Pros: -picture quality is outstanding
-no blur noticed
-ips colors are accurate
-minimal bezel (nearly edge to edge)
-25" 2560x1440 is denser than 27"or28" at same resolution
Cons: -shaky stand
-no VESA mount
-plastic silver bottom bezel is not flush with panel
-a few dead pixels
-osd buttons on the bottom (a pain to use)
-ugly bottom bezel
Other Thoughts: This is a great panel with some engineering flaws. The stand is shaky, that means if there are any slight movements on the table whether typing or using the mouse quickly the vibration will get sent to the monitor and shake. The other cons are self explanatory. Apparently the Dell u2515h ($349) uses the same panel but better stand, VESA mounts, USB hub, and out of box color calibration. I would go that route and pay the extra $90.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Nice form factor
-Auto shutoff works
-On/off switch on the back
-UASP USB 3.0 for optimum speeds
-No excess vibration sounds
Cons: -power brick at the end of the cable
-plastic end caps
Other Thoughts: I have a 4TB Hybrid Seagate 3.5" HDD that I use with this enclosure and read/writes are 167MB/s over USB3.0. This enclosure is inexpensive and does the job. Haven't noticed any issues at all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream AC1900 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
Pros: -Minimal lighting
-Maximum speeds out of ISP
-Easy to setup and automatically configures IP
-USB3.0 and USB2.0
-Wireless AC1900 + MIMO
-Configure via browser (No software needed)
-4 Ethernet ports
Cons: -USB3.0 transfer speeds via WIFI are slow ~20MB
-MIMO Technology not noticeable from user
-Lacks VPN and advanced router settings
Other Thoughts: Just like its predecessor the WRT1900AC but with MIMO Technology and one less antenna. The package includes the router, 3 removable antennas, installation CD, ethernet cable, power adapter, and quick start guide. Installation is simple, just hook up the ethernet cable to the router and restart the the modem - it will configure itself automatically. Make sure you use CAT5E minimum or CAT6 cables to fully maximize your LAN network and internet speeds especially if your internet exceeds 100Mbps.
The wifi defaults to the provided SSID and you can access the linksys settings by connecting to the network and typing “192.168.1.1”. The network settings itself are VERY BASIC and will satisfy the average consumer that simply use the router for WIFI. The only adjustments I make in the settings are changing the wifi name and channels to the best one in my area. I use the Wifi SCAN on a MAC that tells me the best 2.4GHz and 5GHz channel to use and I change them accordingly in the linksys setting. I also disable media prioritization as I do not want any throttling of my devices. There are guest access, parental controls, and security settings. NO VPN settings- Again, VERY BASIC settings that are available.
You can also attach a USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 hard drive to the back of the router. This does work great for movies as I have a Nexus Player and can access the HD that is connected to the back of the router via WIFI. It is a great feature since you can watch movies off the HD through Wifi. File transfers VIA wifi to the USB3.0 HD are very slow at around ~20MB, so don’t expect to transfer large files via WIFI fast.
The reliability has been great and I have about 12+ network devices connected at once. Rokus, Mac minis, iPhones, PS4, PCs (LAN), MacBooks, iPads, Android phones all connect via WIFI and work FANTASTIC. In a 2-story house about 60 FEET away I can get MAX internet speeds (on AC devices) as if I was hard-wired.
I am currently paying for 150Mbps/10Mpbs internet speeds from my ISP and through WIFI upstairs my actual speeds are 172Mbps/12Mpbs with a wireless AC device. I am actually meeting and exceeding my ISP speeds which is what you expect from a router.
Also, there is very minimal lighting on the router itself- only the Linksys logo lights up blue and blinks when their is no internet connectivity.
Overall, this is a great looking and performing router but with basic network configurations. Despite the lack of configurations it has suited me well for my needs in streaming movies, internet downloading, internet browsing, online gaming, and streaming movies via attached USB HD. Although it is advertised as MIMO, in actual every day usage it is negligible on the user end. Compared to the WRT1900AC I don’t notice a measurable difference in speed. But, I do notice that internet browsing response and wifi range has been better for my devices. For the price of $199.99 it is expensive but you are paying for a reliable router that you can simply set up and forget about and one that maximizes the most out of your ISP speeds.
