Lacking gigabit connectivity is what sort of con exactly? Or does the reviewer thing that will enable gigabit wifi performance?

Something they've forgotten to mention, these unit, will in case of power outage, not turn back on automatically, but need to be turned on manually. Something that makes them pretty much useless in any non-power secure setting, and merely annoying to operate if you like to turn your electrical appliances off from time to time..
