ASUS H87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fully featured for H87. Great documentation. Great RAID support and boots super fast.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: Hardware vendors are phasing out support for XP systems - this has to happen eventually. I think its unfair to dock the average rating by a full egg just because you want to use an outdated OS. Just like Linux users, you need to make sure, before purchasing, you can get the thing working if you're not going to use a mainstream OS.

D-Link Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-868L)

5 out of 5 eggs Very functional, strange design. 10/31/2013

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-868L)

Pros: It works and does what it says it will do. I had some major pains in connecting some of my devices to the thing (Wifi printers, thermostat, Macbook), but in the end it all worked out. Honestly, I never figured out why I was having so much trouble but I suspect it was the devices and not the router.

The throughput on this router is amazing. In fact, I don't think my gigabit internet connection is slowed at all by this router. Wifi connection speeds are also good. I'm not used to the DLink menus, but I'm getting used to them and they are fairly easy to navigate once you know where everything is.

Cons: Strange casing design. My nephew came over and pushed one of the LED indicators and the flat, semi-transparent, WAN and Power indicator piece broke loose and fell into the router casing. This bugged me to no end so I had to take the thing apart and fix that piece. Taking it apart required removing the thick plastic ring sticker that cover the screws on the top. This meant destroying this sticker. Once inside, the piece that had broken off did not just snap back into place, I had to tape it. Whatever held it place to start with was very weak. This seams like a design oversight that could easily be fixed on DLink's end.

The firmware menu system is also strangely arranged. Seems more set up for automation than anything else. In order to customize, you have to go digging for what you want.

Other Thoughts: Not really a problem, but this thing is tall. It did not fit in my cabinet where my old router was, so it has to be on the top. After removing the sticker, three silver screws are exposed as well which is not aesthetically pleasing. Maybe DLink can send a new sticker?

I'm still giving 5 stars. Throughput was what I was ultimately after and that's what I got with this router along with everything else I would expect.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL

Pros: Bought the Tri-Channel kit version of this memory, (12GB) and then decided to upgrade my whole computer to a dual channel system. Bought this stick to turn the tri-channel kit to a dual channel kit. It worked great even from mismatched sets and sticks manufactured months apart.

Cons: None.
