Good router

Linksys WRT150N-RM Wireless-N Home Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft
Linksys WRT150N-RM Wireless-N Home Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft

Pros: Small size, supports wireless N, compatible with the full version of DD-WRT.

Cons: Only a 90 day warranty.

Overall Review: Flashing the router with DD-WRT took about 5 minutes (you must flash with micro generic first, then you can flash it with the full version). I haven't had to touch the router since I bought it over a month ago.

Good headset

SteelSeries Spectrum 5XB Xbox 360 Headset

Pros: The headset is very comfortable and lightweight. It can be worn for hours with no discomfort at all. The sound quality is really good and there is a decent amount of bass (not to much or to little).

Cons: The live mixer is USB powered which creates some audible hum.

Overall Review: The only bad thing I can say about these is the audible hum that is present when the live mixer is plugged in to the USB port. This is not a headset issue, when they are plugged into my PC (bypassing the live mixer) there is no hum at all.

works for the 360

Pros: Works correctly with the 360 and xbox live. Decently priced, good sound, comfortable, not very heavy, removable mic, has volume control for chat and game sound.

Cons: There is a light hiss when the chat volume is turned all the way down. You also sometimes get a crackling when you move your 360 controller when the mic is plugged in.

Overall Review: I needed a headset for my 360 and after reading the reviews from other sites I chose these. They are not as nice as my higher end PC headset but they work correctly with the 360 and they sound pretty good.

Overall Review: Comes with a free game.

Great Laptop

ASUS Laptop G Series Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26GHz) 4GB Memory 200GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit G50V-X1

Pros: Excellent build quality and design, high resolution LCD, quiet and effective CPU/GPU cooling, 7200rpm hard drive, dedicated graphics card, not a lot of bloatware.

Cons: I wish they would have used the 9700m GTS.

Overall Review: Mine came with a Razer copperhead mouse that has been rebranded by Asus. It plays COD4 at 1024x768 perfectly. If you raise the resolution it starts to struggle so don't expect to game at 1680x1050.
