ASUS RT-AC68R 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 week to 1 month

Pros: Dual Band.
Guest Networks.
Integrated Trend Mirco Security.
Lots of Configuration Options.

Cons: Freezes and becomes unresponsive.

Other Thoughts: I own two of these routers. The first one was purchased a year ago, and it has been the best router I've personally owned. I bought a second one for my parents, but it seems to freeze and crash every 2-3 days. I am forced to hard reboot the router each time. Newegg is replacing it, so hopefully it was just a fluke.

I specifically bought this router because of the Trend Mirco AiProtect feature. My parents are not tech/internet savvy. The AiProtect feature will block suspicious websites, and shutdown suspicious outbound and inbound connections. Additionally, whenever a security event occurs, the router can be configured to email an alert containing details of the event. I have been able to identify several bad apps on my parent's iPad and laptops that are behaving strangely.

MSI Radeon RX 480 DirectX 12 RX 480 GAMING X 8G 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Good Cooling
-Solid build quality
-8gb Ram
-Good price to performance ratio

Cons: Randomly crashes

Other Thoughts: I have owned this card for 2 weeks and it has randomly crashed on 4 occasions. Display will randomly pixelate into different colors and eventually lock up the computer. I am forced to hard reboot each time. Never experienced this issue prior to installing this card. I upgraded from my old Asus Nvidia card to this RX 480. Not a good first impression from MSI or AMD. Of course since I've already submitted the UPC for the rebate, I can no longer return this defective unit.

ASUS Radeon R7 240 DirectX 11.2 R7240-2GD3-L 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Low profile
Pairs with AMD APU for dual graphics
Memory overclock-able. 900mhz to 1066mhz (your results may vary)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: First off, this is NOT a gaming video card.

But, when paired with an AMD APU in dual graphics mode, the results are impressive. I put this in my living room computer for HD video and light gaming. I paired it with an AMD A10-7700K processor in dual graphics mode and it gets 70+ fps in games like Sleeping Dogs and the Batman series. Great for casual gaming, especially considering you can get both the A10-7700k and the r7 240 for about $150 on sale.

In dual graphics mode, this is a decent little card. Just remember that a mid-range video card like an r7 360 (for about $110) will run circles around this card, even in dual graphics mode.
