Pros: It never crashes, unlike the very old outdated wired-only Linksys router that this router replaced.
Cons: It won't stand vertically on its own with the included clip-on stand. Even with one cable connected at the back, the router will tip over.
Activity lights are at the rear of the router instead of the front.
Other Thoughts: I'm a little disappointed that I can only get a wireless maximum speed 22Mbps out of this router. I don't know if its the router's fault or my own for not putting in the right settings.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got this drive as an upgrade of a very noisy Toshiba 80GB HD that came with my Playstation 3.
This drive was much quieter than the other one, with no chirping from parking heads, and scratching noises from reading and seeking was at a much lower volume.
Other Thoughts: Bare drive = drive in a non-static bag surrounded by bubble wrap. No mounting screws, no SATA cable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0 LGA 775 VIA PT880 Pro/PT880 Ultra ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: As of now (Dec. 2009), it's the only option to upgrade a motherboard and Intel processor without replacing a AGP video card and DDR1 RAM.
I expected some compatibility problems with the new board, but none of those problems appeared. Windows 7 installed all of the necessary drivers for the new processor and motherboard devices without complaints. I had to re-activate Windows 7 over the phone because a new motherboard is considered a new computer. Other than that, no problems over here.
Cons: There is no speed-step option in the BIOS CPU options to save power while the CPU is idle.
It can only handle a maximum of 2GB of RAM. Fortunately, Windows 7 doesn't seem to need that much RAM.
The PCI-E slot is rated at x4 speed. I have no PCI-E video card yet, so I don't know if this will affect me in the future.
Other Thoughts: There are two versions of this motherboard out there. This is version 2.0, which is the current version and supports more processors and video cards. The listing here didn't make that clear.READ FULL REVIEW
