Pros: This case is huge! This is a good thing. Big case means great heat distribution. The case comes with 3 huge fans and filters that are removable and cleanable. The front filter is huge and comes out with the press of the top corners and can we cleaned with water, dried, and put back on. The PSU mounts on the bottom of the case and also has a removable filter. There are two large vents on the side of the case and one huge one on the top that is not covered by a filter. The top vent has a nice plastic cover to keep the dust out and a notch to let the heat out. The case comes with pre-installed MB mounts and I used an Asus P8 Z77-VLK MB and had no problems mount it in this case. The case has two huge hinged doors on the left and right side of the case. Cable routing was a dream and there is plenty of room to hide all of the cables and make the case look like a pro built it. The HD bays are sweet and have quick release tabs and little pins that hold the drives in place without any screws. The optical bays are the same. There is also a bay for multiple. SSD's
Other Thoughts: I come from the age of cases with a big window on the side so you can see your technology at work. I had a Velocity micro case that I was using and put everything into this case. Two HD's , Two Optical drives, PSU, MB, Liquid Cooling, and a LED light bar. Everything fit perfectly and there is still a ton of room! The LED lights shine nicely through the front grill and I do not miss my window as much as I thought I would.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy set up, interface is simple and user friendly. Low profile design that doesn't shout "look at me" and that is a good thing. The activity lights are also in the back so you do not notice is blinking away out of the corner of your eyes. Mobile app for managing your settings. The router also has parental controls and priority settings.
Cons: Lets start with the interface. You cant communicate with the router by entering a default IP you have to install the provided CD that configured the router for you. The only settings are in the Smart wifi app/web page. The settings are basic to say the least and this might be a plus for user's who are not familiar with advanced router settings. The priority settings give you two options, preferred and normal. I would like more control over these settings.Another issue is the poor range of this router but if you have a decent extender then it's not a issue.
Other Thoughts: For a N600 dual band router with this price range it is a good deal. I will run this router as my main router and see how it grows on me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice and small and installed quickly. I paired this with my Asus N600 Router and at first my router couldn't see the network adapter. After rebooting my router I was able to see the card. The card is fast and the included software is easy to use and has a pleasant UI. The antennas are almost to close to my case and my cables on the back of my case were touching them and I wonder if this could effect reception. I was getting 4 out of 5 bars so I doubt it is an issue.
Cons: Had to reboot router to find the card on my network. (not really a con)
Other Thoughts: If your pairing with a TP-Link router you will probably have better performance than pairing with a different brand router.READ FULL REVIEW
