ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, good range. Open source firmware ( thank goodness)

Overall happy with it

Cons: Worked great for a while. It prompted me to update the firmware so I did due to a security risk. Then I had problems with the router loosing connectivity to the internet. Others appeared to have the same issue

I installed the "Merlin" open source firmware and the problems with connectivity vanished. I'm sticking with the Merlin for now.

Merlin looks exactly like the ASUS firmware except with some fixes and added security and a few features.

Other Thoughts: Asus has released an update that supposedly corrects the disconnects but I haven't tried it yet because Merlin is stable. Over 30 days uptime. (Asus should hire him to work on their software the guy knows his stuff)

They should more thoroughly test their firmware before prompting people to update.

1 out of 5 eggs 2nd drive failure less than a year 05/05/2014

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB

Pros: cheap, 3 year warranty

Cons: I have 2 of these. 1 had failed immediately within days of installing it. NewEgg RMA'd it no problem. The second drive has now failed at 10 months of use (as a secondary drive I installed some games to). Not even heavy use.

Starting to worry about loosing my OS drive again. What a hassle. I may replace the first one given the track record.

Other Thoughts: 2 of 3 failed within a year. Not good

Their tech support was prompt and has given me an RMA to send the failed one back. Thankfully they have a 3 year warranty.
