Great product.10/5/2016 12:58:46 PM

Pros: -Easy setup -Reliable -USB 3.0 -Able to slave 6TB off this (WOW!!)

Cons: -Cannot DD-WRT without losing features -Kinda ugly?

Overall Review: Got this on a deal....paid only $45. Slick deal!!! I intended on loading DD-WRT, but after reading many reviews that stated I would lose options. I stuck with the base firmware. Base firmware isn't bad. Very basic. Anybody with half a brain can set this up. No instructions needed. I seriously didn't think I would be able to slave a huge 6TB drive off this, but it works lady's and gents. Works great. Transfer speeds are good. No longer get buffer issues when watching media from this drive. Very fast. Especially when paired with an AC wireless device. Transfer speeds to my 6TB drive are fast. Faster than what I had, so I'm very happy. It's not LAN quick...or wireless to wireless quick, but it's good for me. I think their may be a bottleneck going from wireless to USB. But it was at least 4x faster than what I was used to, so I'm very happy with its performance.

UPDATED REVIEW8/12/2015 6:17:48 AM

Pros: Price Performance Apple print Duplex Low cost of toner

Cons: Firmware buggy - please read other throughts

Overall Review: This is a great monochrome printer for the money. With extras like Apple Print, duplexing, wireless, it's a slam dunk. MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE THE FIRMWARE. I was on 1.07 for a while and performance was very spotty. It would go into a deep sleep when my iOS devices and computer would not see it at all. I took a look at a few things, everything seemed set up correctly. It was after I updated to the latest firmware that the unit was working perfectly. Now all my iOS devices and Windows laptops can see the unit ALL OF THE TIME.

DD-WRT8/12/2015 6:10:22 AM

Pros: DD-WRT compatible Fast unit Good USB speeds - about 4MB/s $ - cheap money

Cons: Big unit. Really big. USB 2.0

Overall Review: Didn't bother with the factory installed OS, was able to flash to R4500 then flash DD-WRT. Solid unit. Been up for several months without issue. Slaving a 2TB drive for data. Transfer speeds are way better than my old Linksys e3200.

Wow, Nice.8/12/2015 6:06:02 AM

Pros: Small form factor USB 3.0 100MB/s + reads Price - $12 Solid metal construction

Cons: Write speeds about 16MB/s, meh. As advertised though.

Overall Review: I absolutely love this USB thumbdrive. I thought for sure it would be bigger, like about the size of a pack of gum. Not the case. It's way smaller. It's about as wide as a popsicle stick and about two inches long. Super compact. The solid metal construction is EXCELLENT. I have no doubt this will last a while on my keychain. I've been buying Kingston SSD's for a while, and have never had any problems with them. I don't expect any issues with this drive. Will update in a few months.

Excellent card!6/2/2015 8:01:15 AM

Pros: Single card solution Up to date drivers Two AAA game bundle Low wattage draw High performance Dual 100mm fans Quiet operation Nvidia 3D Ready for my Viewsonic 3D 120hz display

Cons: Ice cream not included

Overall Review: Bought this to replace my dual AMD 7870 (Tahiti LE) Crossfire setup. The nail in the coffin for my Crossfire setup was Project Cars, as I could not get the game to run properly with my dual card setup. AMD drivers were the culprit. The developer and AMD were finger pointing. That was it. I was gone. Was an Nvidia guy in the past, I'm back on team green. When I saw the AAA game bundle included for free, and the special price, that was the clincher. I figure I could sell my 7870's and recoup some of my expense. The card has equivalent or better performance, in some cases, to my old Crossfire setup, but draws about 1/3 to 1/4 the power. My old setup was pulling nearly 500W of power, this new card is pulling about 150W and puts out the same or better frame rates. Amazing. I haven't found one game that is giving me a problem. GRID (all games) looks amazing at 120hz Bioshock Inifite looks amazing Crysis 3, my fav, looks AMAZING The Witcher 3 looks amazing Everything looks AMAZING. Other nice feature I got back was Nvidia 3D, which is compatible with my 120hz Viewsonic 3D monitor. I have the Nvidia 3D glasses. It works great. Glad to have it back. Some of the games are amazing looking in 3D. Very happy I pulled the trigger. Happy with the AAA games. Super happy with the performance of this card. No regrets.

Awesome deal1/23/2015 7:47:18 AM

Pros: Got a deal too good to resist. $206 after using BITCOIN coupon, $25 Amex offer, sold off the Assassins' Creed games on auction site. Slick! As far as the system is concerned. Great controller. Much faster than XBOX 360. Better graphics. XBOX LIVE. Exclusive games are really good.

Cons: - 3rd party titles tend to be better on PS4 - Don't stack anything on top, it's main exhaust is through the top right portion of the console - online play is not free

Overall Review: Overall, very satisfied with my purchase and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Great board6/25/2014 6:00:26 AM

Pros: All the video outputs you will ever need. 4K compatible. Easy EUFI BIOS

Cons: shipped with bad BIOS, was creating this weird digital sound through the speakers. I upgraded to the latest BIOS and this resolved the issue. Phew...no RMA!

Overall Review: Just a great value. Worked out perfectly. Would buy again in a heartbeat. Probably the 4th or 5th Gigabyte board I've used. Good stuff.

Great cameras6/25/2014 5:51:06 AM

Pros: Very small. Work great in the dark. Web interface is easy to use and understand. MyDlink portal works great. Can talk to the cameras from anywhere with a smartphone app. Price for two was unbeatable.

Cons: Resolution, wishing it were better. You get what you pay for. But it was decent. Java implementation is a pain. You need to make sure Java is up to date and enabled on your PC. But still quirky.

Overall Review: Make sure you update to the latest firmware. Camera can be very sensitive to motion. The higher the sensitivity, the more emails you will receive. It can literally blast out 100's of emails. You might want to know your stuff before you try to mess with this camera. You'll need to figure out your SMTP settings, IP information, wireless info...it's not for the faint of heart.

Love this stuff!!3/29/2014 4:25:01 PM

Pros: This stuff cannot be beat when building a super quiet rig. Recently used this stuff on my brothers new build. I bought a lower end case w/PSU. It was an all steel case, which sound like a tin can sometimes. Just tap on the outside of one of these cheap cases, the sound just sends chills down my spine I can't stand it. But after lining nearly the whole interior of the case with this stuff, the tin hollow sound is easily defeated. Instead of a "tink" sound, it's more of a "thud" sound now. Feels like a solid build now. The kit comes with two very large sheets that was enough for me to line up a standard ATX case. I cut the stuff up to my liking and lined up nearly the entire interior of this case.

Cons: It can be a bit smelly, but it dissipates after some time. Not bad enough to take an egg away

Overall Review: I swear by this stuff. You want to do a quality build, use it!

Nice case, great price3/29/2014 3:47:53 PM

Pros: Good solid case. Run of the mill stuff. I paid like $65 shipped. Nice to have a 500W PSU, just in case. Had all the necessary power connectors to connect a Haswell CPU and Gigabyte H81 mobo. Love the USB 3.0 ports in the front. It's a decent case for the money. Nice 120mm case fan.

Cons: 120mm case fan is not a four prong type. It's the standard three pin connector, single speed type. This really shouldn't be a knock against them, but a four pin variable fan would have been nicer.

Overall Review: Lined the interior of the case with soundproofing material. This killed that hollow tin sound that you can have with these big cases that have nearly nothing in them, given the small amount of components you actually install.

Industry standard, easy to use.3/29/2014 3:39:24 PM

Pros: It's easy to use. Hell, if I had enough brain power, I would do my taxes the hard way, by hand. Unfortunately, I need an easy to use interface like Turbo Tax to do my taxes. Sad.

Cons: None.

Great stuff3/29/2014 3:37:04 PM

Pros: Love the feel of this keyboard. Have been a Microsoft Natural Keyboard fan from way back in the day. I had a Logitech Gaming keyboard that was very boring. Sure it had the lights and all, but it was a straight up keyboard. This new Microsoft Sculpt keyboard and mouse feel amazing. I love the fact that you can tilt up the front of the keyboard and rest your palms on the soft touch rubber surface. Feels very comfortable. The keys have a nice soft sound to them. Not overly clicky but have decent feedback. The mouse is pretty standard. Feels very nice and has excellent tactile feedback. Both devices feel of high quality. Great stuff.

Cons: No cons to speak of. Microsoft has always made top of the line hardware products.

Overall Review: The rubber palm rest is removable. For an even smaller footprint. I like the palm rest, so it stays.

UPDATE4/12/2013 6:11:15 AM

Pros: In order to overclock this card, make sure you go into your Catalyst Control Center and set the power level to +20%. This is when the fun starts. By simply sliding this up I gained 6FPS at stock speed, from 48FPS to 54FPS in DiRT Showdown at 1920x1080 with everything turned up, VSYNC OFF. I then started to overclock the card. I got all the way to 1230MHz...I decided to stop, so as to not damage the card. The returns were starting to diminish. I didn't see much improvement. Not enough to burn out the card. Same with VRAM, increasing the speed didn't garner me anything worth writing about. Also, the VRAM doesn't have heat spreaders or anything, they're just exposed. I left the VRAM at 1500MHz. At 1230MHz, I was seeing 59.66 FPS (avg). This is 7950 performance for $100 less. But at 1175MHz, I was seeing 59.22(avg), so I laid it back to 1175MHz. Kept the VRAM at stock. I did play with overclocking my CPU, but it didn't seem to make much of a difference in the benchmark, which leads to believe the game is a GPU heavy game. The AMD driver is great. This is my first experience with AMD as I've been a long time NVIDIA guy, going back to my Spectra 2500, NVidia Riva TNT. Glad I made the change. How could I go wrong with the price, performance and game bundle. Stellar. Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite and Crysis 3 are AWESOME.

Cons: No heat spreaders on the VRAM. Not a huge fan of the heatsink in general. The fan spins up to about 4000 RPM when at 100%. Yeah, it's loud, as it should be. The heat is spread out throughout the case. I like the GPU's that have that enclosed heatsink design that vents the heat straight out the back of the PCI slot. But, I'm sure their are disadvantages to that as well. I think I may need to redesign my rig, via a new case, to have better ventilation. Yes, this card puts off allot of heat. I saw 83 degrees C at one point. Hot stuff.

Good stuff4/4/2013 5:46:30 AM

Pros: Great price. 80 Plus Gold certification!! <--HUGE! Super efficient. Modular. Had an old Antec NeoPower modular 480 power supply that could support my old Palit GTX 460 but could not support my new HD 7870 Tahiti GPU. Prior to the upgrade my rig would reboot when trying to run Crysis 3 or Bioshock Inifinite. So I went and pulled the trigger on this unit. Didn't want to overdue it and get a 750W or 850W and I don't see myself doing any SLI, ever. AMD and Powercolor recommended at least a 500W PSU. But given that I'm going to be overclocking my CPU and GPU, I opted for a little bit more power and a little bit more headroom. This was the best deal around. After upgrade, no reboots. Machine is running super stable. I found the PSU to be adequate for my needs. It was priced right, only $75 after rebate. No tax and free shipping. Can't beat that for an 80 Plus Gold PSU. The build quality is nice. The packaging is nice as well. Definitely feels like a more premium unit. It had all the connections I needed. I liked the coverings on the unused power connectors. I used my Kill-A-Watt meter to see how much power I was actually drawing from the wall. Ran DiRT2, Batman Arkham City and Crysis 3. On all three games, I was pulling less wattage from the wall than with my previous power supply. Case in point...at idle, with my old PSU, I was pulling about 120-160W. With the new PSU, I was pulling between 75-115W. With DiRT2, set at 1920x1080p with VSYNC off and all options turned on, my previous PSU was pulling 360W. The new unit was pulling 300W. For Crysis 3, I was previously pulling 400W and eventually rebooting. With the new PSU, I was pulling about 320W. That's pretty huge. My efficiency has gone from 70% at full load to 90-92% at full load. Over a four year period, this unit will actually pay for itself.

Cons: I would have liked it if the power connectors on the PSU were labeled specifying which are to be used for accessories or PCI-E. None were labeled. So I didn't worry too much about it and went ahead and plugged in to whatever port was available. Not really a con, but, each PCI-E cable has two 6x2 connectors on it. I was tempted to use a single cable for both 6x2 connectors on my GPU. But after thinking about it, I decided to use both cables and tuck the additional power connectors into a cubby inside my case. I was afraid too much power would be carried via this single cable and could possibly cause an issue, possibly heat up or melt. So, better to air on the safe side, I used both PCI-E cables.

Nice, but tight2/27/2012 11:53:53 AM

Pros: I'm coming from a Xigmatek SD-1283. Very similar. More heatpipes on this unit. Very inexpensive. Decent results. Reaching about 60 degrees Celsius. My mobo reports less, but Core Temp is reporting higher temps. I can live with this. i7-2600K CPU.

Cons: Tight fit on an Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen 3 board. Installed, with fan, would hit my Patriot Viper Extreme memory modules. Very tight fit. Luckily, I just moved the modules down one slot. 8GB is fine for now. But very tight fit.

Overall Review: Instruction sheet a little iffy, just pictures.

Cool addition2/27/2012 11:34:46 AM

Pros: This adapter has the newer USB 3.0 header for your motherboard, granted you have one. All I really needed was the bracket that would accommodate the USB 3.0 adapter that comes with the Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3. This bracket works with that adapter. It's literally the same adapter, beside the coloring of the header. I went with the Asus one myself. Asus gets $40 for that front panel box. I bought this one a week ago for $11.99 shipped.

Cons: I wish they would just sell the header part for no more than $5. It's just a piece of metal! As far as the price increase goes, crazy.

Overall Review: It worked fine. No problems.

Impressed1/29/2012 5:33:59 PM

Pros: I bought this for $59.99 shipped. Was not expecting this quality for this kind of money. I have been very happy with this unit. Setup took about 20 minutes. Did not use the disk, went HTTP straight into it. Updated to the latest firmware, setup both wireless bands, setup the USB drive and BOOM, done. Now I have a 750GB cloud in my own house. The Cisco firmware is basic, solid and works. I've decided to run stock, since it does what I need. Streaming MKV to my jailbroken Apple TV using aTV Flash. Works like a charm. Could not be more pleased. The option to go SMB, FTP or UPNP is great. Running SMB myself. Also, no need to format your external drive, this router supports NTFS. Just make sure your router is shut off before you plug the drive into it. PS..You don't need the CD to set it up. Yes, it says it on the router sticker, but it's just not true. Like most home routers, you can just get your gateway address via ipconfig and punch that gateway address into your browser.

Cons: It can get hot, on the bottom. The top stays relatively lukewarm. I suppose you could remedy this by making some sort of riser for it. If I only had six popsicle sticks, that would make a perfect riser for this. I might just get some sort of desk shelf thingy. One con I have definitely noticed, the size. This thing is huge. And there is no option to sit it vertically. Only horizontally, taking up much space. I mean, c'mon Cisco, get with it, everybody offers a vertical stand. It's the norm these days. Would prefer USB 3.0 port. But I guess that will be on the next series they launch. Maybe. Would like the option to auto reboot at night and track my data usage, like with DD-WRT, but since the stock firmware is working well, I'm leaving it alone.

Overall Review: I previously ran a Netgear WNR2000v2 with DD-WRT loaded on it. Ran like a tank. But wanted to replace it as streaming to my Apple TV was not working so well. Something on my network was dropping speeds down to 54G. This is the reason for getting the Dual Band. I initially bought a Buffalo Tech WZR dual band router. Came preloaded with DD-WRT. Unfortunately the USB only shared via FTP. Plus it was $100 bucks. I bought the E3000 for $59.99, not expecting much for that price. But surprisingly, even with stock firmware, I was very pleased with its out of box features and performance.

Wee bit frustrating to install...8/13/2009 1:04:53 PM

Pros: Price. N flavor.

Cons: Blew 45 minutes because some stupid feature called WPS was on by default. I believe WPS was the acronym, I can't remember. WPS has something to do with easy secure installation. I kept being prompted for username, password and domain info from my Vista clients. I had to shut it off to go 10-bit standard WEP. BUT, I had NO CLUE it was on, till I found it.

Overall Review: I payed $29.99....I can't complain. It was dirt cheap and my brother is happy with the results.

Just OK. Nothing to write home about.8/13/2009 12:56:53 PM

Pros: Excellent price. Good update tool. Was able to update to the latest map using the update tool, Tom Tom Home. Went from 7.5 to 8.3, which is almost a version and a half. Option to shut off screen while driving between turns. It will then turn on before upcoming turn. Neat.

Cons: Meh. The Tom Tom's user interface and graphics look outdated, just not as sharp or modern looking as the bottom line Garmin. Graphics are sub par. Low res. 8-Bit color?. Speaker is a bit tinny sounding. The on button feels like it will eventually sink in and stop working. The mount, although clever, is very stiff...it will give you a workout. I wish it would automatically shut off after you get to your destination, ie; no movement for a designated time should trigger auto shut off. Menu can sometimes be confusing.

Overall Review: I've owned several Garmin's (i3 and Nuvi 200) and have become extremely comfortable with the Garmin user interface, probably the best on the market. I also had some brief experience with Magellan, which I quickly took back to the store I bought it from. For the most part, it's just a plane jane GPS. And for $49.99 after rebate, how can you complain?

Solid multiplayer game6/19/2009 9:06:14 AM

Pros: This is a great multiplayer game. There is NO single player game here. This works on Playstation Networks FREE online play. Maps are good. Action is great. Very addictive.

Cons: The only con would be boneheads you run into online. People can be really immature sometimes. But you will find that everywhere including XBOX Live.

Overall Review: For $15.99, it's a STEAL.

Good stuff...4/7/2009 7:40:06 AM

Pros: Cheapest price on the net...used a special 20% off coup. Sweet!

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Haven't used it yet...still have about 50% left in my stock cartridge that came with the 2170W. I LOVE THIS PRINTER!! Just a great, every day use style printer. Beats my HP all in one. I haven't used my inkjet in months, no need to, 99% of my printing is just informational, which doesn't need colors.

Pros: Cheap. Great price. Replaced my stock 1GB module in my HP NC2400. Laptop had no problem with the RAM, even though this ram is rated at a higher speed. Both modules were 1.8V, 200 pin, SODIMM, one is just rated to run at a higher speed. Worked fine.

Cons: Packaging....hate blister packs.

Finally..4/7/2009 7:32:50 AM

Pros: HUGE frigging drive. Love it!!! Paired a 300GB VelociRaptor with this drive....I have nearly 2TB's. Sick!!!

Cons: Ghost 8.0 doesn't recognize it. Too big? I had to download the Maxtor tool to image my old drive onto this drive. No problem, worked like a charm.

Overall Review: Outside of the terrible RMA process that I needed to do for the first damaged drive, the second one came through with no problems and is an amazing drive.
