GIGABYTE Radeon R9 290 GV-R929OC-4GD 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Card is blazing fast, headroom for more overclocking. I was skeptical of the R9 290 after initial reviews with temperature and noise levels, but it is barely louder than my old 7850, and hasn't gone over 70 C so far. Running at 1440p with ultra details and high frame rates

Cons: AMD still has work to do on their drivers. Eyefinity is still a hassle when not in games, issues persist with monitors waking from sleep.

Card is massive, but that was expected. In an Antec 900 I had to remove the fan bracket from the hdd cage to install.

OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Excellent speed for the cost

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have bought 3 of these and have zero issues with any of them. One is running as my system drive, a second as a dedicated drive for Steam games, and the third is being used as an external drive. I've seen quite a few reviews complaining about reliability, but all three of mine have worked out of the box and have been trooping right along

D-Link Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L), Wireless AC 1750, Dual-Band, Gigabit Ports, USB SharePort, mydlink enabled
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Is it faster than wireless N? Without a doubt. Writing data to my NAS over wifi is twice as fast as it was I'm limited by the write speed of the NAS rather than the transmission speed. I am able to stream media all over the house without any hiccups.

I have two of these, the second set up as a bridge to get higher speed network to my second story office without having to run cables. So far the connection has been rock solid.

Treats the 2.4GHz band as a separate SSID, keeping older and slower devices from bogging down your 5GHz stuff. Base configuration is simple.

Haven't had any signal strength issues on any of my devices through my 3 story townhouse.

Cons: Setting up the second unit as a bridge was not entirely simple, and does not work exactly per the directions.

D-Links cloud configuration is a work in progress.

Other Thoughts: With my setup, having two main hubs for network devices (living room with game consoles, NAS, and htpc - and office with multiple computers) having two bridged works great to get high speed networking without any wires. With a lack of wireless AC cards, I probably wouldn't recommend it for someone with devices more spread out around the house.
