This review is from: NETGEAR R6400-100NAS AC1750 Smart Wi-Fi Dual Band Gigabit Router
Pros: Seems strange reading the reviews. I am glad before buying I went into reading other reviews from different stores, which were excellent for this router. If I read these reviews first I perhaps would not have bought it. Can't believe I am reviewing the same product. This is an EXCELLENT router. Strong. No more constant restarts and no more dead spots in my house, upstairs or downstairs.
Cons: For a few dollars more I should have bought the AC1900. Why? Just because. That is NO dig on this unit at all. It is just that it wouldn't have been that much more money and it would have been even stronger then this one. BUT I am thoroughly happy with router.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AVerMedia C285 Game Capture HD II
Pros: I am writing an update to my first review......I have had this unit now for 1 year and have recorded many videos with it. In my first review I stated that the only thing I didn't really like about the unit (there is always something not perfect about ANY device) was the HDCP encryption. It sucks, and it is this way with ALL recording devices that have HDMI recording I found. Unless you have a stripper of some sort you cannot record through HDMI. (PS3 and Xbox exception?). By accident. TOTAL accident, I needed to split the TV signal off to another device so I bought an ordinary HDMI splitter. Viola. NO MORE HDCP. I record through the HDMI perfect now.
Cons: The only con, other than wishing that the unit could defeat the HDCP, but I am sure if they defeated it within the unit they would not be able to legally sell them, is the timer recording. While it does work I wish they could improve it. Next would be if it could record in 5.1 sound like the Hauppauge.
Other Thoughts: I just saw it for sale in Newegg for 115.00. That sucks. I paid 150.00 for it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is ASUS which I have typically good results with. The board didn't have all the features I wanted, but I knew that when purchasing it so I have to give it 5 eggs. I have good luck with most boards I buy, but you can't go wrong with ASUS usually.
Cons: I have read many horror stories of people purchasing refurbed items, but I have been really fortunate in all of the different refurbed items I have purchased over the years. When I get the items they are packaged and look perfect. New. But this time it did not look like a refurbed item. It looked like an open item that someone haphazardly threw together in the box. Disappointed, but the board works.
Other Thoughts: I bought this board as I have a Sandy Bridge 2600k i7 and really like the processor. 1155 boards are growing real scarce so I bought this one and of course as soon as I buy it a few better ones become available, but I will continue to buy ASUS...READ FULL REVIEW
