Pros: It's a router.
Handles a lot of LAN traffic well.
VERY easy setup, if that's what you're looking for.
Cons: It's my own fault for not researching enough and maybe expecting way too much for what this costs, but the "parental controls" are a joke. It's OpenDNS filters, that's it. I had thought pre-purchase that the router would offer filtering and time controls for each computer on my network separately with differing filter levels for each..boy was I wrong. If you use the controls, they filter your entire network; if you want your own PC unfiltered, you have to run a "work-around" in the background.
Other Thoughts: Not much of a "real world" upgrade over my WRT320N. Not worth the hassle of returning it, but would not purchase again nor recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Seems very solidly built and holds drive very securely. Next enclosure I get will be the usb3 version of this, hope it is as well-constructed as this one.
This product has >1200 five-egg reviews for a reason.
Cons: There's no sort of stand included if you intend to set it up vertically.
Other Thoughts: Windows 7 keeps giving me the me old "this device can perform faster" pop-up. New system and new drivers...time to do some benchmarks and check bios settings.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: keeps 4770k @4.4, 1.28v at 70C under Prime95 small FFT load, goes up to 80C at 4.6 and 1.35v (stable overnight but too much voltage for me). Disclaimer: this is non-avx instruction set stress testing.
Vastly superior mounting method than my old H50 (ring-interlock system), hardest part of mounting in the top of my HAF932 was getting the stock fan (with the allen-head screws) out.
I've got the 4-pin fans plugged into my mobo headers so I can use Fan Xpert2 to control them (works great). Don't have the USB plugged in, I may try it eventually but am satisfied enough with my current setup I may not....so I can't comment on the Corsair Link stuff or running fans through the pump hub.
Cons: wish it came with a usb plug or adapter to use a rear panel port instead of one of the motherboard headers (used by my front panel ports)
Other Thoughts: firstname.lastname@example.org, 1.28v
