Most Favorable Review

Great value switch

NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch (GS605NA)
NETGEAR 5-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch (GS605NA)

Pros: Nice size with an attractive case. Has a quality feel to it. Can position vetically or horizontal. Worked out of the box just as it should. Great value for the dollar.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I've bought 5 of these switches to deal with single internet drops in each office. Best value on a gig switch going and newegg has the best price.

Most Critical Review

Needed Dual WAN router

D-Link DI-LB604 Load Balancing Router 2 x 10/100Mbps WAN Ports 4 x 10/100Mbps LAN Ports
D-Link DI-LB604 Load Balancing Router 2 x 10/100Mbps WAN Ports 4 x 10/100Mbps LAN Ports

Pros: Nice features for the price. Lowest cost Dual WAN I could find.

Cons: Didn't work out of the box. DLink makes me pay to ship back the brand new defective product. Newegg won't give refund or handle RMA - must go through Manu.

Overall Review: Router was not functional out of the box. D-Link tech support was top notch though (hence the 3 stars). Spoke good english (actually in the US if you can believe that) and were knowledgable. So my biggest complaints so far are: a) obvious quality control b) they make me pay for shipping due to there poor quality control.

Easy setup, works as advertised

Pros: Value MB choice. Price is right, good feature mix for simple simple system. Supports built-in Intel GPU on CPU. Gigabyte reliability, ease of build.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Part of a refresh to my son's PC. Replacing an older MB w/ an e2180 Intel CPU. Put in this MB w/ a G3220, and 8GB ram, and it runs like great. So much faster, smooth now playing Mindcraft (his main game). I didn't even put the older GPU card back in, so running only on the internal Intel GPU - but haven't tried stressing yet with graphics intense games.

Noisy monitor

ASUS MK241H Black 24" 2ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with 1.3M Pixel Webcam 450 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 3000:1)  Built in Speakers
ASUS MK241H Black 24" 2ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with 1.3M Pixel Webcam 450 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 3000:1) Built in Speakers

Pros: Cheap 24" monitor with all the necessary features and decent image.

Cons: VERY annoying hum.

Overall Review: If not the med-high pitched hum, I'd certainly have given this monitor a 4-5 egg rating. Color's not perfect, but hey it's a under $250 (after rebate) LCD. But this hum...AAHHH!!! It's driving me crazy. So, it's going back. Not sure if it's a characteristic of the mk241h or just my particular set though.
