TRENDnet TE100-S50G Smart GREENnet Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Built like a brick 01/26/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TE100-S50G Smart GREENnet Switch

Pros: All metal construction. Has some heft to it. Lights are not too bright

Cons: Can't handle 1 Gb speed, but for my purposes not needed. If you want 1 Gb speed, get the TEG-S50G model.

Other Thoughts: Bought this switch for the entertainment center to split the network connection between the PS3 and video streamer box. It does the job that a switch should do. What really impresses me about the unit is the construction. The case is all metal. When you hold it in your hand it feels like a paper weight. This helps eliminate the issue of the attached cords tugging the box all over the place.

D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Liked it so much, I bought another. Well the first router fried after Zeus released his wrath (lighting). But, seriously the wireless connection reaches all corners of my house and it is 3,200 sq feet. Only the far corners of my home it goes down to 2 bars. The first router would occasionally need to be reset, but the second one never remember the need to. Wish my internet provider was more reliable.

Cons: Those blue lights are bright. It is like a laser show when the lights are out. Not worth taking an egg off for.

Other Thoughts: On both times I ordered, New Egg's shipping is top notch.

D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works great with my sons PS3 hooked with the wireless connection. Rarely does he complain about dropped connections. Also have 3 desktops and a network enabled printer hooked up to the wired ports with no problems at all. Finally the laptop I used from work uses the wireless connection and through out most of the house I get 4 bars. Only in the far corners of the house I get 3 bars. We live in a fairly large home (3200 sq ft)

Cons: The antennas fit rather loosely and don't stay in position, but does not seem to have an adverse effect on the wireless range.

Other Thoughts: Sometimes this router is on sale for < $50. It is a great deal at this price.
