Pros: Small, cute.
Cons: Windows 7 does not have a built in driver for this adapter. If you try to use Orico's CSR Harmony "wireless" adapter software the program wants to take over ALL your wireless connections and then charge you for a user license... the cost of the adapter is peanuts but the hassle (and price) of finding and getting a user license to use the CSR Harmony driver is a complete ripoff.
Other Thoughts: This is the second Orico product I have bought and rated 1 star because of inferior driver issues. You would think these Chinese entrepreneurs would figure out by now the driver software is of paramount importance and know they would have to include it in the initial cost of the product. I will never buy Orico products again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Netis WF2416 Wireless N150 Pocket Size Traveler AP Router Repeater with Wall Plug
Pros: I thought I had my house (2100SF) adequately covered with my hoopty doo dual antennae Buffalo Router/wifi... granted I only had two bars in the bedrooms and maybe that is OK for my cell phone but I wanted to gamble a little on the cheap by adding extenders to see if I could hit 5 bars and pump up my download speeds. I bought two of these extenders on sale for $20 total including shipping... what a bargain. I got 5 bars everywhere in this house now and good solid WiFi performance on my computers. This is the second time I have bought Netis products, and I am very happy with their high performance products. They have the good design brains and the right engineering team.
Cons: These plug-in wall outlet units do get warm.
Other Thoughts: If you're using this device as an extender then of course enter the SSID for your mother router/AP in the Netis setup on 192.168.100.1 but name your "extended WiFi" something new/unique. I had problems trying to have the Buffalo router/WiFi and the Netis extender share the same SSID name... it just would not work. When I am moving around the house my cellphone automatically hands off to the strongest signal (once I entered the two passwords into my phone).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Diablotek DA Series PSDA400 400W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: So light in weight that I can pick it up with one finger
Cons: Lasted 8 months before it blew... but it gave me plenty of notice it was going to die for the two weeks leading up to its death. Every morning when I turned it on the fan would screech and labor hard to get up to speed.
Other Thoughts: I suppose I got 8 months of value out it so I am not all that bitter, but I would never put this quality of PSU in a mission-critical situation.READ FULL REVIEW
