Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Pegasus is a must buy if you have a 17" laptopBefore i did any research pertaining to laptop bags I had already decided to buy a backpack as opposed to other types of laptop bags. The week before Christmas I read a ton of reviews pertaining to 17" backpacks and it became clear that SwissGear made the most reliable backpacks. I chose to wait until after Christmas to buy the Pegasus. Ironically, I was given a very nice HP 17" backpack for Christmas. The backpack had some good features and seemed to be what I was looking for, that was until I put my laptop in the bag. When HP listed the backpack as a 17" bag they were being literal... My laptop didn't really fit, the zippers on the backpack rubbed against both corners of my computer. I returned the HP ($50 model) backpack and ordered the Pegasuss. The bag arrived in 2 days and has tons of features,compartments, looks great, and is of impecable quality. The last concern I had was if my laptop would actually fit and it does. The zippers don't rub the laptop & there is tons of padding. Even though it is a little bit more than other bags it is worth ever cent.. This is a must buy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended for the TravelerI have been traveling internationally for business and replaced a traditional briefcase with this backpack. It easily accommodates my 15.6" laptop computer with the extended battery pack and a mini nano sticking out of a USB port on the side. It is easier than a briefcase to navigate through international airports due to the extra handle that fits nicely onto a wheeled suitcase and I have had no problem storing it in overhead bins or under seats on airplanes. Folders and notebooks store easily and are readily accessible. It does have a readily accessible internal pocket for a passport and electronic devices (i.e., GPS, ipod, etc.) also store easily into this backpack and all are well protected. The only minor negative is that I would have liked more zippered internal compartments and a better accommodation of pens, pencils, business cards, and common business supplies. Regarding durability, I have not had the backpack long enough to comment but I have Vitronox/Swiss made luggage that has held up very well even with having to check it with the airlines so I expect nothing less from this back pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and ProtectionThis backpack is the best ever. Your computer is well protected, and safe in this comfortable backpack. You will not have to worry about the handle breaking as the steel cable that is built into the handle will take the weight that you stuff into this backpack. There is plenty of storage space that is padded which you will cherish. Buy this backpack as you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent computer backpack.I often carry two notebooks. The Wenger Pegasus has sufficient capacity to allow this. There's enough room for my two machines and all the other stuff I carry- external drives, flash drives, switch, cables, phone charger, portfolio, etc. Build quility is such that I don't worry about the bag being overloaded or carrying more weight that it can handle. Very pleased with the bag itself, the price paid, and order handling at the HP online store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great productI just bought this backpack for the dv7t se that I bought. It fit the 17.3" laptop perfectly in the bag. Its not as heavy as I thought it would be and is fairly light with just the laptop and accessories. It can fit alot of stuff inside all of its compartments. If you have a 17 inch laptop, buy this backpack. It is stylish and tough, built to last. I would recommend this backpack to anyone who is looking for a laptop bag for school. It is high priced, but don't let that scare you away, its WELL WORTH THE PRICE!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great BackpackI've had this backpack for over 3 years, and it's one of the best I've ever owned. It's built well, and it fits a 17 in laptop. I use it for carrying my laptop, and for everything else. It holds a lot of stuff. I take it camping, and it holds up to any abuse I throw at it. If you want a high quality bag, buy this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great BackpackI normally wear a backpack and carry a laptop bag. Now, I carry my laptop and my other stuff in my backpack! It's a little heavy, when fully loaded, but the "shock absorbing" shoulder straps minimize the effort of the load- and my hands are free to do something else! There are enough pockets to separate and protect your stuff in many places. Why else get this. Plus it was about half the price of a local chain store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable with good patching and good internal updatingWhat is our primary use case?We primarily use the solution for internal updates. What happened is that one of our equipment items had a problem with a new Windows update and so we have to uninstall this update. We were looking for ways to do it centrally. There were some Lenovo boxes that were restarting automatically and we had to take out these updates.What is most valuable?The most important aspect is that we can centrally deploy the updates that are necessary for the organization. It's important. The solution is great for internal updates.The solution has very good patches. They recently released one for Chrome, which was quite helpful.We've found the stability to be pretty good.What needs improvement?It's not always easy to set up.Their Local Group Policy works well for the Microsoft environment, however, we need it or other software as well. We've realized that we have to pay. We have to buy extra items in order to access this catalog of different updates.The reporting is not as practical as I would like it to be. It's something that I would like them to improve in future releases.It would be nice if there were more alerts to let us know what is missing. It would be nice if there was an integration with the main server and with the active directory so that I can receive the necessary alerts. It would be good to know which equipment is connected to the directory and which are behind schedule with updates.For how long have I used the solution?I just started using the solution this year, and therefore I've only used it for the last couple of months. However, in this office, they have been using it thing for a couple of years, at least.What do I think about the stability of the solution?The solution is quite stable. It's reliable. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. As long as it can help us manage the data, it's good.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?I cannot speak to the scalability. I have never tried to scale the solution.How are customer service and technical support?I've never been in touch with technical support. I cannot speak to how helpful or responsive they are.How was the initial setup?The initial setup isn't easy to set up. However, it's not necessarily always hard, either. It has a moderate amount of difficulty.In our case, we had remote offices to set up in different cities. We have not yet implemented interconnection between these offices. Each office has its own server, its own Windows environment. We have this implemented in our central office, and I would like it across all of our remote offices as well. I'm not sure how long that will take. I'm just beginning to dive into that.What other advice do I have?We are just a customer and an end-user.I'm not sure of which version of the solution we're using.I'd advise new potential users to implement the product and to regularly check on it. We have some equipment that is not being updated. That's on us. It's necessary, however, to implement constant evaluations for which equipment is actually connected to the solution.I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten overall. We're mostly quite happy with the product.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?On-premisesDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable and straightforward solution that allows complete network visibilityWhat is our primary use case?My primary use case is general patch management, to make sure that when Microsoft releases patches, we test and deploy them within the timelines. The solution also ensures that we are compliant and protected against vulnerabilities.What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is the ability to check whether users working from home are on the domain or not, allowing us complete visibility of the endpoints that are connecting to our network.What needs improvement?One area for improvement is that WSUS does not give 100% accuracy, so you cannot be completely certain that all of your systems are fully patched. There are always 5-10% of your systems that have not been updated with the correct patches, which is an open gate for security threats. I also think that the product needs a better utility and report mechanism. In the next release, I would like to see better compatibility for non-Windows servers and tools.For how long have I used the solution?I've been working with this solution for a year.What do I think about the stability of the solution?Functionality-wise, WSUS meets our requirements.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?There are some issues with scalability in larger organizations, as WSUS may not cover 100% of their endpoints.How was the initial setup?Setup is very simple and straightforward.What other advice do I have?Currently, I'm looking at other solutions because the enrolment we have is not boundary-defined, so we require a product with total remote infrastructure management, vulnerability assessment, and complete control of the system built in. For best results with WSUS, you need to keep close track of things with regular function checklists. I would rate this product as eight out of ten.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?On-premisesDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scalable and useful for implementing patchesWhat is our primary use case?My primary use case of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services is to enforce patching for applications. I act as the client, not the server admin. If, let's say, my laptop has not restarted frequently, this solution will force me to take a couple of minutes to restart. This solution is deployed on cloud, so I'm always using the latest version.What is most valuable?A valuable feature about this solution is that it enforces an updating and patching process for my applications.What needs improvement?This solution's deployment could be improved. When I was the admin, there were some problems when deploying to clients. Sometimes the policy is not effective. I guess, more on the reliability side, more reliable means working more often with the clients. It could be easier to deploy.For how long have I used the solution?I have been using this solution for the duration of time I've been in my company.What do I think about the stability of the solution?This solution is stable.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?This product is scalable. In my organization, there are about 600,000 people using Microsoft Windows Server.How are customer service and support?I have never contacted Microsoft support.Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I didn't use another patch management solution before Microsoft Windows Server.How was the initial setup?We had a lot of issues during deployment. I remember when we first deployed this solution, it didn't work, so we had to retry, we had to troubleshoot, and then after we finally got it, we could only partially use it. It would be great if the process were more simple so that we could deploy it on the first try to hundreds and thousands of clients. I don't remember the time duration of the installation or how big our deployment team was.What about the implementation team?We implemented through an in-house team.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?For licensing, I think it's on a framework contract. I'd guess my CIO would know, but I didn't buy my license—it's by default on my PC.Which other solutions did I evaluate?I evaluated BigFix as part of my research, but I haven't used it.What other advice do I have?As an end user, I rate this solution a 10 out of 10. I've had no issues so far.I'm not sure if I can recommend this solution because I don't know what the alternatives are, so I have no experience in an alternative solution. It could be the case that BigFix is better.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?Private CloudDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient, reliable, but configuration difficultWhat is our primary use case?I am using Microsoft Windows Server Update Services for patch management.What is most valuable?The most valuable feature of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services is the efficiency once configured.What needs improvement?Microsoft Windows Server Update Services could improve the ease of use.For how long have I used the solution?I have been using Microsoft Windows Server Update Services for approximately 12 years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?Microsoft Windows Server Update Services is stable.How are customer service and support?The support could improve because we needed to do a lot of research to use the Microsoft Windows Server Update Services and hardware. It was a time-consuming process.How was the initial setup?The setup and configuration of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services are difficult. It could be made easier.What about the implementation team?I used two people for the implementation and maintenance of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services.What other advice do I have?I would advise others that this is a good solution but it takes some time to configure. It is important to do it right.I rate Microsoft Windows Server Update Services a seven out of ten.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly stable, low maintenance, and helpful supportWhat is our primary use case?The most valuable feature of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services is the fact that we can deploy patches from Microsoft security patches and deploy software.What needs improvement?Microsoft Windows Server Update Services could improve by being less cumbersome to use. It's somewhat difficult to use, but we manage to get through it.For how long have I used the solution?I have used Microsoft Windows Server Update Services within the last 12 months.What do I think about the stability of the solution?Microsoft Windows Server Update Services is highly stable. It is one of the most stable solutions from Microsoft.How are customer service and support?The support was great from Microsoft Windows Server Update Services. When we were implementing it or upgrading it to the version we have now, the representative was able to do a Teams meeting with us and help configure it and create deployment shares. They helped us with everything.How was the initial setup?The initial setup of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services is complex.What about the implementation team?There is not a lot of maintenance required for the solution. The only thing we do is apply patches and approve patches to deploy. It's fairly easy, we do have a whole team that takes care of it, but the majority is hands-off.What other advice do I have?My advice to others is if you are thinking about implementing the solution, I will highly suggest they use the support from Microsoft for the implementation. It requires SQL and needs to run SQL local to the server.I rate Microsoft Windows Server Update Services an eight out of ten.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
