Pros: Fast right out of the box, reasonable power consumption
Cons: DO NOT buy the 840 EVO line of drives. They suffer from extreme data degradation where older data becomes slower and slower and slooow...er to access. The is exacerbated when used in high ambient temperatures.
I tested my drive again, with the latest EXT0DB6Q firmware that was supposed to fix everything. In a matter of 4 weeks, my average read speed decreased 17%, with higher variance as well.
Pros: I also have the 750W model of this PSU. That one is really solid, really efficient, and a joy to use.
I can only assume the same for this one.
Cons: Did not include any PCI-Express power cables. Requesting assistance to get replacements mailed to be. In the meantime, my build is just sitting there. Thankfully, I should be able to dig up an extra PCI-E cable from my 750W's bag.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price, if it worked. Ability to take Tomato firmware, extensive features associated w/ that firmware.
Wired and 2.4Ghz connections are fine
Cons: There was a slight hiccup in flashing to the most recent ASUS firmware, so I flashed the latest version of Tomato (look for the RT-N53 version) using the ASUS Recovery Utility--it's no longer on the Asus website, so you have to dig around for it.
I had everything set up very well, and I got 40% faster transmission rates using the 5Ghz band since there was so much interference from neighbors. However, after two days, the 5G wireless network would disappear; the SSID would stop being broadcasted, I couldn't manually connect to the network, all while the router said everything was fine.
Even restarts were no use--the 5Ghz network would appear briefly, but I was not able to connect to it.
