This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: worked well, good signal strength, decent setup menu
Cons: SHORT LIVED. Purchased three of these routers over time to use at different locations. All three of these routers died shortly after warranty period was up. (1 yr)
Other Thoughts: Have owned several D-link products over the years and have had good luck, but their quality has really gone down hill. I won't purchase another D-Link product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is an update to a prior review
Cons: Intel's latest driver 188.8.131.52.3165 for the HD 4600 GPU still needs work. Installed this on an ASUS Gryphon Z87 MB and ASUS has a newer driver posted, which improved things, but still get occasional BSOD "system restarted". WinDbg points to the graphics driver. Many other folks listing problems on the web.
Other Thoughts: If you are using an add in GPU than it's probably not going to be an issue, but if using the built in HD4600,expect some issues. Come on Intel, put a real cooler with this CPU and spend some time getting the drivers right!!!!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS GRYPHON Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Good board layout, well built. Bought this board to replace a defective MSI Z87M-G43 1150 board. Returned the MSI board. UEFI BIOS is okay, but not great (layout). 5 year warranty a big plus!
Cons: ASUS could do a better job of their driver install disc. EZ update doesn't work on a new Haswell, Win8 Pro 64 build, neither the version on the driver disc or the latest from the ASUS website.
Other Thoughts: ASUS needs to put more detailed notes on their website about changes in BIOS updates and also any Hotfixes. It's been a gripe of mine with ASUS for along time.READ FULL REVIEW
