BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Improved my up and download speeds. Easy set up once you are at device web page. You have just about every setting there is. No bright flashing LED lights. I had no dead spots with 2.4Ghz anywhere in my home.
I kinda like how this router family looks.
1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0
IEEE 802.11 ac/n/g/a/b

Cons: For me a router must have good range 200 feet or more.
This one did not I could not consistently connect to this router from my garage with any device.
Like many routers with 5Ghz transmission the range is low. Part of the price for 5Ghz I know but I would have cut out at 30 feet no obstacles.
Only a 1 year warranty. I have purchased less expensive routers that had a longer warranty.
Like most routers today the included Ethernet Cable is pretty short.

Other Thoughts: This router is not for someone that knows little to nothing about setting up a wireless connection. The included instructions are just about nothing.
I had to use IE to initially log into the router, chrome wouldn't do it.
Unlike some others I had no problems changing and saving multiple settings.
As others have mentioned Buffalo steers users towards DD-WRT forums for firmware support. One would think they could do a bit better than that. But then again I had no problems.
All in all this seems to be a pretty good router. I really didn't have any issues.
Took away one egg only for range issue. For most users that wouldn't be an issue.

ASRock Z97 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The color. Normally I don't really care what color a MB is. But some how the black of the board is really nice and looks good with the blue heat sinks. Thunderbolt, M.2, SATA express. Has one of the best UIEF bios's I have used. Easy update of bios. Sound is pretty good. Nice layout. Great board not skimping on features.

Cons: Well for the price this is a great board.
So lets get a little picky. This really isn't a ATX size board. This board is about an inch shorter in width than a normal ATX board. No SLI support. Limited cross fire support. A couple more SATA cables would be nice.

Other Thoughts: I purchased an Intel Pentium G3258 (that I like to call the Pentium K) Easily overclocked to 4.6Ghtz..
In the last couple years I have really become an ASRock fan. I have never had to deal with their tech support. I'm wondering if there is really that much demand for PCI slots anymore. If there is this board has 2. This is a really great board for the price. Looks to be quality with quality components.
If you use the supplied disc to install drivers and select all, well it will want to install all so simply scroll through and uncheck anything you do not want installed.
You want to overclock? But don't really know how. Just select CPU/GPU optimized settings and BAM your done. (I'm guessing you may need a "K" processor, maybe not) X-fast ram is nice if you don't know how to set up a ram disc. Just be sure you are using enough ram. And don't use the back up to ... because that will slow down a restart unless you back up is to a SSD.
