This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655/RE) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: 3 antenna design, cheap price
Cons: Not as great as rev. A units for reliability, range, and real QOS functions
Other Thoughts: D-link has been using the same model name to sell Rev. B units, capitalizing on the success of Rev. A units, which reviewed well, and had a real Ubicom Qos chip. Ubicom's chipset was unparalleled at the time for its robustness for many network streams. Rev B unit do not have Ubicom chipset, it has a Atheros chipset which supports Qos but nowhere near as intelligent as Ubicom.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy application, dropped temps about 2-3 degrees. Free after rebate. Reputable brand.
Non-conductive so its very safe for the noobies.
Other Thoughts: I am using oem cooler on i7-3770k, cleaned off previous paste with alcohol wipe, and I applied this using rice grain method. Temps on idle and turbo speeds dropped about 2-3 degrees.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Renesas is among the most compatible usb 3.0 chipsets.
Constant stream of driver and firmware updates on station-drivers to keep it up to date.
Cons: Wish I could get UAS protocol support in windows 7
Badly designed, makes you connect molex connector to power up even low powered or self powered USB devices.
My other Renesas USB 3.0 cards only make molex power connector optional, this one is mandatory.
Drivers on CD is old, dont even bother.
Other Thoughts: Manufacturer does not even specify that Molex power is mandatory on this card, every other card's molex connector is optional for high powered USB 3.0 devices.
Had to buy a molex extension cable cause the one is the system did not reach.
