Pros: 4 Gigabit LAN Ports
Cons: Start at it comes pre-IP'd at 192.168.0.1 - which instantly causes IP conflict. Cannot function as just an access point apparently. Cannot input DHCP relay IP. Doesn't include full manual in the box. Laggy WebUI.
Other Thoughts: I got this to replace / upgrade my D-Link DAP-2553 which was a terrible mistake.
Maybe a good option if you aren't experienced with networking or if you don't have an existing network. If you're particular about your network architecture, avoid this.
Pros: PoE, Range, Simple GUI, save changes for each configuration page and then save configuration and apply allows for single reboot where other brands reboot after saving each page! DHCP RELAY!
Cons: Auto channel doesn't seem too smart.
Other Thoughts: I've actually purchased 6 of these over the past 3 years. The flexible configuration allow it to very strict with security by using ACLs, multi SSID, etc. They can also be used for range extenders and easily act as wireless bolt ons to existing small business or home office network.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Supports RAID - which I do not recommend trying with regular SATA SSDs. Quick responses from tech support.
Cons: I contacted Kingston support before install to make sure RAID was supported. Response: "The drives will work in a RAID configuration but we advise you not to use these drives in an enterprise environment. RAID 0 or 1 would be OK. But if you plan to use SSDs in a server in a RAID 5 or 10 configuration, we suggest you use our enterprise level SSDs. The biggest differences are the E100 and E50 have much higher endurance and also include power failure support."
Other Thoughts: I'm just running a home lab server off the 3 drive RAID 5. I don't imagine power loss to be a major problem as I'm only running about 30 VMs. I had previously used a group of standard Seagate SATA SSDs and the RAID keeps dropping. I figured that with SSDs being non spinning, error-recover required for RAID striping would be part of any drive's firmware, but it's not. Manufacturer's still produce two separate firmware sets so they can charge $60 more per drive for the enterprise class that comes with the firmware. There used to be a Western Digital tool to load the TLER firmware, but that disappeared when they went to color coding.READ FULL REVIEW
