Advertisements Ah, yes. That's what nudged me to get better equipment. Besides a good price at checkout, the combo-rebate. I don't usually buy anything with a rebate, or just don't send it in (often gets the same result as sending the rebate in - never recieved claim). Just a data-point: The NewEgg reviews on the Netgear combo-rebates have started coming in as being a pre-paid card, only good for purchase of more Netgear equipment. I can not confirm this yet (no rebate received yet). It's also worth noting that this would be the third month of "Buy Netgear products, in this list, for this month, and get up to a $__.__ pre-paid card" promotion. If NewEgg didn't make the checkout price a good, or great, deal on it's own, I'd never let a rebate sway my purchase decisions. Then, there's a whole new set of complications if you could return the product, due to not liking it, but gave-away that right by cutting off the UPC code. Then, you can only go through product warranty, and are stuck with what you bought (or a refurbished replacement, and paying shipping).
