Why ASUS Routers?

Why ASUS Routers? For starters let me tell you a little story.

I gotten high speed internet and I kept running into this issue where my internet would constantly keep dropping and for what I was paying for I just could not understand why my download speed was horrible and I kept having issues.

Since I have a technical background I had diagnosed and determined that it had to be the router, the garbage fin router, you know the ones that that cable company gives you that is modem and router all in one.

So I did a little research and found a modem that would work with my ISP and a router. (The modem was also ASUS) and then one day I saw a Lighting Deal on Amazon for both the modem and the router for basically half off so I had to get it.

I got it delivered with 2 day shipping and hooked them up and got my modem activated with my ISP. Then I to my amazement I not only was no longer dropping my internet but I was seeing speeds that I had never seen, even faster than what I thought I was paying for and all of my internet problems I was having went away.

Fast forward to today, I am still using an ASUS router though a much better one than I did then only because I upgraded due to the additional demand on the network with all the smart devices.

What are the benefits of ASUS Routers?

Well there are several benefits outside of the ones I already mentioned but I will break them down here.

  • More reliable than the one the ISP provides
  • Has a built in firewall
  • Is a closed off network from the rest of the world
  • Faster network sharing of data and devices.
  • Easy to setup and manage
  • AiMesh – only on higher end models but boy is it cool.

Conclusion

Having said all of this if you are still using your ISP provided Modem/Router I definitely recommend you upgrade and I can personally tell you that the ASUS routers are the way to go. They make a great product and other then a device just getting slow from being 2ish years old (gonna happen to most devices) I have had an amazing experience using them.

Have you used the ASUS series of routers? Which ones do you recommend?

ASUS ROG Review

So, why ASUS ROG Review about ASUS ROG Laptops? Why did I add it to my personal website?

Well simply put I like the ASUS ROG series and even personally own one for my personal computer. In fact the laptop that I am writing this on is an ASUS ROG.

Why did I Buy an ASUS ROG?

I bought an ASUS ROG for my personal laptop for multiple reasons. No it wasn’t for gaming and yes I know that it is a gaming machine. I chose it for the following reason:

  • Upgradability – the ability and options to upgrade is essential for me.
  • Initial Specs – It has some great specifications out of the box.
  • Multiply Monitors Option – I have been able to hook up additional monitors.

Now the model I got didn’t have the best graphics because I didn’t need it because I wasn’t doing any major gaming or any Graphic Design, however their higher end models do have some of the best graphic cards that you can find on the market.

For me these were the key features I focused on because as a developer I needed a lot of a system to run Virtual Machines (VM)s and to run other things that I may need to run.

Now the bonus I have come across as the years have passed is these additional features has kept my computer running strong and still faster than my work computer. And for some reason has Windows Upgrades and Updates all Windows computers seem to get slower and slower, you know what I’m talking about.

Now granted I have upgraded my laptop to almost it’s max capacity in terms of ports.

Cons:

I wish the support was just a little better but for the times I have had to contact support they were very helpful and seemed like they really wanted to help.

The big issue I dealt with was when Windows 10 updated it made my SD Card reader not work for a bit and I had to figure out some by finding a newer driver to make it work again.

Having said that I haven’t had any other issues and the laptop has been very reliable.

Will I buy another ASUS ROG?

I can guarantee when it comes time that I need to upgrade or just need to replace my current laptop that I have had for going on 5 years now I will be buying another newer model without thinking twice.

Conclusion:

I personally have found the ASUS ROG Series to be some of the best and most reliable computers I have ever used.
