ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Many advanced features. Adjustable antennas are removable if you want to upgrade them. The Asus firmware and software updates have been easy enough to install.

Fast & stable

Cons: The printer port / USB port have proven trouble some to use - Not Plug & Play. (-1 egg)

Unit does tend to run Hot as it uses about 10 watts of power.

Very Poor cooling design (like most routers) the Design team makes the case "stylish" rather than functional for natural cooling.

Other Thoughts: My Cooler Master case has a large fan on the top so ** I passively cool the Router, seems to improve reliability / stability.

Hey - ASUS - put a fan in your routers or add a grill on the top for natural convection to keep this 10 watt beast cool.

Your going to need to read up on the feature if IT networking is not your field - LOTS of great features - may overwhelm the casual user.

LG 24X DVD Burner - Bare Drive 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model GH24NS95

Pros: When it worked it was adequate but not specifically good at being quick or quiet.

Cons: DIE in less than 2 years; was used less than 3 dozen time in a secondary PC. My PCs are protected by UPS to prevent surge of unstable voltage issues and I always follow proper anti-static discharge procedure. So, their is no reasonable reason after so ;little use that this LG 24X DVD drive decides one day to not only stop working but actually stops the PC from completing POST.

Other Thoughts: Buy something else. I have never had a DVD/ CD drive just role over and play dead before. The fact that it stopped the PC from booting would lead me to believe something shorted-outr on the control board. I tried new SATA cable and 2 different SATA ports, it is definitely a dead drive.

Acronis True Image 2015 - 1 PC (DVD Case)

1 out of 5 eggs Avoid this JUNK --- Acronis True Image 2015 - DOES NOT WORK - Win 10 Pro 64bit clean install 12/31/2015

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2015 - 1 PC (DVD Case)

Pros: NONE - JUNK AVOID the hassle, get something else, this product does not work.

Would not even give this junk 1 egg, but Newegg forces you to chose at least 1 egg.

Cons: Uploaded the latest version even though I bought a disk. Failed with error code when I tried to use software after installing. Error code given by the software was not found on the Acronis website???? After 2 plus hours of reading documents, searching Acronis & other sites - NO Solution was found.

So, on a NEW OS install of Windows 10 Pro 64bit, after installing my PAID copy of Acronis and entering a 64 digit security code, the software fails to work and the error code thrown has no known document on Acronis's website.

The latest version of True Image 2015, I downloaded from Acronis and it is supposed to work with Windows 10 - it DOES NOT WORK

Other Thoughts: My technical skills are very high; been in the IT realm for over 20 years.
Acronis True Image 2015, fails to work on a clean install of Windows 10 Pro 64bit.

The error code thrown by the software, has no corresponding document on Acronis's website.

AVOID the PAIN, avoid the product, it is junk and NOT properly supported with documentation on Acronis's website.
