Cons: Bought a couple of months ago to replace another drive that was getting full. I went to replace the full drive with this one and it would not format and gave a cyclic redundancy check. I've bought a lot of hard drives and I think this was my first that didn't even work out of the box, and now to RMA it to WD I have to pay shipping for their defective product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive, small, accepts DD-WRT
Cons: Price keeps going up
Other Thoughts: I recently purchased a "wi-fi ready" blu-ray player that required a hundred dollar proprietary wi-fi adapter to take advantage of wireless capabilities. I bought one of these, installed DD-WRT, and now I can stream Netflix, Pandora, etc. to my bedroom for a quarter of the cost with a very strong signal.
I purchased another one for a friend recently and the price had gone up about ten dollars and was thinking about getting another one and now the price is almost 30% higher than when I bought the first one less than a month ago. Of course it includes a "free" wi-fi adapter that I don't need. The reason I want to buy the router is to use it as a repeater bridge, DOH!
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-639GR Wireless Gigabit Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps
Pros: Strong wireless signal, easy to set up. Works great if you don't want to use wireless.
Cons: Wireless signal drops constantly, poor support from Trendnet, menus dumbed down from my previous Trendnet router (TEW-639GR).
Other Thoughts: I've bought three items from Trendnet, two routers and one wireless card and 2 out of 3 had to be RMA'd. Both times the Trendnet "tech support" was less than helpful. Here is a direct quote from their communication with me:
"What I am saying is that this is not a function of the router at all. The signal strength to the router and connectivity to the router plays no role in if your computers "see" each other on a local area network. They are not related at all.
Can each of those computers access the Internet? If so, they are properly connected to the router. Traffic is successfully routed through the unit properly.
Setting up a local area network so your computers "see" each other is a function of your operating systems. "
My network worked fine before I installed this router, and it works fine now that I replaced it with a $28 D-Link router. The router doesn't have anything to do with my computers seeing each other on the network? Really?
