This review is from: ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server (top performance review at smallnetbuilder.com)
Pros: Reliable unit that has been top performing since the day I bought it - had a few hiccups along the installation of the unit but that was called for cos of my bad ISP.
After the latest iteration of firmware courtesy of Asus the unit performs like a champ and the new GUI is reminiscent of the higher tier products aka AC units.
Cons: Updating the firmware is a lil pain in the backside - with all the hocus pocus and the button pushing - not convenient when you have the router a very long distance away from main rig and is mounted at an elevated position requiring a chair/collapsible ladder to reach.
QoS is erm...bad if I should say the least. Traffic management ain't what I was expecting though it was one of the main reasons I opted for an expensive unit like this-coupled with the long reliability raves about Asus from customers. Well this didn't hit the sweet spot...
Other Thoughts: Units price dropped not long after the release of the N-66U but even though it doesn't have open firmware support it works great.
No matter how much cons I've written - t ain't worth removing any egg - really good unit on arrival and has been good since.
Pros: 1| Ran off of X.M.P profile without a hitch within the rated 1.65v on my Asus Rampage Extreme+Q9550 rig.
2| Comes in a brilliantly satin red finish that went amazing on my build.
3| Can be manually tuned into specs and I've got it running at much tighter timings.
Cons: None that comes to mind nor seen from my experience.
Other Thoughts: Check out my build that I used this dim - Google: Lutfi's 2nd WC build log.
As always Newegg has a reputation that they try to maintain :)
Pros: Ridgeback heatsink that looks cool + is cool to the touch after getting it to overclock on 1.65V
have got it to 1800MHz, will be gunning for the 2000MHz range, though i hope my RE X48 can handle it.
Cons: XMP profile left my rig unable to recognize the settings, though thats my mobo's issue not really a con :)READ FULL REVIEW
