Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Good performance, not so good reliability 08/14/2014

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: Fast, relatively easy to setup.

Cons: Unreliable, fairly pricey

Other Thoughts: I'm using this primarily as a wireless AC bridge, it's wifi extender properties are mostly just a bonus. My main problem with this unit is it's reliability. I need to power cycle it about once every 24 hours because for whatever reason, it will not connect to half the websites or even local resources I want to access. Steam will not connect, Origin will not connect, my outlook won't be able to connect to gmail. Several websites will fail to display, and I can't even access my home/media server. Pressing the switch off then back on will fix all these issues for about 24 hours and the cycle repeats. I routinely check for updated firmware, but have not found anything so far. The router it's linked to is a Netgear R6300 which has been a very solid performer.

Linksys EA6500 Dual Band AC1750 Gigabit Wireless Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It looks kind of cool

Cons: WIFI didn't work, almost at all.

3 strikes you're out. Went through three of these before returning the last one and buying a Netgear R6200 instead. See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: First unit: wifi clients on either radio (2.4ghz/5ghz) would randomly disconnect, or remain associated but not pass any traffic.

Second Unit: would not broadcast SSID at all on either radio

Third Unit: Same behavior as the first. It wasn't just one device that would drop, but ALL of them ranging from mobile phones, to laptops to wireless printers.

Purchased a Netgear R6200, set my SSID and passphrases the same as they were programmed on the Linksys and all the devices connected on their own, and stayed connected.

Linksys is usually my first choice for consumer routers, I've never had an issue with them and i prefer their interface over the other brands, but this experience will have me thinking twice. It would be bad enough if this was on a bottom of the line device, but there's no excuse for this performance on their flagship consumer device, and yes, the routers were updated to the latest firmware.

ARCTIC Accelero TT II VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, Dual Quiet 92mm PWM Fans, SLI/CrossFire
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very quiet and cools exceptionally well. Comes with plenty of sinks

Cons: Could have used a bit more thermal compound, card is less sturdy with this cooler vs the refrence cooler

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace the refrence cooler on my 5870 becuase the fan was starting to fail. Cooling wise it's excellent. GPU temps have not exceeded mid 60's with a mild overclock and fan speed has been under 30% at all times vs 40% and 90C for the refrence design. The removal of the backplate and the fact that the refrence cooler was also bolted to the bracket means the card has significantly more flex than before.
