This review is from: Edimax EW-7822UAC Wireless AC1200 Dual-band USB 3.0 Adapter, Complies to Draft 802.11ac Standard, Delivers More Than Two Times Faster Wi-Fi Speed Than 802.11n, With Adjustable Foldaway Antenna for Optimum High Performance
Pros: Good strong speeds. Sort of.
Cons: This reincarnation of the adapter has issues that I didn't experience with the older version. It falls apart. Ordered two of them, they sat in a desktop case and still managed to fall apart. Like they open at the seams and get all kinds of wobbly.
Connections start off strong but begin to degrade if getting hammered on, like say in online games or real large downloads.
Other Thoughts: First gen version served admirably. This, not so much. Replaced them with another brand and have had none of the above mentioned cons.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Upgraded from a Core2Duo era rig with a E8600 chip. Real world performance is about 3x improved. Instant improvement in all games, quieter fan, happier dude.
Cons: None. Not at this price.
Other Thoughts: Bang for the buck.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NVIDIA $150 In-Game for Warface, Path of Exile, and Heroes of Newerth
Pros: Free games I reckon. The paper was of good quality and had a wonderful sheen on it. I received not one papercut from handling the coupon and the code didn't scrape off with the goop. So far as I know, no animals were harmed in the making of this coupon.
Cons: The games themselves.
Other Thoughts: Nobody I know plays these games. I've heard of them, in the way you sometimes hear of some saint's face appearing on a taco shell, but I'm not rushing to check that out either.READ FULL REVIEW
