NETGEAR WGR614 Wireless-G Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 1. Small footprint.
2. Bland white color goes with anything.
3. Can be laid horizontal or can sit vertical with included feet.
4. Easy to install driver.
5. Compatible with Windows XP networking.

Easy network setup control panel. Port forwarding, IP address reservation, hardware firewall, IP and content blocking, and more

Cons: Some features on the control panel do not work. You cannot use the feature which emails you a notification when someone visits a restricted site.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this router for over three years and it works fine. The wireless speed is slow compared to the new routers these days, but it works fine for my home network. Overall, a decent little router.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4870 DirectX 10.1 GV-R487D5-1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is an update to a previous review I wrote a few months ago. This card is great! Less expensive than other 1GB 4870 cards, Zalman cooler, can handle anything I play at max settings without problems.

Cons: 1. Size, which I knew when buying it. Card is so long and so wide that it cuts my CoolerMaster Centurion 5 almost in half.
2. Power hookups; requires two PCI-E connectors. Comes with an adapter, but make sure your PSU has enough spare plugs.
3. Rebate (see below)

Other Thoughts: The rebate processing "confirmed" receipt of my rebate application (the actual form w/barcode, not my online registration) quickly after I sent it in. It took 10 weeks for them to "process" my application. They then emailed me saying I would receive my rebate check in 8-10 weeks. TWENTY WEEKS FOR A REBATE IS OUTRAGEOUS!

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of vents. The fans are relatively quiet. Lightweight (aluminum). Toolless design. Markings next to standoff holes indicate which holes should be used for which mobo form factors.

Cons: The manual is very skimpy. If my mobo manual hadn't be so good (Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P), I might not have been able to figure out which leads went where for the power led, HDD activity led, case speaker, etc.

Other Thoughts: A nice case for the price.
