5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased

Pros: It was a snap to install; removed my Motorolla RAZR2 SIM, slid it into the GT Express Card, and plugged it into my laptop.

Transfer rates seem faster than when I tethered the phone via USB, either way it's nice not having to completely drain my phone's battery after 45 minutes of being online!

Cons: None really, so far. There have been occasional throughput 'quirks' that could be AT&T Network related, particulars within my software configuration, or both.

Other Thoughts: I often use Ubuntu Linux, which recognized the device and worked without any additional software. In Windows XP, I did need to download the Option software but that was easily done and it works well.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great - iPhone 3G Sim

Pros: Works great - With Option Connect Software and iPhone 3G Sim Card!!! AT&T told me I could use my SIM with my enterprise data plan, then when I got this it didn't work with their software and they then told me I needed laptop connect plan. Anyway, downloaded Option Connect (Globetrotter) software from website and WORKS LIKE A CHARM!!!!!!

Cons: None really, used on Amtrak FL to NY and worked great, a few sluggish points but no drawbacks really.

Other Thoughts: AWESOME!!

5 out of 5 eggsWorking great

Pros: Working great in Windows 7 with the SIM card from iPhone 3GS. The speed is better than I initially expected. It also works well overseas -- Specifically I've tested it in Frankfurt, Germany and Bangalore, iIndia. If you are thinking of using it overseas, make sure you have the right international data package otherwise you will very quickly rack up a huge bill.

Cons: Can't think of any at the moment. Perhaps it is a bit smaller that will be even better - but that's a small gripe.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat pair for an iPhone 3G

Pros: -Very fast internet on the 3G network
-Works with my iPhone 3G SIM card
-I was forced to use the Option software instead of the AT&T stuff, but it's actually much nicer

Cons: -the Zero-CD setup crashed, forcing me to eject the disk before the install completed, rendering that drive useless
-Can't get the card to with with Mac OS 10.6, but haven't really tried much.

Other Thoughts: I used Globetrotter v3 software with Windows 7 and it works like a charm.

5 out of 5 eggswow it's not bad

Pros: WOW I wasn't expecting this card to be AWESOME.
I just got it today and i'm highly impressed with this card. It was easy as 1-2-3 for me. I'm using windows xp and I just followed the instructions. It was plug and play for me. I know a lot of people are having problems but my guess was that this card was not ment for windows vista or windows 7 but for windows xp your golden.

Cons: None ATM.

Other Thoughts: I'm writing this review connected on the AT&T 3g network with my express card.
I had to add a new connect with these settings to get the card to connect:
APN: wap.cingular
Username: WAP.CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1
Man this card is not bad. I just checked my email and wrote this review in less than 5 min haha. I'm happy with this purchase and I got this card with the free newegg saver shipping. I received the card within five days. For $40 bucks I want to buy another but I don't need it haha.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work on my VISTA laptop

Pros: none

Cons: My Dell XPS with VISTA will not recognize this card. I have tried both ACM and the two available OPTION Globetrotter SWs. I keep getting Device not found. The device shows up as UNKNOWN DEVICE under USB Controllers in the Device Manager. Spent four hours on this now.
I have had both Novatel and Sierra Wireless cards before and never had a problem. Then again I never tried to use them on a VISTA computer. Anyway it is very disappointing, we were going to use this on trip we are starting tomorrow. But that is not going to happen now.

5 out of 5 eggsUse it with my iPhone SIM

Pros: I bought this a couple months back to use in my MacBookPro. I pop my iPhone SIM in it and use the GlobeTrotter Connect software and it works great on Snow Leopard. Once plugged in you have to let it sit there a minute to find the 3G signal or you will get EDGE.

Cons: None really. I'm happy with my $30 purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsNeat Device

Pros: Bought this thing a few weeks ago and got it working on Windows 7 64-bit with the Globetrotter software from Option with both mine and my wife's AT&T SIM cards. I used the following network info:
APN: wap.cingular
Username: WAP.CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1
The neat thing about it was that I was able to pop this thing in my laptop on a recent trip with my family and use the program "Connectify" to share the network with my daughter's laptop. I was even able to connect my Blackberry up through its wifi even though its SIM card was removed (using Connectify and the 3G connection on my laptop). Network speeds weren't bad either..

Cons: When I first plugged mine in, Windows 7 installed it as a USB drive in my computer. The AT&T connection manager was stored on that drive. I tried that software first, but it did not work for me. It would be nice if the Option software was included with the card. But hey, what are you going to do?

Other Thoughts: This card is a good price since it is much more expensive to purchase this from AT&T with its corresponding data plan and contract. If you have a SIM card cell phone with a data plan and you don't mind having to remove your SIM card every now and again to put in this thing, then this little guy is not a bad buy.

5 out of 5 eggsTuniq Tower 120 Extreme Universal CPU Cooler 120mm Magnetic Fluid Dynamic LED Fan and Fan

Pros: I have used several other cooling systems but what can I say except this Heatsink System is OUTSTANDING! Easy install, almost fingers only; I couldn't believe it! Took my ASUS P5Q-Deluxe with Q9550 from 2.8G right up to 4.0G without a whimper. No over heat problem at all. Ran OCCT for 2.5 hours. Ran Orthos x4 Affinity for 9 hours. Ran Prime95 over 12 hours. I've not had it so good, ever!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Love that Tuniq TX-3 Thermal Grease, this stuff is just AWESOME! It darn near bonds the heatsink to the top of the CPU transferring more heat than anything else I've ever used.

S&H time by Newegg, THE BEST!
