Quick Summary 

 Ulasan Pendek 

The ASUS RT-N14UHP is one of a kind of router that is meant to replace your existing UniFi/Maxis Fibre Wireless Routers. I mean if you do a simple Google search , you’ll notice the amount of complain. The beauty of the router is that it’s huge antennas , a USB Port (which you can use it to run it as a torrent server or file server) and also the Quality of Service functionality (which allows you to play games without lag while downloading – you may read about it here) –

Also if you are interested to see how the router is in action. I have done a video review in Malay (yep it’s the first time – thanks to Aman Firdaus for giving the inspiration)

I am also doing a write-up review in English on the router and explain some of the functionality as well) – for those who prefer to read.

In this part , I’ll be taking a look at the features of the BenQ EW2440L monitor to do a check if they are really what they claim to be or it is just a hype or cool-to-have-functionality-but-it-is-not-practical
