This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)
Pros: Great router. Super easy set up. Genie software to manage router does a good job. Best web interface I've seen if you don't use Genie software. Really improved range of my wi-fi network. Gigabit speeds on wired, as expected.
Cons: Manual says to position antennae in vertical position, with the outer two of three antennae angles slight outward. My antennae flop over like limp penises. No amount of tightening will work. Contacted tech support and was twice told to read the manual or return unit to reseller. I wasn't happy with results and don't want to be without a router for who knows how long while waiting for a replacement. Don't like idea of paying another $12-$14 for shipping on top of any already expensive purchase.
Other Thoughts: Netgear is all talk, no show. Tech support has no customer-oriented answers, slow to respond to tickets and unable to think outside of the box.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Not many blu-ray drives come with software. If yours doesn't, you're looking at having to shell out close to $100 to get what you need. One of the reasons I bought this drive is that it supposedly comes useable software. The problem is that it's Cyberlink's, which in my experience is junk. My fears were magnified--this suite won't even install on my machine, which is nothing unusual--Windows 7. Now, I'm looking to RMA the drive and getting something that will actually do what I paid for.
Other Thoughts: The drive might be great. I don't know, because I can't use it because of Cyberlink's poor product.READ FULL REVIEW
