Pros: good performance
Cons: 'CISCO CONNECT' HAS REALLY PRIMITIVE PARENTAL CONTROLS
Summary: Good performance so far. But I bought this as a dad trying to put some limits on all the facebooking during homework times. Cisco needs to put some dough into bringing their parental controls above absolute minimun. Lousy, almost worthless. Those old timers you put on electrical outlets would not be that much worse. If for example you want to keep them away from porn, you have one choice: turn off internet on their computer. What good is that? You also could 'block' ten websites, but what good is that? If Cisco doesn't know what you need for real parental controls (beyond what marketing may require to be able to claim them) you need - categories to block feature, - profiles to go with certain times of the day. What I would really like is a feature that blocks everything but allows only certain web sites you list. I would block everything and just get a list going of what is good for kids entertainment and education. People are crazy to say: sweetie, you are 13 I know, but here is a machine that will let you view and discuss all the kinky sex, child sacrifice, animal torture and racism the world has to offer. If you want plan for how to blow up a building, don't forget those are available as well. This is what essentially what Cisco's crummy parental controls will allow any kid to do.
