Most Favorable Review

The memory is very fast and very pretty

HyperX Predator RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model HX432C16PB3AK2/16
HyperX Predator RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model HX432C16PB3AK2/16

Pros: -Easy to set XMP to 3200MHz -RGB is extremely attractive -Always able to trust HyperX/Kingston memory -Noticeable performance increase

Cons: -HyperX doesn't have cons.

Overall Review: I got 2x8 sticks in December 2018 and when the prices dropped, I got 2x8 sticks again for a total of 32GB. The overall speed of my machine was noticeably faster. You can't go wrong with HyperX/Kingston memory. I've used it in hundreds of computer builds. The RGB on these sticks goes really well with my Razer Chroma products. Great addition to my set up.

Wonderful Product

D-Link DIR-885L AC3150 Ultra Wi-Fi Router

Pros: Extremely simple set up. Very user friendly interface. Beautiful piece of equipment. Seems very durable.

Cons: Not really an issue but this router is fairly large compared to your standard home router. It was larger than I imagined but caused no problems.

Overall Review: I bought a DIR-655 in 2007 and I never had issues with it, it was one of the best routers I had ever had experience with for a home router for gaming, streaming, and things like that when Wi-Fi became the standard. A modem I received my from internet provider did not communicate with my DIR-655 so I put it in my mom's house but she broke it, but I still remain loyal to D-Link's networking products. I have been using my wife's old Linksys router and now that we're getting a house, I vowed to ditch the Linksys because it was a very cheap router and couldn't keep up with what we do in our home technologically speaking. I returned to D-Link and I am not disappointed. I noticed in immediate difference in our phones data speeds, streaming from the PC to the XBOX One, even our little LG blu-ray smart player jumped on the network and loaded Netflix faster. I believe it's all due to the better wi-fi coverage, everything have it's own channel and also the router can communicate with multiple devices at once. Assuming nothing goes wrong, I will probably use this router for the next decade. Well worth it.
