This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N4 IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless-N 2.0 Gigabit Router (2T3R) Up to 300Mbps Data Rates/ WPA Personal and Enterprise, WPA2, 64 & 128 bit WEP, PSK, TKIP, AES Security/ Stream Engine Inside/ Blue LED Indicator
Pros: Everything seems to work when its working, lots of features. I got 2 of them, one is a bridge other is router. Small.
Cons: The router locks up, drops all the network connections and I have to go downstairs and unplug it to reset. This has happened a few times. The one that is a bridge has been doing fine. I have the newest firmware 1.2.06, 2009/03/16. I seriously doubt Replacing the unit is going to fix this problem. Is extremely hot.
Other Thoughts: I have Verizon DSL on DHCP, had to wait a few hours after plugging in for the network to accept the new router, this is normal any time you replace a router in my area unless you copy your old router MAC. MY old WRT54g with dd-wrt firmware never had to be reset, but it also didn't support 1Gbps. Looks like im going to have to put my dd-wrt in front of the internet and see if the rnx-n4 can stay running that way.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: QNAP TS-201 2-Bay, RAID 1 Hot Swappable All-in-One NAS
Pros: Everything works. Easy to use. Can do more things than the average user will ever need but just in case there they are! Backup your files and never worry due to the Raid 1 if you use it,please do. It's a mini server, not very powerful but WAY up to the task of the average user. My Xbox 360 loves this thing, easily getting at my saved movies and family pictures. It will even download your torrents for you saving the energy of a PC running while you sleep. It has a sleep mode, it has auto Hard drive shutdown after 30 mins built in. Its only 60 watts to run it, thats probably about 300 watts less than your computer takes and even less when it shuts off the hard drives which consume most of the power. For Backup of your important files the home user couldn't do better with two 500 gig hard drives or even bigger in raid 1. Even shares your printer over the network if you plug it in.
Cons: I don't really have anything to complain about since it serves as a network backup device with outstanding reliability. Plus throws in alot of other things like a multimedia server, web server, bit torrent download server and more.
Other Thoughts: The Twonky media server is a real bonus if you have devices plugged into your network that can access it such as an Xbox360. This little thing has transformed our household computer use and we rely heavily on it and it has performed admirably.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Makes a great loaf of bread. What more can you ask for?
Cons: No interior light, how to use tutorial video is on VHS tape... I threw away all my VHS tape players years ago. Can you even buy them anymore? Very strange.
Other Thoughts: Cleans up easy. Recipes that come with it work great.READ FULL REVIEW
