This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: It just WORKS. I called Time Warner support when I set up my internet and just gave them the MAC address of this modem and my internet was set up instantly. No extra fees, no waiting for them to schedule an install. No one had to come and intrude into my apartment and I was able to sit around and start surfing the internet! I never really lose a connection of the time I had it... I think it's only disconnected me about 2 times, but I live in apartments so it could be anything that causes that.
Cons: Like all other modems and routers, the leds are BRIGHT. I always end up taping them. But on this one, since it has so many holes, it just lights up a whole room. I do not keep this where I sleep, otherwise the constant blinking would have driven me insane.
Other Thoughts: I bought this because I didn't want to have to pay that lame extra fee to time warner when I know I am going to be using their service for years, paying that fee will eventually have cost me more than just buying my own and getting it over with. It cuts a few dollars off my bill every month.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-R 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Red LED
Pros: I've had this thing for a long time now and I have written a review -- I just wanted to say that it is still working strong! Still quiet also! I might get another one for another build.
Other Thoughts: I have the Azza Solano case and I was unable to put in a side fan because the one that it comes with is 30mm tall so I couldn't have a side fan if I had this Zalman cooler in it. I ended up getting an AeroCool Silent Master 200mm fan since that one is about 20mm tall. It's not the same size as the original fan so instead of screwing it in I ended up gluing it to the side of the case with epoxy glue that way I could get more air in and now it cools my CPU about 1 to 2 degrees more... It's not a big difference but at least I have a completed case with a side fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the times I used it, It was nice and I liked that it had an adjustable antenna
Cons: It would overheat and after heavy usage and it would just stop working until it cooled down. I had a smaller one from a different brand that did the same thing. I ended up having to buy an expensive Linksys adapter but I stopped having connection issues.READ FULL REVIEW
