    oh sweet! Tell me more about that router? Aren't the units available now like test units or they're actual retail units?

    How do you like it? how's the range? Does it disconnect your laptop or phones randomly like I've read on some Amazon reviews?

    The Intel 760p generates a lot less heat under load.

    It's good, much better than the screens in the MSI GT75 Titans but the colors are a bit too white so I calibrated it.

    See:

    LG-Phillips 173WFG (Alienware Area-51m) Spyder5Elite Calibration Profile

    But that profile is only for the LG screen. Some people are getting the AUO screen so it depends on which screen you get

    The range is amazing, But I also have a Nighthawk EX8000 extender as I have a large home and to reach the wifi for the pool equipment took a little extra push from my last Nighthawk X8. So honestly I did not test the new routers range without extender, but from what I read it covers around 5000sq ft.

    As far as speeds, My speed on the area51m increased almost double from the X8.

    I think the units have been out for a few a while, Best buy had it 100.00 off for 399.99.

    I have had no issues with dropouts, there was a new firmware it updated so perhaps this has been fixed?
