Pros: * gigabit ports
* 802.11ac speeds on my Android phone
Cons: * too bad my other devices can't take advantage of the 802.11ac, they're all stuck at 802.11n speeds
Other Thoughts: Just added this to my existing network as an AP, connected an ethernet cable to a LAN port and disabled DHCP on the Archer C2. Local computers and this Archer C2 are connected by ethernet cables to an unmanaged gigabit switch. My old router handles my WAN connection.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: works with linux
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: Got this to replace another 2.5" enclosure that I was having trouble using in an Ubuntu 14.04 install on a Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 motherboard which has a Etron EJ168 USB 3.0 Host Controller. When plugged into a USB 3 port on the motherboard, the enclosure is recognized as "JMicron USA Technology Corp. JMS567 SATA 6Gb/s bridge" and the drive shows up in Disks. I get the same result when the enclosure is plugged into a pci-E card that has a Renesas uPD720201 USB 3.0 Host Controller.
At the time of this review, the kernel version is 3.13.0-91.138-generic
Pros: I have the Ravpower RP-PB07 which will not charge a recent phone that I purchased. The 2.4A iSmart output of RP-PB35 is able to charge the 3000mAh battery on the newer phone at least 3 times.
Cons: The power cuts out after a minute or so if I use it with a USB LED lamp. The older RP-PB07 does not have this issue. The built in LED flashlight is dim. Takes overnight to charge even with a 2.4A AC charger.
Other Thoughts: Plan on charging this battery pack well ahead of time before you put it to use. Might not charge other devices such as MP3 players.READ FULL REVIEW
