NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit High Performance Desktop Switch (GS608)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good, but no Jumbo frames 08/19/2011

This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit High Performance Desktop Switch (GS608)

Pros: Has worked well for several years now, even after 18 months in storage.

Cons: Will switch gigabit ether fine at 1500 byte frames, but won't pass jumbos at any size. Tried with two matching Intel PCIe cards, with various settings, and no luck.

Has "frozen" once or twice, and stopped passing traffic, but recovered after a restart.

Xerox DocuMate 152 XDM152D-WU Duplex Sheetfed Document Scanner

5 out of 5 eggs Small powerhouse 08/19/2011

This review is from: Xerox DocuMate 152 XDM152D-WU Duplex Sheetfed Document Scanner

Pros: Very fast, and the latest revisions of the driver package are very customizable. I've scanned thousands of documents with this, without significant problems, and would highly reccomend it to anyone looking to go paperless.

Cons: Two bugs appear occasionally:
- Sometimes it fails to engage the first page of a document. This can be fixed tapping the page, and later, adjusting (bending) the small pad towards the document to pull it more firmly. It also comes with a spare pad in case this one wears out.
- The drivers occasionally crash. I scan 200 pages per week, and maybe once per week, it will crash mid-doc, and I will have to start it over.
- The drivers don't compress PDFs much. If a document is large, I often re-save it in adobe and save 30%.

Other Thoughts: ScanSoft PaperPort is just OK. The merge/explode features are handy, but the icon sizes are too small when dealing with many many documents.

It will not scan documents longer than legal. Long expense receipts cannot be saved with this scanner, without tearing them in half and taping them to a legal page.
