NETGEAR AC1750 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router R6300-NAS
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs First Impressions 10/16/2012

This review is from: NETGEAR AC1750 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router R6300-NAS

Pros: The web management has a nice and simple interface that isn't cluttered. It has all the features that I currently need and provides me the ability for future 802.11ac implementation.

Cons: Corrupt firmware straight out of the box! Tech support couldn't provide assistance. They said they were referring me to a special group that supports this router or issue and that group would be calling me back. Well, they never called me back and so I had to support myself. I found a kb article that showed me how to tftp flash the latest firmware.

An IP reservation wouldn't take until after a router reboot.

Netgear Genie only provides access to very basic settings, no advanced features. It doesn't even provide settings for the 5G wireless settings.

Other Thoughts: I've only had enough time with the R6300 to perform some basic configuration, IP reservation, port forwarding, wireless config and Dynamic DNS. So far, everything seems to be working without issue. I look forward to more time with the router to put it through it's paces.

Pros: Great performance. Runs cool and quiet. Doesn't burn through electricity like the Quad Cores.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't think I'll need to perform another upgrade for quite awhile. For me, I think going Core i7 is cost prohibitive. The Core 2 Duo's provide excellent performance at an acceptable price point.

Creative 70SB073A00000 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer

Pros: Wow!!! Truly amazing, even if just using headphones. I didn't know what I was missing. I knew I was having difficulty pin pointing where shots were coming from in BF2142 but the difference was like night and day. Everything sounds so much clearer and I can now zero in on someone trying to take me out. This card blows away the on-board audio without a doubt.

Cons: The card only supports Intel HD audio front panels. Sorry, if your case has AC-97 pins, your out of luck. Minimal driver support for Vista. If you want the bundled software that works in XP for Vista, you'll have to purchase a separate disk from Creative.

Other Thoughts: I use this X-FI card with a Sennheiser PC166 headset. I couldn't believe the level of detail, richness, fullness, surround audio quality for gaming these two together provide. I highly recommend the headset too.
