Pros: Read Speed: 82MB/s!! As close to advertised as possible. Range was 77-83MB/s, with 82MB/s coming up the most.
Read Speed with Camera: Lightning fast pull up of pictures that had been taken. No lag at all, making taking pictures much easier and fun.
Shockproof, waterproof and x-rayproof: Dropped in a glass of water for 5 min. No issues. Four foot drop had no impact. Standard testing for a phone drop.
1080 Content: Testing was done with 1080 content, and it had no issues with the amount of data.
Devices: Worked on phone, tablet, DSLR Camera and HD camcorder.
Speed In Use: Phone Camera - Next picture ability was a noticeable upgrade over other SD cards while in use on my phone, keeping me from missing shots. Excellent speed while recording videos on my HD Camcorder.
Cons: Write Speed: 10-13MB/s.
Other Thoughts: Have loaded and reloaded the card 12 times and have not encountered any error issues or loss of performance.
Formatted actual capacity is 58GB, not 64GB. That is normal for SD cards.
No buffering issues while reading 1080 video files.
This review is from: Netgear C6300 AC1750 Wi-Fi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router 2 in 1
Pros: 2-1: There are fare fewer wires laying on the floor, and it is easier to know what wires are going where. For someone concerned about space, this is the perfect combo to have, as you don't have two devices.
Size: It is no bigger than my current Netgear router, yet still has the modem.
Speed: 300Mps, like you would expect and as advertised by Netgear. Use of multiple devices at one time didn't effect speed or cause any drop issues. Had a laptop running a movie from YouTube, iPad also streaming a show and the other laptop streaming music. Excellent performance.
Dual Band: As with most routers today, it has 2.4 and 5Ghz bands to select. 5Ghz range was half that of the 2.4, as expected.
Range: Router performed the same as my current Netgear router, with good, not great coverage, with walls having a decent amount of impact. 3500sqft house, and was able to get 2 bars at the far edge, which is 40 feet away.
Netgear Genie: The program is a huge help. Saves you many times, as it will find the issues.
Cons: Update: Firmware update froze and had to be rebooted.
Dropped signals: At the edges of range, the modem would drop very easy. Had issues with smart TV's and dropping signals that my other Netgear router doesn't have.
Setup: Combo unit had issues with trying to get on Comcast broadband. Took five times of resetting the system.
UBS: Only 2.0, not 3.0, which it should be for the money.
Other Thoughts: Setup: Desktop iCore system. Comcast broadband.
It was great to be able to have fewer wires hanging around the floor due to having a 2-1. The performance was comparable to my current Netgear and Moto 3.0 setup, with no noticed difference. Was hoping for better range, but it was the same, with more dropped signals.
If I didn't have the current same setup, which I feel is the best value for the performance, then I would buy this combo. Netgear makes great value products.
Pros: Size - Small size that makes hiding it very easy. Lightweight design that is surprisingly still stable on a desk with all the cables attached.
Setup - Maybe the easiest router I have ever setup, as it is ready to go right out of the box with the use of the 'guest mode'. Firewall setup was very easy and fast.
Media streaming - The USB port can be used to stream your media directly to the network. Worked extremely well with my connected TV. This is my favorite feature on the router. Could have been a little easier to setup, but not that big of an issue. Wish my current router did streaming as well.
Cons: Performance - Range was about 15 feet before there was a 50% drop off in the 2.4 signal. At 25 feet there was no stable signal. 5.0hz band was even worse at a 50% drop off at 11 feet, with no stable signal at 21 feet.
Speed Performance - 2.4hz at 12feet is transmitting at only 233Mbps, which was the best results I was able to get on my laptop, which normally receives at 300Mbps from my current router. Do NOT overload the router with more than two devices going, as speeds dropped to 90Mbps when running a desktop, laptop and iPad at the same time with normal surfing.
Cable included - No label what cat the cable is. Have not seen that in a long time. Cat5e is what I have always received with other routers, and it is always labeled.
Features - 10/100 not gigabit ports? Why? At this price point, all others have gigabit ports.
Price - I have reviewed routers that cost $30-$40 that have better performance.
Other Thoughts: The unit would be a perfect first wireless router for someone with limited tech experience, that is not concerned with range or high-end performance. It is a near plug-n-play router, which is very hard to find. For an older person looking for a easy to use router, it is perfect.
Run the firmware upon setup to get the best performance.
Yes, it has 'ac' but as you cannot get the performance, it doesn't really matter.
I don't want to be too hard on the router, since it was so easy to setup and use, but it is hard to support a router with such a limited range and throughput.
