EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Works on Raspberry Pi/Xbian 09/03/2013

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter

Pros: Unplugged my Pi, plugged the adapter into a USB hub (the TekRepublic 7-port), fired it up, SSHed into Xbian, picked the adapter from the list, and it worked fine. Just watched a 1080p video from my computer upstairs without a hiccup.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I got this solely for use on my Raspberry Pi running Xbian (XBMC for RPi). I actually have an ethernet cable available, but this actually seemed to work even better.

5 out of 5 eggs Strong Buy - best enclosure 09/03/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Easy to load the drive; drive runs cool with fan on. Very fast transfer via eSATA.

Cons: A little noisy with the fan running. With two plugged in via eSATA, seems like one always requires replugging to be recognized. Not a major problem and may be something I'm doing wrong.

Other Thoughts: Like everyone else, I have several external enclosures. The drives in some run VERY HOT (check with Crystal Disk Info) -- up to 60C in the case of my WD MyBook. With the fan on (it's optional by the way) the drive in this Rosewill enclosure runs about 33C -- right in the sweet spot. I use mine for a backup drive so I normally turn it on just to do my backup and it's not so noisy I don't often forget to turn it off when I shut down for the night.
