ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great signal and coverage. Signal and connection seems more clean. Nice looking router. GUI is easy to navigate.

Cons: Replaced my Linksys e4200 with this. Got it setup "fairly" easily Friday night. Happy with the purchase. Wake up Saturday morning and no internet, but am able to wirelessly log in to the Asus admin console (browser LAN but no WAN. Reboot...nothing. Reset...nothing. Called Asus support and after 30 minutes or so, tech tells me his recommendation is to take it back and swap it out for another one, go to the Asus AC66 model or get money back. We hang up and I continue to fiddle with it. I perform a factory reset and everything starts to fire again. Fast forward to Monday morning...internet connection is down again, but I can still log in to the admin console. I have now connected my e4200 back up again and am attempting to make sure that it isn't my ISP or my cable modem and will watch to make sure my e4200 doesn't start to magically drop also. I never had problems with my e4200 in the past. I just wanted to upgrade to the latest and greatest.

Other Thoughts: I have noticed that the DHCP setting in the Asus admin console has a field indicating the Lease Expiration time frame and it has been reading "Expired" and a block below this shows "Renewing", but it never renews. I'm thinking this is related to me losing my internet connection, but why it won't renew after a few milliseconds is unknown to me. I've also noticed that the product box says it is a "RT-AC68U" but in the admin console it shows "RT-AC68R." This is confusing. The Asus support person said this is only a matter of different vendors... ??? If my current e4200 stays connected to the internet for the rest of this week without any issues similar to the Asus router, I will return my Asus router and opt for the new Linksys AC model.

Pros: Cheap and made of metal.

Cons: careful of the sharp edges! I sliced my finger open on the back putting a PCI card in.

Other Thoughts: For $25 clams this is a good deal for anyone on a budget.

Pros: Allows you to mount your SSD into a bay in your PC. Works good. Made of high quality materials. Comes with all the necessary hardware. Cheap cost.

Cons: After paying almost $100 for a 64Gb SSD, you would have thought that this $7 mount would have come with the SSD, but NOOOO! Didn't take an egg off for this, but it did contribute to my final decision for the loss of an egg. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is the best with products, speed of shipping and post sales support. My beef with this purchase, and this has happened before, is when you pay extra for RUSH ORDER/PROCESSING to get the ball rolling and get your product quicker, they send it out UPS (2 thumbs up), it gets near your location, and then they hand it off to the USPS (2 thumbs down). That is what is wrong with this country. You start out private sector (very efficient) and lateral to a government entity (USPS=very inefficient). I think Moses got to my house before my product did. Two products ordered the same day on different order #s. The UPS got to my house in 2 days. The UPS/USPS took 5 days.
