ASUS RT-AC68W Dual-Band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Burnt out after 3 months 04/15/2015

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68W Dual-Band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router

Pros: Was able to handle streaming and multiple devices with almost zero lag

Cons: Burnt out after 3 months; purchased in January and now I have to go through ASUS to try to figure out why it no longer powers up.

Other Thoughts: Tried to do a reset do to a serious amount of lag one day; after I powered it down, it would no longer turn back on. I've tried EVERYTHING. This is way too expensive to only have lasted 3 months. Very disappointed. ASUS has been my go-to company for many years now. Seems like their QA is starting to slip.

Seagate 600 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I really wanted to upgrade to a SSD; needless to say I was going crazy trying to get this to work properly. Then I decided to read the other recent reviews and realized it was time to tell Newegg to send me a new one. S.M.A.R.T. failure right off the bat, and nothing but issues trying to get BIOS to recognize the drive. Unlike a regular HDD that will give you a good 'ol click if it's bad, this is very difficult to tell. Especially when you buy it "brand new" you expect it to just work. Although I dislike Newegg for doing these "bad batch releases", I still won't go anywhere else because they resolve any problems so well. Will review the replacement drive, and hopefully this one works without issue!

Seagate Desktop HDD ST500DM002 500GB 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Potential for a DOA

Other Thoughts: This is the 2nd drive after I returned the first to Newegg; I'm thankful that their customer service is the best (one of the main reasons I buy ALL my computer hardware from them). So far, no problems, and I'm fairly impressed with the new 7200rpm drives. I have an old 10,000 rpm that's not as fast as this drive, but it is REALLY old. I like Seagate, even though it is hit or miss if you get a working drive.
