This review is from: TP-LINK RE580D AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
Pros: The unit works well now. Good speed, extends my wireless network without issue. The setup configuration out of the box was a piece of cake.
Cons: I ran into something an earlier reviewer mentioned - day 1 worked fine. By day 2 the system had lost its connection to the core router and wireless devices could no longer connect to it. What ultimately fixed it was I got into my core router and gave the range extender a static IP address. Then went into the range extender's admin console to assign it that same static IP address. Rebooted both units and now the range extender works fine. It's worked fine for like 3-4 weeks straight since I assigned it the static IP Address. So for folks who are having the range extender drop connection on you, try giving it a static IP.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: * Easy installation
* Good manual
Cons: * The mainboard was slightly bent on arrival, which I didn't even realize until I went to mount it in the case and realized one corner of it was bent. Thankfully it worked fine anyway.
* Only recognized 8GB of the 16GB of RAM I had installed. Thankfully I had gotten it for free so it wasn't a big deal, but it should have recognized all 4 of the identical 4GB DIMMs and it did not.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'd recommend, just be aware you could have some memory issues and be ready to RMA as needed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SILVERSTONE NT09-115X 92mm CPU Cooler
Pros: Works like a champ.
Thermal interface material included on the heatsink itself which was nice.
Cons: Had to put a LOT of pressure on the screws to get them to mount into the bracket. I was a bit concerned that I was going to damage the CPU, but thankfully everything went fine in the end.
Other Thoughts: Performance is good and fairly easy installation.READ FULL REVIEW
