This review is from: NETGEAR 5 Port Gigabit Desktop Switch (GS605AV)
Pros: Got this as a Christmas present to work with my new Netgear WNDR3700. It's designed specifically for AV devices, but I'm really just running two PCs on it (one is a Mac Mini feeding my Apple TV). Haven't noticed any bottlenecks and latency seems low.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: It's awful shiny.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Dual-band, looks sleeker than my old WRT54G, haven't had to restart it though I've only had it about a week.
Cons: I was sorta hoping for better range, but it's still not terrible
Other Thoughts: I got this for a Christmas present to replace a Linksys E1200 that required a restart at least once, if not twice, a week (it got so bad, I just reverted back to my old WRT54G). It seems to handle traffic a lot better than the E1200 did. I just hope it's nearly as reliable as the WRT.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I'm very happy with my purchase of this board. Tons of USB ports (don't need my hub anymore), 6 SATA 3.0 ports, and SLI on an AMD chipset is just awesome. I was fretting over how to move to a DDR3 capable board and still keep my GTX460s.
Cons: I guess my only gripe is the placement of the lone PCI slot. If you have more than one GPU, you can't use the PCI slot. Like many other people, I was still rocking my old Linksys 54G wireless card. Unfortunately, I had to go drop a little more money on a USB wireless dongle. If they swapped the bottom PCI-E 16 for the top PCI-E 4, the board wouldn't have this problem.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm really happy with this board. I replaced an ASRock 990FX Extreme3 with this and am really happy about it.READ FULL REVIEW
