After waiting three days for one day shipping, my new LG WH16NS40 Blu-ray drive arrived... in a small yellow envelope with very little padding. I was really worried about it when I saw the packaging. A bubble wrap lined paper envelope didn't seem like it would be adequate for a trip from Texas to Arizona.
No dents or scuffs on the drive, that's a good sign...
Stuck it in my computer, and it works! Unfortunately it has firmware version 1.03, so no UHD Blu-rays for me. Might try rolling back the firmware, but I probably won't worry about it. The good news is that it seems to have survived shipping and it works.
I hate people that ship heavy things in padded envelopes, they must be utter morons. I had an external SCSI drive (some odd standard optical drive, not CD or DVD) shipped to me in a padded envelope back in the days. Ebay purchase, was only £10 or something, but it never worked...

pay premium doesn't look premium clearly isn't premium ... ah! why people still bother with Noctua and their brown-beige theme when there is a lot of other brand that do just as good if not better for cheaper ... (still liking the buy ... they are good ... they just aren't the best anymore and their price don't reflect it )

Good choice, had mine for a few years by now and it's been rock solid. Best router I've ever owned and I used to work for a router manufacturer (who is no more).

I wanted a stable router with great Wi-Fi range, after a good read about it I decided to go for it.
Other option was RT-AC86U, however that was +15% on top of Netgear price.

I reconed, I can "get by" with R7800 ;)

Did you used stock firmware or the one updated by Voxel ?

So far I've stuck with the stock firmware. They've been ok with pushing out updates, but no real feature improvements. UI looks a bit dated, but that's par for course with most routers. I guess spending a month or two doing a nice looking UI is too hard work for the router companies...
On the plus side, never had to reboot it because it stopped working (unlike the TP-Link range extenders I have, long story) and I've not had any issues apart from a weird easy on an earlier firmware where the router would block certain sites for no reason. The VPN server works quite well, but it's not that fast, nor does it support multiple users, which is a shame.

I bought these Skull Candy headphones in Gatwick Airport last month for the long 13 hour flight back to Buenos Aires and they proved to be an excellent buy. So much more comfortable than those tiny earphones they give you, not to mention the sound quality.
In fact, I sometimes use these on Bluetooth to watch TV late at night when my other half has gone to bed, so as not to disturb her. I was never really a headphone person before, but now that I also have some decent wired phones for the PC, she doesn't hear a thing now.
Also, with the plane half empty, I could recline on all three seats - a luxury. (Norwegian Airlines, Dreamliner 787)

"Test" is the new one, same spot (longest distance possible where I live).
Both networks are mine, this is simple 1:1 comparison ;)
I really enjoy this "ac" wireless standard :D
FInally I'm able to max. out my internet speed on Wi-Fi.

That's a really weak signal though, I'm surprised you can even connect to the internet with that low signal. Normally you need around -75-77dBm to get a solid connection.
802.11ac is better than the previous standards, but 802.11ax should bring some interesting improvements on the 2.4GHz bands, but only if the client devices are also 802.11ax, which is likely to take quite some time...

@TheLostSwede Yeah, old stuff was disconnecting and speed was barely good enough for anything.
However, that screenshot was made with both of them occupying the same channels.

Here's result from now (after old router was turned off, and few things were tweaked - same spot) :


dBm values :

I even took a crack at 160MHz channels on 5GHz, but my S10 couldn't find the network at that point :/
"DOM" is the standard 2,4GHz "n", from R7800.
Signal has to go through few furniture pieces, a foot thick wall (at bad angle) + another 5" wall with wooden doors, and then travel 7-8 feet further into room itself to get where I measure.
At least all walls are made from red bricks, so no metal inside to make it even harder for Wi-Fi signal :D

Yeah, that's much better, that should give you a solid connection all the time at least. The 160MHz option is mostly useless, unless you are going to bridge two R7800's or something like that. I had similar issues to you when enabling it, as some devices connected, but others didn't. I live in a three story house, with the router in the middle floor, but it's still not quite strong enough to cover the whole house, despite there only being 2-3 rooms on each floor. It's all concrete and metal though, which really doesn't help... If I stand right above or below the router, it works, but not in the adjoining rooms, not even on 2.4GHz :(

I was hoping that I would not need to use a plastic mat for rolling since I have commercial low nap carpet. Still need the mat as its still not easy to roll. Not really an unexpected outcome, so I wil move a mat in the room and it will probably work great.

I was thinking that to test my theory of really needing a hard surface for the wheels to roll on by going outside on the sidewalk, sitting in my chair, then racing the cars that go by. Be right back.
