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
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid wireless connections on both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz frequencies even in a 1300 sq. ft apartment. The USB ports work great.

Cons: Did not purchase this from Newegg as the “P” version is only sold at a large retail store and it is only made for that retailer

Other Thoughts: After reading the reviews here and looking at the negative reviews as well, I was hesitant at first. I then wondered what was the difference between the 2 versions - after all, they both are AC1900. I then found an article that someone wrote where he purchased both versions and took them apart. On the “P” version, there were a few improvements that were made which resolves the issues that are found in the negative reviews here. The USB ports have shielding on them to improve the speed and reliability of the ports, the processor was upgraded and there are extra heat sinks added and some other minor revisions made. So, I purchased the “P” version from the retail store and I am very happy with it. I purchased the RT-AC68P to replace a WNDR-4300 that on a good day, would give me 3 bars on the 2.4 GHz even in the same room as the router and forget about the 5 GHz which would only get 1 bar. It was a disappointment because I had the WNDR-3800 and it was great. So far, The RT-AC68P has exceeded my expectations as I now have 5 full bars on the 5 GHz bans as well as on the 2.4 GHz even at 1300 square feet away.

Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA641 2TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Liked the first one I purchased for a new build for my son that I purchased another.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: An enterprise class hard drive for the price of a standard hard drive is a fantastic deal. I had to replace my WD 500G Black edition HD as it was emitting a loud humming sound which was really annoying after a while. Installed this HD, and no more humming. It also sped up my system as my boot drive is an SSD and when I had connected the WD to it, it slowed it down a little. Installed this HD and it is running at full speed! The hard drive was shipped quickly. Would buy it again.

Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA641 2TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Hard Drive and Capacity for the price. Ran the Stress test from HGST for 3 days and it passed with flying colors.

Cons: Not a super quiet drive, but it is fine me. I am sure some people who purchase it may think it is kind of noisy but remember that this is an Enterprise class hard drive - which is usually installed in a server in a room by itself so the emphasis on noise is not a concern - it is on reliability which is what I look for in a hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive to add it to another Hitachi drive that I purchased over 4 years ago and has been running almost 24x7 and has not failed or has developed any bad sectors. I needed extra storage space so I decided to purchase another Hitachi drive. Very happy with the purchase. However, this is my first experience with GOHardDrive and though it is not their fault, they shipped it quickly and USPS picked it up and it sat in their USPS facility in CA for 3 days before it started to shipped to my location. It was shipped Priority 2 days and took 5 days to arrive - luckily, I was not in a rush or needed it quickly.
