New Performance Charts
Note that all the Filters except for Company have been removed from the Performance Charts. If you really want to drill down by product features, well, that's what the Finders are for!
Of course, you can still click up to four products and you'll be taken to a Finder view to peruse detailed product features. But, for simplicity's sake, all sorting and filtering features are disabled in that view.
As with the Router Finder, the Router Chart holds both wired and wireless performance information for all routers in our database. The Wireless Chart hold only performance data for non-router products.
The screenshot below shows a wireless benchmark view. But the familiar routing benchmarks (WAN To LAN Throughput, LAN to WAN Throughput, etc.) are available in the Benchmark selector.
The familiar Performance Table, Performance vs. Location, Benchmark Summary and Price vs. Performance views are still here. But note the new Parameter selector next to the Benchmark selector.
Router Chart - Wireless Benchmark
The Average default view is the same as the old chart view, i.e. an average of all the values from our six test locations. But you can now also easily and quickly compare maximum and minimum values from the test locations, as well as each individual location. Cool, huh?
With these new Charts and Finders, we've also taken the opportunity to do some house cleaning. What you won't find in the new charts are old and outdated benchmarks, like the Azimuth method wireless and iozone-based NAS tests. We've also cleaned house and gotten rid of many discontinued products. But some are still available by using the [Switch To Show] Archived product link.
But if you really need to access the old charts to get at historical performance data, we're still leaving them up for awhile. Just follow the Old Chart links that you'll find up in the site nav bar in the Wireless NAS and LAN & WAN sections.
So, that's the story. We hope you like the new Finders and revamped Performance Charts and find them even more useful in your search for the right products. As with any major rework, there are sure to be bugs, errors and omissions. So please help us track them down by letting us know if you find anything strange, or just can't find what you're looking for. Of course thanks and attaboys are always welcome too!
