Support Win 8.1 - EDUP 2in1 Client / AP Mini 300M 300Mbps USB WiFi Wireless N LAN Network Adapter 802.11 n/g/b EP-N1571
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well. This is on a small desktop that rests on a TV mount on our wall. Even though the adapter is behind the TV we never experience any signal drops. Our wireless network is N only.

Cons: Nothing really.

Other Thoughts: I was initially looking for a low-profile adapter for a laptop but settled for this one based on specs and price. Perhaps it would not work so well if thew adapter was shorter. It works great for what we need though.

RAIDMAX Agusta ATX-605BT Black/Titanium Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Same as before

Cons: Same as before, but my fears about the plastic 3.5" trays were confirmed. I originally put some 3.5" HHD in 3 of the trays to test the tower out and went to remove them (making room for my RAID 5). The screws on the sides of the drive trays (screws provided with the kit) got stuck 75% of the time. The screws actually threaded themselves into the plastic drive bays where no threading is supposed to exist. I had to use a small flathead screwdriver and a set of pliers to pull the screws from the trays. I was afraid I was going to either break the trays or damage the hard drives that were in them. The computer I built into this case has not been on for even a total hour since I purchased the case, so extreme heat and warping was not a factor - it is made of cheap materials! My RAID 5 that I want to put in is made up of 2.5" drives, but now I am afraid they may also get jammed in the trays. This vexing ordeal has caused me to drop my rating down to 2 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I still don't regret buying this while it was on sale, but now that I have worked with this case I would recommend people strongly consider something else. I still love the older mid-size RAIDMAX case that I had handed down to me for free, so I hope this Agusta is not indicative of their entire product lineup. I just have no idea what made them release this product as it is - something clearly went wrong between design and final product.

RAIDMAX Agusta ATX-605BT Black/Titanium Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent price on a full size case. Decent fans included.

Cons: My case came with one of the plastic heads missing off the front-panel wires. The rubber molding for cable-management never wants to stay in place. LED controller works well, but the fan-control seems to do nothing. The fan and control lighting also came in a tangled, jumbled mess with no instructions on the best way to manage the extensions. The aesthetics are very fragile and not really necessary. It looks and feels like cheap plastic because it is. The honey-comb window on the Black/Titanium model is static dust magnet - I wish it had the mesh like the Black/White model.

Other Thoughts: I don't hate this case. I think for the price it should house a decent home server with some modifications. To me the looks were far from important, but it is definitely not too ugly for me to have it seen by guests in my house. I might add one fan on the front because I am not coming close to using all of the 5.25" bays and more air intake could not hurt (as there are no side fans or exhaust). Also not sure why there is one fan for air intake for the 3.5" bays and two fans for exhaust - but I don't plan on running 6 high speed HDDs in the bay to find out how well it works. I hope the 3.5" trays hold up over time - the plastic seems cheap and may not handle to much removal and replacement. Hopefully I can modify it to house more drive up top instead of more 5.25" bays b/c right now there is a lot of wasted space for me - but more room for people to be creative!
