This review is from: EnGenius ENS202EXT High-powered/Long-range Wireless N300 Outdoor AP
Pros: Very nice coverage, Easy to set up, PoE is especially convenient. I have a fairly large yard and coverage was always an issue, but now my whole yard and then some is covered. Easily 1 acre coverage.
Cons: Doesn't do 5GHz wireless, but I knew that going into it.
Other Thoughts: I honestly can't see why a bunch of reviews claim this to be difficult to set up. After setting it all up and confirming it was all working properly it confused me even more so I reset it and set it all up again to see if I missed what was supposed to be difficult.
I then reset it again and called tech support to help me. I gave them the run around like an average user that would haunt their tech support days using a few general ideas from a forum with stories about nightmare calls too :) Tech support was also great.
Pros: Fast read/write times, runs really cool, massive single drive storage, Nice 5 year warrant so they must be confident, 128MB cache!
Comes out in Windows as 5.45TB
Throughout testing in Windows 7 Ultimate X64 and Oracle X64 I will be estimating the following in between the two result sets:
Sequential read 224 MB/s
Sequential write: 220 MB/s
Random Read (IOPS): 4010
Random Write (IOPS): 1196
Transfer rates maxed out network speed at 120MB/s
Drive to Drive went over 1 GB/s slowing down towards the end of 7GB to about half of that.
Writing batch files at 30MB block size with a block increase of 2 @ 10 file creates the results are as follows:

Cons: None to speak of. The price is rather high for my tastes, but that'll come down in time.
Other Thoughts: I would absolutely love to have four of these to Raid in my server!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It does pick up more signals. Extended range was quite impressive.
Cons: Speeds while using this are seriously slower than the built in wireless card. This only does the 2.4Ghz band. The antennas stick below the base so it does not sit even.
Other Thoughts: I'm not overly impressed, but if you're having issues getting a signal this can allow you to connect.READ FULL REVIEW
