BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N600 Gigabit Simultaneous Dual Band DD-WRT Wireless Router - WZR-600DHP
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Comes with dd-wrt installed
Runs openwrt (12.09) perfectly
40 MHz channel width (300Mbps) support
Excellent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz range (at 20dbm/100mW)
Both radios supports multi/virtual ssid/wifi along with vlans so you can segregate your wireless network (tested with openwrt)

Cons: dd-wrt can't disable wps (even with it disabled it shows up in scans), thus another reason to run openwrt
lack of dd-wrt 'official Buffalo' firmware updates to address various issues (although there are dd-wrt 'community supported' releases you can use)
Flimsy non-removable antennas

Other Thoughts: Although dd-wrt is nice, I find openwrt to be more powerful and reliable. The broken wps configuration, plus a few other issues with dd-wrt will probably make you upgrade, too. Overall a great open source supported router for an excellent price, thus why I bought two more.

ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - 1080p
- vga, dvi + hdmi
- built in speakers
- good price ($135 after rebate)

Cons: - lots of dead pixels
- damaged/marked screen

Other Thoughts: There are numerous dead pixels and worse, there is damage to the screen. At first the damage appeared to be some sort of mark/stain, and cleaning it with some monitor cleaner plus a microfiber cloth helped removed most of the mark, yet it still persists. As a result there are around 10-12 pixels total which are always black due to both dead pixels and the mark/stain. It's just not worth it to spend the $25 to send back for rma.

I have purchased many monitors over the years, mostly from acer and dell, and I have only ever encountered a single stuck/dead pixel - until now. I was excited to try out an asus monitor, primarily because I have had good experience with other asus products like motherboards and video cards, and their monitor prices seemed well priced. I guess you get what you pay for.

This will be my first and last asus monitor!

HighPoint Rocket 620 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

5 out of 5 eggs works great with Linux 07/28/2011

This review is from: HighPoint Rocket 620 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: - reliable
- works with Linux (2.6.38 kernel)

Cons: - a bit pricey for a 2 port card

Other Thoughts: I have this connected to a dvdrw and a 2TB Seagate sata drive running Ubuntu using the 2.6.38 kernel (back ported from Natty). Running without problems for over a month now.
