Exactly what I wanted in a tablet

Pros: Extremely fast tablet - and fully replaces my need for a steam box. There are those who do not understand streaming technology. They will rate this not realizing that they need to have high throughput in order to stream high def gaming. I bought a 80 dollar router for the EXACT purpose of making the streaming effective. Because I could read, I was prepared and this tablet performs flawlessly. Additionally, I've had 0 problems with the manufacturing. Pieces do not just chip off a tablet you aren't using and dropping. As one would therefore surmise, I've not had either problem I've seen one or two others who drop their tablets experience.

Cons: Not really much to say here - they should have had all accessories ready to go out of the gate, rather than make us wait a month to have a case for it.

It's lightweight, but that's all I like about it.

Pros: The design is great if you are using a single radiator liquid cooler, or just fans.

Cons: The cable bar is in your way in many configurations or larger pieces of equipment. For some coolers, you have to go really out of your way to try making it to work. To the point where I spent over an hour just trying to make the ignorantly-designed front coolers work with my dual fan radiator. 100% NOT worth it. I regret every second spent with this.

Overall Review: Absolutely not, if you are using a water cooler with a dual radiator. Only works well with some of them. Look around to find people who have the one you are testing against. I have hated every minute working with the ones I got, and I stupidly bought two.

Very easy to setup and is a great deal

Pros: Pretty light! Gets very loud, you won't need speakers Relatively quick setup Software is not too slow

Overall Review: Very much worth the money, and great as a secondary TV or a TV to use in a room with a lot of background noise.

just dandy

Pros: Support at newegg was AWESOME. That's the real reason I'm even reviewing.

Overall Review: Excellent, especially when a promotion is going on.

Terrible performance

Pros: The web interface is well organized, but every change requires a very lengthy reboot process, so you will spend a lot of time looking at the loading/wait screens (which at least are pretty and informative).

Cons: Unbelievably poor performance. I did a number of speed tests while connected by cable directly to the router. It took my 30MB download speed and turned it to about 2MB. Testing with my Cisco E3000, and I got 28MB. IT has incredibly long boot times, horrible service, only on-par bar strength, and a very - VERY slow - processing of changes to the setup. Furthermore, the automatic update-check does not work (it says it has latest version when it does not), and saving your config for a later reload also does not save your settings completely. Some things will be restored, but most is not. This is an unbelievable terrible router that D-link should be ashamed they produced, and NewEgg should remove from its list of products.

Overall Review: I owned the first generation gaming router from D-link and it worked very well for about 5 years. My Cisco E-3000 was reliable the first year before it started becoming hit or miss. this, however, can't make it 5 minutes without proving it is inferior in every way.

Great Card!

EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Outperforms my TX480 in most tests, runs comparatively quiet (compared to my 480, that is), and handles whatever I throw at it.

Cons: I mention this only because it did happen to me - my first card was only partially functional - it crashed the whole system after about 5 minutes of gaming, no matter what I did with the GPU speed ( I even underclocked it!). EVGA, however, responded to my support request very quickly (4AM!!) and the exchange process was pretty painless. you wait a little longer for the RMA approval process, but even that wasn't more than a day and a half. The new card came in perfect condition and works flawlessly, so I'll continue to use EVGA for all my card purchases - they are the best IMHO.

Overall Review: Don't let the fact that I had a dud first dissuade you from getting a great card from a great company. it was worth the minor hassle, and I am absolutely confident I was in the minority with the issue I was having with the first one.
