LINKSYS E3000 Wireless Router simultaneous Dual Band Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4GHz / 5GHz up to 300Mbps with USB Built-in UPnP AV Media Server
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The router is awesome. I've ran it with DD-WRT for a year with no problems. I get 300mps connections with my Intel 6300 as well as good range.
1) To those complaining about speeds - one cannot an internet speed test utility to gauge performance! That will only indicate how fast your broad band connection is!
2) To get a good feel of how fast wireless or wired routing is, one must use this on an internal network. Running on wifi remoted into a VM on my ESXi server.

Cons: 1) jUNK stock firmware - but what consumer router has anything good?
2) Unit does run warm. I've placed a 140mm fan underneath it to keep it cool. However, I've increased the signal transmission via DD-WRT

Other Thoughts: Get this router! The only time I power cycle it is when the power is off longer than my UPS will keep it running. I've never had issues with it in well over a year.

CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model CMSO8GX3M1A1333C9
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I installed 4 dimms in my Lenovo W520 in in December of 2011. They have worked great for over two months. I use vmWare Workstation 8 to simulate client/server deployments. This typically consists of a router/firewall (usually pfSense since it is a light install), WS2k8 R2 DC/DNS server, 1-4 WS2K8 R2 app servers (to simulate actual deployments) and at least one client. 50-85% of memory on the machine is utilized on a normal basis with no issues.

Cons: No cons, only wishes. See below

Other Thoughts: The only wish I have is simply to have a better selection of affordable 1.35v RAM. Lower voltage = longer batttery life and less heat generated. It isn't a concern, and isn't a con. Definitely looking forward to the price of 8gb DIMMs falling further - I have a machine at the office on the way that is next inline to get upgraded.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9T-12GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great Ram! Ordered two of these for a dual processor build. All 24gb recognized without a problem. The build is actually an ESXi development server, will be adding another 24gb soon. Can't fault G.SKILL at all - in the past year for myself and others I have purchased roughly 60gb of RAM with no problems!

Cons: None, if any, it would be that NewEgg needs to run more specials on them!! Another 15% off sale would be nice!

Other Thoughts: Get G.Skill ram. New egg's packing can be questionable; buy it with something they must put in a box! Just buying RAM, new egg will ship it in a bubble wrapped envelope. Not very safe, IMO.. I worked at UPS, I am shocked that the egg would ship memory in an envelope!!
