Pros: -Lots of power for a small price tag
-I use this on many customers mid to high end game builds
-Pairs nicely with a GTX 960
-Cooler Master branded fan
-Cheap chipset (AM3+)
Cons: *Insert hotter than joke here*
-Yes this thing runs hot. Really hot @125Watts. Most customers complain of fan noise soon and need a large after market cooler. (Especially if you go cheap on the case.)
This review is from: Asus RT-AC68P Dual-band Wireless AC1900 Gigabit Router-Certified Refurbished
Pros: Great Router with 1GHz dual core CPU (P version only)
Fast LAN speeds (125 down with comcast)
2.4Ghz and LAN work great
Cons: 5GHz band does not work at all. I went through all the troubleshooting steps with ASUS (factory reset, flashing firmware etc)
I also tired flashing Merlin's firmware. Nothing will make the 5ghz band work at all. It was a good price, but now I have to deal with a return.
Other Thoughts: This claims to be "Certified by Asus". I wonder how it was shipped when the 5ghz doesn't even turn on. That should have been a red flag.
For the record I have purchased 3 refurb ASUS router from Newegg and this is the first to have an issue.
