Pros: lots of light, low cost, low maintenance, cool running
Cons: new learning curve for Lumens.
Other Thoughts: okay.. I bought the 5000 Lumens.. I really didn't understand what that was.. I thought it had to do with the brightness but it has to do with the color of the light. The 2700 is really a more yellowish light that you are familiar with in incandesants. The 5000 is so white it almost looks like a different type of light all together. The middle one is between yellow and Bright White. But to have a 60 watt bulb run on 9 to 6 watts is just great and even amazing.. Buy them here because you can't beat the prices at the brick and mortar stores.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: This computer is my new test board with the 4770 lga 1150 chip. I love the board in every way. Its only been a week and I am still learning more about it. Some people had told me that Gigabyte had lost their edge in Overclocking. sorry I don't see it. I saw that others had others had problems but mine has been almost intuitive. Knowing what I am doing as I do it and working with me. If I had to give a one word description of this board its "HUNGRY". Like a dog that is a foodie. Its wants more all the time.. OCZ revo drive.. Gimme gimme. new video card.. Can I get that driver for you? overclock it.. Go for it if you got the guts.. This thing is very durable. Ultra Durable like the Marketing says. I have bent the Motherboard to get wires under risers and things have fallen on it and its still working new. Its on a test bench so I love the on button on the board.. even has a different color when it sleeps.. and no problems after waking it up.. This is an awesome board for a build it and forget it type to a guy like me that loved to play. This one can do it all. I LOVE IT.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: MIMO. multiple In Multiple out, Silent AP, Easy install. Fast enough for average user, Range is okay. PCIe x 1 is super quick to find device and use it.
Cons: Range is okay, AP Mode can get irritating. software wants you to quit program and open back up in Admin mode,
Other Thoughts: Over all I liked it. Price range its great for what it does. I live in a single Ranch style home and I used the unit at the far room from the Router. the signal has to pass through several walls and one brick wall and I still got a 3 bar signal. But with that I averaged only 100mb/s feed. not bad but I prefer Dual band AP Models. This would be great for a Home Entertainment PC in the other room from the router but not too far. I was always able to watch Netflix and Facebook at the same time.
Best if you just install the Driver only unless you are going to use the Silent AP Feature. The Software can get bothersome with every new start up if you use it. but for AP it is worth it..
