Linksys AC3200 WRT3200ACM Open Source Ready Smart Wi-Fi Gigabit Router Supported by DD-WRT, eSATA / USB 3.0
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: I was impressed with how easy this router was to set up, the instructions were clear, and the wizard asked relevant questions in the right order. The wizard can be skipped for a manual configuration.

Once on the admin web page, it was easy to navigate around and change settings. There is a option to perform auto firmware updates at night. The option to create a Linksys Smart WI-FI account allows remote configuration control, which I find is rather useful. Each admin page has a help link, which explains what each page is for, however some data values choices are not explained very well.

Linksys mentions the Tri-Stream technology doubles the bandwidth on all spatial streams, making this a very fast dual-band router. The unit itself has a 1.8 Ghz CPU and 512MB RAM.

The four antennas allow for a nice coverage bubble for your local setup, I noticed a string signal in my furthest location.

The router included the typical WAN port and four LAN ports, and an additional a USB 3.0 port and eSATA port for an external hard drive NAS for server backups. This is worth setting up so your backups are easier to perform.

Cons: Other than the price being high for some, I have not found any issues with this router yet. I have connected eight different device types and all of them were up and working with ease.

Other Thoughts: The open Linux capability is a great feature, and also specific to your own needs. I will experiment with this and update the review.

HP 24o Black 24
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: This review is for the "HP 24o Black 24" 2ms TN Panel Widescreen LCD/LED Monitor, 250cd/m2 DCR 10,000,000:1(1000:1), Anti-Glare, Easy Connectivity, HDMI DVI VGA".

The wide screen has a nice viewing angle, the image quality was good, I was not able to see motion blur. The contrast ration had images which were better than two other monitors I compared it to. The viewing angle of 170° horizontal and 160° vertical was clear.

The monitor stand is able to tilt, but is not able to raise or lower. The OSD controls are the standard controls as other monitors. The power consumption has an A+ efficiency class. The surrounding bezel was smaller than other monitors, light weight, and was secure inside the stand which was not flimsy.

Cons: This monitor I received, did not come with an electrical cord, I had to pull one from another monitor. It also came with a short VGA D-Sub cable, which was useless for me, and does not include a a DisplayPort.

Other Thoughts: Be aware that this monitor displays 16.7 million colors while using an TN panel with FRC. Usually a TN has 6 bits per RGB color, for a total of 18 bits, which is unable to reach 16.7 million color shades. The monitor uses FRC (Frame Rate Control) dithering cycles to simulate the intermediate shades. This could cause flickering with darker tones, which I was not able to notice.

Has VESA mounting for locatin
