volume of jobs these other users have though.
I did not use any of the included CD's upon setting up the printer. I plugged it into my router, gave it a static IP, and added it as a standard TCP/IP port for each computer that will be using it and everything worked out fine. The manual does talk about a web interface for the unit, which doesn't work on mine. I'm sure a firmware upgrade would fix the problem as others have had to do but so far this thing does everything I need so I'm not messing around with that. Network printing works as it should though.
The copy function works well the few times I've used it. I do have this hooked up to my phone line for the few times a year I need a fax machine but I've yet to give it a try so I'm not sure how it will do.
All in all this is a good printer. If you need a multifunction unit but don't want it to be tied to a PC, this machine is a good buy.
