ASUS GeForce GT 610 GT610-SL-1GD3-L 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Basic card install, nothing special.
Good speeds (not benchmarked) in our HTPC system to allow for some basic gaming.

Cons: Software is a bit obnoxious.

Other Thoughts: This is a great little card. It handles what I throw at it, and is actually more capable than I expected for the price. Don't expect this to play games at 1080p at maxed out settings, that's not what this card is. It doesn't compare to the GTX 680 in my desktop rig, but that's not what this card is. It's a great video playback card to be used for occasional family gaming.

XTRAC PADS Logic Mouse Pad - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Awesome surface 01/03/2011

This review is from: XTRAC PADS Logic Mouse Pad - Black

Pros: Excellent mouse surface
Cleans easily
Stays where you put it*

Cons: Extremely sticky backing*
Somewhat tedious to "install"
Not very forgiving to bends

Other Thoughts: This is a great mousing surface, and works fantastically with laser mice. I've had a Habu on it since day one (which is an excellent, but discontinued, device) and have to say that it is the best mousing surface I have ever used.

You may have noticed above that I placed an asterisk next to a couple of items. Here is why: The backing on the sheet is extremely adherant once applied and let to sit for a long while. I can tell you now that your desk need not be chipping or peeling for it to remove the paint. I, unfortunately, suffered that very fate. It is my own fault, as I should have known better... but, let my mistake serve as a lesson for you. That aside, this "pad" is definitely worth the money, hands down.

ASUS WL-520gU 802.11b/g Wireless Router up to 54Mbps with All-in-One Print Server/ DD-WRT Open Source support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Clean looking router, stock firmware is fairly robust, dd-wrt compatible (using the asus mini firmware), low price, ASUS quality, USB support (1 port).

Cons: You must put the router into firmware recovery mode and use a Windows based program (or TFTP) to change out to third party firmware in certain circumstances, grammar and spelling in stock firmware is horrible, runs a little warm, couldn't find USB Mass Storage device support in stock firmware. I don't believe it supports storage stock.

Other Thoughts: The only real big complaint I have is that the firmware apparently doesn't support dd-wrt update from the web interface, and stock won't let you access storage devices connected via USB. This router would have garnered more eggs, but the small issues with the stock firmware could be a big turn off for some users not looking to flash to dd-wrt/tomato/openwrt.
