ASUS RT-N53 Dual Band Wireless N600 SOHO Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, Fast Ethernet, 5 Guest SSID, Parental Access Time control to Each User
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1. Small thin form factor. Attractive.
2. Very easy setup via a wizard.
3. Easy to reconnect if it's settings are changed or it's moved to a different location. and click on the internet status box, which will say disconnected, to reconnect.
4. Reasonable price.
5. Stable and fast after a firmware update.
6. It's blue lights are small and subdued.
7. Allows saving and reloading of all settings.

Cons: 1. Update firmware!, Update firmware! Update firmware! Am I emphatic enough? Goat into rockstar with the update.
2. It's thin, attractive form factor is also a problem. It's light, so the cables which are connected to the right side of the unit (as you face it) pull it down. I finally velcroed the base to my computer table.
3. This is a feature rich unit. There are literally hundreds of settings. Fortunately the wizard will get you easily connected, but for advanced users, don't throw the manual away.

Other Thoughts: In contrast to other reviewers, I found firmware upgrading to be easy. Just go to the ASUS support site, for the RTN53 device.

Download and unzip the newest firmware file. Then use your browser to open the router firmware settings The password and user logins are admin.. Go to 'Administration" select the tab firmware update and use the browse function to locate the downloaded and unzipped file. Flashing is then automatic. There is a firmware check function as well, and it's a good idea to use it before flashing. If yo screw up flashing, the included disk has a rescue function.

ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Once firmware is updated, fast, keeps connection, easy to set up with enclosed wizard. Rescue reset disk program if you screw up badly in changing settings.

Cons: I will say this again; you are in for a lot of angst if you don't update the firmware. Disconnected sessions, need to reset frequently slow speed.etc.
Endless number of cryptic settings in the firmware. ASUS must think most average users are telecommunications engineers.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 200 2924B002 4800 x 4800dpi 48bit USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Interface Flatbed Scanner

5 out of 5 eggs Inexpensive, compact and effective 09/29/2010

This review is from: Canon CanoScan LiDE 200 2924B002 4800 x 4800dpi 48bit USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Interface Flatbed Scanner

Pros: Very affordable

Excellent scan speed for a compact flatbed scanner

Very good scan results

Adequate software (it really hasn't changed much from my the software that came with my 5 year old canon N1220u scanner, but is much faster). The scan speed is very good and after an initial calibration can take as little as 5-6 seconds.

Power from USB port

Cons: Somewhat poor text scanning. Works better just to leave it on color/auto at 300+DPI.

Other Thoughts: These inexpensive little Canon flatbeds are much better than the ones in an all-in-one printer (to my eval) and will do thicker media such as books. Compact enough to sit next to your monitor and always ready.
