2 ZyXel USG20W Devices
Pros: This is a highly configurable device. The wireless disconnects others report has not happened on either of the 2 usg20w devices that I purchased. Wireless 100% ok here. The interface is quite fast and the dashboard reports cpu and memory usage which comes in handy for me. Using and configuring multiple ssids is a very nice feature. I have connected multiple laptops and several android devices with no issues.
Cons: Casing is plastic. I like metal casing for network gear.
Overall Review: I have only had the my zyxel devices for a couple days but have had no issues with multiple continual network tests, wireless and wired. I set one of these up for a company 2 months ago and was quite taken with it. The company has not had any issues with their network since the purchase. The company does use the wireless connection on many devices. These usg 20w devices are not for people that want to plug it in and be done. Bridging lan with wireless for instance is quick and easy with advanced knowledge of networking but a novice would need a youtube video walk through. I really and still in awe of the object orientated configuration and capabilities for sub $200 device.
Pros: When I purchased the w2230s it was cheap. The kickstand is nice as well as the position of the monitor when the kickstand is used.
Cons: The screen at native resolution is definitely blurry. Text is harder to read than all my other lcd monitors.
Overall Review: The kickstand will not be for everyone but IMO it is nice. I would not buy this again even at the price I bought it for.
Ordered Dell Refurb PC
After ordering 1 computer I waited the 7 business days and called 859-727-4300 to check on the order. The company said it was being shipped out today and it was on the dock. I was told that I would receive a shipping number as soon as the computer went out. The next day there was still no tracking number and I called Blair Technology Group again and was told that it hadn't shipped out yet but it was being shipped out today. Fool me once..... Needless to say I cancelled the order.
