ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks nice. Lots of chatter about it in forums.

Cons: Lots of chatter in forums, as in people looking for help.

Other Thoughts: This was trouble from the start. Figured it was just the unit I received until I did a little searching online, found many people with exactly the same issues. The GUI was horrendous, buggy and down-right unfriendly. The VPN configuration was complicated and didn't seem to work (though there was so many other issues just trying to configure the router I'm not sure all the settings were ever completely applied).

This unit was to be configured on a static IP for a business that needed multi-user VPN support, replacing the "cheap" Netis router (that replaced a Linksys that died) that did everything needed except multiple consecutive VPN connections. I love going to a job and having new equipment be problematic to the point of unusable.

Lots of love/hate relationships with the router from other peoples reviews. I'll be on the "hate" side.

Swissgear MARS 16
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice color, good design.

Cons: Doesn't feel as durable as the $40 backpack my son has.

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice $20 backpack, my daughter really likes it (9 years old, not being used for a laptop). Fits all her school stuff quite well. The over-all feel is on par with other $20 backpacks.

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs The more I use it... 05/16/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)

Pros: ... the more I hate it.

Pros: Can be wiped out for replacement (though not easily).

Cons: Usage is unfriendly and time consuming, looks are below average, charms and metro are the biggest joke.

Other Thoughts: Being a computer technician for a living I have to support and repair Windows computers, including Windows 8. When faced with repairing a Windows 8 machine that BSOD's after booting, not allowing time to configure it for Safe Mode (which was easy to access in previous versions), the machine is next to useless. Booting from a Windows 8 DVD is also next to useless as it tells you to boot from the hard drive to repair or restore.

From a support persons point of view I recommend staying away from Windows 8.
