ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small footprint, height 7 inches by 5 3/4 inches wide.
No dropped connections, so far.

Cons: None, so far.

Other Thoughts: I set this router up in about 10 minutes. I didn't bother with the stock firmware. I Immediately installed the latest version of the Padavan firmware ("RT-N56U_3.4.3.9-097_aria.trx"), which I had already downloaded. The flash went smooth and was error-free. The Padavan software looks great and the interface is blazing fast. Any changes to the settings are applied immediately. I'm used to a router taking 30 seconds or more to apply it's settings.

If I can get a couple of years out of this router, I'd be happy. I use it to stream videos to my devices within about 30 feet, over 5G. The videos don't break a sweat and playback is super smooth. shows my internet speed as about 30 Mbps (megabits per second), which translates into 3.75 Mbps (Megabytes per second).

Right now, the router is very stable.

Pros: It's been very dependable, despite changing motherboards a couple of times.

Cons: Price.

Other Thoughts: It's hard to believe that it was 4 years ago that I bought this RAM. It's been great. When the price goes back down to it's 2011 level, I'll buy more.

5 out of 5 eggs 10 years ot 150TBW, whichever comes first. 04/24/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE256BW

Pros: Fast.
Slightly faster than the 840 PRO Series.
10 year warranty.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Samsung 850 PRO 256GB

What exactly is the Samsung warranty on the 850 PRO series?
The Samsung warranty is as follows:

128GB / 256GB - 10 Years or 150TBW (Total Bytes Written)
512GB / 1TB - 10 Years or 300TBW (Total Bytes Written)

The Samsung Magician software states just how many total bytes
have been written to the drive. Once the 150TBW or 300TBW threshold
has been exceeded, the drive is out of warranty.

Unless, using programs that write heavily to the drive, many purchasers
will never even come close to the above thresholds within 10 years. Many
will knowingly upgrade long before then, so the long-term warranty is an

For those concerned about the warranty and want to hold on to the drives
for that long, the caveat has been revealed.
