ZyXEL 1100 Series GS1100-8HP-240W Unmanaged 8-port Gigabit 240W PoE+ Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast. Real powerhouse in the POE department. Fan-cooled power supply is internal, so it uses a real power cord, not a wall wart. Sturdy metal case. Separate indicator lights to show when a POE device is connected to a particular port.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: 240 watts from a box this small needs some forced-air cooling. Some might consider the fan a bit loud - indeed, you probably wouldn't want to install this in a living space. I have mine in a hall closet and the fan noise is barely audible when the closet door is closed.

Cisco Small Business RV180-K9-NA RV180 VPN Router 1 x 10/100/1000Mbps WAN Ports 4 x 10/100/1000Mbps LAN Ports
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very stable, very fast. Runs cool with low power consumption. Very compact size for its capabilities - important if someone wishes to mount it in a structured wiring cabinet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The first step I took was to upgrade the firmware. The version was fairly recent, so maybe Cisco worked out some of the problems that other reviewers had in the past. I don't use the VPN capabilities, so I can't evaluate that function. There are a bewildering amount of options in the setup, many of which are probably only familiar to a network engineer (certainly not me!), but the router works "out-of-the-box" with the default settings, to get you up and running quickly (when used with Comcast ISP anyway). The price has more than doubled since I purchased mine in early February (2015). For once, maybe I had luck on my side?

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UB Black /Blue Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very sturdy. Spacious interior and good cooling with quiet fans included. Solid motherboard mounting. Attractive exterior. Plenty of drive bays for most uses. Front panel USB, firewire and audio jacks are convienent. No cheesy press-fit plastic drive bay covers to cave in - these are steel and bolted in place. Price - see below.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: This has to be one of the best deals going on a mid-tower case. Despite the low price, there is no "cheap" feel to it. Since it's sold without a power supply, you can "pick your poison" as to brand and capacity.
