This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)
Pros: Fast as can be...when it's not dropping signal and rebooting itself. Powerful WOW! My Galaxy S4 picks this thing's signal up 6 houses away and works!
Cons: Where to begin...Drops wifi on a regular basis, especially if you make it work at all. Has done this on 2 f/w versions, so it isn't that. Bought it 2 weeks ago and it was doing it out of the box. Upgraded f/w immediately, still does it. Have tried numerous configurations and settings, no dice. The customer service honestly, if they want to even call it that, doesn't exist. I called, got some person in Pakistan with a non-understandable accent thicker than molasses, asked for a domestic transfer and he simply hung up. Called again, got a female with almost the same level of accent, but I could understand her a bit more, but when we hit a wall, again, I asked to be transferred, bang!!!! Hung up on again! This happened 4 times. Finally, after more than 10 calls, numerous transfers, I get someone who is understandable (still foreign outsourced) and she basically reads the FAQ response off their support site...What was that? Ya, try reflashing the firmware because it sometimes doesn't take and monitor. So ya, let's see, hung up on 4 times, no help, told to "monitor" it, and it still doesn't work properly. Most recent drop and self re-boot...15 minutes ago while trying to simply go from one of my youtube videos back to the video manager...Nothing hard there...As soon as it was pushing data BAM!!! orange lights, no more white, and a minute of wait time for it to recycle iteself. Bought it from the "geeks" because I had a rewardzone coupon, otherwise would have bought here at the Egg!!
Other Thoughts: this will be the LAST Netgear product I buy. I have 2 other pieces and both have intermittent issues, much the same of dropping out. One is a USB wifi adapter in my shop computer, and half the time I have to swap USB ports for it to work again once it drops, and the other is a wnd4300 router that also dropped, although not as frequently as this, but I wanted more powerful signal, so that is what prompted the new unit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very well priced DVD drive. Worked perfect with no hiccups.
Cons: Only reason for not giving it 5 stars was no screws included. Luckily, I have a container of pc hardware and cables, so I had that covered, but still would have been nice to include a coupleREAD FULL REVIEW
