Pros: one worked
Cons: one didn't work
Other Thoughts: Spent two nights trying to figure out why system kept hanging when booting ubuntu after installing amd drivers. After numerous formats and reinstalls, I thought I just go ahead a try the second card, and it worked no problem, annoyed but happy.
Put the first card back in, back to no boot. It was a bit suspet when red lines appeared on the screen very briefly on boot and on shutdown. Normally when cards are bad its red lines and blocks everywhere, but not on this baby.
Anyway anybody that bought just one of these, would still be trying to get to work.
Even though these cards are in great demand, gigabyte need to do some better quality control, as its real time consuming doing there QC at home by installing OS's.
Just sent RMA to newegg, and I'm sure they be great as always at getting me another one.

Pros: much, much, more responsive than my old isp provided gateway device. i've flashed it, tried to tweak it, but it's just really bad.
Cons: had to lookup online how to put it in bridge mode, wish they put that in there instructions so i didn't have to rewire everything halfway through to get online to look it up! my old somewhat working gateway GT704 was made by actiontec, so when i opened the newegg package and seen the same name my heart sank, but it turned out that this product really works great, buy it.
Other Thoughts: bridge mode for the people that don't know, this modem has only one port, so you can connect your router to it, then once you put it in bridge mode, you make your router log into your dsl provider straight through the modem. thus you get more ports, and wireless off your routerREAD FULL REVIEW
