D-Link DIR-890L/R Wireless AC3200 Ultra Tri-Band Gigabit Router, AC Smartbeam technology
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Speeds definitely beat my DIR-655 and my T-Mobile Asus TM-AC1900 02/11/2016

This review is from: D-Link DIR-890L/R Wireless AC3200 Ultra Tri-Band Gigabit Router, AC Smartbeam technology

Pros: - It is easy to setup.
- The speeds I am getting on the AC side match exactly my Broadband speed.
- The AC signal is much more stable than the Asus AC1900 and the speed of the 2.4GHz B/G/N is also much faster than any of my older 2.4GHz d-link routers.

Cons: -The product setup is easy (The configuration while easy is for babies) The interface is missing a lot of settings that my older DIR-655 has and seems to be dummied down a lot.
-The speed of saving the configuration is way too slow in this day and age.
- Saving the configuration file is not listed as backup in the user manual and is easy to miss on the Admin. page since it looks like the tab is greyed-out.

Other Thoughts: I will use this router heavily over the next couple of months and update if I have any reliability issues. So far the connection and quality of signal is superior to any of the other D-Link routers I have owned and seems to beat the insulation off my Asus AC1900 in signal quality. I realize the speeds are different but in a One-on-One comparison with signal quality it wins both in the 2.4 and 5GHz bands against all my previous routers. I also tested at higher bandwidth rates on both 2.4 and 5 using broadband speed test. The 2.4GHz channel was superior to my older DIR-655 even though this router is farther away from the Modem. The Gigabit WAN port allows me to run this as a secondary network from my primary router using the full wired speed of my home network.

Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro 4K Capture and play back Cards BINTSPRO4K
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Probably no better than Intensity Pro HD 12/11/2015

This review is from: Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro 4K Capture and play back Cards BINTSPRO4K

Pros: I do not own this board but I do own the previous Intensity Pro 1080P and it never worked. I even sent it back to have the F/W reflashed and when it came back I captured one 10sec video and 3 images before it became a brick. I tested in both Linux and Windows 7 (Windows 7 caused BSOD's). All these Black Magic low end products are absolutely worthless. Just read some of the comments around the Web.

Cons: Everything from the Pro.

Intel Network 7260.HMWWB.R WiFi WIRELESS-AC 7260 H/T 2X2 AC 867 Mbps+ Bluetooth HMC Dual Band Brown Box
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The BT works fine, drivers easy to install in Windows and worked on Mint 17.2 without any updates.

Cons: This card replaced an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card which worked excellent. I upgraded to an AC router so decided to upgrade my Laptop WiFi card. I don't really know where Intel went wrong with their WiFi but this card disconnected/reconnected at a regular rate on both Windows and Linux Mint 17.2. I tried different driver versions, installed different F/W in Linux but I can not remember an instance where it remained connected to either of my two routers for more than 10min. One router is an Asus TM AC1900 the other is a D-Link DIR-615.

Other Thoughts: I don't know how Intel can release a product this poor but its clear why they can't seem to get into the phone business when their WiFi chipsets are so poor.
