The memory is very fast and very pretty
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.
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.
