    First of let me just say that the reviews here on Guru 3D are my favorite to read, but I have some gripes:

    1) I have "lite" speed cable (14 kbs max) ,and often what happens is that when I click on the next number page on a review, I just get the white screen that loads forever, forcing me to go back or refresh for about 5 minutes until it comes up, I don't have this issue with alot of sites, yet on Gutu 3D it happens very frequently, it could be because of my PC, but I figured it's worth mentioning.

    2) How about adding a chosable (a pull down menu for example) of all the pages in the review, that way it would be posible to just rush to the sections of interest, rather than having to go thru page by page of stuff that may not interest you about a perticular card.

    Thx, in advance, and keep up the good work Hilbert.

    1) If you get blank screens then give your ISP a call as you are likely connecting trough a bad backbone or something. I can tell you this though, it isn't on our end nor is at issue that i've heard of before. It sounds like data-packets are timing out due to loss or something.

    Do me a favor, open up a command promts and send in the results of 'tracert guru3d.com'.

    2) Look at the top of the page where it says 'Select page to load'. That a pull-down menu my friend and it has been there for a long time already.
