This review is from: ZyXEL NBG6815 AC2200 MU-MIMO Dual-Band Wireless Gigabit Router
Pros: Easy setup, great monitoring capabilities, easy adjust
Cons: Would hesitate from time to time while streaming data on wireless
Other Thoughts: as others have stated the throughput is excellent for data transfer and except for the lag only on data transfer from one pc to another this thing did great. The lag never showed while streaming video through Netflix.
To put it's power into perspective at 40ft away It ran 3 out of 4 bars on my T.V. while speed rated by the T.V. was at 17mbps whereas my $300 dollar router scored 4 bars and 24mbps so dollar per dollar this router performed above par.
To test it I connected a $35 signal extender to it and grabbed 4 bars and 30+ mbps all while 17 items were connected to it from laptops to other t.V's and 9 bitcoin mining machines all on wireless and it never got hot for the 5 days it has been in use.
I do not know what to think of the stutter during file transfer as nothing else is bothered but if you do a lot of that it may be something to think about and I assume a firmware update will fix that or heck it could be fault of one of the pc's
All in all I am impressed with this modem as usually I have to utilize high dollar routers to run cool and smooth and this one with a simple signal extender does great.
Worked wired excellent with zero stutter on anything including gaming.
I would recommend this to a friend.
This review is from: ASUS RP-AC52 AC750 Repeater / Access Point / Media Bridge
Pros: easy setup,great range, good receiver,
Other Thoughts: This range extender is probably one of the strongest I have used as I am able to place this a little further than others I have and have reviewed and it rebroadcasts the signal just as far as any of them and that means that I have a little extra range.
2.5ghz is always good and strong on these extenders
5ghz is normally where the problem begins and yet this received and rebroadcast the signal incredibly well enabling my furthest t.v to load netflix faster than ever by a whopping 2 seconds faster and that is a lot!
Setp is as simple as it gets and you even have a signal meter to help you find a great spot instead of running back and forth.
All in all I did not expect to be overly impressed but I was and would easily recommend this to anyone looking for a great range extender.
Pros: cools efficiently for basic to moderately overclocked cpu's, Reasonable price.
Cons: Very weak mounting ears (Plastic)
Other Thoughts: The cooler manages to keep my 6 core intel at 53c at idle on a 4.2ghz overclock and gamed well but temps did go to 62 c, that being said this is a 6 core so not bad at all for a small cooler vs my full size radiator.
Like I said the mounting ears are plastic and I did not want to torque them to my standard in fear of breaking them and ruining the cooler, so be advised to be careful and maybe tighten a hair more after things get warm.
The fan is quiet but is pretty heavy but all in all worked just fine.
It only received 4 egg not because of problems but because of the mounting ears.
Be careful and this seams to be a good value.
