Pros: Very fast. Stable after much difficulty, effort and tinkering.
Cons: Installation of software was not straight forward. SSD is unstable with normal install. Disk loses communication with operating system and drops out causing system crash.
Other Thoughts: My final system: intel 2011 socket, core i7 3820, win7 64 bit, 16GB RAM, Gigabyte X79 UD3 mobo, GTX 560Ti, 2 of these ADATAs in raid0 on Intel X79 controller. First install with raid0 was unstable. I also tried these without raid with same problems. Ended up getting an Intel Cherryville 520 SSD, installing Windows fresh, installing all updates for OS and firmware and drivers, then finally copying stable image with Acronis True Image Home to the ADATA Raid0 volume. Very nice after that: stable, blazing FAST. I have read that there is no trim support for RAID0, so I'll see how long my system lasts like this :-(READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Intel Q9550, 4G G.SKILL DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800), Corsair 550W pow supp, Intel BOXDX48BT2 X48 ATX Mobo, 1 Nvidia GTX 280 (yeah, my power supply is under spec, I know). I've built a bunch of computers and this is the best case I've owned hands down, even against some of the more expensive cases. I'm picky about noise and this one is wonderfully quiet. It's also quite light - lighter than any other case I've used. Extra stability obtained from the feet that optionally twist out if desired. Everything is solid, not flimsy. Easy to work with when putting in parts and plenty of room. The connections for headphones, mic, 1394 and USB are not behind the door, so you don't have to open anything to get to them. Door lock and key for the security concious. The pictures don't really do this case justice, it's a nice looking piece in the room. I use air cooling only and this case keeps things nice and cool (although, I don't have extraordinary cooling needs).
Cons: I had to get a drill out to ream out one hole that didn't quite line up with the power supply screw hole. This was really not that big of a deal, though, as the amount of adjustment was small.
Other Thoughts: I'm not into LEDs and flashiness and this one has plenty. This is a con for me, but for others it may not be.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DI-624 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
Pros: I bought one of these 2 years ago and it works great! No complaints. I'm mainly using it for the firewall capabilities and I can set it up and use it from either SUSE Linux or Win XP. It is easy to use, works well, the wireless works well, and the product keeps the riffraff out if you configure it right.
Cons: I thought that since it was good once, it'll be good again for a gift. I ordered a new one and tried to configure it. It configured OK, but the first problem I had with this new one is ability to connect to certain sites and retrieve downloads. I know the router is the problem because I replace this element in my system with another just like it (and same settings) and the old one works. Tech support was not very helpful. After upgrading the firmware the router worked even worse. It kept on resetting and I was never able to use it to connect to the Internet.READ FULL REVIEW
