All of the above I'd give 4 or 5 stars to, but this, the 104, is just unfit for purpose. I'd give it zero stars if that were possible.
We installed one in September and it was fine for just over 3 months (so just outside Netgear's 90 day free telephone support period...).
Then, one day, it just locked up. Completely unresponsive - inaccessible by any electronic method, either for file access, admin interface, ssh connection, even pinging the unit fails.
The power button is also unresponsive, either to the multiple-press graceful shutdown, or the press-and-hold forced shutdown.

Looks very good with its classic clean design.
Robust - feels like it will last.
Set up was relatively easy follwing the instructions provided.
More features than I will ever use.
Very fast in operation.
I don't like too much the users configuring it's a little bit confusing but the product is promising although aI'm still reading the tch specs manual.
