Pros: Good range, easy to set up. Proper antennas as opposed to many other cheaper routers these days that have a tiny or no external antenna. Blows the pants off the unit it replaced. Gigabit LAN/WAN ports. Has some useful features like network map and speed test built into the stock firmware.
Cons: Stock firmware leaves something to be desired. The initial setup tries to push a cloud account on you. Poor UI design that uses modal dialogs everywhere. Only shows icons for the side toolbar on all except the main page.
Limited options for features like DDNS. Can't configure it for a 10.x.x.x network, it's limited to 192.168.x.x. Guest network is not secure.
Larger than some other routers.
Other Thoughts: This unit can run current versions of DD-WRT. If you need more than the basics, that's the route to take.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP Folio 13-2000 Ultrabook - Intel Core i5 1.6GHz (2467M) - 4GB RAM - 128GB SSD - 13.3" HD LED Display - Gigabit Ethernet - 802.11n WiFi - Webcam - HDMI - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed
Pros: Nice looking, decent specs for the price, would rate this laptop higher if it had worked.
Cons: Had to return it since the touchpad was defective, making it useless without an external mouse.
Other Thoughts: Power adapter not included, and the OS wasn't licensed, but I'd be fine with dealing with those myself if the touchpad had worked properly.
Seller failed to respond to inquiries or requests for a return shipping label for my defective unit, but Newegg's customer service was great and got me a return label and processed the refund for me after the seller didn't respond.
Pros: It's a SATA cable. It works.
Cons: 10 inches is shorter than you think. Probably won't be useful for many applications due to the fact they won't reach from the connectors on many motherboards to devices near the top of the case, especially optical drives.
Other Thoughts: They weren't long enough for my intended use, but they'll make good for testing stuff.READ FULL REVIEW
