APEVIA G-80MM 80mm Fan Grill
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good Value 08/16/2014

This review is from: APEVIA G-80MM 80mm Fan Grill

Pros: Well-made. Nice black coating! Perfect for the two 80 mm holes I drilled in my Mini ITX case's side panel to allow more cooling for my video card with 2 80 mm fans.

Cons: Terrible shipping by DHL and the USPO. Just because shipping is free, why does it take 5 days to go from CA to NM?

Other Thoughts: Newegg still is and always be the BEST. A pity many corporations don't use the same business practices. The customer is still first here!

TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, 300Mbps, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Tsk, tsk. Advertised speeds only possible with decent ISP bandwidth and a better router 08/15/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, 300Mbps, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: Price, I paid more when it first came out and reviews were favorable. I had done research and understood what was necessary to obtain optimal wireless speeds in a 2700 square foot home. The wireless signal from the Asus RTN66U router had to go through a few interior and exterior walls to get to my HTPC on the other side of the house. Wireless speeds have always been 300 Mbps on the less used channel of the router with this adapter so I knew that you need a better router that matches the adapter card as well as guaranteed 15-25 Mbps from your ISP

Cons: Harder to find the interface on newer motherboards nowadays

Other Thoughts: Before complaining, other users should note that the vendor's promised speeds will only present themselves when you have better than average bandwidth offered by your ISP and a dual channel router like mine. Of course, it's up to the user to investigate where bottlenecks are and address them before condemning the wireless card. Knowledge is a beautiful thing.

5 out of 5 eggs Don't expect better speeds with a cheap router and poor ISP bandwidth 08/15/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, 300Mbps, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: price, I paid more when I read reviews on its abilities. I put it in my HTPC on the other side of the house with signals going through interior and exterior walls. My wireless connection has been consistent at 300 Mbps with an Asus RTN66U router and cable internet.

Cons: The interface is getting harder and harder to find on the new motherboards.

Other Thoughts: Before complaining, other users should note that the vendor's promised speeds will only present themselves when you have a better than average bandwidth offered by your ISP and a dual channel router like mine. Of course, it's up to the user to investigate where bottlenecks are and address them before condemning the wireless card. Knowledge is a beautiful thing.
