Pros: DD-WRT support, Gig-E, Dual band, signal is great, even has USB for storage/printer. There are some routers with similar features for less, but this was no hassle to flash, is well made comes with stand/wall mount, and the hardware transmitter and antenna amps make this an excellent option if you need range, or as in my case, have a lot of noise from nearby routers and just need the added power to improve the S/N ratio.
Cons: Not AC but I knew that
Other Thoughts: I have been running DD-WRT for a while on WRT54G family of routers, and knowing this had full support and even a manufacturer supplied version of DD-WRT was nice to know. The provided DD-WRT firmware had all the usual bells and whistles and didn't look to be stripped out, but from looking around I found that some owners had reported disabling WPS does not actually disable WPS in that firmware (a fairly common issue on routers). So I flashed to a recent community build and have been very happy with it so far. Flashing is as simple as flashing any other router which is already running open source firmware.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price - Lets face it, it's a factor, more so if it is a secondary router/AP or as in my case a router for a family member with minimal needs.
Size/design - Small, but has external antennas
UI - Shows much more advanced features than I would normally expect in such an entry level device, would probably be good for some users needing more advanced features.
Cons: None so farREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Roomy, black finish throughout down to screws and clips, front HD audio, and big quite fans. Power, Reset, USB, eSATA, and HD audio all up nice and high. The Rosewill brand has some nice quality. I got this after using a similar case for a build for my parents. It comes with everything you would expect and room for more fans if you have an overclocked beast to cool.
Cons: Odd design for the corners/edges. It is not a bad weight of steel, but somewhat more flimsy due to how the edges are around the screw holes. I mainly notice as mine had been dropped. Seems to have been at the factory as the outer box was fine. Unfortunately the damage was on the side the MOBO screws to and I didn't notice until I went to pull it off to secure the HDD and DVD drives. so I just bent it back as best as I could.
Other con would be the USB hub is USB2, missed that in the description, or I might have looked for another.
Other Thoughts: Still not bad for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
