ASUS RT-AC66R Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router –Asus Certified.
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Worked just fine when received 06/08/2014

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC66R Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router –Asus Certified.

Pros: Bought Refurb Newegg via E-bay. Was worried based on earlier reviews, but received unit was clean and unmarked, and I had no issues with it - functioned 100%. Was able to install and get DD-WRT working. Follow instructions EXACTLY to do so - if you fail to wipe NVRAM a second time you will think the router WAN is broken, when it is actually just fine/a DD-WRT bug.

Cons: Not really a fan of the stock firmware, but since I use DD-WRT, didn't care

Other Thoughts: Can't speak to the longevity angle, but at least initially the refurb is working fine.

Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 100% working out of the box. No bad sectors, no SMART errors. 100% clean after an HD Tune Write test of the entire drive. No weird vibrations. Basically at least initially this drive works and is not in any way DOA.

Cons: Newegg normally packages new OEM hard drives by wrapping in bubble wrap maybe 2 times around, taping, and then putting the wrapped HDD into a small box. That box then goes into a larger box with paper as padding. In the case of this refurb drive, there was only a small amount of bubble wrap (<1 time all the way around) and it was not taped together. Otherwise the same as new. Lucky it didn't get damaged in shipping.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Synapse Cache SYN-25SAT3-64G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The other guy got the correct size drive - there is 64gb of flash, but only 32gb show up because they have massively overprovisioned. Drive working fine out of the box, tested 100% good through a Hard Disk Sentinel Read + Write test across the entire drive.

Cons: Software working ok for me but not actually updated for windows 8, so you have to install it in compatibility mode for windows 7
