This review is from: Intel BOXD510MO Intel Atom D510 Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
Pros: Has everything a system needs except the RAM and Hard Drive. I plugged in an older ATX (v2.03) power supply and it's working great so far.
Cons: I was installing Ubuntu from a USB cd drive and USB stick but the install would complete only for the system to not find the boot information on the hard drive. I went through this a few times before checking the BIOS version. Also you can't update to the latest BIOS version without install the previous one that came before it. Kind of dumb that way. Lost about 2 evenings getting this resolved.
Other Thoughts: Perfect board for a network file server since you can plug in an old PCI card RAID card and hook up some old IDE hard drives. Gigabit NIC is good as well.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: The gigabit side of this router is awesome, the Wi-fi has been working flawlessly, and the router has a lot of extra features.
Haven't seen any random restarts or screwups yet, which is a big improvement over my previous experiences.
Cons: The software wants to do automatic setups but if you know what you want to do its sometimes hard to find the setting for it on the configuration pages.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works great out of the box and setup is a breeze.
Cons: I have it setup with wireless, wired, and power line. Seems to crash when I'm watching HD video between one computer and another while using the internet. I'm not even using bittorrent when it crashes.
Other Thoughts: I don't think I'd buy it again if I knew that it would be crashy.READ FULL REVIEW
