This review is from: PlayStation 4 Console with Free The Last of Us Remastered Bundle
Pros: As others have already pointed out, this is the revised PS4 CUH-1215A model; matte black, physical buttons, a bit lighter, quieter and more efficient. So far, it seems to run smooth after installing the update, and it plays the games that the kids want. I have yet to try streaming (but I'm guessing that it will be better than the PS3).
Cons: Cost seems a bit high to me, I don't think it is quite as good as my PS3 Slim for Blu-Ray playback, and only two USB ports on the front.
Other Thoughts: I got this primarily for the kids so that they could play Disney Infinity, which will probably end up costing as much as the console itself once we've acquired all of the characters.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6183 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem - 600 MHz Dual-Thread Processor
Pros: Fast & stable (thus far), the SB6183 is probably the best cable modem option if your provider offers >100 Mbps service. Setup is easy and it reboots pretty quickly.
Cons: Well, it isn't as attractive as its black Motorola predecessors. And as others have mentioned, the bright LED light leakage is annoying.
Other Thoughts: It works great with TWC Maxx, although I was unable to activate my modem online. Attempting manual self-activation through TWC resulted in an error message stating that I had to call customer service because this device could not be activated through the system.
Depending upon the server & time of day, I have gotten over 200 Mbps down and greater than 20 Mbps up. I was able to download Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon (1.5 GB) in under 2 minutes.
This review is from: ASUS Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: The Asus Z-97 Pro is an excellent LGA1150 Z-97 motherboard! Rock solid stability, with a good feature set and BIOS options for tweaking and overclocking. I've had this motherboard for almost 9 months, and felt that this was the best value for those that wanted to step up to Haswell-R if coming from pre-Sandy Bridge/Bulldozer hardware.
Cons: None, other than perhaps M2.SATA which doesn't interest me. I would have preferred more SATA-III ports or dual Intel LAN NICs.
