This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation Extreme AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router - WZR-1750DHP
Pros: This is my second Buffalo unit, and will certainly not be my last. Range is a lot longer than my previous 54G, transfer speeds are higher, and the options for network storage with USB 3.0 are awesome. I have yet to set up an NAS on it, but will probably do so soon, and if the routers performance thus far is any indication, I will not be disappointed.
Cons: Its big, not a con for me but for those of you with limited space, its about two times the size as my old 54G.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Edimax EW-7822UAC Wireless AC1200 Dual-band USB 3.0 Adapter, Complies to Draft 802.11ac Standard, Delivers More Than Two Times Faster Wi-Fi Speed Than 802.11n, With Adjustable Foldaway Antenna for Optimum High Performance
Pros: The current market for AC adapters is rather small. You've few options and even less information on those few. Allow me to give you a little insight on this one.
The transfer speed I get coupling with my AC1750 router's 5GHz band is noticeably faster than the 2.4, as it should be. I found Steam downloading games at 3Mbps instead of 1Mbps when using the 5GHz. Ping is relatively the same in games. Torrents seem to have a higher max speed as well.
Cons: The problem however is that either due to USB 3.0 drivers or the driver for this adapter itself, I find the 5GHz band drops connection more often, will load web pages forever 1/5 times, and sometimes fails to load images on webpages. This is using the latest version of Firefox and is not isolated to any particular site. Changing to the 2.4GHz signal fixes this. Other 5GHz devices on my network do not experience this issue, ruling out the router.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its a multipack of cheap fans with a decent airflow to noise ratio. They function well and get the job done. Better than standard rifle bearings.
Cons: Would've been nice if they sleeved the cables, but at this price you can't have everything.READ FULL REVIEW
