Pros: um, the clear CMOS button was easy to access...
Cons: .. which was helpful because it wouldn't boot up any other way. Tried flashing the BIOS; didn't help.
Tried RMAing, and ASUS just sent the same board back, and it does the same thing. Now of course (due to RMA) it's outside the 30 day Newegg window, and they refuse to do anything.
Other Thoughts: Stuck with a $275 dollar paperweight and Newegg/Asus refuse to do anything about it.
Oh, and an MSI X99 Raider worked fine, so the issue was definitely the board.
Pros: Great speed and range.*
Cons: *When it works. It regularly drops a connection, even through the ethernet ports. I have a couple computers hardwired to it, and it'll download at ~1.5mbs(my isp max) for several minutes, then drop to 0 for a few seconds before ramping back up to full speed. As another mentioned, It's almost as if it resets the router internally, and it has to re-establish connections. Same thing on the wireless.
Other Thoughts: I'm planning on talking to netgear, and if I can't get it resolved through them, I'll try dd-wrt. It's apparently a common problem, and supposedly dd-wrt solves it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Xerox Phaser 6010/N 600 x 600 dpi USB Color Laser Printer
Pros: Suprisingly good color. I was expecting good document, but poor photo. Don't get me wrong, the photos aren't great, but passable for such a cheap printer. It works well in Linux, a major requirement for me.
Cons: The linux drivers are not included by default in Ubuntu 12.04. This usually means the manufacturer is over stingy with the licensing, as I'm sure Ubuntu would rather support as printers out of the box as possible. A quick google solved that though.
The toner on the color cartridges ran out alarmingly fast for a laser printer. They aren't very big, so maybe that's normal. I've experienced printers before that only provide a starter ink cartridge out of the box, but last longer on full-price replacements. Hopefully that's the case here, or else I'll be pretty disappointed in the toner life. And the toner doesn't appear to be cheap!
Other Thoughts: Decent printer, decent speed, not overly fast, but decent. I only hope the replacement toner I have on order lasts longer.READ FULL REVIEW
