Pros: Strong signal,DD WRT great,looks good.
Cons: Used the loaded Buffalo DD WRT version and after 2 days started loosing WAN IP. I knew this was the routers problem because the router I had prior for 5 years lost the IP only when I has power failures. I adjusted settings and walla over night it lost WAN IP. Downgraded firmware to the User Friendly version only to have the router lose the IP midstream during a Netflix movie! H*ly Moley! Online noticed there are truly large issues with this router losing it's WAN IP. I tried all the fixes people recommended online to no avail.
Overall Review: Was going to RMA but had idea that since my old ASUS G could hold the IP like a rock and was fast enough I could turn the Buffalo into a wireless switch getting the IP's from the ASUS. Turned off DHCP,LAN outside the ASUS IP range and gave it a unique SSID and walla SOLID as a rock and broadcasting N for me. Actually I kept the ASUS radio on and have 2 wireless routers covering the house. Too bad I had to do the workaround but for 41 bucks it cost as much as a switch and I get some firewalling and a radio.
Very simple to use and put together
Pros: Easy put together.Really now guys what's the talk about the stupid LED? I can see it and it's blue!
Cons: The switch is dumb, it will eventually not work. Thankfully I am just using it for a once a month unplugged backup drive. I keep the switch on and plug in the power and go...
Overall Review: Had an old 160 Maxtor IDE laying around and need a photo/video backup. For a few Newegg bucks this does the job!

Pros: Solid router, good speeds.What I really got sick of was the LCD, why they did this I do not know. Hello Trendnet, most normal people will use the GUI-OK? What I did was take it apart and pull the connector ribbon on the LCD screen. Problem solved.
Overall Review: DD-WRT a must on this router see thread on DD WRT website. Very fast router with a D Link 825 clone chipset.
One great camera-Thanx NewEgg
Pros: Shoot my kids soccer games, no problems using TV mode with shutter speeds to 1/1600. Iso 800. Both lenses are IS and work well. The NFL coupon works with no problem. Got some Seahawk hats and shirts. The 4 GB card and HDMI are fine for this setup.
Cons: None-I have experience for an amateur photographer and this kit is awesome for the price. Join Newegg club they send out coupons!
Overall Review: The system is light, the lenses of old being heavy are gone. I bought a couple UV filter/protectors for the lenses and have a backup 8GB card class 7 for some HD movies that work well with this camera. No problems. I shoot everything at 15MP even though it's overkill.
A solid player for entry level...
Pros: I have bought products from Newegg for close to a decade but did not buy it here,sorry New. I did get it at a local store in my area the weekend before Christmas for just under a hundred bucks. For that price, since it retailed in March for three hundred it cannot be beat. Here's what I know after lots of research, DO NOT PERFORM THE FIRMWARE UPGRADE. Just be happy with what you get. Many people have had problems with the software. Also the reviews and I concur say that it has some of the fastest loading times out there. This is the next generation Samsung and it performs on all disc platforms well. Just don't spend a lot for it.
Cons: Door in front is hokey
Overall Review: Works well as is.
