D-Link DIR-890L/R Wireless AC3200 Ultra Tri-Band Gigabit Router, AC Smartbeam technology

3 out of 5 eggs Ack! Figured out after the return period what didn't work 05/31/2015

This review is from: D-Link DIR-890L/R Wireless AC3200 Ultra Tri-Band Gigabit Router, AC Smartbeam technology

Pros: What it does, it does well. And it is cute.

Cons: There are 3 radios in this device. It took me a 35 days of fiddling to finally figure out the problem was that the primary 5 ghz radio does not work. When you let the router use the same SSIDS for good and bad radios, it makes some (for me) pretty tough problems to diagnose.

Oh well, I turned off that radio and will be happy with the parts that work.

Also, forget the "Smart Connect" feature. You probably didn't need it anyway.

NEC Display Solutions PA231W-BK Black 23

Pros: If you want a 1920 x 1080 screen with a large color palette and the ability to produce ACCURATE color rendition then you will be in love with this monitor.

Very sturdy base, plenty of inputs.

Cons: Takes some setup but if you want a good monitor that's what you have to do. Your image source, your monitors, your printer (drivers and ICC paper profiles) all should think the same colors are THE SAME colors.

Other Thoughts: When I walk through brick and mortar stores the monitor selection they have is terrible. I hate glare and I hate shiny bezels. This monitor has neither.

This is a professional monitor. I have always been willing to spend extra for a good monitor.

COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2

Pros: I bought this a few months ago but it took me time to get up the nerve to install it. Installation was very easy for me and it didn't require removing my mobo or a second pair of hands.

It took 15 degrees C off of my temps over stock cooler on an I7 950. That's very good. I've gone from nervous about heat to relaxed. Ahhhhhhh.

Cons: About 1 hour in to first usage the fan started chirping like a cricket. I'd RMA this thing but I've had it too long. I find that by turning up the fan speed I can make the squeaking stop but now it's louder than I want.

I'm going to replace this. Maybe with one just like it!

Other Thoughts: I don't care about LEDs. I wish they weren't there.
