Pros: Great features, good interface. It has held up well over the past 5 years.
Cons: No new firmware. This router could have a lot more life in it if Dlink had decided to continue supporting their product.
Recently the router has been dropping signal. I had read some fixes from other uses and go to the point that I was turning off all the features I liked, QoS, SPI, mixed mode. With all the features turned off and N only mode, I feel like I have and old Linksys WRT-54G...
Overall Review: Sadly I will be upgrading my router soon. I wouldn't have to if Dlink would have continued support for it's product more than just a handful of years.
Pros: Quick setup. Had a previous model of D-Link so navigating the screens was a sinch. Great features. Best thing is 1gig Lan ports.
Cons: I have only writen one other complaint like this, in the history of my building and buying computers/components... The lights on the front of this bad boy are on the bright side.
Overall Review: Other than the bright light emitting from the front of this awesome router, (which isnt enough to knock an egg off) its perfect.
Pros: Hideaway mic. Inline volume/mic mute controls. Comfortable. Great sound quality. I use for gaming, they work great for any of my FPS and even improve the sound from my MMO's.
Cons: Hot, at first. After you get used to wearing them they dont seem to get hot.
Overall Review: What can I say, they work!
Pros: Works great. I mostly saw stability, something my old modem lacked. Next gen ready for people who's ISP is still running oldergear.
Cons: Not a con for most people but not worth losing an egg over, I keep the modem close to my laptop. The Activity lights can be a bother, rather bright.
Overall Review: Love the modem.
Pros: Solid Keys. I love keyboards that give good feedback, lets me know when I am actually hitting a key. Solid construction. Multi Color backlight helps as a visual aid for which macro sets I am on. Built in audio is awesome.
Cons: Low power usb input is even to low for some top gaming mice out there, but thats not really a con seeing as I dont use the port. "Legs" dont prop the keyboard up very high, again not really a con more of a personal observation of something I didnt like.
Overall Review: Really not any con's about the product itself. Built well and great features. Would recommend for gamers that dont care about LCD screens in their keyboards but are looking for something with alil extra.
Pros: Those that are interested, the thumb rest area as well as other areas on the mouse are textured. Helps to keep control of the mouse during long gaming sessions. On the fly DPI changing helps when going from game to game where mouse speeds vary. Weight tuning is so nice. I can finally customize many aspects of my mouse to fit my gaming style.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Best mouse I have ever owned. Had an MX510, when it died I went with another more standard Logitech mouse, then to the G500. I will never own any other mouse than Logitech.
Pros: It works. Works great! Just slap in a HDD (which can be larger than 1.5 TB as long as its still the 3.5 format or smaller) and your set. Dual connections makes it great for taking it to places without Esata. The fan is quiet, but for a gamer, I don't really noticed much noise anyway.
Cons: I have never written a con like this, but the blue LED's are really bright. For people with light sensitivity, you may want to keep that in mind. But its not really a con seeing as the device does what is says!
Overall Review: Totally recommend this device to anyone wanting a easy fix for external HDD space. Both connections work great.
Pros: 2TB of storage with 7200 rpm, can't beat that. Does what it says, 2TB at 7200 rpm...
Cons: Not a con, more of a DUH kinda thing. After its formatted it will show up as less than 2 TB, something in the neighborhood of 1.8 TB. That is after some conversions... It is 2 TB's of actual storage!
Overall Review: If people don't have a high understanding of bit conversions you will be surprised after you format the drive by the 1.8 TB. Its normal, it really is 2 TB's of space with the bit conversion.
Pros: Works like a charm. Just slips right into my expansion slot. Load some drivers and its good to go. Speed is way better than USB and Firewire.
Cons: Only thing I don't like about the expansion slot is that the device doesn't "Lock" into place, easy to just bump it and slide it out. Not really much of a con because the device WORKS!
Overall Review: Esata or go home!
