Linksys WRT1200AC Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band and Wi-Fi Wireless Router with Gigabit and USB 3.0 Ports and eSATA

Pros: The goal was to replace an aging Linksys WRT54GL with this much faster, much more capable state of the art WRT1200AC. The older WRT54GL's max Lan speed of 54 mbps. was unable to perform at our internet provider's 50 mbps. rated transfer rate. The prospect of upgrading to Gigabit LAN alone for the home network was reason enough to make the move. In addition, our old router did not provide Wireless N capability. The WRT1200AC will be adding Wireless N to our home network with wireless transfer rates capable of up to 400 Mbps.

Before installing the router I viewed the enclosed Quick Start CD and as suggested simply unplugged the old Linksys router and plugged in the WRT1200AC in it's place. I had planned to configure manually. I chose to configure manually, but was directed to the Linksys Smart WiFi logon page. I had to create an account and logon to the page before I was able to configure the WRT1200AC. The creation of the account was outlined in the quick start guide, but I was caught off guard that this step was required in order to do the configuration manually I had pre-planned. I had taken the time to write down all the settings from the old 54GL's configuration software before making the switch. After creating the required account and verifying with Linksys regarding the activation email link sent to my inbox, the network's main computer was online.

I found navigating the Linksys Smart WiFi configuration surprisingly very user friendly. I will mention once the Linksys account has been created, typing 198.162.1.1 into the browser will bring up access to the router configuration page just as typing in linksyssmartwifi.com does. Setting up the router name, password and wifi passwords are straight forward. My main computers are configured with static, fixed addresses which the router acknowledge without issue. My wireless devices, iphone, ipad and notebook connected wirelessly with a little finesse getting Windows 7 wireless network connections to properly recognize the newly established wireless network connection created by the WRT1200 AC. A Windows 8 notebook required going into Windows Network and Sharing Center to create the wireless connection to the router from there. The ipad connected at the 5 GHZ speed that was not available with the old router. I had my home network connected and up and running in about 30 minutes.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have two security systems, one accessible from remote location, with twelve online cameras. The old 54GL required I open the required router ports for these security system cameras to be viewed from remote locations. There are features I have yet to try with Linksys WRT1200AC, but the most welcomed surprise with my router upgrade was not having to tediously open all the ports previously required to view my security cameras online. The same for the home Slingbox, no ports to open for viewing. I should not fail to mention I now have download speeds of 53 mbps./sec. with the Linksys WRT1200 AC installed. The old 54GL gave me a max download speed of 33 mbps./sec.

May buy a second unit to upgrade the office network. Some research on my part would be required beforehand to determine how difficult the office network configuration would be regarding online imaging equipment the office network uses.

The Linksys WRT1200 AC is state-of-the art, high performance and rich with latest technology features as well as being surprisingly user friendly. I would recommend this router to anyone desiring to have the benefits of cutting-edge networking technology.

5 out of 5 eggs This is a Samsung Drive 01/06/2015

This review is from: HP DVD Burner SATA Model 447310-001 LightScribe Support

Pros: Works. Windows System Information identifies this drive as a Samsung model TSSTcorp TS-H653Z. Unsure where Newegg came up with the HP model 447310-001.

The specs for the drive I received look like this:

Samsung TS-H653 16x DVD RW DL Drive General Features: Black bezel
•20x DVD+R write speed 20x DVD-R write speed 12x DVD-RAM write speed 48x CD-R write speed
•8x DVD+RW rewrite speed 6x DVD-RW rewrite speed 32x CD-RW rewrite speed 16x DVD read speed
•48x CD read speed

I needed a Lightscribe drive. This drive works fine. Just hope it last a while.

Cons: Some confusion about the model. Newegg listed no performance specs.

Other Thoughts: The shipping carton was excellent with a lot of foam padding to protect the unit during shipment. Ship time was slow. Took about ten days to receive it.
