This review is from: Rosewill RHAI-13001. 1800-Watt Induction Cooker Cooktop with Stainless Steel Pot
Pros: I have owed/used 5 induction cookers. This one has the best design and quality. 1800 Max power is far sufficient to handle all scenarios. The touching keypad is sensitive and have longer life than membrane keypad. Very satisfied with the build quality and price.
Other Thoughts: I only use it for 1 month so far. I'm not sure how long will it last.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: inexpensive, supported by ddrwt
Cons: not long lasting. kinda unreliable
Other Thoughts: This is a update for my review on 2/5/2014. After running stably for 2 years, it start to ramdonly stuck and need reboot almost every day.
After I flash it using DD-WRT firmware, router won't be dead everyday, but it is unstable and short time disconnect with device after running for more than 1 day. I finally work around it by using cron job to reboot it every day automatically. and it may be fair to increase rating from 2 to 3 eggs.
For everyone who don't want to spend extra money on a new router and risk another unstable router. Try following steps to work around it.
1. update it with dd-wrt firmwire. There is multiple version of 841nd, so don't use wrong firmware.
2. In the dd-wrt web interfaces, administration->management, scroll down, you will see a section for cron, add following line here
30 2 * * * root /sbin/reboot
This line will reboot router at 2:30 am every day. you can put whatever time you want.
3. click "save" button at the bottom of page.
Pros: cheap, easy to setup. signal is good, stable for just 2 years.
Cons: After putting in use for almost 2 years, it begins to die. It randomly halt within 24 hours and I have to reboot it every day. It's fair for a $23 router working for 2 years, but I know a lot of similar cheap router lasting much longer time.
Other Thoughts: I'm some disappointed because it was stable for 2 years and just passed the 2-year-warrety.
I tried to use different channel IDs and updated to latest official firmware. None of above could save it.
