The G-2000 gets overall high marks for its physical design. It has a great look and feel from the outside and feels solid - evidence of good industrial design.
Its dual adjustable antennas serve the unit well and the status lights are well placed and easy to read. A small negative is that the power supply plug could use a restraining clamp.
While it's reasonably priced, some of the G-2000's consumer-oriented rivals cost about half as much! So while the product's ability to support WPA, EAP, RADIUS and particularly its built-in Local user authentication feature give it an edge on features, the G-2000's price premium may be more than potential buyers are willing to bear.
Although its web interface could use some additional work - especially the firewall interface - the G-2000 was easy enough to set up set up that I didn't have to resort to the manual just to get it working.
If ZyXEL can put as much polish into the web-interface as they have into the feature set and exterior design, they will have a stand-out product among a crowded field.
