This review is from: D-Link DSP-W215 Wi-Fi Smart Plug, Thermal Protection, Energy Management
Pros: Easy setup
Nice graphs for power use over time
Ability to set schedules
Check outlet temperature with ability to automatically turn off should the outlet exceed a set temperature.
Remembers WIFI settings if the unit is unplugged or looses power.
Able to set description and icon for type of item the plug powers.
Ability to set power usage warnings and cutoffs.
Cons: Came with outdated firmware
App software is a bit slow
Constantly reminded to log into mydlink if you haven't.
Other Thoughts: My unit had to go through a firmware update before i was even able to use it. While easy as joining it to the network then trying to access it through the phone application it was a slow update process.
Initial setup was smooth from an iPhone5 other than waiting for a response from the device while it joined the network.

Other Thoughts: These have worked very well for me. I am able to get a desktop working in the garage with reliable internet. I would recommend this product if you cant get a cable or wifi to the device needing to be networked.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD My Cloud EX2 4TB Personal Cloud Storage - NAS (WDBVKW0040JCH-NESN)
Pros: Feature Rich
Supports, FTP, AFP, NFS, WebDAV, LLTD, SNMP, SSH, and Dynamic DNS.
Works well with OSX 10.9.2
Works with TimeMachine
Lots of useful config options
Two USB 3.0 ports
Cons: Doesn't play well with all browsers, Firefox being one.
Other Thoughts: So far this has been a great, feature rich NAS drive. Ideally this would be great for a home office or small office environment.
I have had no trouble with Windows 7 or OSX 10.9.2 connecting to the drive or backing up via time machine. The one issue I have is the web interface dose not play nicely with Firefox, some items are unable to be selected. Specifically under settings while in Firefox I was unable to select between General, Network, Media, Utilities, Notifications, and Firmware Update tabs to change settings for the device. This is not an issue under Safari or Internet Explorer.
I really like this product despite the small difficulty I experienced.
