Pros: I got two of these and threw one into client mode and the other into routing mode and my household has over 20 devices if you include wireless connected to. Everything works like a dream, a little trouble with lease renewal when ISP leases expired but a firmware update came out and it has been fixed ever since.
The configuration is a dream to use, with basic setup being a cinch and with the ability to modify some of the more advanced settings of networking. I'm very fussy about my network; I need to have everything just so. A router like this one suits me.
Cons: I think it's a bit pricey.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rexus PST-3 Digital Power Supply Tester with LCD
Pros: Easy to use and read voltages.
Cons: The +12.5V2 shows as 'LL' on one of my supplies. I thought it might be bad, so I tested it against a good supply in a running machine, and it also indicates the same 'LL'. As it turns out, it seems all my PSUs on all my computers indicate 'LL'. I question the accuracy of this tester.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've heard the stories that they fail. I believe it happened to people. I'm not saying it can't happen to me. But so far, so good -- never had a WDC drive fail on me and I've been building since 1995 and always bought WDC. I owned this one for 4 years and 4 months exactly, and so far, still ticking without a hitch. If it dies tomorrow, I would be very embarassed about giving it 5 eggs, but it seems to be on par with the good WDC quality I have always witnessed.
For desktop computing and gaming, access time seems plenty fine. Even with a lot of disk operations (I'm talking about EXTREME loads here) from many programs at once it doesn't take too long to clear up.
Other Thoughts: I recently purchased 3x of the similar WD5000AAKX from NewEgg which for the most part appears very similar to this one. As far as I know, the only difference is its a SATA 6.0Gb/s instead of a 3. I hope I have a positive experience with those as well. Never know about a drive though until its been used :)READ FULL REVIEW
