  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Perfect for your basic home networks
Easy setup. (Software included or use your browser)
Lot's of options
Open NAT options for gaming (xbox live included)

Can handle my ISP's speeds just fine (25-55 Mbps dwn. 4 Mbps up). I currently have 10 devices in my house that access the internet through this router, and they all connect perfectly.

Cons: The bright white! agh!
The wifi range. Not good, not bad...just average.

Other Thoughts: Those having trouble with this router dropping connections...Try changing DNS.

GIGABYTE GV-R545-1GI Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap
Plays HD content without a sweat
Slim Profile
Don't need a 6-pin plug

Cons: I took one egg off because I only have one other card to compare it to. I'm sure there is something a little better out there in the same price range.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for and HTPC build.
Don't expect to play any games with this.
My old Radeon 4830 w/512mb ddr2 would eat this card for lunch
If you want to play current gen games, spend at least a $100 or more.

ASUS Eee Pad Slider SL101-B1-WT NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GB Memory 32GB Flash 10.1
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, compact, great battery life, lots of apps. The sliding keyboard is a must if you plan on doing more than just posting on Facebook.

Cons: Android OS. Very limited support for various media types. Decent sound, but could have been better. But still, it has better speakers than a lot of laptops I've come across. Some games are buggy.

Other Thoughts: I read a lot of reviews on this thing before buying one for the girlfriend and I was a little leery about taking the plunge. Mainly because of what people said about it having wireless and GPS issues. But after having it for a month, I realize now that those reviewers were most likely Apple fanatics posing as eee pad owners. Wireless and GPS work flawlessly, and Android, IMO, is much snappier than IOS.
But that is also where the eee pad falls short. Yes, Android. While it is great for a smart just doesn't belong on a tablet with this much power. I feel like I'm using an over-sized phone that can't make phone calls. You are very limited with what you can do with it. Can't wait until I can get a better version of Linux running on this thing. And the keyboard. Genius. Just like the ipad, typing on a touchscreen is laggy and often frustrating. And seriously, do some research. The Transformer Prime with the docking station is more expensive, thicker, and heavier. Enjoy
