Pros: M.2 Sata is always a plus
White + Blue theme is always a plus. Especially when on a quality motherboard.
Reinforced PCI slots prevent sag
USB 3.1 for future proofing and super speeds
BIOS is actually quite user friendly
Nicely placed fan headers
Nicely placed CPU power header
Sata cables actually fit snugly
Cons: Overclock is not quite as strong as other motherboards
Motherboard is slightly longer length wise than other motherboards of ATX standard.
LINUX has had multiple issues.
The classification of the chipset shows up as generic(?)
Sata Ports 1+2 did not work (?) [Works on windows]
RAM Slot 2 would cause crash on Linux when populated.
This was with fresh installs of Debian and Arch.
Pros: * The device comes with an easy to setup gui and at the same time, lets you take control of your network
* Dual Band, Multi Channel, Guest SSID. Really, everything you need for every situation.
* Speeds are as advertised (~Speed fluctuation is around 5 - 8%)
* Typical bottom mounting holes
* Typical USB ports
* Typical Print Server system
* Typical WPS
* Typical Parental Controls
* IPSEC VPN (This is important for me, as this allows me to connect to work and manage our local servers. This is great!)
* Nice Packaging
* Has all you need to get started
This thing is a solid build design also. Easy to hide too.
Cons: I really wish it had more Ethernet ports. For the more advanced people; there is no Tomato/3rd Party support currently. This is quite disheartening but to be expected at the moment of me writing this
Other Thoughts: I did the typical speed tests and bench marking I do with routers. This router falls under the "as advertised" category. Nothing really different to report than what is in specs listed.
You know what you are buying and that is nice as a consumer.
Pros: TP-LINK's Support is absolutely amazing. I had received 2 DOA products and they shipped a new one to me next day and allowed me to cross ship.
Max output from this device came out to be 0.992 Gbps. 802.11ac support is amazing. Thanks to the small profile of this card, it did not get in the way of the graphics cards. A PCI Wireless Card that supports 5GHz band and 100$ is great.
Driver installation is quick on windows. The Linux "generic driver" only supports b/g/n.
Cons: I recieved this product for Eggxpert review and the first card had physical damage. I plugged in into my computer's pci slot anyways and (as I thought), it did NOT power up. I called TP-LINK and they cross-shipped another card. The second card was also DOA. I called them up again and they overnighted another card.
Other Thoughts: Sorry for the long wait on the review. I got 2 products that were DOA. Thanks to the support team, they overnighted both devices. It was a hinderance but TP-LINK sorted out all the issues. -2 for the DOA Sadly.
TP-LINK Support is 10/10.
