ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Solid, reliable, mid-priced dual-band router.

I needed something dual-band (5ghz) to deal with the 30+ wireless networks in my apartment building. Prior to getting this router I could I could not stream video off my Qnap TS-212 NAS to my Roku, Chromebox or iPad or even other streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix without lots of buffering even though the distance to the router was less than 30 feet away from the devices.

After buying this and switching all compatible devices to the 5ghz frequency I have had no issues with connection quality and video streaming. It also helps that there are no other 5ghz networks I can pick up from my apartment vs the 30+ in the 2.4ghz range.

I previously owned an Asus RT-N16 which worked great until I moved into my new apartment and discovered the civil war of wifi networks. Do yourself a favor and get a dual-band router like this if you live in a high-density building with lots of networks and have problems streaming or keeping a good connection.

This is a great router you can upgrade to Tomato WRT and I believe DD-WRT but I haven't seen a need to as the stock firmware works fine. No need to buy a fancy AC router since most devices don't even support AC yet (wait for prices to come down on the AC routers).

Cons: Dual-band range (5ghz) leaves something to be desired. I live in a 2-bed apartment with the router in one bedroom. I do not get full signal on the 5ghz frequency in the other room. It's fast enough for my purposes and I don't have real issues given my small apartment but in a larger home I would see this as a problem (i.e. rooms further out or between floors). If you have a bigger place and want a stronger 5ghz signal you may want to go for a higher-end model.

Other Thoughts: No real complaints. I've had good luck with Asus routers and like the flexibility of loading Tomato WRT and DD-WRT.

PNY Optima Pro 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model P-SDHC16G6-DVDC

5 out of 5 eggs Good all around card for SLR 10/31/2010

This review is from: PNY Optima Pro 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model P-SDHC16G6-DVDC

Pros: Good read/write speeds. Using in my Sony SLT-A55V camera. 10fps burst mode works great up to around 20 continuous frames then the write speed falls off sharply. Worse when shooting RAW vs JPEG obviously but still very acceptable. No problems shooting HD video. Smooth with no errors.

Cons: Price including shipping is significantly higher than other similar class 6 16gb memory. Seems worth the tradeoff though since people seem to have problems like DOA units.
