Pros: Sad to see bad review overall score due to bios burns and inept hardware building. Put this thing together back in 9/2014, has worked flawless since Day 1. Needed no Bios update to get going, have updated since, still no probs. Put a 5930X in mine, kicks anything it is posed to.
Cons: No cons, maybe price of DDR4 when I bought it, to seems to have come down greatly - price of being new
Other Thoughts: I've read through a number of the "disappointments" and from the descriptions, can think of numerous things that could be wrong, besides the board. Wish more people with positive experience do reviews, than just those who have a prob. Words of advice - do a little more homework, do a little more napping, patience works with every build, even an AMD build!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-828DRU AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router
Pros: Setup super easy for the novice. Once log on, it'll run u through a wizard. The signal is the best I have ever seen. I've got a long house, it reaches the entire length, and I assume it'll go much further. I can pick it up 4 houses down with solid signal.
Cons: This advanced settings has everything most would want. Wish it came a little more. Don't need something like a Mikrotek router, but this is more on the lite side. still not enough to ding an egg. Had to buy from that "other" retailer, but am a super duper Newegg buyer for sure.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend this before many others for a AC3200. Had an Asus prior, not as strong and got hot as heckles. This has stayed relatively cool for a week now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Synology DS214+ Diskless System DiskStation 2-Bay Network Storage
Pros: This is a sleek truly performing NAS, the 1.33GHz dual-core processor supported by a fixed 1GB of DDR3 memory is 2x that of the DS213+. As most have mentioned, the DSM software is straight forward and really easy to use. Startup was a breeeeeze. I also like the ease of the USB 2.0 port to plug in a memory stick & copy files to the storage folder. Also, this abby is easy on the juice, my meter tagged it under 16W during some heavy transfers and 19W for a major stream. The fan doesn't appear to be anything special, but to be fair, I am not sure of the make.
Cons: Synology's spec speed of 208MB/sec reads & and 153MB/sec writes is under scenario of aggregating the bandwidth of the two Gigabit network ports to create a data pipe to the unit. Not your typical setup for most of us. I'm hitting 100-110MB/sec reads, 85-95MB/sec writes, which is still good enough for my needs but it isn't what the maker is claiming. I believe most NAS makers do this though.
Other Thoughts: I give it a 5 egger, it is worth the extra I spent and expected in performance.READ FULL REVIEW
