This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk X8 - AC5300 Tri-Band Quad-Stream Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (R8500)
Pros: Good speed 1000+2166+2166 Mb/s. Three band router.
Cons: not as powerful as ASUS R87U. I have both routers working and I am looking at signal strength on my laptop. I have four bars on ASUS and three bars on NETGEAR. Both routers are downstairs one next to the other. I was looking to buy something powerful because my office is located on the second floor on the far side of the house, while the router is on the first floor in the living room. For this reason my laptop and my tablet are a little slow. I thought that this router will do the trick, but my ASUS is better. Big footprint and runs on 19volt. Four thick antennas with blue LED on top. Has switches to turn the LEDs off.
Overall NOT WORTH THE HUGE PRICE TAG AT ALL.
Other Thoughts: I did not have time to play with it more, but I am not interested in this, because my ASUS router does a better job. Overall the two routers are close in performance, but the only thing I can see this router good for, is the three bands. It is good if you have a lot of things hooked up on the network. I will return it tomorrow.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, runs cool, very quiet. Very solid built. It has high resolution 3800x2400, runs four monitors at the same time at max settings. The best in the market. Life time warranty.
Cons: Price, but you get what you pay for. Not good to SLI with existing cooler.
Other Thoughts: PNY is by far the best company for all computer parts. Solid and durable construction. I had nothing but good luck with everything PNY. This company sets the standard and example of how the computer components should be build. If you want troubles free parts LOOK ONLY PNY. SO BUY TIS CARD AND YOU WILL THANK ME FOR ADVISE. GOOD LUCK!!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Single or Six rails. 100% Modular cables. Big power (1350 Watt). Solid construction. Lots of cables. Good looking case. Fine tuning voltage.
Cons: NOISY, VERY NOISY. I have two of ZM 1200, that have the same 80mm fan. They are very quite. But this one is waking up the whole house, when turns on. I put in balance to keep it or return it. In one hand I like its features, but in the other I dislike having that strong noise. So I decided to keep it to give it a try. I used Silverstone for years and I had good luck with them. Over the years I only had one to fail on me. How good will IT be? I do not know yet. I will keep you posted. And this is for Silverstone as company: CAN YOU START TO CARE ABOUT YOUR CUSTOMERS AGAIN? WAT IS WITH YOU AND THE REBATES ? I COMPLETED THE REBATE FORM ON LINE AND NOT EVEN TODAY I RECEIVED THE PROMISSED E-MAIL BACK, WITH THE FORM REQUIRED TO SEND IN THE PROOF OF PURCHASE, RECEIPT ETC. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU GUYS DO NOT LIKE TO KEEP YOUR PROMISES. SO I WOULD EXPECT AN ANSWER TO THIS...UNTIL YHAN YOU ONLY GET ONE STAR.
Other Thoughts: I WAS DEBATING ABOUT RATING FOR THIS PRODUCT.
AS WE ALL KNOW, THE RATING IS FOR PRODUCT ITSELF BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE IN COSIDERATION ALL THE ASPECTS INVOLVED. IT LOOKS THAT IS A GOOD QUALITY PRODUCT BUT AS WE ALL KNOW SOMETIMES LOOKS ARE DECEPTIVE. REALY RATING IS WHEN USED FOR AT LEAST SOME TIME, SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TELL HOW IT PERFORMS.
WHEN I WRITE A REVIEW I GO BY MY OWN EXPERIENCE WITH THAT PRDUCT AND I DO NOT DEDUCT "EGS" BECAUSE FACTORY OR NEWEGG SERVICE. THAT IS A SEPARATE ISUE AND COULD BE SEEN IN THE REVIEW. I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE IT FIVE STARS, BUT BECAUSE OF THE NOISY FAN IT ONLY GETS FOUR. FOR NOW IT STAYS IN THE CLOSET WAITING FOR SOME DAY WHEN MAY BE WILL BE USED. SO WAT 'S THE SENS OF KEEPING IT? I DO NOT KNOW YET. WHEN A PRODUCT IS NOT USABLE AND NEEDS TO BE RETURNED THAT MEANS IS GOT A PROBLEM AND SHOULD BE RATED AS SUCH. BUT I GOT IT FOR GOOD PRICE SO I AM KEEPING IT HOPING THAT ONE DAY IT WILL COME HANDY. UNTIL I GET AN ANSWER FROM SILVERSTONE RATING WILL STAY AS IS. SORRY SILVERSTONE BUT THIS WAY I THINK I WILL GET YOUR ATTENTION.
