This review is from: Microsoft XBOX Live 12 Month Gold Starter Pack
Pros: Chatpad works great; lighted keys. I've got XL sized hands and the controller with chatpad feels better now for me. The $63 price was decent considering I got both a yr Live membership and the chatpad; 400 Xbox points was a bonus!
Cons: I waited too long to get a chatpad... could have used this for years!!
Other Thoughts: I use either the Xbox Wireless headset or a Turtle Beach headset so I don't use the included wired microphone. It's still sitting in the box unused but it's good for a backup I suppose.
I waited until my last XBL membership was up before ordering this product. Make the most value of your purchase.
Pros: This mobo served me well over 5 years with an Athlon X2 3400+.
Cons: Did not last forever.
Other Thoughts: The board crashes shortly after booting. Upon physical investigation the board capacitors were leaking and all expanded. The mobo and the dual core CPU worked fine for my "test PC" needs, but now I'm forced to upgrade when I didn't want to. Glad I didn't waste a Windows 8 key on this board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Gigabit, simultaneous dual band, external antennas. Ability to flash Tomato and DD-WRT (limited to beta release as of this writing).
Cons: Price! Plugged it in, within an hour my climate controlled room was filled with the smell of burning electronics. Didn't bother to see if anything was working- it's not worth the hassle down the line if components overheated.
Other Thoughts: I sent it in for RMA but Newegg didn't have any in stock. Now I'll watch for a price drop! :)
Router OEMs should just ship with open source firmware out of the box. Save on development costs.
