NETGEAR R6250-100NAS Wireless AC1600 Dual Band Gigabit Router
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Updated Review 01/06/2015

This review is from: NETGEAR R6250-100NAS Wireless AC1600 Dual Band Gigabit Router

Pros: Fast LAN & Wireless (when it works). Shared USB port, multi bioses to choose from to get the best one you like. If you disable the router's QOS you will see a small gain in a speed test.

Cons: The hugest CON I have found is that the wireless on the unit will stop accepting connections. Not sure how long this takes to mess up or what causes it. I usually must reboot the unit about every 3-4th week per month. Most devices keep their connection, but new or resumed connections don't.

Other Thoughts: I am now getting the Asus ac1900 router to do a small upgrade and see if that holds wireless and allows new connections without reboot.

MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 6 internal SATA3 ports. Internal USB3 header. Killer NIC (It IS faster!). Crossfire at 8x for both cards. Internal serial port header (if you need it). Over sized heat sinks that help maintain coolness and great look. Not using it, but onboard sound is suppose to be really good.

Cons: Nothing at all

Other Thoughts: If you would like a noticeably faster wired network connection, and enjoy a great sound card, then this bad boy is for you! I upgraded from an MSI 970a-g46 and debated whether it would be worth it for a month, bit the bullet after the price dropped by $10. Only NIC and VIA USB needed installed. Had to fetch both updated drivers from MSI web site. WIN 8.1 Pro was happy after that. Notably faster web pages loading, online games seem to be running a bit smoother and loading faster. The NIC was the biggest improvement with this board thus far. File transfers across network and to USB3 memory sticks fly a bit faster also.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2GB ram, PCI-E 3.0, ULTRA NICE COOLER, 2 year warranty (not just 1 year). Performance is great on this and the temp doesn't rise even 20 degrees higher than idle! BIG PROPS for the cooler on this card!

Cons: Not a one!

Other Thoughts: For the causal gamer to the WOW player this card handles it all very well and remains cool doing it!
