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

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.

GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-UD5 TH LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-UD5 TH Amazing Motherboard 01/12/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-UD5 TH LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This review is for the GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-UD5 TH. Very attractive board thats mostly black with some subtle gold accents making it an easy fit into any system. I simply love this board I wish I owned a processor to use it fulltime but I had a loaner cpu and ddr4 memory so I was able to play with it for about 10 days. Gigabyte has always produced some of the best motherboards out there and this one is one of them. Able to do crossfire or SLI for your multi graphic card desires. I used my 2 GTX980's system setup was simple and a breeze and the bios had just about everything you need from novice to the overclockers out there. The new pci-e metal shielding give the slots alot of extra support as well as shielding it from the other slots. Onboard PCIE gen 3 M.@ slot for an M.2 ssd is awesome and becoming more standard on alot of boards but it allows for alot faster interface for data at a whopping 32GB/s compared to todays standard ssd's on a sata 6GB/s port thats blazing fast. Onboard as well is a plethora of fan connectors I count 6 total 5 pwm and a single 3 pin header, among the 5 pwm 2 are denoted for cpu so this will allow you to run your AIO pump and fans and control them both via the bios. The High Def Audio was surprisingly clear and crisp when played thru my sound bar or my headphones. Then there's the lighting effect that's on board that also shield it from the rest of the board. Then theres the features Gigabyte is famous for dual bios to help protect you from a bad flash or bios corruption, their 15u gold plated socket for the cpu pins as well as their 2x copper pcb. And last but not least Thunderbolt support most likely the way things are going to go in the near to distant future. All in all a great board by a great company who stands behind their product. I have only had to ever rma one Gigabyte board in my 40+ years of computer building and it went as smooth as silk.

Cons: none what so ever been a great board.

Other Thoughts: What else can be said if your looking to jump into skylake and need TH support GET THIS BOARD its amazing. You can count on Gigabytes dependability and support whenever you need it.
