Pros: Very compact, every type of connection known to man and several known to monkeys. Boots through EFI bios quickly lots of features. Recognized my APU and Ram timings on first boot.
Cons: Only 4 sata ports. I am using this as a HTPC with a 2TB WD AV-GP drive and a 128gb SSD boot drive. Not much room for storage expansion. Not worth taking an egg of though
Other Thoughts: My build

This review is from: Amped Wireless R20000G High Power Wireless-N 600mW Gigabit Dual Band Router
Pros: So, I bought this ~week it was available via Newegg. I also bought the repeater SR20000G. I am in college and My apartment and my friends apartment is in the adjacent building. He has the repeater and I have the router. Together we split a 100mbps connection. The signal is astounding the 5ghz off the repeater pulls down around 60% of the speed at a distance of 80 feet(Line of Sight). I did have a problem with the first one but Amped was kind enough to send me a BRAND NEW one and not a replacement. The Dyndns settings in the router also makes WOL entertaining for my desktop,HTPC as well as hosting mumble servers and whatnot.
Oh and I can pick up signal as far away as 150 feet from the router and get some connection.
Cons: Occasionally when I ask it to make me dinner it tells me no.

Pros: This card is an absolute beast, well I must say THESE cards considering I have two in SLI...It out performs on everything I can throw at it. Both of mine are overclocked to 860mhz but I have pushed it to 900mhz for benchmarking. It scores just as high if not higher as two gtx 570s. I chose this card over a gtx 570 because it has a much better cooling structure (dual fans). Best part is newegg sent me sibling cards with S/N right after each other. No micro stuttering on these cards. I was worried that they would run a bit warm, but they sit in idle at 29C in my case and under full power they hit upper 60s.
Cons: The fans...you know they turn on when it sounds like a jet turbine firing out of the back of your computer, but with the power these cards have, they hardly turn on. Only really heard them fire up under benchmarking.
