This review is from: NETGEAR R6300 Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router IEEE 802.11ac/a/b/g/n
Pros: Very attractive product, easy setup, very good tech support.
Cons: The newest firmware is flawed. The speeds were greatly reduced from my true speed. Called tech support and they had me install an older firmware version, now it is running great. Tech support called the newest firmware "flawed". Why the company would release and maintain a flawed firmware, is beyond me. This does concern me about the company overall.
Other Thoughts: The product itself deserves a five star rating, I reduced it due to my concerns over the quality of the firmware engineering, and the overall quality control.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: UEFI bios, S/PDIF Out, 3 Year Warranty, easy overclock utility, Purity sound, eSATA, 7.1 CH HD Audio with Content Protection, fast boot, dehumidifier, XFast RAM etc.
Cons: The only con for my configuration, was the positioning of the SATA slots In the chassis. It was very tight on two of the SATA connections.
Other Thoughts: if you are not used to the UEFI bios, walk slowly if you're going to overclock in the bios. It is much more complex than previous bios versions. F-stream an easy to use overclock tool. If you enjoy complexity, you will have fun in the bios. My computer was built using a Samsung 840 EVO SSD drive, a 1 TB HDD drive, and 32 GB of crucial ballistic DDR 3-1866 memory. The memory overclock easily to 2133. This computer is smooth, sleek and fast.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ac, Price, cloud.
Cons: Major problems///////////
Other Thoughts: After upgrading the firmware, the device continues to loose connection. After numerous calls to tech support, they replaced the router with a new one. The same problem continues, multiple calls to tech support, upgrade firmware, reconfigure, download and installed old firmware, reconfigure etc. Router keeps disconnecting. Second router is on the way, this is newer, hopefully it will work.READ FULL REVIEW
