ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: *Rocks at high bandwidth capabilities.
*Has connected up to 25 devices at one time for me without a serious performance hit.
*Has capabilities for multiple wireless networks with their own SSIDs with the option of keeping the networks separate or able to connect devices between them. (Basic industry level BSS/ESS/SSID Technology).
*Good size.
*Sleek and pretty design makes it nice to display.

I have owned this router for nearly two years and have not experienced a single issue. I even installed the wrong firmware update and broke it myself only to find out that the recovery instructions were easy to follow and made it a simple fix. ASUS really did it this time. I never knew they made home routers, and now I know they do it well. I've always trusted ASUS since I started in the tech industry and they have yet to let me down.

Cons: *QoS doesn't really work on low bandwidth networks. I would not recommend using it unless you have at least a 5mbsp connection but that isn't really ASUS's fault, it is the ISP's. The router is really meant to be in a small business with high bandwidth anyways.

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2765-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet when Idle, runs most games alone like Metro Last Light and Skyrim on max settings with no hiccups, came with EVGA stickers and seal to make your case look official. The card performs well and the benchmark software that came with the card put it at about 30-40 FPS, which isn't bad. Might get a matching one to SLI them together. Came with free games durring the nVidia Holiday Promo which is always a plus. Comes with overclocking software if your into using it, I just use the basic settings.

Cons: The only cons that I can think of is something that doesn't really bother me as much but may bother others is that the fans dynamically change speed and when it is really working it can sometimes sound pretty loud but not unbearable. It isn't like it is really avoidable, though. If you want good quality, it's going to need good cooling.

Another con I've found is more of nVidia's fault. As of this comment I wouldn't say all the kinks are worked out in the drivers. I've had it crash a few times and a couple times it even asked me to lower my OS graphical settings to increase performance. A simple reinstall fixed it which some of the software that comes with the card makes that an easy click or two.

Other then that, no cons yet.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's not a bad card at all. It's comparable to the cards that are in the PS4 and Xbox One. It was definitely a good choice in upgrading and it was a good price to boot.

Creative Labs GH0100 Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Student in Networking Administration 04/27/2013

This review is from: Creative Labs GH0100 Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset

Pros: Beautiful headset in how it looks, how it sounds and how it performs. This being my first real gaming headset with an audio enhancement blew my mind with the difference in sound quality. The THX software you can download for the headset from the creative site was easy to use and even came with an audio test video from The Lich King expansion from WoW which performed a perfect test subject.

Cons: Like most USB wireless headsets, the UBS stick for the headset is somewhat long. Running on a desktop is no problem, but running on a laptop for travel puts the device at a severe risk of total failure since you can't just use a 3.5 connection as a backup. That is what happened to me, at least. I tried to contact the help desk to just receive another USB piece but I just got an email about a month later telling me that they got my request and then another month later saying that the only way to get another is if I mail a check in of about 40 dollars (with tax) and waited for them to mail me the piece. I haven't dealt with a lot of help desk purchases, but never have I received instruction that said I could only purchase with a check. Needless to say I didn't do it anyways because I only payed about $80 for the headset on sale.

Another point is that the battery seemed somewhat buggy. It would either not hold a charge despite being plugged in all night, or seem to register it was plugged in. This happened at around three to four months after owning the device. Other than that, no complaints.

Other Thoughts: Over all, if you are looking for a decently priced headset that performs great for a desktop computer, go with this headset. If you are looking for something durable that you can travel with, I wouldn't trust it since one gentle, accidental uppercut from the guy on the plane beside me shattered the plastic and even cracked the circuit board.
Also know that battery bugs are highly possible.

Some may see it harsh that I rate 3/5, but durability should be something in mind for all products. The design of laptops are partially to blame along with other factors, but I have UBS flash drives that are half the size of this and made of metal that were less then $40.
