Bright Box on eBay, currently @ £6.07... ending tomorrow...


[link to this post]
 
Wow. I thought these things sold for MUCH more. Some dude has a Bright Box (new) on eBay with a current bid of £6.07, with only 12 hours left... AND NO RESERVE.

Should I buy it? Would you? Cheap enough for research:

There's still 12 hours to go and most bids on eBay are made in final few secs.

And others are selling at £60 or more.

And the last one sold at £27 + postage.

You takes yer choice!

You can pick up a linksys WAG54GS for £5 delivered on eBay, a far superior bit of kit!

How can you possibly prove that it is superior, when the Bright Box has been out less than one month, and very little is known about the inner mechanisms yet? I am not doubting that the WAG54GS is a great router, but there's simply not enough evidence yet to say that the Bright Box is inferior, *especially* as it's only on firmware version 1.0, and uses a MUCH faster cpu (320Mhz vs WAG54GS @ 166Mhz) and the WAG54GS has 16Mb of SDRAM, whereas the Bright Box has 64Mb DDR RAM.

The Bright Box has far greater potential I think. Give it a chance, it's NEW. smile

Easy - it's made by Cisco, and it can run OpenWrt.

And Cisco have never made a bad product? Who says the Bright Box won't run OpenWRT in time? It has superior hardware *AND* USB host mode, 300Mbps Wireless N. This is pure speculation, and I think a generous spoonful of Cisco apologist bias has been applied to the debate, which nullifies any weight you could have given to your argument.

I'm staying neutral on this, until a few months down the line, when the hardware has been properly reverse engineered. I don't see anyone here, me included, compiling firmware for the Bright Box, so we're not in a position to comment. smile

That's not a reason, lol. Cheaper != better.
