Was reasonably happy with this case. Good fit, felt okay. Cracked after a few weeks, though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be nice if it had a non-routing mode, Sept. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
PROs:

* Works well enough.
* 802.11ac provides enough bandwidth to stream HD videos over the network, which I had trouble with previously.
* Small footprint
* Can disable DHCP

CONs:

* VERY limited firmware
* No way to disable WAN interface to use as just an access point
* Some settings pages either don't save changes, or don't show current settings. Not sure which
* Unable to check for firmware updates when your internet connection is not routed through this device
* Pops up a giant warning about the WAN interface being down every time you use the web interface

Summary:
Since I'll need to interact with it to a minimal extent, I can ignore it's UI deficiencies. Would be nice if it had a non-routing mode, so I don't need to configure a dummy static WAN IP. Based on the lackluster UI, not sure if I'd trust the rest of it to act as a router directly connected to the Internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movies for a great series, April 8 2009
Very good additions to an already great, but far too short series. Probably the weakest movie in the collection is the first one, "Dark Horizon" -- it attempted some special effects that just didn't deliver, and tries too hard to pick-up where the series left off five years earlier.

The remaining four movies did a much better job of staying true to the spirit of the series, and examined several topics (racism, desire, belonging).

I strongly recommend this set, as well as the TV series that preceded it.
