Overall Review: I've had a number of routers over the years. While getting the NAT sorted out for gaming has never been particularly fun most routers the last few years have been pretty simple. For most just enable QoS and it works. On this one, it works for a day, then back to strict NAT. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.And that's beyond the headache of the first few weeks of owning it where speeds on my gigabit connection were limited to an absolute crawl (before it finally started working after about the 100th factory reset).Just a headache, through and through. Currently compelled to leave this review because I couldn't join a Rocket League tournament with my friends on Xbox because once again, my NAT is strict today. 3 years of owning a prior ASUS router and I don't think my NAT was ever strict once after clicking a simple enable QoS toggle. This one is a daily headache.
Pros: You can file your taxes through it.
Cons: Does not import from online verison
State file costs extra even though the name implies that it's included
Overall Review: I've used the HRBlock online version through their website for years. I thought this would basically be an extension of that. It's not. It's clunky standalone software that can't sync with any of the data you're previously entered/given to HRBlock, it costs extra to use, etc.
Even offering this for sale, especially with the misleading title, has soured me from purchasing at Newegg.
