This review is from: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Good board, good features but there is a catch.
Cons: If you use the wireless feature of this board and or in combination with the software. Your system will power on by it self. Yes you read that correctly. Google it or go to Tom's hardware and read about it. There are some things you can do to get around the issue.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When it works the features are nice. good signal strength.
Cons: Where do I start. The wps feature on this router will start up when the router is rebooted or powered on after initial setup. The problem is, that when the wps feature is running, it stops the radio functions of the router. There is no way to keep this from happening. In short, if you need to reboot etc for any reason, (which you will). your router will be useless for Wi-Fi. until the WPS stops. I have had it go for more than a day before. it is so frustrating. I have done my research and many others have found this problem. Netgear is aware of it. There support is frustrating. (oversees). they treat you as they would treat themselves. (as if you know nothing). They had me return my router to newegg and I was sent a new one. This does not help!
2. The DLNA server will not update your files as you add them to your attached usb storage. I have fought with this to. although you can access the added files from your computer through the network drive, the DNLA server feature will not see them. I had their tech support try to help with this as well. other than having me log into the readyshare app on the computer to add the files, they were not much help and the problem still persists.
Other Thoughts: I think Netgear tried to add to many features to this device. some are not needed and most do not work as they should. I hope they can work the bugs out of this device and if they do, it will be worth buying. But until they do, I would not buy this again. I have wanted to throw it against the wall a few to many times.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Black 12X Blu-ray Burner SATA BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS
Pros: affordable, easy, works as described.
Despite some of the reviews I read, this drive does play Blu Ray movies, and is not loud at all. I guess they must have gotten the ones that had been dropped on the floor or something.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
