Pros: Decent budget card features, performance, and memory when purchased 8 years ago.
Cons: Died after about 8 years of use. Not too bad I guess. Caused computer to turn COMPLETELY OFF 4 seconds after power on. Replacing the video card restored computer to operation.
Other Thoughts: Not sure what component died in the card. Looked for bad capacitors but none seemed bulged. GPU fan still works great.
Received this card from Newegg but actually ordered a very similar LOW profile card. Accepted the card rather than return it. End of Line.
Pros: It is an adapter with removeable N150 WIFI BT card by RALINK and seems even more promising if upgraded to a low cost Intel AC card. Price seemed very fair, only to find it was not nearly worth my time and frustration with poor product.
Cons: Card and attached bracket are pushed several millimeters forward so they can not install in my motherboard slot. If I could seat this card straight down where the rear bracket lands, all the contacts would be misaligned to the next adjacent contact and fry my equipment! Thankfully the MB keyed plastic socket won't allow installation of this junk. Seeking refund from Newegg even though the cost is low.
Other Thoughts: I have been building computers for decades and sometimes needed to adjust a card, rear bracket, or screws to help fit the motherboard or case alignment. This card simply could not be adjusted enough to install in my PC so I reinstalled my previous WIFI card in the slot quite easily. Disappointed that a good product idea was manufactured so badly.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CASE ROSEWILL | FBM-05 Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case-Retail
Pros: Attractive, professional appearance, not too plain or too exotic/ugly. Includes ONE front USB 3.0 port for motherboard USB 3.0 header. Two fans included. No problems mounting motherboard, DVDRW drive, 3.5 inch front bay, and SSD with 2.5 inch adapter.
Cons: My first case was damaged with a punctured hole in the box, denting the side panel. Not sure if a warehouse or shipping issue. Newegg replaced, but that arrived with a badly crooked soldered USB 2.0 port. Another replacement (3rd time) was good. Front cover removal is too tight and has a bad crack on back side. Not visible on front.
Other Thoughts: This has a LOT of potential as a cheap priced micro ATX mini case with good looks and features. I had much trouble getting a good one though, and great Newegg service is the only reason I did not ask for refund instead.READ FULL REVIEW
