Pros: -Instantly quadrupled my speed: I had an old, old Linksys WRT54G, one of the most popular routers of all time, and I was only able to get around 10 mbps over its wireless (tested with the Speedtest.net app on my Android). When I upgraded to the Archer C7, I ran the test, and easily hit 44mbps on my phone. I'm not even sure how my speed is going that high because I only pay for 30mbps down.
-Good range: I can use it from two floors away on the other side of the house at 2 bars and still connected great. I haven't gone outside to see how far it reaches though.
-2 USB ports for a network storage device. I could easily plug in a WD 1tb external drive and use it as a complete backup for everything on my computer. I tend not to go over about 600gb of storage used up
-Wireless AC: The only thing that supports wireless AC in my home is my family's phones, but the great internet speed is awesome on them.
Cons: -Antennas are a bit large compared to my old router, but it is really worth it because of the great range
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this router to anyone seeking to use it for high definition video streaming (like netflix or a lot of youtube) or even to some gamers. I am a gamer myself and the speed is amazing for me now because now I can download my games four times as fast as before. I'd also recommend it to heavy downloaders.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks great, reset button on the front, good power button, the inside is fairly easy to work in, has a decent option for cable routing.
Cons: Really bad motherboard standoffs, the thumb screws for the side panels are terrible, and the front USB 2.0 ports are upside down for some reason.
Other Thoughts: I like this case overall, it fits nicely where i have it positioned, fitting my a10 6800k and ecs mobo. I like it for a first time builder.READ FULL REVIEW
