Pros: super easy to overclock, inexpensive, excellent bang-for-your-buck.
Cons: only a dual core, no hyper-threading.
Other Thoughts: (Note: I had my g3258 overclocked to 4.6ghz on an Asus Z97-A mobo, cooled with a closed loop water cooling solution from coolermaster)
If you do not need a ton of multi-core performance, or you are on a really tight budget, this is the CPU you need. I did an entire system build & used this CPU for about 9 months before I could save up for my i7 4790k. This little dual core cpu did the trick for all my everyday tasks: chrome, word, acrobat, outlook, spotify, remote support & even most of my gaming: WoW, TF2, CoD_MW3; it wasn't till GTA5 & BF4 that i could really see the cpu struggling.
I have since used this CPU in multiple builds for friends & family who need everyday productivity & some light gaming. I HIGHLY recommend this cpu!

This review is from: Tek Republic TUN-300 USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter
Pros: it just works. plug into a usb 3 slot, win7/8/10 auto detects, plug in ethernet cable & boom! gigabit speeds.
I carry this with me when i run into a situation where i have a PC that needs gigabit speeds to move data quickly over a 100FE connection. I use it with my ultrabook that doesn't have an ethernet port to connect to wired networks where wifi isn't available.
Cons: it's a bit flaky with macs. it doesn't like my macbook air & only works 3 out of 10 times or so that i've tried. tried it with a mac pro and it works like a champ.
Other Thoughts: keep in mind, it could just be an issue with my macbook air. if you are buying for use on PCs i think you'll be pleased. if buying for a mac, just get a thunderbolt adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
