Most Favorable Review

Works goos as a AP

ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Works well for me with Factory Firmware; unit is updated and set to Access Point mode.

Cons: Did have a issue before upgrading Firmware was a little buggy.

Overall Review: Has been working happily and it survived Christmas with over ten people using it including myself; I think my registered client list said 10-20 devices by the time the holiday was over.

Most Critical Review

Would have been good but...

ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Good Feature set and easy BIOS recovery. See other thoughts.

Cons: Was DOA on arrival and would not boot at all despite a Full battery of troubleshooting tests. Guess I got unlucky by getting bit by the snake this round

Overall Review: Newegg was Great! They ended up helping me get things taken care of with the dead board and I was able to switch products to get my PC up and running.

Router Build

GIGABYTE GA-C1037UN Intel Dual-core Celeron 1037U (1.8 GHz) Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo
GIGABYTE GA-C1037UN Intel Dual-core Celeron 1037U (1.8 GHz) Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo

Pros: It works like a beast for a router build for a small user population. The low cost and power use makes this MB a nice choice for a HTPC or Router; at least it did for me.

Cons: Needs some space for the CPU cooling fan.

Overall Review: Fits in the Case I put it in and has been running like a champ 24/7.

Router RAM

G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBNS
G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBNS

Cons: N/A

Router Case

Antec ISK Series ISK 300-150 Black 0.8mm Cold Rolled Steel Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 150W Power Supply
Antec ISK Series ISK 300-150 Black 0.8mm Cold Rolled Steel Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 150W Power Supply

Pros: Nice for the Router that was built for a friend who needed a strong yet compact box.

Cons: Non-Standard Power Supply. Thinking is required to run the cables to where you want them and for the case to close.

Nice & Problem Solved

VANTEC NexStar HX4R NST-640S3R-BK Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 3.0 & eSATA Quad Bay RAID HDD Enclosure

Pros: Solid and quick espicially on E-Sata. Make sure you have a compatable USB controller some older ones don't play nice.

Cons: None now.

Overall Review: Was my onboard USB and or Operating Systems not liking the Unit.
