This review is from: Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem
Pros: This is a nice cable modem will work with most isp providers but not all make sure your allowed to use your own modem before purchase.
This Modem has removable base but no way to mount modem to wall.
Unfortunately My ISP Provider will not let me use this modem so i cannot test speed gains but in a experience your speed gains can be substantial over the stock modem your isp rents to you.
Modem has Many download channels and paths for upgraded speeds to spread out the bandwidth to more devices.
Other Thoughts: Stop Renting Modems. Save 5-10$ per Month
My ISP will not allow use of third party products Armstrong cable services in PA will not allow the use. Check with your provider if u can use your own equipment before buying.
This review is from: NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
Pros: The NETGEAR R7800Has a ton of features like VPN, DoS protection and a bunch of other features that can be useful.
The router offers gigabit over the 5Ghz network. The Router is also fast enough with the bottleneck in my testing to be my ISP.
This Router has 4 large antennas and take up a decent footprint The Router also features 2 USB 3.0 Ports allowing for storage or printing devices to be hooked to the network, it also has an eSATA port again to allow for adding storage to the network. The Mobile app is a great way to interface with the router as well.
The wireless on this router it stellar great speeds feels like my computer is hooked direct to router with cat6.
Cons: The Interface is not sleek, and in fact feels like a UI from a couple years ago. There is no customization for the DoS protection its either on or off. Some menus are also hard to find for instance instead of port forwarding being under internet setup or security its under status/administration. I removed one egg for the outdated UI.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this router to any homeowner that need plug and play functionality and high speed wifi.
May even be good for small businesses.
Pros: The SP SD Card is rated at class 10, I was not able to test this but I was able to test the transfer speeds at USB 2.0 speeds. In my testing I got Sequential read speeds of 20.08MB/s and write speeds of 13.37MB/s take the results with a grain of salt, as I was limited to USB 2.0 speeds which tops at 60MB/s. I'm using a cheap generic SD card reader so with a name brand reader and USB 3.0 speeds I would estimate a data transfer rate of 30ish MB/s read and 20ish MB/s write. These results were achieved by CrystalDiskMark. When I copied a 2.8gb movie from a hard drive to the drive the speeds peaked at 16MB/s the transfer took about 2 and a half minutes. Again this is with the limit of USB 2.0 Speeds and a 7200RPM Mechanical hard disk.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product thanks to its very reasonable price and performance during a bottle necked test
Specialty for 9.99 its a great steal
