Pros: Worked on my Raspberry Pi right out of the box. They are using a Realtek component so the drivers were already in the Raspberry Pi distribution.
Cons: Did I mention there is no way to configure the blue LED from flashing. You have to rebuild the driver (uggh) to turn out the LED. Yeah, the next suggestion would be to use black electrical tape. How about Edimax just giving a userspace setting?
Pros: It was inexpensive.
Cons: This is the only SD card that failed on me. I am skeptical at this point, it failed with minimal use.
Pros: Small, Quiet, Power Supply Included. I have two (2) of these units. Chose low power i3 CPU(s). One is running OSX, the other is running VoIP (TrixBox). Love these units, would buy another again.
Cons: Like others have mentioned, they are tight. As long as you take the time to keep your cables neat, there shouldn't be any problem.
Pros: 1. Small
2. Like the stow-away plug.
Cons: Not really a big con for the size but only outputs 750/ma which is enough for smart phones and other low power devices. Not enough juice to charge an iPad. Not a deal breaker.
Pros: Not much to setup other than calling your ISP and registering the new MAC address.
Cons: Would have preferred black instead of white.
Overall Review: Was dreading calling Comcast. Was surprised that the stateside person that helped me completed the whole task in less than 5/min. Would have done it myself but self registration page was not reachable.
Pros: Fast. Easy to setup. Small and no obvious once you turn off the LED(s).
Cons: Folks complain about the UI but for an AP, it works well to get it configured. It's not like it's an email client.
Overall Review: Bought two (2) and wanted more but the special deal was over. Maybe again someday I'll pick up a few more.
Pros: Easy to setup. Scant app that calls VLC had an outstanding picture quality.
Cons: Limited application connectivity outside of the dialer that calls VLC under OSX/10.6+. As a backend to MythTV it is very slow and sluggish and at times choppy even on a home GigaBit lan. Used on COMCAST, initial provisioning from COMCAST only configured basic service not the higher channel package but if it worked I'd then get COMCAST to provision it correctly. Never got to that point. Hoped I could use the HDHomeRun Prime to circumvent the COMCAST HD tax, didn't work. Also would not run with Elgato EyeTV client which was dissapointing because I'd have rather use Elgato to schedule recording over MythTV.
Pros: Didn't want to be left out. I to have bought both new and used many of these routers. Have used them on many projects and all have proven flawless. Don't know why Cisco ever thought the FLYING-SAUCER's they are currently building with poor cooling could beat the gold standard.
Cons: Cisco/Linksys should revive this line and build them with more NVRAM which is cheap these days.
