Pros: This Access Point is great for the money. The setup is quick and relatively painless. The PoE is a welcomed addition. The range is great. No real complaints on the functionality of the AP whatsoever.
Cons: Support is HORRIBLE. We have purchased 5 of these to distribute wireless across two buildings. One of them started going down every other couple of days. It worked after a power reset, but then would go back down a couple days later. Called their support line. First, a message told me that they simply weren't able to take my call and then hung up. What?!? I called back. The message about being unable to take my call started, but then the phone began ringing. The perso...
Pros: Throughout or manufacturing facility to run various wireless devices like touchscreen computers and Wireless IP Cameras. I have honestly not have a problem with a single one or had to reboot since installing them several months ago. I have them all set on different channel with the same SSID and I can stream a video as I walk through the office and throughout the entire facility and never buffer the video.
Cons: I wish the POE was built into the LAN port and did not require a separate adapter but I knew this when I bought them.
Pros: Bought this to replace failed Trendnet APs. We have an extremely dense building with concrete bricks separating each classroom. The signal strength on these units are decent. They seem to get the range any other AP would in the same situation. You could probably find a more powerful AP, but not at nearly this price range. I now have three of these in place throughout our buildings. One of them uses the PoE feature. Haven't had to reset any of them since I placed them ...
Pros: Setup was fast and easy; it only took me five minutes. I was able to connect our Nintendo Wii to the network for Netflix streaming with WPA2 enabled and SSID broadcast disabled. Remains stable, only had to reset the device twice in two months.
Summary: First is the PoE is non-standard (it's "passive" PoE and not 802.3af or 802.3at). However, this is also probably is the only way they can offer it at such a price.
Pros: Price, speed, and features. Has lots of settings you can tweak if you so choose, including 3 levels of transmit power. Can also disable QSS if, like me, you prefer manual setup. Can also operate in several modes--not just standard AP (Ethernet to WiFi bridging). PoE is also handy, but see cons for more detail. Configuration can also handily be backed-up/restored from a file, though update the firmware first if you use MAC address restrictions.
Pros: Very easy to setup. Supports multiple SSIDs mapped to VLANs and WDS at a very low cost. Great range and good overall build quality.
Cons: Ethernet port is only 100mbit which negates the full potential of 802.11n. Turning off QSS when in multi-ssid mode is a headache. First you have to turn off VLAN support, then disable QSS on the SSIDs and then re-enable VLAN support.
