Pros: Paired this with Buffalo's 802.11ac router to connect my home server to my HTPC. My HTPC is on the first floor of my house and the server is one floor above it. I am currently receiving a 97% signal with 877 Mbps.
Cons: I wasn't able to pair the two using the AOSS buttons. I manually connected the bridge to the router using the web interface. The default IP address for the bridge is 126.96.36.199. The router's interface wouldn't work it firefox, so I was using IE. I didn't test the bridge's interface with Firefox so I don't know if it has the same problem or not (may be a con).
Other Thoughts: I'm happy with the connection between the two devices. The product may be improved with future firmware updates, but I'm not too concerned with the bridge. Most of the updates I'd like to see involve the router. I'd still prefer a CAT6 connection between my server and HTPC, this is currently the best option available.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation AC1300 / N900 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router - WZR-D1800H
Pros: I bought this 802.11ac router along with Buffalo's 802.11ac bridge to connect my home server with my living room HTPC. Using this combination, I am currently getting a 97% signal connection (server is upstairs, living room 1 floor below) with 877 Mbps speed.
Cons: Currently dd-wrt isn't available for this router, maybe this will be resolved in the future. The interface for managing the router needs some work and I wasn't able to view it using firefox (worked in IE). Most the features I was looking for are available, but the interface needs to be redesigned in my opinion. These items may also be resolved with future firmware updates.
I wasn't able to pair the router and bridge using the AOSS button on both devices. I only tried it once as I didn't want to run up and down the stairs in my house, so I simply joined them using the manual method. While I found this to be rather easy, I don't expect typical consumers will. FYI - to connect to the bridge the default IP address is 188.8.131.52. From there you can change the IP address and connect the bridge to the router.
Other Thoughts: The router currently offers QoS, but only on the WAN port. It would be nice to have the option to use QoS on the LAN as well. I didn't see an option to create a guest SSID for friends and family like my previous router had. Maybe this can be added in a future update or if DD-WRT become available for this device. As I stated earlier, the interface needs some work, so maybe I simply missed where that feature is available. Overall, I'm happy with this product considering it's a draft release. If my cons are resolved in future updates, I would consider this a 5 egg product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Washed and waxed my car during Vetern's Day using all 3 steps. The application was similar to most car wax products. The results looked good, but not any different from other wax products I've used. The true test will be how long the wax lasts. If it holds up, then it will be worth the effort.
Cons: The 3 steps basically means you have to was your car 3 times. The process took me a full day to complete. If the wax holds up, then it was worth it, otherwise I'll go back to a single wax product.
Other Thoughts: I thought the smell of the step 3 wax was pleasing.READ FULL REVIEW
