2 out of 5 eggs Half the Advertised Throughput 01/27/2016

This review is from: ZyXEL USG40 Security Firewall w/13 Months UTM

Pros: This is a full featured, albeit a bit complex, firewall/security device. It's extremely flexible and full featured. It has met all of my needs except one.

Cons: The advertised throughput of 400mbps cannot be realized. I've got all UTM services disabled and I'm only using basic firewall functions yet my internet speed is being cut in half. I've contacted Zyxel support and they really haven't provided any solutions, just some basic troubleshooting steps that failed to deliver any improvement.

Below are the consistent results I've observed in my testing. The actual throughput seems to be about 50% of the advertised. Instead of 400mbps through the firewall, it's maxing just below 200mbps.

Speeds before installing Zyxel USG40: Down-387mbps; Up-322mbps
Speeds after installing Zyxel USG40: Down-198mbps; Up-193mbps

Other Thoughts: If I would have known that the advertised speeds weren't accurate, I would have bought the USG60 or the USG110. Now, it looks like I'm buying one of those anyway and I've got a very expensive paper weight (USG40).

1 out of 5 eggs Doesn't Work with CF Cards 12/21/2011

This review is from: Rosewill RDCR-11003 - 3.5" 74-in-1 Internal Card Reader with USB 3.0 Port

Pros: USB 3.0 speed with internal header connector. SD card data transfer seemed to be faster (I haven't had time to measure yet).

Cons: Doesn't work with CF cards which I use regularly.

Other Thoughts: This is very similar to another review b/c I've had basically the same experience. I just got this unit today and it works great with SD cards, but it doesn't work at all with CF cards. The light turns on as if it should be working, but the card isn't available. I've validated that the card works fine in another reader, so this appears to be a defect.

2 out of 5 eggs Disappointed 11/29/2010

This review is from: Bunn BX 10 Cup Home Velocity Brewer Black

Pros: Makes great coffee. I've owed several Bunns over the years and they have all made great coffee. Tip - if you have soft water, call Bunn and ask for the soft water spray head.

Cons: This particular model only lasted slightly more than two years where past models have been much more reliable. The biggest issue is that this one shorted out and tripped my GFCI breaker. I made coffee with it last night and it was fine. This morning I woke up to a tripped breaker in the kitchen that I traced to the Bunn. Based on past experience, I am extremely disappointed.
