Congrats to Dennis F. of San Diego for winning a copy of Nuance Communications' latest version of Dragon Dictate for Mac last week. This week, we're offering a Linksys WRT1900AC wireless router, which CNET reviewer Dong Ngo calls "easily one of the best home routers on the market."
A modernized version of Linksys' best-selling WRT54G, the WRT1900AC is one of the fastest around, delivering speeds of up to 1,300Mbps on the 5GHz frequency band and up to 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. It has great range, and when hosting a storage device, provides network storage performance equal to that of many high-end dedicated NAS servers.
Normally, a Linksys WRT1900AC would run you $299.99, but here's your chance to get this Wi-fabulous device for free. It's not too early to start thinking about graduation or Father's Day, but before you do, there are a few rules, so please read carefully.
