NETGEAR ProSAFE GS748T V5 48-Port Gigabit Smart Switch 10/100/1000Mbps
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Inexpensive but Unreliable 11/17/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR ProSAFE GS748T V5 48-Port Gigabit Smart Switch 10/100/1000Mbps

Pros: Inexpensive 48-port gigabit switch. Easy setup.

Cons: Ports go dead. Network devices show activity but there is no network traffic flowing through that port. This happened less than seven months after using this switch. Switch has been OK after a firmware update though.

Other Thoughts: Other Netgear devices recently purchased have also been unreliable. Very disappointed in their products.

StarTech 2 Port Native PCI Express RS232 Serial Adapter Card with 16550 UART Model PEX2S553
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Does Not Work in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit 12/09/2013

This review is from: StarTech 2 Port Native PCI Express RS232 Serial Adapter Card with 16550 UART Model PEX2S553

Pros: We have used this serial card in many PCs using Windows XP Pro as well as Windows 7 Pro -- both 32-bit. Has both full profile and low profile brackets in same box.

Cons: This card does not work properly in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit mode. The card goes dormant after 15 minutes. We use a key reading device with its own memory resident software. When the card goes dormant, the key reading device stops working. If you terminate the software and use the DOS command mode, the serial port will respond to you. Re-loading the software afterwards does not let the device work though. The PC has to be restarted. Ended up pulling these serial cards and using a serial port adapter cable from the PC manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: Did speak to StarTech technical support but they wanted loopback tests done -- we didn't have anything to do that with. The PC manufacturer sent us a serial comm port adapter cable to connect to the motherboard and allow for a serial comm port interface on the case. This worked fine. Never had a problem afterwards with the serial port going dormant.

HAWKING HMPS2U Wireless-N Multifunction USB Printer & Device Server 802.11b/g/n, RJ45 4 x USB 2.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Setup Nightmare Re-Visited Many Times 10/14/2013

This review is from: HAWKING HMPS2U Wireless-N Multifunction USB Printer & Device Server 802.11b/g/n, RJ45 4 x USB 2.0

Pros: When working, it does provide a stable connection.

Cons: We had had this device for less than six months, and it has finally decided to quit. It was a pain to setup, and now we cannot even access the setup even when it is defaulted. Getting this device connected on any kind of secured wifi is a chore. When a laptop or PC is plugged into it RJ45 jack, the wifi cannot be tested. The laptop or PC needs to be disconnected from the device, and then you can try pinging it or trying to reach it via its software. We has also had to go through the setup several times before when it just stops working -- usually after a pair of months.

Other Thoughts: There are no other wireless USB print server choices unless you buy something refurbished.
