Pros: Can't think of any right now.
Cons: Wireless connection required a call to Linksys Tech support for an hour of help. Connection is spotty at best, completely lost at its worst. Despite much higher speed test results, no appreciable difference in the speed for every web surfing and email.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as an upgrade to an old wired HPNA router. I got the combo deal with the draft-N wireless adapter. If it wasn't such a hassle putting everything back the way it was, I would have done it already and sent this thing back. I have the router in a bedroom and the laptop in another room on the same floor and the signal is typically just "good." One move in the wrong direction and the signal strength changes. I have the latest firmware. I've called Linksys again for some optimization help and the changes don't seem to do anything. My wireless radar shows neighbors's signals stronger than this thing's. I don't want to use the DD-WRT (as somjust in case it ends up worse. At least at this point, it *sometimes* works. You shouldn't need 3rd party firmware to get this going working properly. I expected so much more from draft-N. If you buy this to replace another router set up, keep the other stuff handy and the packaging all ready for this thing -- It might be going bacREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ALTEC LANSING 120i 6 Watts 2.0 Speaker
Pros: Small size, cheap price, tone knob.
Cons: No bass at all.
Other Thoughts: I got sick of the big sub taking up the bottom portion of my desk. I wanted small speakers for general purposes. To be honest, I'm pretty surprised at the huge difference. I kept the bass practically turned off on my sub. Well, comparing that to these is night and day. I actually checked my connection to be sure it wasn't pulling out. Its basically all mids and highs, no bass at all. My card's bass controls are useless, no change at all. I was hoping to turn up the bass a little on my card (also was completely off with the sub system) and beef these up. No luck. I expected better from Altec Lansing, even though they were cheap. If you're looking for speakers for anything other than a quick replacement -- I'd say go to the store and take a comparision listen -- and then buy what you like at Newegg. You have to hear them to appreciate the differnces in speakers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy installation for me. I'm using Windows XP with service pack 2. It showed up in disk management right off the bat. Just initialize it from disk management, do the partition and quick format and you're done...I transferred 20 gigs onto it within a couple of minutes.
Other Thoughts: A great upgrade for the price. I haven't had any problems with WD drives before. As always, quick shipping from Newegg. Had it in less than 48 hours.READ FULL REVIEW
