WD My Net N750 HD Dual-Band Router - Wireless N, 4x Gigabit LAN Ports, 300Mbps & 450Mbps, Dual-Band 2.4GHz/5GHz, 2x USB 2.0 Ports WDBAJA0000NWT-HESN
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it worked, it worked - I was getting the same speeds on wireless (or thereabout) as I was on my ethernet plugged in directly coming from my DOCSIS 3.0 Motorola surfboard modem.

The software/driver setup and the management tool was intuitive enough to use. I picked this up at a great deal for $50...

Cons: This router started dying spectacularly two weeks ago. I can't get any throughput, either through the ethernet cable coming out of the unit, using it as a bridge, or just through the wi-fi. I don't care about IPv6 or QOS, but if it doesn't work as advertised, it doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: Your customer service is mostly friendly and helpful and the process to get an RMA is easy enough, waiting to have the item shipped to me so that I can get my replacement.

HIS IceQ X Turbo H687QNT1G2M Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fair price, worked great for the games it worked for (IE not games designed with multi-core in mind...)

Cons: With high-end settings on games where this card should work but are specifically multi-core intensive (Skyrim, Bioshock 1&2, GTA4, Fallout: New Vegas, etc..), the card repeatedly and consistently crashes the computer by forcing the monitor into sleep mode and crashing video input because the monitor/video times out. It's a repeated issue that HIS won't deal with and I've talked to their propeitary customer service here in the US (Lexy Pacific) as HIS is an asian company with no offices in the States about this and no help there. Nothing related to heat or bottlenecking with the CPU, it's just a poorly designed card series with a serious flaw. I'm getting a full refund, hopefully.

Other Thoughts: Get a more reviewed and more stable card that is better at the same price.

HIS IceQ X Turbo H687QNT1G2M Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card demolishes my games...in a good way. Everything from New Vegas to Shogun 2: Total War and Dirt 3 and BFBC2 runs like a dream with just completely stellar graphics and stability for my marathon gaming stretches of 4+ hours.

Colors are crisp and the physical card looks dope too. I have a HAF-912 micro atx case (ie. not a big case) and this bad boy fits snugly in there with no fudging necessary, although it is heavy and sags a bit when mounted into its socket and bolted in

Cons: I, too, have gotten a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and lately I've been having my AMD display drivers all of a sudden lagging out every time when I start my computer and start a graphics program from Firefox to my games, freezing the screen to black for a couple of seconds, then restarting my monitor, telling me that it has prevented a hard-restart for my computer.

I don't know if this is what other people experienced and if it has anything to do with heat (because I have 4 120mm fans in my rig) and the heat temps remain pretty normal across the board for me when I check.

I will re-write if anything changes.
