This review is from: NETGEAR R8000-100NAS Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wireless Router
Pros: Excellent range, excellent throughput, never drops wireless connections, very stable, LEDs can be turned off with a switch on the back. This router has better range on its 5ghz band than most routers have on their 2.4ghz band, which is really impressive. It's really cool looking too. If Batman owned a wireless router, it would probably look something like this.
Cons: The Netgear firmware is a bit simplistic, but just about any option you would need is there if you look closely.
Other Thoughts: This is way better than the flaky ASUS Dark Knight RT-N66U router it replaced that was constantly dropping wireless connections. It does its primary job of routing and holding connections extremely well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Compatible with Gigabyte Brix. Much faster than the N150 Azurewave card that came with the Brix. 802.11ac for cheap.
Other Thoughts: The card doesn't come with a driver disc, but the AC7260 wifi and bluetooth drivers from Intel's website work fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Haswell i3 is surprisingly fast, tiny (only about the size of a small book), Intel HD 4400 plays back 1080p HD content perfectly, takes 2.5 inch drives, comes with with wifi, makes almost no noise even under load.
Cons: A tad expensive once you add RAM and an SSD
Other Thoughts: Lots of power in a tiny package. Really everything you would ever need for an HTPC to run XBMC/Kodi.READ FULL REVIEW
