Pros: Price. This little guy has a bunch of features for its price compared to the competition. You can't find a 48-port PoE layer-3 switch for this value. It has enterprise networking features you need to manage traffic in a small-medium business environment. Flow control, QoS, VLANs, routing and ACLs -- everything you need to segment your network and stop chatty machines from bringing it to a crawl.
Cons: Here's the kicker: the UI is slow, buggy and NETGEAR doesn't care. It throws JS errors in every modern browser. Netgear recommends (get this...) that you use *IE8* in 2014; they say other browsers "are not supported." Many features are unusable unless you keep an old browser/VM around for the express purpose of managing your switch 0.o. That's inexcusable and tacky.
For that matter, their support is terrible. They implement QoS in a weird way on this switch, so I called for help. I waited a month for them to reply to me with an inconclusive answer. When I figured out they didn't know how to use their own hardware, I finally just did trial and error until I verified the correct tagging of my traffic with a packet monitor. Problem solved in a day.
Other Thoughts: The switch is okay and all four are still working after a year running 24/7. I admit though, I would easily spend the extra money for better support, a richer feature set, and a stable UI if I had to do it over again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: + Ability to function as wireless & wired.
+ Great tracking, low friction, ergonomic shape, comfortable!
+ Plenty of buttons!
Cons: - Battery life is poor in normal performance mode, and worse on max. Max is preferred for online FPS.
- I ***suspect*** there is no auto-shutoff for battery charging, evidenced by the short lifespan of the batteries I put in it.
- The wired cable is extremely stiff and creates too much resistance for gaming. Replace with a thinner micro-USB cable.
- THE REAL KILLER: custom mapping software does not always detect the mouse when it is in wireless mode, making this a rather useless "wireless" mouse. This is an unacceptable software bug Logitech is clearly in no hurry to fix.
Other Thoughts: Although this is in many ways an excellent mouse, I will go for another brand next time:
+ This mouse was expensive, and I can't use my profiles in wireless mode. Logitech has yet to issue a software/firmware fix after months on the market.
+ The last two iterations of the Logitech Setpoint software suffered from extremely irritating, long-lived software bugs that were never fixed and reduced the functionality of the mouse and or computer it was used on. I see this version of Setpoint is also a disappointment so far.
+ My last three mice have all been Logitech gaming series mice, and they all started having physical problems after 1-2 years of normal use (not transported, treated kindly, no spills, etc).
I'll come back to Logitech when they've got some better quality control. Sorry Logi, you've dropped the ball again.
This review is from: Philips Norelco NT9130/40 D-finer Precision trimmer
Pros: + Very long battery life: I bought this in November, use it a few times a week and still haven't had to replace the batteries yet.
+ Love the case, great for organization
+ Gentle on the face, easy to replace tips.
Cons: The blade of the nose & ear-hair trimmer is recessed, probably to protect the sensitive tissue in those areas. As a result, you'll have to use a little extra pressure to get to the small hairs in those places. It's a very minor complaint, but could bother some a little.
Other Thoughts: I'd buy another again in a secondREAD FULL REVIEW
