Pros: Easy to setup, Wifi reaches across my house with great speeds.
My old Simple Netgear N300 w/ Stock antenna's was only able to get 0.02mb/sec on the opposite side of my new house.
This gets 18-26mb/sec which is almost my full internet speed.
This is about 50 feet away through multiple walls (same floor though) and using 2.4Ghz N.
The 5Ghz N gave a solid 26-32mb although your mileage will vary based on what adapter you are using.
I tested with a HTC One M9.
Everything else in the house is on 2.4Ghz and gets great signal.
Cons: No Ports for external antenna's.
Weird Design that is hard to hide
Other Thoughts: Bought it refurbished and figured I'd try it out instead of getting an ASUS router.
I had great results with DLink in the past from the DIR-612 days (still running after 10+ years in my parents house)
Pros: Cheaper than some other offerings.
High Sequential read/write speeds
Cons: Slow in real world situations.

Windows 10 takes about 10 seconds to get to the login screen. Applications take a few seconds to open and games take a while aswell.
The laptop its in is an i7-2630Qm and it boots slower than a AMD A6-1450 w/ a Sandisk Ultra Plus 120GB...
Programs open at about the same speed.
Other Thoughts: My Windows 10 machine here that I am typing on is using a Transcend SSD340 120GB, which benches with lower peaks but higher 4k-64thd reads and better mixed aswell as better 4k (but not by much).
It boots in 2-3 seconds and everything opens instantly... Its using an i7 that is a bit faster than the laptop i7..
Either the BX100 I got is bad or the drive is just really poorly done.
After comparing reviews it looked like the best bang for the buck by far. But didn't live up to the benchmarks and I benched about 27% lower than others with the same drive...
Pros: Great colors, great view angles, simple, tilt. Works for simple games too.
Cons: Not the most attractive monitor ever, but its fine.
Other Thoughts: This monitor actually uses a VA panel. Usually these are made by LG. It produces solid colors and is somewhere in between a TN & IPS.
The refresh rate is a bit slow, but I didn't have any problems with league of legends or warframe in the after hours.
