Pros: Worked great - when it worked. More features than you can shake a stick at.
Cons: After just 3 days it started dropping the WAN connection. Tested this by plugging a PC and a cheap rosewill RNX 300 router to the cable modem. Worked great in both instances. Then plugged ASUS back in and rebooted everything. Still no connect after an hour of repeatedly trying. Then It became really slow and unresponsive just trying to get into the router setup. Even plugged in with a gigabit wired connection. So already having problems less than a week in is totally unacceptable. Boxed it back up and it is going back for a refund.
Other Thoughts: It appears that these are hit or miss, out of the gate, but it appears from reviews of long term owners, that they have long term reliability issues with diminishing signal strength, connection timeouts, and more and more frequent reboots. Sorry ASUS I gave you a try, but your product needs to just work, first and foremost, then worry about the bells and whistles and gee whiz features.
Was really no point calling tech support as it worked well for three days, and I really don't want to spend many hours trying to get the thing to work (likely fruitlessly). On top of that, all of the reviews pointing out longer term reliability issues have encouraged me to just get a refund while I still can.
Pros: Lots of USB ports!
Cons: No more cons! Thought I had a bad VIA usb controller on board, but it ended up being a faulty flash card reader that I had plugged into one of the USB 2.0 board connections. Never thought a card reader could cause so much havoc!
Other Thoughts: Apologies to Gigabyte for previous negative review. Your product turned out to be excellent once I figured this out!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked great for 2 days. Still works great with the VIA usb controller disabled
Cons: Started blue screen crashing on shutdown and would reference the VIA usb driver. Progressed worse from there to the point where the system would not even get past the login without becoming totally unresponsive. Booted in safe mode and disabled VIA controller now system works great but has 4 completely useless USB 3.0 ports on the back of my case.
Other Thoughts: Returning this and will get something else.READ FULL REVIEW
