Pros
Everything !
Cons
Nothing
Summary
Our company completely switch from using/installing Cisco products to peplink for both routers and access points,
Please note, Do not get the balance 20 if you have a high speed connection higher than 100/100
For our typical 250/20 or 350/350 connections we install the ballance one

Pros
Low cost dual WAN solution that actually works!
Cons
Limited resources. Not for network newbies.
Summary
I've installed this product with 16 port D-Link switch that had 10 wireless Access Points & 3 PCs attached, connected to 2 X 50mbps Shaw Cable connection.
Worked flawlessly. At peak, we had up-to 30 devices using the internet at once. It worked like a charm.
Only bad thing is that there is manual that comes with the product. I had to search the company website to find manuals. Obviously, this product is not for newbies, but for seasoned professionals/experienced power user.
So far, I am very satisf
ied with the product performance. I've ran several stress tests, and it is more stable than Linksys, Cisco, D-Link, TP-Link and Trend routers at similar price range.
If you are considering to purchase a solid dual wan router, give Peplink a serious thought. I'm glad to find Peplink. I've ditched Cisco, and I'll never go back!

Pros
Simple setup for dual wan
load balancing works very well and failover is quick
very clean web interface
does dns caching on the unit so that dns requests that are repeats do not need to go out, should speed up surfing as 90% or more of dns requests are repeats
accepts a usb internet stick on top of the two wan connection
Cons
requires 2 static WAN ip addresses to be able to do true inbound load balancing, with one static and one non-static ip inbound traffic is tied to one wan connection, 2 users though get split one to each wan. I will have to get a static ip address set up for my one connection that does not have one so that it can combine the connections. But I suspect that this is the case with any multi-wan router.So this is probably not a real Cons!
Summary
My internet connection for web browsing is now way more responsive compared to the cisco RV042 that I was using that was actually slowing down my connections. Preliminary test with the dns caching enabled makes for a much smoother web browsing experience.
