Pros: If you are replacing an existing router, this one goes in in 10 minutes (I even relocated it). My devices all connect at the same speeds (my previous router was an N), but the connections are quicker and it doesn't seem to mind when everyone is accessing it together for streaming.
Cons: It's big and quite tall since it sits vertically (only) and the three antennae are on top. It's heft and rubbery plastic feet keep it planted, though.
Other Thoughts: Not much to say as it was almost too easy. Your web browser immediately goes to the GUI and the settings are easy to make. If you are putting this in an open area it will be the first thing everyone notices due to it size and the three antennae on top. Hiding this unit is the hardest thing you will do. I replaced my N router as my family is constantly streaming with Fire TV box, tablets, smartphones, a laptop, and a desktop. I also have two wireless printers. The streaming was interrupting to catch up before. Now everything runs together without a problemREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Makes a single mug of coffee. Doesn't need "cups". You can grind your own, or use already ground coffee at the proportions you like. Doesn't need paper filters as it has its own impermanent filter. Turns itself off when done. It is FAST. CHEAP compared to the cheapest cup brewer.
Cons: Cannot use paper filter in place of the permanent one, so you get more sediment. Easy to miss reservoir with water if you are groggy in the morning.
Other Thoughts: I has a Melitta Take 2, which was nicer. It started to leak and I replaced it with this in my office. My home Take 2 is still going strong after 5 years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great battery life (8+ hours). Runs everything we need it to run. Easy to upgrade memory although it only takes 2GB max. Relatively easy to swap HDD. Runs Windows 7 RC and only needs Broadcom Bluetooth driver and Atheros wireless driver which you can download from the vendors (Asus only has XP drivers). Wireless N works great (WPA/WPA2 AES)!
Cons: Lately Asus has been partitioning the hard drives (in half) for recovery and use Windows PE and Ghost, which goofed up imaging with our Altiris DS software. I had to use Partition Magic to get full use of the hard drive. Odd since they provide a recovery DVD. Lots of bloatware to uninstall now too. Tried to run eeebuntu or Ubuntu, but too much trouble trying to get the wireless to work.
Other Thoughts: Our college priced comparable netbooks and Asus won hands down. It's specs beat all others. If you can option others up to this one, the cost almost doubles. We can replace it with a new one if destroyed or lost and still come out ahead. 1/3 the price of our Dell Latitudes. If you buy one uninstall all the junk. Picasa (free from Google) makes the webcam work nicely for snaps or vids.READ FULL REVIEW
