Pros: Wireless N and G. True Wireless N that operates on 5ghz frequency.
Cons: Must install drivers from CD or Rosewill website. Windows will not find these automatically.
Speeds are still in the 20-50MB/S range which is under CAT5e/6, but impressive for wireless. Speeds could be my router as well so I am not taking off an egg for this.
So big it takes over 4 usb ports that surround it, although they do come with mini expansion cords to keep it away from the board.
Price is still a bit steep, even for N - Got mine on sale :).
Other Thoughts: Overall I love these adapters and would purchase more if Wireless ac wasn't taking over soon (for a decent price of course).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 10w processor.
Micro Atx with plenty of expansion options.
Takes standard DDR3 sized memory (not compact laptop).
Plays 1080 and 720 very smoothly.
Very quick boot.
Takes +2tb drives out of the box.
Cons: Only 2 Sata ports, but plenty of expansion bays for other options.
Other Thoughts: Currently using as Media server/htpc and crunching with Boinc. Never bogs down and stays around the 25-30w range.
Paired with 1600 DDR3 ripjaw memory and a WD 6TB drive with a 128gig ocz SSD for boot.
Use onboard graphics and do not see a need to upgrade it since the processor would bottle neck higher end GPUs.
It is amazing that this is like 4 pentium 4 chips crammed into one 10w package. Great for everyday computing needs and even Green crunching.
This review is from: APEVIA 14SL-BL 140mm UV Blue LED Fan - Retail
Pros: Great price.
Keeps things adequate.
Came with a PWM to Molex converter.
Glows blue giving off that arctic cool look.
Cons: Airflow feels pretty week. Put my hand against this and against a few 40mm fans and it just doesn't have the same pull. The description says 59.6 CFM, but it feels more like 20-30.
Other Thoughts: For 140mm and a CFM of 59, I was expecting these things to be mini box fans.READ FULL REVIEW
