Pros: -Recognized easily by BIOS and OSes (Linux /Windows 2008 R2)
-Performance wise no complains here, it was holding the job nicely for what it meant to do.
-quiet not noisy
Cons: would be nice if shipped at least with sata cable, it came bare naked.
Overall Review: the product is not top of the line don't expect too much, F2 is good for this size, and the speed isn't that wow, 5400 with 32MB Cache is just about doing good job here.
Pros: -Excellent Basic wireless networking option, for small number of devices (<10) it is more than perfect
-Very easy to configure, simple , fast and easy with some deep options to configure firewall, parental, DMZ and gaming
-very reliable so far, well at least for the first week of purchase, hopefully it stands for may be 10 years?
-Range and signal streght is superior
-Built on open source, many options can be unleashed, or customized very practical for public coffee shops
-used it for netflix, big downloads, fast enough, reliable, its piece of hardware you must have for your basic wireless connection
Cons: -big and ugly, still techi
-4xports 10/100 only no 1000 bits but thats all you need for basic networking (internet ISP may not run as that fast)
Overall Review: Great linksys support line, available 24/7, chat/phone no wait times, amazing service,
two thumps up,
Pros: -Sleek design, no antenna
-light weight doesn't occupy much of space
-very simple, easy to configure, yet advanced if you like to, web based administration console, got all simple features needed.
-simple product for simple use, typical house use (internet browsing, family sharing...etc.) but definitely not a good choice for extreme gaming
-Backed up with outstanding customer support team from Linksys, I will definitely buy another Linksys (CISCO) but brand new this time just because of after sale support and great tech team!!
Cons: -arrived dead, however Linksys support was outstanding, they tried everything to help with the situation in timely fashion, but the product was "refurbished" and is expected to easily skip the QA and finds its way to the customer.
Overall Review: Although it was refurbished unit, however its defect was intermitted, that makes it easy to bypass QA team and finds its way to the customer, but I have to admit the customer support in Linksys was outstanding, and provided help and courtesy, it is simple by all means, and great if it works!!!
Pros: -Super function BIOS, did unlocking to my AMD Phenom II X2 545 to unleash all of its 4 cores,
System is very stable , haven't tried OC yet. but BIOS has lots to offer
This MB is a real toy to the pros, I like it, it spoiled me!
Cons: the 2 RAM sims is quite a limitation, I've loaded it with 4GB each (total 8GB) which is the max capacity of the motherboard.
for it's category this is just about ok.
Did not have good support to "Linux"
Overall Review: Motherboard came with a CD full of drivers, the manufacturer probably tried to ignore Linux somehow!
