This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready
Cons: Died after 3 months continuous operation @900W.
Rosewill RMA is costing $20 to return it back.
Pros: Love dd-wrt on this router. First day after unpacking the router, I voided the warranty by installing dd-wrt v.24 micro. Lot of routers (other brands) reboot automatically, but I have not encountered that problem with this router. Only reason I installed dd-wrt is to use dns-o-matic (free) to update my ip address, so I can connect to my computer remotely.
Cons: After changing any major settings router blocks access to configuration page (sometimes, not always). Need to unplug and replug the power cable. Don't worry, it won't reset the router. Again, all with dd-wrt. It's not a big deal since it's not linksys's fault and you hardly need to change settings on routers (not a everyday job).
Other Thoughts: Don't install dd-wrt standard. Only micro works best. You won't miss anything, trust me. In case you mess up the router with dd-wrt, there is always hope until you smell any burning chip. Google search how to de-brick wrt54g. Looking forward to get a gigabit dd-wrt router in future when price becomes <$50READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P5QL-E LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Newegg RMA. I am a newegg fan for over 4 years. Service is greatly improved over the last couple years. Hardware raid. Took to long time to figure out that you need to press ctrl + i during boot to get into raid config. Board looks very nice.
Cons: Faulty bios. First tried to install Linux, couldn't do it. Tried with all kind of combination. Then decided to go with xp, couldn't do it either. At the installation screen, screen goes blank. If you plan to do linux, stay away. Also, asus support!, call the customer support line, you will realize how bad it is. I used to be asus fan, but because of their service I quit.
Other Thoughts: Bought a Intel BOXDG33TLM, even though rating is low, worked perfectly for linux (fedora 9). I called Intel, Asus, Gigabyte and tried to find out about their support. Intel is best, second Gigabyte. Couldn't get any support from Asus!, not even from their website.READ FULL REVIEW
