Pros: It is running alot of my components right now, and its doing a great job with them. I have a SLI setup with 2 gtx550 ti's an unlocked quadcore cpu b60 overclocked, a blu ray drive, ssd and a hard drive with 16 Gb of ram AND never had stability issues. Amazing deal and also an amazing warranty, JUST IN CASE. Don't be defered by other users problems with these, since they can't even explain problems. Remember to use the Wattage/amperage calculator and you should be all set. The PCIe rail is good for stock spec cards. overclocking will cause irratic behavior but in my case i have a ton of stuff hooked up already. Very surprised that was able to overclock the CPU at all. but it runs just fine air cooled with 3 thermaltake thunderblades, running 3.6 GHz with a cooler master N520. I'm so glad this PSU is able to keep my $600 gaming rig running smoothly. Great price and wonderful warranty. Thank you OCZ. Ignore ppl saying its not fully modular. It has the 20/24 pin mobo supply static.

Cons: Needed a mobo 4 pin extension since it was a bottom mount PSU case. Should have thought about that before the build as all PSU's have this problem depending on the size of the case. Not their fault at all.

Overall Review: If anyone is having second thoughts about this PSU then you might want to try it before taking those low ratings from rebates to heart. Remember it takes a calculation of wattage/amperage before. If you don't you will be one of those fools leaving a bad rating.

Great Router- Picky Reviewers

Pros: My family and I get constantly fast connections. After upgrading from a linksys wireless G router to an n150 router I definitely noticed a speed difference with this N750 and its simultaneous bands. Setup is NOT difficult unless you refuse to follow the included instructions. I have 3 desktops with wireless N connected 2 of which can get constant 450mb link speeds and easy 2MB/s downloads. I can get signal across the street through my brick house in the garage and still get 2 bars on my windows based laptops and Ipad, cellphone and everything. I love the fact that I can renew and configure the router without being at home to renew IP and run speed tests for example. I love the network storage that I can use from outside the network to get my work files. Its a great product that is EASY to install like every consumer based wireless router out there. Port forwarding is easy with gaming and I have more than 10 devices connected all day. The reviews about this product that bash it are ridiculous. Although now that wireless AC routers are becoming more dependable I would not buy this router unless you wanted to save some money. Performance increases with newer products still create a good market for $150+ products that have a definite advantage. I did this review since over a year later and all of these negative reviews of people that don't want to use the included disc and complain about setup. Or complain about their difficult and somewhat technical configurations not working should not be reviewing. If you want a full feature set and bigger range flash the router with TOMATO and stop complaining.

Cons: With it's cloud based configuration I'm an unable to get more than 5 devices onto the device priority list with multimedia. So I just have my 360, ps3, brothers laptop, gaming pc, and ipad.

Overall Review: A good buy when on sale but this barely outdated product will always be a big upgrade from your old wireless G or select-able band wireless N products. Best of both worlds and not a big investment. Remember to look into more current products with possible external antenna's if you want a "Performance" router. Until then if your not comfortable with configuring a router, have your networking friend help. That's to all you "old people" ;-)
