ASRock Z68M/USB3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: ASROCK took my first board back

Cons: This one had same issue - boot up and says to insert disk or select boot device. Go into BIOS change HD to primary boot device and starts fine. Leave it off for more than 8 hours and it won't boot again. Go into BIOS and the DVD is back as primary boot device and won't boot without disk. Two issues. One - even if DVD is empty the bios should try second device. Second - if I change the BIOS and save/exit then the BIOS should stay the same. Same issue as first board, but no reply from ASROCK when I email them this time.

Other Thoughts: At what point does ASROCK have to stop the RMA dance and replace with a different board or refund my purchase price?

I have to pay shipping for the RMA everytime.

TRENDnet TEW-633GR Wireless Router IEEE 802.3 (10Base-T) IEEE 802.3u (100Base-TX) IEEE 802.3ab (1000Base-T) IEEE 802.11b IEEE 802.11g IEEE 802.11n (draft 2.0)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: cheap

Cons: LAN to WAN stops randomly - can prove it by unplugging desktop from router and plugging into cable modem good connection. Also wireless stops - meaning no longer can see SSID broadcast even using netscanning equipment. This is the 2nd unit that this issue has come up with.

Other Thoughts: Trendnet does not offer advance replacement even if you have an ongoing issue and have to RMA mulitple times. They expect you to go without a router for several weeks while they process your RMA. Don't recommend purchasing any of their equipment due to customer service or lack there of.

ZyXEL X550N Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n 2

1 out of 5 eggs Already tried that firmware 04/24/2009

This review is from: ZyXEL X550N Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n 2

Pros: See previous review

Cons: Zyxel does not know what causes disconnect because they think that firmware version 360BFD2D0 has corrected it and it hasn't. I get disconnects only feet away from the router. I even get hangs on the LAN ports. This is not anywhere as good as their Zywall products.

Other Thoughts: In response to Zyxel - I tried that firmware download you reference and it did not fix the issue as I have reported on several occassions to Mark Hsu.
