D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655/RE) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs This is a rev. B unit, using success of rev A to sell 01/29/2013

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655/RE) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: 3 antenna design, cheap price

Cons: Not as great as rev. A units for reliability, range, and real QOS functions

Other Thoughts: D-link has been using the same model name to sell Rev. B units, capitalizing on the success of Rev. A units, which reviewed well, and had a real Ubicom Qos chip. Ubicom's chipset was unparalleled at the time for its robustness for many network streams. Rev B unit do not have Ubicom chipset, it has a Atheros chipset which supports Qos but nowhere near as intelligent as Ubicom.

SYBA USB 3.0 3+1 Port PCI-e Card, Free Low Profile Bracket, Renesas Chipset Model SD-PEX20137
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs reliable Renesas chipset, Bad design 01/25/2013

This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 3+1 Port PCI-e Card, Free Low Profile Bracket, Renesas Chipset Model SD-PEX20137

Pros: Renesas is among the most compatible usb 3.0 chipsets.

Constant stream of driver and firmware updates on station-drivers to keep it up to date.

Cons: Wish I could get UAS protocol support in windows 7

Badly designed, makes you connect molex connector to power up even low powered or self powered USB devices.
My other Renesas USB 3.0 cards only make molex power connector optional, this one is mandatory.
Drivers on CD is old, dont even bother.

Other Thoughts: Manufacturer does not even specify that Molex power is mandatory on this card, every other card's molex connector is optional for high powered USB 3.0 devices.
Had to buy a molex extension cable cause the one is the system did not reach.
