Pros: Sturdy construction. Fed-Ex was fast, faster than this rig with an Ethernet connection. Easy to set up and get running.
Cons: Slower than slow. With Ethernet, internet connection tops out at about 15Mbps When computer is connected to main router, it tops out at 180Mbps.
Poor bang for the buck, should have spent the money on a better wifi-router.
Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money on this one, if something is too good to be true, it probably is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Duel Band / Runs cool once updated with Padavan Firmware
***VPN CLIENT WITH PADAVAN Firmware upgrade***
Good quality hardware especially for the price.
All this for for 20 bux after rebate!?!?!
Cons: Just as other eggers stated, the Asus firmware is pretty lousy and makes the router run hot with un-predictable speeds for the wireless.
Again, just as other have stated, the 5GHZ band is weak at best but 2.4GHz has enough power and range for everything else needed and will stream HD to your TV if it's not too far away say 20-25 feet max. Lower demand devices should be ok but to be fair, the antennas are small and internal so maybe I'm expecting way to much for my $20 purchase.
The stand itself is sturdy enough but it comes out of the slots way to easy. It could have been better thought out.
I give this 4 eggs only because the stock firmware NEEDS to be replaced with Padavan otherwise it would have been a 5 even with that cheesy stand.
Other Thoughts: If you catch this router on sale, BUY IT but make sure you dump the original firmware in favor of Padavan. Just google it, download it, and flash! You're done!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung 32GB BAR (Metal) USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 130MB/s (MUF-32BA/AM)
Pros: Price: Bought on sale for $10.99 The metal case construction is quite ergonomic, solid and wont fall apart like the CHEAP plastic variety do after just a few uses. Thumb drive uses NAND Flash Technology. Read speeds are roughly 120MB/s which is close enough to the claimed 130MB/s
Cons: Write speeds are a little disappointing which is probably why only the read speed is presented in the spec sheet. 20MB/s writes are not acceptable for a name brand like Samsung. I only got these drives a few days ago but being that they are Samsung, they should prove to be reliable unlike the garbage PNY thumb drives that stop working after a few days. Slow write speeds cost this review an egg but maybe for the price I got these for I shouldn't complain.
Other Thoughts: I've been using various Samsung memory devices for years now and so far all have proven to be very durable and reliable, if this does not change, then I can't think of a reason to go with another brand.READ FULL REVIEW
