This review is from: ASUS RT-AC66W Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router
Pros: Very fast, easy UI to navigate in. Doesn't run too hot. WIFI signal strength (N and AC), is adequate but nothing to brag about.
Cons: The WIFI connection (AC and N) doesn't seem to be the most stable in the world. Occasional reboots are necessary because connection is dropped and renewing from the computer side doesn't work. A Brother printer plugged into the USB port gets disconnected in some way. The printer is still recognized in the router's UI, but computers will not see it. Only a reboot restores functionality. Sometimes the connection to the ISP (PPPOE connection) is lost and will not re-establish automatically, so of course, another reboot.
Other Thoughts: The frequent WIFI and USB disconnections are annoying enough to take off 2 eggs. It doesn't seem like I'm the only one with these problems. ASUS doesn't seem to have very good quality control on these things or maybe the hardware is just mediocre. To be fair, in my experience, I've never owned a router that I've been totally satisfied with. Every one seems to have some annoying issues such as these. Wireless technology just inherently sucks I guess.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Pretty good deal after rebate. Very nice picture and colors. Great big 28" screen, a pleasure to look at coming from a 22".
Cons: Only 1920 x 1080 which is relatively low for a 28" screen, but it's more than sufficient for my needs. As many other have stated, the stand is flimsy and monitor shakes and vibrates if your desk is not rock solid.
Other Thoughts: I don't use the in-panel speakers so can't comment on that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Acronis True Image 2016 - 3 Computer - Download
Pros: None that I can tell
Cons: I tried using this to cloning an Windows OS SSD. I liked that the program does the cloning outside of Windows, but after it was done the new SSD would not boot. So just a waste of money. I had to clean install after having wasted hours on this. To be fair, no other cloning program I tried worked either, but those were free apps. I thought a paid app would have some more tricks under its sleeves.
Other Thoughts: I would stick with a free app next time like Macrium or Paragon for nonOS drives. For OS drives, may have to do a fresh install unfortunately.READ FULL REVIEW
