MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: great performance and wonderful bang for the buck

Cons: support from msi is terrible. 5-15 days without something that i pretty much need to be able to use my computer. they won't cross ship nor offer any other expedited delivery methods, especially given that the problem IS THEIR PROBLEM caused by THEIR STICKER! heck, just send me a new hsf and i'll install the new unit. i don't need the whole freaking card!

the worth of a company is shown by how they handle problems when they arise and MSI isn't worth my money any longer.

Other Thoughts: already selling my MSI laptop i bought a few months ago, not because i don't like it, it's because if anything goes wrong with it it'll be 10-25 days of repair time. i frikken replaced my motherboard in an hour when my alienware died (under warranty and they let me do it myself b/c the last guy broke my keyboard when he was attempting the repair). i really need to do homework on RMA policies of companies before i buy.

Edimax EW-7822UAC Wireless AC1200 Dual-band USB 3.0 Adapter, Complies to Draft 802.11ac Standard, Delivers More Than Two Times Faster Wi-Fi Speed Than 802.11n, With Adjustable Foldaway Antenna for Optimum High Performance
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: AC and USB 3.0

Cons: slow connection

Other Thoughts: after having some time to tweak it a bit i found that i can get more consistent results than my netgear a6200. the edimax is just quite a bit more picky about where and what angle to put it to get decent throughput. it's still a bit slower to connect than the a6200, but as long as i don't have plex to autostart it's not a problem.

As long as i maintain a signal quality of 90% or higher i can get ~230Mb/s download from 40ft away and 3 walls. up is about 170-200.

Edimax EW-7822UAC Wireless AC1200 Dual-band USB 3.0 Adapter, Complies to Draft 802.11ac Standard, Delivers More Than Two Times Faster Wi-Fi Speed Than 802.11n, With Adjustable Foldaway Antenna for Optimum High Performance
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: usb 3.0

Cons: slow throughput, slow to establish connection, no extension cable

Other Thoughts: same as the other user i've also got an Asus ASUS RT-AC66U (actually the R). i've also got 2 other wireless routers spread across the house. although the connection quality is better than on my netgear ac adapter, the througput is less than 1/2. both 2.4 and 5 ghz perform poorly. i've even disabled all routers except for one for testing. i barely break 100Mb/s where the netgear is pulling 135-200Mb/s with a "weaker" connection.

also, the netgear establishes connection even before i log on. the edimax doesn't establish connection for around a minute after logging in.

i'll just toss this into my backup stuff for when the netgear breaks. i'll keep an eye out for a better usb 3.0 adapter.
