Pros: This is as easy as it gets for setup. You have numerous ways to setup the router, wired/wireless. The setup is straightforward.
Even extra features are simple, print server is plug-n-play.
Features include everything a basic home environment could want.
Had no issues in my time with it, no need to restart, no dropped connections.
Speeds are up to par with other AC1750 routers.
Cons: The router casing and stand aren't to my liking. I appreciate the design, however it feels cheap, not something I generally expect at this price point.
Stand could be troublesome, there isn't a feasible way to have it lay down. Personally prefer not to use a stand as it is prone to tipping if any wires get pulled by accident.
I did have issue with range. There are no external antennas. 5ghz coverage was well enough in a few rooms, but with a few walls in between, dropped connections could happen. Luckily I did not experience any, but I was on the verge on losing connection despite not being any farther away than testing with previous routers, on the other hand, the 2.4ghz band range was reliable.
Other Thoughts: I think it's a great router for inexperienced users looking to setup a home network. Experienced users should look elsewhere as there are other routers that have what you want and allow things such as custom firmware.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender. Wi-Fi Booster
Pros: Easy setup
Reliable, have not had to restart it. Have a 854RE as well and that is still going, no issues since I got it almost 6 months ago.
On sale currently, making this one a better value than the 854RE, especially for those wanting an ethernet jack.
Small and simple.
Great for mobile devices, allowing you to not worry about your connection anywhere in your house.
Also works as a work-around for devices with ethernet jack, but can't have a wifi card installed, allowing you to bring those previously unconnectable devices online.
Cons: Flashy blue light, keep this out of your bedroom or where you sleep. I have mine in the kitchen. Allows me to reach wifi from my car.
No other cons I can think of, it meets expectations and does its job without complaint.
Other Thoughts: I previously reviewed the 854RE and the only thing I would have liked it to have was an ethernet jack.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 360 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with 3*120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
Pros: It has very nice aesthetics.
Cables are braided and tubes are ribbed.
Without the fans, it's silent or inaudible, pairing this with your preferred fans would get you the noise/performance ratio you want.
360mm rad, if you have the space, this has a lot of cooling potential, allowing 3x120mm fans to push quite a bit of air.
Keeps my i7-3820k OC'd cool.
Installation is the usual affair and shouldn't be any trouble for anyone familiar.
Cons: Some parts feel cheaper, I don't feel that there is any concerns about the reliability or performance of them, but it does make it look worse up close than other coolers using better materials. I think it looks well enough considering.
Fans will be very noisy at full speed, rubber dampens vibrations of course, but the fans will be spinning quite fast. There isn't much need for them to run full speed, so you won't worry about that often or at all depending on your build/use.
For a 360mm AIO, it doesn't really perform better than some 240mm ones. If you don't have the space for 360mm, no need to fret, there are 240mm ones that perform similar.
Other Thoughts: Colors and style match my motherboard. Now I'm considering buying a new keyboard to match, currently using blue backlight, can't be changed. Luckily I can just change the color on my mouse. This just solidifies that keyboard upgrade i was thinking about earlier this year.READ FULL REVIEW
