This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-828DRU AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router
Pros: Where to start?!
This baby will automatically distribute all of your 5GHz devices evenly between it's two bands with excellent range and speeds *appearing as only as a single SSID Network if you choose.* (AWESOME!!!)
The U.I. is snappy and easy to navigate, (Big +!) and it requires minimal tinkering to get to where you need to be in terms of performance, this thing feels solid. Kinda like an Apple-esque product. The thing just simply works. And it works well!
The many antennas ensure good range and throughput even through thick or reinforced walls.
It also has both USB 3.0 and 2.0 on-board. Sweet!
Cons: 1GHz dual core isn't the fastest CPU available in today's routers... (Do we really need more?)
Antennas are VERY tall.
Not the most aesthetically pleasing router to look at *If you care/can see it easily.*
Expensive... It shouldn't cost nearly $200 for this level of tech in today's age. I mean sure, I've spent more on less. I've also rocked the same Linksys for close to 3 years now. (WRT1900AC) Which, at the time was $299.99 when purchased. But let's be honest here. When things are being redone/refreshed every 6-8 months now... You should be able to get this type of tech for at least a 3rd less than what the asking price is. $129.99-149.99 would be ideal I think
Other Thoughts: TRENDnet is a name synonyms with networking, they've literally been doing it for what feels like forever. Sadly though, I've never owned any of their gear as brands like D-Link, Netgear and Linksys have just always fit the bill easier/better and been more accessible to me. (Brick and Mortar stores.)
That being said I'm really grateful to have had the opportunity to test and review this little piece of kit. It was/is a real joy to mess with.
This review is from: NVIDIA Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GTX Game Bundle
Pros: Can't wait to play it! It was free! :-D
Cons: I can't play it now... :-( *Games not out as of my writing this.*
Other Thoughts: The Witcher franchise is awesome and THIS. WILL. NOT. DISAPPOINT!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cards are fast, quiet, and low on power. NICE!
Cons: See below...
Other Thoughts: 2nd car I bought came with Hynix ram that wasn't as OC-able as the first with samsung ram, being that they are very quiet I wasn't worried about SLi but it got worse when the 2nd card had the most awful coil whine and it sounded like the fan was soon to give. This was made worse when the car would crash and no longer function. RMA'd to gigabyte and got it repaired after 3 week wait. Worse was that they wouldn't honor my request of simply exchanging the card for one with samsung ram...READ FULL REVIEW
