GIGABYTE GA-X99-Ultra Gaming (rev. 1.0) LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The GIGABYTE GA-X99-Ultra Gaming is a full featured board with tons of bells and whistles. From multi GPU support, USB 3.1,Killer NIC to some of the newer stuff like adding RGB lighting to the board. The plethora of features will make all levels of users swoon with delight. I really like the beefed up pci/dimm slots it gives end users a good feeling about supporting heavier cards with full cover water blocks like myself. It seems like Gigabyte hit a home run with this board. I tested this board with a borrowed 6950X and Corsair Dominator DDR4 3000Mhz memory. I gave it a mild oc of 4.5Ghz leaving the memory to run under XMP. It was super easy to oc and get up and running first time I also used a Samsung 850 EVO 1TB ssd and my Titan X (non pascal) sli'd gpu's. This thing was lightning fast I wish I had a NMVe drive to try on it to see how much if any improvements it allowed but I'm sure that would be slight if any. Simply because I cant believe anything could be faster than that. All in All a super strong board from Gigabyte as I have come to expect it from them. My last Gigabyte Board was the Z67 UD5 which was still going strong when I upgraded to X79.

Cons: I really didnt have any cons for this board at all. But some may find the lack of overall tun-ability of the RGB lighting a con but for most having RGB options are a plus not a con.

Other Thoughts: I give this board my full recommendation. I have always been a fan of Gigabytes boards and this one has not let me down.

5 out of 5 eggs ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security 04/11/2016

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: Very Nice router for the money very easy to setup and get running with minimal fuss. Includes Asus's AirCloud which allows storage and syncing to various devices. Dual banded for optimal performance and splitting your wireless traffic to avoid over utilization of any one band. Which is something a lot of folks dont understand. Easily covered my 1200sqft apt. Great overall range as compared to other routers I have reviewed.

Cons: I really dont have any cons to say except maybe the price but as I tell a lot of my customers. With wireless gear you get what you pay for so dont skimp when it comes to a router or you will regret it.

Other Thoughts: Simply a must buy router if your looking for one with these features. I'd definitely recommend this one to friends and family and heck even an enemy or two.

TRENDnet Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigibit Router with USB Share Port, TEW-813DRU
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

2 out of 5 eggs TRENDnet Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigibit Router with USB Share Port, TEW-813DRU simple small router 04/11/2016

This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigibit Router with USB Share Port, TEW-813DRU

Pros: this router is a simple entry level router in my honest opinion it does what it needs to do with a few bells and whistles added for convince. Like the USB share port nice to have but it could be better, dual bands for splitting up your wireless traffic. Small device that should work for just about all space constraint places. Guest login so you dont have to share your personal settings.

Cons: as others have said I'll rehash again USB 2.0 really guys catch up with the current millennium with USB 3.1 out now this should be min USB 3.0 . 5GHz band is barely there if you go to far from the router. I've tested many different router though this program and I have to say this is by far the worst 5GHz performance to date.

Other Thoughts: If your in a small apt or tiny house living then this will work fine for you. Otherwise I'd suggest spending a few more $$ and buying something better.
