Pros: cisco next gen firewall is cutting edge. Over kill for home network but works flawlessly using Comcast or Verizon fios as your ISP.
Cons: Not cheap
Other Thoughts: Newegg fails to provide cisco smartnet contracts as options for regular newegg account holders.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Simple and easy to setup for the average user if you are using other cisco equipment. Works well with layer 3 switch using dhcp If you purchase a poe layer 3 switch, you won't need the additional power supply.
Other Thoughts: Newegg sells cisco but fails to offer cisco smartnet contracts to other than newegg business. They should not provide cisco at all on their standard accounts.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 4 sli ready, 64gb and the flash update allows me to run all the new intel cpus. Entirely too much to list. It is eye candy and decent performance numbers to support it.
Cons: Was technical support. I had one board bad right away. I didn't buy the extended warranty from retail store. The system wouldn't see over 48gb even though there was 64gb in the machine. I went round and round with asus tech support who blamed it on the memory company. It ended up being the motherboard issue. But it was out of the 30 day return policy from the store. I ended up buying another one to run two machines but bought the extended warranty. In the end, I had to use asus advance replacement at 45 days old. Talk about angry, now the board audio has failed and now I can't use the advanced replacement from asus. This is a big turn off. I'm so sick of asus excuses why they won't offer me the best option to replace the board. They told me I already used it and the policy says only once. I said, if they provided me with the proper answer the first time instead of taking two weeks to realize the board was bad instead of the memory, I would of returned it.
Other Thoughts: The asus customer service has been a pain, period.. Bottom line, you only get one advance replacement option and it is a refurbished board. Asus says you can't use it again, even though the board has 3 years warranty left. So if you don't want any downtime, consider buying another brand who honors their advance replacement option more than once because things happen. Very disappointed about asus allowing the best service available for the customer. They just don't seem to care. one week to get a response. I filed a complaint and they gave me some policy. Simply, customer service is everything. I don't expect anything less and asus simply doesn't care.READ FULL REVIEW
