It powers my world

BYTECC Model POWERCORD-6K 6 ft. 18AWG Power Cord w/ 3 Conductor PC Power Connector - Black

Pros: Doesn't smell. It has a uniform color throughout.

Cons: none

Overall Review: I use this awesome power cord to run my Pentium 2 at 1.21 gigawatts in my Windows ME box. It doesn't even get warm when my system crashes trying to run my antivirus. Sweet. Newegg ROCKS!

Most Critical Review

No fix for WPS bruteforce hack.

Linksys E2500-RM Advanced Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
Linksys E2500-RM Advanced Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: As a router it works fine.

Cons: Linksys has yet to release new firmware that allows you to turn off WPS to prevent a bruteforce attack.

Overall Review: All of the other current Linksys routers have new firmware that fixes this problem. But not the E2500. This is absolutely ridiculous that Linksys has not patched a security flaw that was dicovered 5 months ago.

It's all good with the latest firmware.

Pros: Dual band, gigabit ethernet ports, seperate wifi for guests that does not allow them in my network, easy to setup.

Cons: none.

Overall Review: The latest firmware (Ver.1.1.39.145204) takes care of all of the earlier bugs with this router including having to create an online account to setup the router. Just log into the router through the browser based GUI (192.168.1.1) and set it up like the older routers. Easy Peasy.

not bad
