This review is from: APC BR1300G Back-UPS Pro 1300 VA 10-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Pros: LCD display is informative. When it worked it keep the equipment protected and running during short-term power outages.
Cons: Unit worked for almost 2 years, then just shut itself off completely. It won't even function as a surge protector and/or PDU.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The 6Gb/s SATA ports make a big difference in I/O demanding applications (like gaming). Unfortunately I couldn't take advantage of the SSD caching feature which should increase I/O performance even further.
Everything has run flawlessly for me, and I especially like the easy-to-use EasyTune software for overclocking.
Cons: I didn't have any problems, but the placement of the SATA ports can be an issue if you don't have adequate room in your case. Fortunately I had enough.
My only real complaint was my older CPU cooler didn't match up with the holes in the motherboard so I had to use the stock CPU fan. It didn't occur to me that there isn't one universal hole position for all motherboards.
Other Thoughts: Great board packed with features for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR XETB10GM-100NAS Xbox 360 Internet Connection Kit
Pros: Worked just as advertised. No software to install, just plug each into an electrical outlet and run the included Ethernet cables from each box to the router/console. Connection was solid while playing games and streaming video. I noticed no difference in speed over Xbox Live between this connection and my other Xbox 360 that is hard-wired.
Cons: None whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: I did not test this with anything but my Xbox 360, but I'm confident it would work with any device with an Ethernet port.
This might be stating the obvious, but unlike a wireless network adapter, this does use up an Ethernet port on your router/switch, so be sure you have one free before using this.
