This review is from: Asus RT-AC68P Dual-band Wireless AC1900 Gigabit Router-Certified Refurbished
Pros: The best thing about this router is the ability to configure it how you like. As soon as you get this router google Merlin firmware and install it. With Merlins firmware you get a lot more features, with all the bugs ironed out.
I have 20 devices that connect to this router ranging from smart phones, tablets, PC's, laptops, kindles and printers all of which work seamlessly with wifi.
I can set parental controls to whichever MAC address I wish, I can set a time when internet connection will disable for any MAC address with a nice weekly calendar GUI.
You can share USB 2.0 and 3.0 drives over your network as there is a port for each. The coverage is good, I live in a 3 story house and the reception on the top floor is pretty good considering the router is in the basement.
Cons: The only con is the router runs a little hot, but I have a small fan sitting behind the router and it provides enough fresh air to drop the dual CPU's down to 60C from 80C, just bad airflow in the router case is the cause as there is only a small area where air can rise out of the router.
Other Thoughts: I've had this thing for about 4 months and I am still buzzed by how many features it has, doubt I will upgrade for a long time.
Just be smart and get it on a decent surge protector or as I do, put it on a UPS for piece of mind. I suspect the people that say it died a week later is probably due to sudden surges and the poor thing got fried.
Get it, you won't regret it.
This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE
Pros: Its quick when it works, I have 2 that have had no issues for over 3 months. I have already given this product 2 reviews of 5 eggs, this one however is going to have to get 1 egg.
It was a combo deal with a 500Gb SSD which I cannot return to newegg as its what i am using right now and I can't be without a PC for any length of time.
Cons: It died when moving lots of small files from my wife's laptop before a reformat to a new OS. She lost a heck of a lot of important college work and I will never hear the end of it either.
Other Thoughts: They are really great drives but no one should have to tolerate a lemon and just eat the cost.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1. Its a Samsung (the best in SSD's bar none).
2. Its 500Gb.
3. Its in my PC
4. It didn't cost an arm and a leg.
5. It came with a free 128Gb PNY USB3.0 flash drive.
Cons: Read and write times are exactly as advertised, no need to give benchmarks.
The price difference between the 120 - 250 - 500gb was a no brainer, get the 500Gb, you won't regret it.
