Pros: Small. Easy to assemble. You only have to add a Hard drive, Optical Drive if you need one, and a Stick or 2 of desktop DDR2 memory. Opened box, added hd, and memory. 5 minutes I was installing an OS. Have to say that was easy.
Cons: Case fan is a little loud. Fan is louder than normal im sure because of smaller size trying to move more air. You could change out the fan if you wanted.
Overall Review: Fan is located on top if standing the case up. Good design so as to have good airflow and minimize heat build up in the case. Over all great price for a great little pc.
Pros: Bought 2 of these as a wireless bridge setup. They are very easy to setup if you have some basic knowledge about networking and wireless. Had them both working in minutes. One as a wap and the other as a client bridge. Achieving 100mbps transfer over the connection.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Each device contains a 24v poe injector if you switch does now offer that.
just a note
Pros: The same pro's as below. Very well designed. Sticker on top says made in Germany. I can tell.
Cons: The only con that I see so far is the power supply. It is proprietary and has unique plugs on the motherboard the way it moves power from one plug to another output plug that powers all the drives. The only thing that scares me when it goes out where do I get another and how much will it cost. Besides that it is a perfect design.
Perfect WAP for the price.
Pros: Simple to setup. Comes with poe if you want to use it. I configured with firefox 3.6.12 and web interface is flawless. All the settings would ask for and more.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: I think alot of people that leave bad comments are the ones use to running a cd to help them setup there new items. When the auto cd doesnt work then they get frustrated and leave bad feedback. I did not use the cd. I just read the manual for the default ip address so that I could access the web interface and everything else is history. I rarely leave feedback and just wanted to say from my experience this item has worked perfect so far.
Great performance and features for the price
Pros: Removable antennas make it easy to add high-gain directional antennas for special applications -Easy to set up through web interface -Includes PoE (power over ethernet) injector, which is a cool feature for a product in this price range -Good signal strength and range
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: I really don't like it when people rate a product lower than it deserves just because it doesn't include some feature it never claimed to have in the first place (in this case, 5GHz and gigabit support). I challenge you to find more than a handful of access points that support gigabit ethernet--it is not necessary for wireless APs.
