This review is from: Rosewill RTCA-TN450 High Yield Black Toner Replaces Brother TN-450 TN-420
Pros: The price of course. With the discount code from Newegg this was less than $20. Can't beat that. It worked as soon as I popped it in without having to do any of the extra steps mentioned by other Neweggers. I have the Brother 2240.
Cons: Likely I will not get the full page amount out of this. Even so, I won't hold it against Rosewill or Newegg.
Other Thoughts: If I can get even 1600-1800 pages out of this cartridge I will be more than happy for my $20. On that note I only had 570 pages from the original cartridge included cartridge....that I have had for 2 1/2 years. So, 1600-1800 pages should last me 5-8 years. Don't think i'll be too upset if I get shorted a bit on that 2600 pages.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Never tried the stock firmware, from what I read it was flaky and just not very stable. I flashed with Tomato and have had 100% uptime with this router, minus power outages. I torrent a lot (Fios, so we are talking 100s of GB since purchase) and it has taken it like a champ. Rock solid, works great with the script I found for Wake On Lan (WOL), even use the USB connection for a cheap laser printer.
Cons: Nothing really to count as a con, except for perhaps wireless signal is a bit on the weak side near the opposite end of the house. This is normal though, and to be expected.
Other Thoughts: You really can't go wrong with this router. It will suffice 90% of the people who purchase it. Word of advice though, it maxes around 120ish I think on the WAN bandwidth. I honestly just remember looking it up, and being disappointed that I couldn't upgrade to the Fios 150Mbps tier without the purchase of an upper model. Handles my constant 85Mbps connection easily though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These cards are amazingly fast, at least until the gk110 Geforce cards release. The temps are great in my HAF 932, I was worried about.
Amazingly fast, but needed with 1080p monitors x3.
Looks really great in my case. I love the inclusion of the backplates. Who cares if they are functional, they are very attractive.
Cons: Price of course. I just spent a big chunk of my yearly income on a new setup. These 2 cards were a bulk of the cost.
Was hopeful my Corsair tx750 would do well...PC Power Cooling 950 MK II will be here in 2 days. Enough Said.
SLI blocks the front audio jack on my Ht Omega Claro+ so I have to have an elaborate setup so I can still have speakers AND headphones.
Other Thoughts: I may not have needed the 4GB cards, so I may have overspent. However, with a tri monitor setup I was not willing to risk it. I should have known a 750 wouldn't have been enough. That may be due to the fact I have my entire case brimming with devices 6 HDD, blu ray burner, OC 2500k, soundcard, and multiple fans.READ FULL REVIEW
