This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: Great speeds with this router and easy initial setup for simple Networking, or just setting up Wireless.
Cons: I'm a Networking and Systems Admin and have setup many networks. This is the only Router that I have been unable to successfully setup Port Forwarding for SubSonic. After some research I found that you have to use the Virtual Server Option to forward the incoming traffic to the server behind this Router. This has not worked either.
This is the only Router that I have not been able to successfully set this up with and am considering just cutting my losses and replacing it for this fact alone.
Other Thoughts: All in all if you are wanting a good simple wireless router and don't need to use port forwarding, or the virtual server aspect of this device it will be great for you.
For those of you needing to utilize Port Forwarding or setting up a complex network, stay away from this one.
Pros: This drive has seen a lot from my Desktop and I have not been able to slow it down, installation times of software has been unexpectedly fast.
Once the drive initializes, the boot time is faster than I can input my password. I continuously use this as a staging area for Windows Server 2008 and 2012 machines for testing purposes and this drive has made a substantial difference when running multiple machines.
I actually upgraded from an Corsair Performance 3 Series SATA III and this blows it out of the water.
Cons: Perhaps the Size, I could have used more drive space, but that's my bad for not having bought a larger drive.
Other Thoughts: PCI Solid States have a higher chance of failing completely over time, however I have had mine for roughly 7 months now and it has ran great.

This review is from: MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: SATA 6.0
5 PCI Express2.0 x16
Placement of SATA connector is great for a full sized case, a little cumbersome in the old Mid-sized, but worked.
7 total SATA connections
Very easy to over clock.
Cons: 2nd PCI Express2.0 x16 stopped registering my GeForce 9600 after 5 weeks, not a problem with 5 PCI slots and not needing all of them currently.
Bios is a little hard to get around at first, but you get the hang of it.
