Pros: Nice design. Dual band, create your own cloud
Cons: 5 GHz band will drop
Other Thoughts: This router is much more stable than my old Netgear. The old would require rebooting on a daily basis. I have only had to reboot this one once.
The 5GHz band is quite fast for the limited devices that support it, but it does tend to drop a lot and have to be manually reconnected. (A lot is a relative term, once every few days).
Use the could share and hooked up my 1.5TB external HDD up to it. Was able to access from work, but transfer speeds were crazy slow, so, you are still better off using SkyDrive or Google Drive. Not a deal breaker by any means, but if that is a feature you are looking at as a prime reason to buy, you might want to pass.
Pros: Easy to set up and can browse the web
Cons: Constantly disconnects from Windows 8 x64 when downloading, streaming video, or anything else one speeds exceed 500 kps
Other Thoughts: Had Windows 7 x64 when I bought the unit. Worked "ok" with that. Still dropped connection about once or twice a day. After going to Windows 8, however, it has not worked. Looked for a better driver at NetGear's web page and the only 64bit driver seemed to be written by an outside person and Netgear just "stickyied" his post for people to get it from him.
Talk about lazy. Why bother creating an official driver when our upset users will do it for us. Now shopping for new adapter. I just hate that i spent $70 for six months of useage. Maybe i will take it to work and use it there to bypass corp internet blocking with my cell phone. Still have Win 7 there.
Pros: Nice design, fast processor, good video card, plenty of RAM. Perfect system for my budget
Cons: After a week, starting BSOD. Tech support has me jumping trough hoops and just spent an entire Saturday reinstalling Windows and games. 15 minutes later BSOD.
Other Thoughts: If this computer wasn't a dud, it would be great. CyberPower can't seem to help me (their canned response is "check the RAM" ... which I did 3 times ... or reinstall thye drivers. Not sure why they just didn't say, "It's a new computer and shouldn't be giving you hassles. Let us replace it."
Now New Egg is out of them, so I can't get a new working one. Kinda peed off.
