Pros: Lasted 5 years. Did its job until it didn't. Allowed me very high transfer rates between the two main computers on my home network.
Cons: Earlier this year I began to notice erratic behavior. I'd start having network issues that I tracked down to the router itself. Rebooting the router usually fixed it. Then it would work fine for hours, days, weeks, then start acting up again. Five years is long enough I suppose but something this simple should last a bit longer IMO.
Summary: I've had units like this last 5 to 8 years and higher quality last 10 to 15 yrs. This thing is not worth the time it takes to plug it in because you'll be doing that again in 12 months. Buy another brand.
Pros: None of significance
Cons: 3x Just stops working. No known trigger. each of 3 of theses I've had died between 12 and 15 months.
Summary: In part, it is my mistake, I knew well that D-Link will not work. It is in a deserved place now - landfill.
