Linksys EA6500 V2 AC1750 Wi-Fi Wireless Dual-Band+ Router with Gigabit, Smart Wi-Fi App Enabled, Open Source supported
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks attractive, Size is acceptable, Internal Webpage for controlling the router looks all right, but see the negative/Cons. Works for the most part. Used Linksys Routers for over 15 years without issues; BUT now the world of Linksys is not the same people.

Cons: With all of the Routers out there, I recommend you skip buying this one and any Linksys product if you need to rely on support for what you pay for. Here is why.
This router requires browsers other than IE 11 to access its internal webpage for setup. If you use IE 11, you get a pretty screen that says this: Upgrade your router to IE or another. Here you are with the latest IE 11 and the router says use something else
Discussed this quietly with Linksys Support, but ordinary Techs say use Chrome or something other than IE11.
Website has no email address for support so I wrote to corporate HDQ. HDQ had worker bees contact me and got all of the information about the issue. I was promised a Firmware was in the works. Here it is four months later, no updated firmware. Need I say more?

Other Thoughts: Linksys must have an issue with Microsoft. It steers users to browsers other than IE11. So if you need firmware correction, you cannot depend on timely updates, in my case no update at all!

4 out of 5 eggs G.Skill Fast and Cool, but RMA sometimes necessary 01/29/2014

This review is from: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8Q-16GBZH

Pros: Looks well (doesn't really matter to many customers), good fit, fine compatibility, flexible and precision adjustment timings, good and standard packaging, and fine reputation of the company.

Cons: While it is fairly easy to interact with the company, the RMA system is questionable at this time. Must submit a certain form and await response, which could take a few days. No direct exchange, i.e. provide credit card number and have replacement shipped out immediately. So, when you send out your four sticks because one went bad; you're left without RAM unless you have some extra or buy more. One stick of four started faulting after 14 months of non-overclock, standard timings settings usage. First GSkill RAM Failure in over 8 years.

Other Thoughts: A big and successful company like GSkill could easily upgrade its RMA system by allowing customers to provide credit card number to guarantee payment if assessment of bad memory is wrong. I am in midst of RMA that looks to take a couple of weeks being GSkill is on the West Coast and I on the East. If things go faster, I'll gladly update this assessment. Would be nice if customer service was a bit more energetic and kind when interacting with customers....Dude (don't like that term personally).

Linksys EA6200 Dual Band AC900 Smart Wi-Fi Router
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Behind the Times EA6500 12/27/2013

This review is from: Linksys EA6200 Dual Band AC900 Smart Wi-Fi Router

Pros: Easy to set up.

Cons: If you are a Windows 8.1 person who settles for using IE 11, then expect not to use the router's internal Webpage. If you use Crome, or other browsers, you can access it. Good for you. The tech department at Linksys just ignores this issue and says the work around is to use a browser other than IE 11. No date for an update of the firmware to correct this. This is for the EA6500.

Other Thoughts: For a company that is earning millions from customers, that cannot apply or won't apply its software technicians to make a firmware upgrade so customers can use the latest IE 11, something is wrong.
