Pros: Typically, I hate using the install CD to set up routers. I would prefer to type in the router IP and change the settings manually. I was forced to use the install CD, which angered me at first, but it set up flawlessly exactly how I would have done it. The router has 2 USB ports which is great for printer and drive sharing. I am only able to use the wireless-n as of now, but the speeds are good (around 16MB/s average). The Cisco Cloud Connect feature is by far my favorite aspect of the new line of Linksys routers. It allows you to configure your router settings from Cisco's cloud network. If you are away from your PC, you can simply login and set up FTP, view connected devices, and observe/change router settings. The simple tap quick connect card seems like a novel idea, but I haven't had a chance to try it on a compatible device yet.
Cons: After 3 days of owning the router, I would have given it 4 stars. After a week, it's down to 1. Apparently, the router does not have a "sleep" mode for the connected storage devices. The router corrupted my 3TB USB drive on two different occasions (requiring me to format both times), only being plugged in for about a day. This renders the possibility of running an FTP out of the question. There is a lack of wireless configuration settings. On my XBox 360, I get a full strength signal, but cannot stream Netflix without chopping/lagging. I have changed every possible setting in the router (only channels and bandwidth can really be changed) with no fix. Netflix streams fine on my PS3 and works fine on the XBox with my old router.
Other Thoughts: I RMA'd this router because it seems to be too raw. The compatibility with devices hasn't been hashed out, and while most of the feature are wonderful, I can't lose the basic functionality a router to compensate. Maybe when Linksys releases a router with these features that works 100% out of the box, I will consider buying it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tons of features and options for you to customize. Fairly straightforward interface, especially if you are used to linksys devices. Worked well while it was functioning.
Cons: Had lots of problems connecting my Playstation 3 wirelessly. I couldn't figure out if it was the Playstation or the router; ended up being settings in the router. Owned the router for 1 year and 8 days before it gave up and died. Warranty exceeded, now I'm out the purchase price. Not my favorite $180 purchase. Won't be buying another Cisco/Linksys device for a while.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Pros: This case is amazing. My pc temp dropped at least 10ºC. It was a very fun case to assemble, and the removable hard drive cases with thumbscrew are one of the best ideas ever.
Cons: Case is a little smaller than it looks, and the psu being mounted on the bottom could cause some heartache for some.
Other Thoughts: Great CaseREAD FULL REVIEW
