This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation Extreme AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router - WZR-1750DHP
Pros: Purchased 9-8-2013. Note using firmware v2.10 update via internal GUI link.
Upgrading from WRT54GL with tomato which still working great, Wanted to utilize my Comcast Blast full potential. I've always used linksys/cisco products. I've tried Netgear when wireless N was top in the market, but was very disappointed with its reliability. I gave up and went back to WRT54GL ever since. I ran across a great deal on the Buffalo WZR-1750DHP from newegg and decided to make the switch based on reviews. My selling point was all the features (USB 3.0 + usb 2.0 and dual-band) mainly the Dual 800 MHZ processor IT FLYs!. This is the best choice I've ever made in a long time and worth the wait. The WAN to LAN internet speed are like as if you were connected directly to the cable modem ( SB6121 Motorola) big plus. Also for the first time I've notice the wireless speed test are identical to the LAN as if you were wired using the 2.4GHz/5GHz via testmy.net and ispgeeks.com and other none flash sites. Getting 60up/11Down currently paying 50/10 service. I really like the guest account wih the added security. 3 year warranty is not bad vs other manufacturers. First time using Buffalo products.
Cons: Range could be better but is decent and very stable. Other than that none so far.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Running this woofer with an old Sony STR-DE685. I can really feel the floor vibrate on certain movie scenes. No distortions whatsoever. Worth every penny. I will invest in another one once I get the 7.2 surround sound. also love the auto standby feature.

This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I was amazed how nicely build this board was in comparison to my older Asus M4A79 Deluxe like that cheap heatsink asus used on it. Currently running this board with Phenom II X4 955, my old Asus HD6950, (Free with purchase)GeIL EVO Veloce Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model GEV38GB1600C9DC, 250GB Samsung SSD 830 and Seagate ST3750640AS x2 as raid 1. I will be upgrading to FX8350. I really love this board, their click bios is very nice and straight forward and did I mention FAST BOOT TIMES win7 Ultimate 64bit. I really like their fast charge USB option even after you shutdown your computer thou I don't shut it down.
Cons: None So far
Other Thoughts: Switched from Asus to MSI, was a fan since my first board socket A A7N8X Deluxe which I still have. Asus has failed me with their bad reputation and poor products. Just look at the Better Business Bureau review and customer complaint there is even an alert on them. So i decided to try MSI since there aren't that many manufactures left other than Gigabyte which will be my next option if MSI fails me. But I'm definitely staying from Asus atleast untill they get their act together.READ FULL REVIEW
