TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very stable - after 1 month of 24/7 use it hasn't dropped WAN yet.
Has all the features I could ask for.
WAN covers every corner of my 4 bedroom house with stock antennas.

Cons: None yet. Hope this lasts.

Other Thoughts: First a word about Newegg. This unit arrived extremely fast (rush ordered) and VERY well wrapped with nary a blemish on the plastic wrap. Kudos to the egg!

I purposely delayed this review for one month since I've read enough reviews that getting a reliable and stable router seems like a crapshoot.

After a month of constant use it turns out I made the right choice.

I flashed the latest TP-Link firmware and so far it's been working out although my needs are small with only a wireless printer, a Nexus 7 tablet and one smartphone in the house.

If I start having issues then maybe I'll look to Gargoyle or DD-WRT but none so far.

HyperX Blu 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4GX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great ram for the money. I bumped up the clock settings to the rated 1600mhz and it passed the Prime95 torture test for 20 minutes with flying colors. I probably could have overclocked it higher with stability but I'm a light gamer. Five stars for Kingston and five for Newegg shipping.

Cons: nada

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit as an add-on to match my other 4gb of ram (same brand and model) for my first-built budget rig. If you are starting your own build remember it is better to get the most GB per stick for each channel. As an example for 8GB of memory, it is better to use 2x4GB sticks than to use 4x2GB sticks. I wish I knew this earlier but I'm still satisfied.

MSI 760GM-E51 AM3 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Onboard LAN gave out after one week 06/05/2011

This review is from: MSI 760GM-E51 AM3 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Nice budget board for the money. Onboard DIP switches make overclocking caveman easy.

Cons: Onboard Network adapter gave out after 1 week which cost time and money.

This was a head scratcher because I was getting the proper LED diagnostic signals, connection and activity. However, no internet. Apparently something shorted out. I had to shell out some extra bucks for a new gigabit network card, popped it in and now all is well.

Other Thoughts: With only one PCI Express x16 slot you'll have to pay attention to the length of your graphics card. If it's more than 9 inches long then it will block the SATA1 connector. My Sapphire Radeon HD5830 Xtreme card covers the SATA1 connector rendering it useless. It's not a big problem since you have 4 other SATA ports but if you're running multiple drives it can be.

Finally, ALWAYS take anti-static precautions especially when swapping/installing Mobos. Use a wrist strap or make one out of a piece of wire. I suspect a good number of DOA/BSOD's happen because people neglect this simple yet important step.
