NETGEAR R7500-100NAS Nighthawk X4 AC2350 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Smart Router
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Another aweful Netgear Router 12/11/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR R7500-100NAS Nighthawk X4 AC2350 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Smart Router

Pros: Zero

Cons: Reboots every couple of hours just like the R7000

Other Thoughts: Another garbage router from Netgear
Don't waste your time and money Beta testing this half baked development hardware.

TP-LINK TL-WN725N  Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's cheap.
Easy to install
It works

Cons: It's cheap.
Transfer speeds are dismal, 5 to 6 MB/sec dismal on a large single file transfer.

Other Thoughts: Installed on an Asus ROG i7 laptop with 12gb RAM. Turned off built in wireless. Let Win 7 x64 detect device and pointed to driver directory of included CD. No issue getting to work. Connected to a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router running DD-WRT in access point mode only. Connected to an SSD i7-3930K workstation (Gigabit 24 port switch Cat7 shielded) to test file transfer speeds.
This would be a cheap fix to replace broken wireless on a laptop that is close to the router/access point. I would not purchase this for myself however. Performance is aweful.

GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-SLI LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Tons of options in UEFI BIOS for tweaking
Good price point
Came with latest BIOS out of the box

Cons: It took a LOT of work to get medium 4GHz overclock stable on a fully unlocked 20th Anniversary Pentium dual core CPU. These CPU's usually do 4.4 to 4.8GHz easily.
This is while running G.Skill Trident 2400MHz memory at 2133.

Other Thoughts: Intel G3258 unlocked CPU
G.Skill Trident 2x4GB 2400MHz RAM
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooler

I should have been able to raise CPU V.core, dial in the XMP on the ram and its voltage and set the multiplier. Instead I found myself raising many chipset and CPU voltages to get stability.

I own many other boards Z97, Z87, B85, x58, X79 and they were not this troublesome to overclock.

I think there are probably better boards out there for moderately more money.
