TP-LINK TL-WR842ND N300 Multi-function Wireless Router
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Unreliable WiFi 02/23/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR842ND N300 Multi-function Wireless Router

Pros: Cheap, USB port for network storage.

Cons: Same problems as someone else had posted. The Wifi speeds are inconsistent and randomly drop connection. I guess I'll give ddwrt a try and see if that helps.

Arctic Silver CMQ2-25G Céramique 2 Tri-Linear Ceramic Thermal Compound - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Plenty of paste for a fair price. Nice syringe applicator.

Cons: Super sticky, messy, and very difficult to spread.

Other Thoughts: If I had known how hard it was to apply a thin, even layer of this stuff, I would have never bought it. Yeah, it works, but I don't think it's worth the effort it takes to put it on. (and clean off.) As far as cooling goes, it's not any better than the cheaper brands I've tried. I'm really starting to doubt if thermal paste is even necessary. I recently saw a review on all of the top brands, including this one. Guess what performed just as well as them? Mayonnaise. yep.

ASRock 970 Performance AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice red and black color scheme, low price.

Cons: Front panel audio connections poorly placed toward the rear of the mobo. Bios unable to detect all of my fans. Paired with an FX 8350 and constantly gets BSOD.

Other Thoughts: I've had this mobo for a few days now and cannot get it to run stable with my AMD FX 8350. I've tried every possible bios configuration including underclocking and overclocking. I still end up with a BSOD. In the past I've avoided ASRock because low price, usually means low quality. Now I have proof. I took a chance on it because of the Newegg promo vids. Why would Newegg put their reputation on the line and make videos promoting these 970 boards? They're junk. Buyer beware!
