Summary: Linksys tech support is there 24/7 to help you and I have excellent service from them
Pros: Great sound, I have used this product for over a year now and have been very satisfied with it. Had to download the latest software and upgrade the firmware to version 1.3 to get it to work with Vista. Also need to make sure your playback device is defaulted to speakers for WL-G speakers. Going to buy another one today.
Cons: No cons to speak of, this product will work great when set up correctly. Make sure you are within range of your WL router.
Summary: If you know networking at all this is easy enough to set up.
Pros: The sound quality through this device is excellent. Setup is not too bad (if you are hooking it up to a network router or switch do so from the start...do not hook it directly to your pc). This seems to have decent range, I have the bridge in my garage about 75 feet from my router and the wireless connection is solid through 3 walls. I would recommend this unit.
Cons: Would be nice as noted earlier if you could have the unit in use and still be able to use your pc speakers as well, or run two units or more at once, but I can't be in two places at once anyway.
Easy set up, good sound quality but didn't last long

Summary: There is a 2 second delay between what is actualy being played on the computer and what is on the stereo receiver. Don't plan on using for watching movies.
Pros: Easy to set up, less than five minutes after arriving I was listening to my MP3s on my living room surround sound system. Great sound quality. Easy to use software included.
Cons: The first one I purchased (not from newegg unfortunately) lasted 3 days before losing the signal and could no longer be located by the router. I reset the router, bridge and computer multiple times, but with no luck. The second bridge does not seem to have the same problem, so far so good. If this one fails I will be searching for another brand.
Summary: awesome bridge once you've got it setup, as others said, if you follow the instructions on the linksys forums you should be able to set it up. i didn't see anyone else mention this, but i wasn't able to set it up unless i had my desktop or laptop connected to my router AND the bridge at the same time.
Pros: excellent sound, very good price for the features, plays literally any sound coming out of your computer
Cons: as everyone else said, setup was more difficult than it should be, but not impossible, also lag when watching streaming videos on the internet, but thats expected
