D-Link DGL-4100 Gigabit Gaming Router GamerLounge Broadband 1 x 10/100Mbps WAN Ports 4 x 10/100/1000Mbps LAN Ports
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The longest living and most stable router I've ever had; Gigabit LAN; Relatively easy to configure; The packet prioritizing actually helps a lot if you play games, but you still need to keep your upload/download speeds limited; It only crashed on me one time during its relatively long lifetime.

Cons: Died on me after about 4 years :/ One of the firmware updates complicated the prioritizing configuration a lot. It occasionally developed a nasty refresh page loop on the welcome page in the configuration, although it wasn't really a problem since you could just navigate away from the page.

This might not be a big problem for you, but I don't like LEDs, and there are way too many of them. Luckily I just kept it in a closet so it never bothered me much :)

Other Thoughts: If you turn on the manual upload speed setting for gamefuel, do remember to update it if your ISP changes your speeds since it will cap your upload speed at this value. I was using half my upload speed for quite some time since I never thought about it.

I'm currently considering whether I should get the same router again or go for one of the wireless versions.

Pros: I've been running these at 1116mhz and 5-7-7-21 timings for a few months without a problem. Completely stable :)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great price for 2GB of 1066 memory.

ViewSonic Optiquest Series Q19WB-2 Black 19
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a monitor, it's a lot better than my old CRT, and all pixels started working after a little while :)

Cons: It came with 3 stuck pixels, but they eventually fixed them selfs. It also developed a weird habit of doing the "processing auto configuration" during windows startup and every time i started a game after a month or two. However, that stopped when I unplugged the power and moved it around a bit once. Now I have a problem where the monitor will, for no apparent reason, just make a weird sound, shut down, and stay off for a few seconds to several minutes before it comes back on. Unplugging / replugging the power cord doesn't seem to have any effect on it either.

Other Thoughts: Considering that a 19" monitor only has about 75% of the pixels and screen area compared to a 22" monitor the minor price difference seems negligible.
