ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server (top performance review at
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast when it works. Reliable when linked with up to 8 devices.

Cons: More than 8 devices results in having to do regular reboots, and even then, it's not certain that it works. Runs a little hot.

Other Thoughts: Maybe they should have put in a bit more ventilation holes for better reliability, combined with a nice beefy heatsink. Install the custom firmware if you want to expand its capability--but if it has a hard enough time handling multiple devices at the same time, would you really want to give it even more workload?

D-Link GO-SW-5GE 5-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch, Metal Case

This review is from: D-Link GO-SW-5GE 5-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch, Metal Case

Pros: Doesn't seem to throttle traffic like some of the earlier switches by D-Link. Sturdy metal box. Extremely compact. Reasonably priced. Has holes at bottom so you can mount it on the wall.

Cons: TrendNET's box is higher quality, even if it is a bit bigger. Metal box has rough edges that may cut fingers. Only one set of LED per port--not that it doesn't do what it needs to do, so it's not a big issue.

Other Thoughts: Power supply's warranty is 1 year, even though the switch's warranty is 3 years. It's extremely weird. Power port for the switch is on the left side as opposed to the back to make the box smaller, which is weird to me. Only tested with gigabit connection, and for that, it seems to work very well. The D-Link GO brand is quirky as well. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this box unless it undercuts TrendNET's price (which it did when I bought it.)

Fractal Design Core 1000 FD-CA-CORE-1000-USB3-BL Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Great case--if the price is right 08/14/2013

This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 FD-CA-CORE-1000-USB3-BL Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Good, simple design; small; cheap; vibration reducing feet; nicely painted in black.

Cons: Small; cheap; cardboard box it came in may be more sturdy than the case; LED too bright; buttons on the side of the case; overenthusiastically tightened thumbscrews make the toolless part of the case case anything but.

Other Thoughts: This is about the smallest case you can get without resorting to non-standard ATX PSU. I haven't had this much challenge in putting in a full-size mATX motherboard; the clearance for it was ridiculously small. It is as flimsy as other people have said--my door came dented. You also can't do any kind of cable management, even if you think you can. But all the holes match, everything fits as it should, and no parts are missing. It's a great, cheap case, something you should get when money is a great object and you're willing to sacrifice the thickness of the case and cable management for price and exterior aesthetics.

I've got this for $16 after rebate. I would've knocked off at least two eggs if it was $30 like it normally goes.
