This review is from: FIFA Soccer 13 for Sony PS3 #zMC
Pros: good graphic
Cons: I've played FIFA Soccer online for about 2 years and I have more wins than loses. If you play long enough, you'd know this game plays you, you don't play the game. It decides which game you will win or lose and it's very predictable. If you're to lose, doesn't matter what you do, there's always stupid things make you lose. Also, the pathetic first 5 minutes and the 45th and 90th minutes dramatic in the game that can make you either win or lose too... One more thing, the referee sometime wears the same color uniform from one the the teams, as well we sometime too teams wear the same color uniform like white or black... EA doesn't know how to make a conditional statement so that 2 teams or the referee won't be wearing the same color.
Other Thoughts: I highly suggest NOT to buy this game and even the next FIFA game as they're all the same. You'll regret. Why pay for the game that is not based on your skills but it's based on the "mood" of the game and those who programmed it? The game is programmed that way to make players keep playing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server (top performance review at smallnetbuilder.com)
Pros: Took me 15 minutes to get the wired and wireless networks up running with no problem, solid performance, fast and fast, reasonable price.
Cons: "weird" design, I just don't like the so call "slick" design but I bought it for performance and reliability not for artistic look. If you complain about the look, go get the Cisco Linksys e3000... just for display, not performance.
Other Thoughts: I bought a new piece of junk Cisco Linksys e3000 and junked it after a month (see its review), bought this one a very happy with it. Good signal, fast and reliable (been using 4 or 5 months so far). I only reset it once or twice 'cause the DSL line was down.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Reasonable price, easy setup, good speed with CAT5e/CAT6 wired network... but... NOT so fast, read on my problems.
Cons: With the "Very Good" wireless signal, the wireless is inconsistent and keep dropping connection. Pinging is time out sporadically which caused streaming video to freez especially with Skype. Slick looking but BAD design, got hot quickly.
I owned the Asus WL-520GU router with Tomato firmware for a couple years. Things worked perfectly including streaming Skype via wireless network but time to move on Gigabit nework so I purchased this Linksys E3000 based on its specs and reviews.
The initial installation was a no brainer, got everything configured, up runing within 20 minutes with native firmware. Wired and Wireless tested successfully. Like other users said, the router got hot quickly so I attached 4 small legs to the router to jack it up about 3 inches high off the floor. The heat was improved.... but it's just the begining of problems... (read on my "Other thoughts")
Other Thoughts: When I tested my Roku XD for Netflix, it stopped working and the wireless could not communicate with the router. After troubleshooting, I changed the Wireless Mode from Auto to B/G Mixed, the Roku started to work again. OK, I blamed on my Roku for being old. When I used Skype via wireless, the video froze up so often which never happened before. Pinging some IP on the internet, the responses were time out sporadically. I tried on another wireless computer and had the same result. I upgraded the native firmware to TomatoUSB (sweet as always....) with the hope to improve my wireless connection but still NO LUCK!
I've owned a couple of Linksys routers years ago and I never trusted Linksys product because they were unreliable. After Cisco bought the name so I thought it was improved (WRONG!!!). Now it's safe for me to say GOOD BYE to Cisco Linksys routers for good!
I'm looking at the Asus RT-N56U Wireless-N Gigabit router at this point...
Good luck if you're buying this E3000 router.
