Pros: i have been using this for about 2 weeks now, i did not experience any disconnects, or have to ever unplug and re-plug it like others reported, i am assuming this was something that was fixed in the latest driver update on 8/17/15. i never used the included driver cd either. i went to the netgear website and downloaded the newest driver. which you should probably do too.
Cons: does not work with Steam OS, does not work with Linux, does not work with OSX. there is a work around to get it to work under linux, but it has problems. It feels cheaply made, it popped open while plugging it into a usb port.
speed is relatively slow. especially when there are adapters that perform 85% as fast and cost about a tenth of the price.
the usb extension is only about 3 feet long. it might be long enough to get from your tower, to the top of your desk. an extra 2 feet would of have been nice.
Other Thoughts: Maximum file transfer speed i was able to reach is 28MB/s. This is plenty fast for browsing the internet, or streaming video. the more distance between it and your router the slower it performs, range seems to be identical to all my other wireless usb adapters.
overall id say its ok. but i think for the price, it should be much faster.
Pros: cheap, good looking, good cooling, quiet, sturdy.
Cons: not enough room behind motherboard tray to run cables effectively.
not enough space above the motherboard to actually mount top fans. there is about a half inch of space from the edge of the motherboard and the top of the case, and if any components or heat sinks on the board stand up higher than 3/4 of a inch they will get in the way of the fans. this could of easily been prevented by thermaltake, there is enough space to have the fan locations an entire inch closer to the door. they could of also made the entire top of the case a metal mesh and fit 3 fans.
the paint is easy to chip off. i made the mistake of laying this tower on its side on top of my computer desk. when i moved it the edge of the desk took the paint right off.
Other Thoughts: great beginner or budget case. case material is Steel.. SECC means Steel, Electro-galvanized, ColdRolled, Coil. so its basically a thin sheet of metal which was stamped to shape. the front of the case is plastic, and they did that part right. its made well, doesn't seem flimsy or easy to break. bought it elsewhere last black friday, i use it for one of my spare computers, and have no complaints.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: inland 70117 Keyboard
Pros: cheap. textured keys feel good. key presses are quiet. (water resistant) it feels comfortable to use. looks cool. there is not much to it, i don't see any reason this keyboard wont last a long time.
would be nice to have these available in several different colors.
Cons: the 6 function keys at the top are nearly impossible to read, the symbol is barely etched in them. and the mute looks like a sideways letter T. the only way to see the symbol is to use the glare to your advantage.
the lettering on these keys will wear off over time, its just painted on. keycaps are not standard you wont be able to swap them with standard replacements. the traveling distance is shorter than normal.
Other Thoughts: the way this keyboard is designed, spills are supposed to escape through drainage holes that lead out the bottom of the keyboard. however, if you flip the keyboard upside down, you can actually get the spill inside the keyboard and ruin it. so don't do that. just set the keyboard in the sink and very slowly run small amount of water between the keys to rinse any stickiness. "slowly" if you overflow the tray liquid will get inside.READ FULL REVIEW
