Pros: I picked up this print server several years ago and it worked great but recently it had to reconfigure it for Windows 7 operation. The old software will not run on newer windows versions but you can set the PS by going into your router and finding the IP it addresses the PS with then going to the settings for static IP and referencing the static IP the PS has to the one the router assigns it. Works great on the old HP Laserjet 4 now as a network printer. D-link site offers little on this tidbit.
Cons: Older technology that works but you need to be willing to work the issues with Windows Vista or Windows 7. Expect it to add a few inches for clearance where the parallel port connects.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sharp R-530EW 2.0 cu. ft. 1200W Full-Size Countertop Microwave
Pros: We found this Sharp microwave to be very similar to our ten year old Sharp microwave which we loved. The unit has a large cavity, an upgrade to our previous unit and is a bit quieter than the previous generations. More features on the control screen, many which we still have to try or at least get our kids to try. The unit looks good on the kitchen counter and the door release and latch feel firm crisp. Food has heated well with no complaints. Fast shipping by Newegg and very pleased with order process. We found the microwave to perform well the first month now and hope for another ten or more years from this unit.
Cons: We purchased the 530 over the 520 due as one other review mentioned the door did not close properly and the unit had to be returned. Our unit arrived and the door did not close or align properly. The packaging and shipping looked fine. After a small tug upward on the door to "reset" the hinge alignment, the door aligned fine and we did not return the unit. The door has stayed aligned since. Stronger hinges brackets may help Sharp reduce this nuisance issue but really not an issue once you tug on it upward.
Other Thoughts: After reviewing so many other brands and reviews we decided to stay with Sharp since our last one lasted a decade. Sharp controls the Magnetron by adjusting the on/off time while some other manufacturers claim to adjust the energy level. This may be a consideration however those other units seemed to have a large percentage of failures in less than two years. May try one of those once the reliability is improved.READ FULL REVIEW
