This review is from: LINKSYS RE6400 AC1200 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
Pros: This was by far the easiest extender I have ever connected. I simply followed the instructions and used my smartphone to connect and set up everything. Simple and seamless. Small footprint. Does not block second outlet. Looks nice and cool. LED is not annoyingly bright. Brought fast AC to my garage that was usable and not spotty. I was just amazed at the simplicity of setup, and how well everything worked. Took me all of 3 minutes to set this up.
Cons: I suppose the only con would be having to have "ext" and the end. Which makes for having to connect to the extender network rather than a seamless connection. I suppose this would only be a problem for mobile devices.
Other Thoughts: I'm not sure why I didn't have the issues others did using the 192.168.1.1 address. Perhaps because I followed the instructions and connected to the extender with my smartphone before doing anything else. Also I was prompted to change the default login of the extender. Seems odd the other reviews did not have the same experience.
I didn't use the spot finder because I knew exactly where I was going to put this extender.
For me this extends my AC wireless to places it was unusable before. I like this Linksys RE6499 AC wireless Dual band Gigabit Range extender and would recommend it to anyone looking to extend their AC wireless range.
Pros: SD slot to expand the 8GB of storage. Up to an additional 32GB. Android 4.4. Quad core processor. Price.
Cons: If you are not looking straight at the display it becomes difficult to see what is being displayed. Poor viewing angle. Screen is not very responsive. Picture quality not that good. If you do not turn this tablet off the battery will drain in less than 24 hours. Only 512MB of ram.
Other Thoughts: I suppose for the price this is pretty nice. To me I would think maybe this would be nice for a young child. Might not seem fair to compare this to more expensive tablets, but what else can you compare this to?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I didn't think I would like the white and red. I was wrong actually looks pretty sharp. I suppose the LED Trace Path with Multi-Color Choices is cool. But I think it be cooler if this was all over the board and could have a seemingly moving multicolored lighting. USB3.1 Type-A and Type-C connectors, the new Metal Shielding around PCIe slots, separate audio section with EMI shielding, dual M.2 32Gbps slots, and even SATA Express ports. Dual nics. Sound Core 3D audio, upgradeable OP-AMPS. The on board sound is awsome. Best I have ever had. XMP for my memory worked as ti should.
Cons: Well these are the only cons I have (they sort of aren't cons) The first power on used on CPU video which I expected. Went and disabled CPU video saved exit let power on to no display shut down. Connect monitor to graphics card. Power on, no display. Switch connector to CPU video. Now I have display. Go into bios. On board video is disabled. Save and exit. Swap connector to graphics card. Now I have display. Go into bios set up HDD priority . Check that CPU video is still disabled, it is. Save and exit no display etc. Board kept going back and forth from graphics card to CPU video. Finally cleared bios and problem stopped. Never encountered that before. Bios navigation is best done the old fashion way using the arrow keys. Using mouse/cursor is slow and irritating.
Other Thoughts: This board has been running flawlessly. I do believe with a K CPU (I have the 6600K) you are overclocked rite out of the box. Mine was at 3900Mhz as default. CPUZ says the voltage is 1.7v for the CPU when clocked over 4500Mhtz. That is not correct. For me this is not a con but for some it might be. The accessories are a bit skimpy. I guess that is a way to save a couple bucks.
I would recommend this board to anyone thinking about building a Z170 machine.
