Tenda AC15 AC1900 Dual-Band WiFi Router Review
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It used to be a pretty well understood fact that merging to the 802.11ac wireless standard was an expensive task, with just the thought about having to replace both your router and wireless card made anyone’s wallet shudder, but that was back in 2013. Come back, three years in the future, and we encounter devices like the one Benchmark Reviews has in it’s hands today. The Tenda AC15 AC1900 Router is not only AC capable, but it features a Broadcom’s BCM4708 Wi-Fi chipset capable of delivering speeds of up to 1300 Mbps over the 5 Ghz band. Astonishingly, it comes at only $87.99, which is the lowest price tag we have ever encountered on any AC1900 router.

Linksys WRT1900AC Dual-Band Wireless Router Review
     Tue, Oct 13 2015 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years there have been many products that have come to market that have had the ability to grab our attention for one reason or another. In some instances this has been due to the new technologies and levels of performance that they bring or in other instances it may have been a radical design that changes the way in which we look at type of product. The product that we’re looking at today though has me buzzing in a completely different way and one which I doubt will happen again any time soon. Linksys’ WRT1900AC is a router that, as anyone into their networking would know, is built on the legacy of the WRT54G, which came to market back in December 2003 and it’s range of substrates that followed, including the WRT54GS. Of all the features that made the original WRT so unique and legendary, the Open-source platform and performance for the time were the two biggest selling points. To show how successful this router was and believe it or not, still is, the WRT54G and GS have been used for so many applications aside residential network applications, with open-source firmware playing a major part in these unique applications.

Netgear Powerline 1200 PLP1200 Adapter Set Review
     Mon, Oct 05 2015 | 12:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WiFi is widely considered to be one of the most important technologies people currently use so it's no wonder that you find it pretty much everywhere you go from cafeterias, bars, clubs, fast food joints and restaurants up to airport terminals, shopping malls, hotels, parks and even in hospitals. Well there's no denying that WiFi has opened new horizons in the industry since thanks to that people can have access to the internet (amongst things including personal and public content) without the need of cables but wireless connectivity is far from perfect and due to signal strength limitations it's not really suitable for every possible scenario. Powerline adapters have come a long way since their introduction in the market several years ago and now offer much higher data transfer rates and much further compared to most WiFi enabled modem/routers. The latest Power line model by Netgear is the Powerline 1200 (PLP1200) and that's what we'll be looking at today.

Controlling your HVAC system is incredibly easy through either the ecobee3 Wi-Fi smart thermostat, apps, or web portal. The touch screen responds quickly to your input and menus are easy to navigate. The thermostat always displays the current temperature and outdoor temperature and weather icon. As you approach the thermostat the display will change, centered will be your current temperature with a humidity reading just above that.

AVM FRITZ!Powerline 546E WLAN Adapter Review
     Wed, Sep 30 2015 | 1:06P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Powerline network adapters may already count quite a few years in the market (i used my first set well over 5 years ago) but the main consumer base has just now begun to learn of their existence and as expected most network equipment manufacturers have recently focused their efforts in the release of models featuring 1GbE connectivity. We've reviewed such models already and although we're quite satisfied with their performance we do feel that they leave much to be desired especially in terms of features and available settings. Devolo is amongst the very few such manufacturers that have already tried to improve on that area by releasing powerline adapters with Wi-Fi capabilities but again i can't honestly say that we were overwhelmed with what they had to offer (at least the models we have reviewed and/or used so far). AVM aims to change all that however with the highly anticipated FRITZ!Powerline 546E model.

high-end ASUS RT-AC3200

Posted by: STAFF
We continue our router round-up with a third high-end model, the ASUS RT-AC3200. It is also a tri-band model, but it looks a bit more modest than the other contenders. Looks can be deceiving however, as performance of this model is, particularly on the 5GHz spectrum, truly impressive.

D-Link DIR-890L

Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the second installment in our series of high-end router reviews, the D-Link DIR-890L. This peculiarly designed router features twin 5 GHz transceivers in addition to ye olde 2.4 GHz one. As such it’s a tri-band router with a theoretical physical layer throughput of 3200 Mbps. How much of that translates to reality, that’s what we determined through our usual series of rigorous tests.

Overclockers RENDA PW-E7F Workstation Review
     Mon, Sep 21 2015 | 12:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclockers is a company that will be better known here at KitGuru for its choice selection of enthusiast components and lovingly enhanced gaming systems. But the ability to put together a quality system is potentially something of interest to the professional market as well as more entertainment-oriented users. With one of the world’s greatest ever overclockers designing all its systems, Overclockers has plenty of potential here. This brings us to the RENDA brand, which is Overclockers’ new workstation range. Our first taste is the PW-E7F.

The Killer 1535 Wi-Fi adapter was the first 2x2 MU-MIMO compatible adapter on the market when it launched earlier this year, and is only found in a few products right now. We had a chance to test it out with the recently reviewed MSI G72 Dominator Pro G-Sync laptop, using the new Linksys EA8500 MU-MIMO router. How did it perform, and just what is MU-MIMO?

There can be quite a few reasons that you’ll want to add a wireless network connection to your system and there are just as many ways that you can achieve that.

Netgear Nighthawk R8000
     Fri, Sep 11 2015 | 12:31P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Netgear R8000 Nighthawk X6 is, without a doubt, the fastest router that we have tested thus far. This isn't because of the introduction of all sorts of hip new technologies, such as Multi-User MIMO, but mainly because of the addition of an extra radio. This might perhaps not be the most elegant solution, but it sure pays off.”

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
