Pros: More memory to do stuff with in MacBook pro 3,1
Cons: My system has kernel panicked twice today, AND outright frozen twice. I ran memtest and it said everything is fine though. So I'm not sure what's going on. It's really bothering me
Other Thoughts: Any thoughts, ideas, help? Test says it all works. Tried switching slots and it won't even boot if I do that (it's in the lower), and I'm getting ridiculously infuriating freezes and kernel panics. Not what I'd hoped.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DD-WRT Supported, Rosewill RNX-N150RTv2 - Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Router - IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, Up to 150 Mbps Data Rates, 5 dBi Fixed Antenna, WDS Bridge Connection, QoS and VPN Supported
Pros: Newegg shipping is terrific, ordered it and chose the cheapest standard shipping option and still got it next day.
router is small, much smaller than my old di-624 (8 year old tech) that died on me, so less of a footprint.
in every feasable respect this router is tenfold better what my previous one was, which is great. my last one worked fine for me as a college student with a bit of wifi, so such an upgrade is a welcomed one, especially for the security (last one only had WEP... pffffft.) and the PRICE. with shipping 36 bucks. wow!
Cons: None so for
Other Thoughts: setup was a BREEZE. hooked everything up, logged in, changed access passwords, set up the 802.11n wifi and locked it down. It shall serve my media center well, with my computers communicating locally (super helpful)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Wonderful, high resolution gives me lovely screen real estate.
-Works with PS3 (have yet, though, to test HDMI connection, have been using HDMI to DVI for now)
-Slim, much more so than my last monitor, the HP2009m
-LIGHT. WOW, my last monitor was 13 pounds! i thought that was average (stupid me), this is only 9 and is WAY less strain on my monitor mound arm, its great.
-easy setup, plug n' play
-thin border. The hp2009, had a thick border of the screen that, in retrospect, kind of distracted from the beauty of the display itself. this is more noticable
-size. a nice, big yet conservative 21.5 inches. last was 20, so it's a step up and still good. I expect my dorm will be the de facto hangout place next year because i have the biggest screen of my friends (for movies and games, aw yes)
-specs. res, refresh rate, aspect ratio (last was a measly 1000:1). Way too good a value for such specs, including less power consumption! DVI, VGA, HDMI, audio input. what more do i need?
Cons: -now THIS ONE IS PERSONAL and just for me: i love glossy screens. don't know why. last one was glossy, this isn't. not favourable, but the pro's outweigh so it's, in the end, not a big deal.
-speakers. last monitor had decent speakers i was willing to rock crysis 2 on off my ps3. this monitor's speakers, by comparison, are abysmal. don't buy it for the speakers, they are worse than my laptop's
Other Thoughts: Shipping was terrific, as expected from newegg. got it a whole day early! I'm using this with an original macbook pro (september 2007) that i've re-purposed as a desktop of sorts (in clamshell mode). This monitor is an amazing addition to my setup, and I look forward to using it daily with my various computer and gaming needs. This was a wonderful value, i couldn't have asked for more. no dead pixels. I'm not giving the rebate a try, i've heard it's too much of a hassel for only ten dollars...
if you're considering this monitor, give it a shot. it's great. thanks ASUS and newegg!
