This review is from: Ubiquiti ERLite-3 Edgemax EdgeRouter Lite-3 3x Gigabit LAN Ports
Pros: I own 2 of these and I have to say I have been very impressed. As others have said, is based off of Vyatta (now VyOS) with a very Juniper'ish CLI. These routers have out performed many of our Cisco boxes, we are about to deploy several of these at branch offices. Features I'm using are: WAN Load balancing, Clustering / HA, OSPF routing, DHCP, DSN, Vlans / VIF, link bonding, OpenVPN tunneling, and more!
Cons: Ubiquiti changed some of the CLI commands from the base Vyatta/VyOS image, but not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended. Learn the CLI! It's very simple!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ships with 2 gigabit Intel nics, and easily expandable to 5 for another $60 daughter card add on. I personally own 4 of these motherboards (the JNF99FL's) and they have all worked fantastic as NAS's and routers. I am using this at the office I work at as our primary router and firewall, which allows us to split our internet connection off to some of the other tenants renting space in the same building. We all save $$ and get a much faster connection speed! I used dedicated NICs for each tenant, but you could achieve the same thing with VLANs and a single LAN port.
Cons: I really wish the PCI slot was a PCIe! I can never get enough SATA or Ethernet...
Other Thoughts: PS: You can actually use 8GB of DDR3 memory in these motherboards, even though they only say 4GB. Works great with ZFS on FreeBSD!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing speed. My boot time went from 45 seconds to 15 seconds to get to the login screen in OSX. After login, applications relaunch simultaneously and finish in 20 seconds or so. Before with the stock HD, it took about a minute for everything to settle. Easy install, replaced the HD perfectly.
Cons: None. Best upgrade I've made.
Other Thoughts: Currently in the primary drive bay in an Apple MacBook Pro 13" unibody purchased in mid 2011. Before the SSD, I upgraded the RAM to 16GB, and the SSD I much more noticeable of an upgrade. I was able to clone my old HD to the SSD and replace the DVD drive with the HD. The SSD backups to the old HD, in case of any failures do I can immediately boot off the backup.READ FULL REVIEW
