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.

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.

BenQ  W710ST  1280 x 720  2500 Lumens  DLP  HD Short-Throw Projector

5 out of 5 eggs very impressed 12/28/2012

This review is from: BenQ W710ST 1280 x 720 2500 Lumens DLP HD Short-Throw Projector

Pros: bright - usable in a room with a 60 cfl.
huge screen in a short distance
3d works well - dlp link using cheap sainsonic glasses and stereoscopic player
low noise
has an audio out
great price ($550 on sale)

Cons: maybe should have gotten 2 instead of this and a k330.

Other Thoughts: i only have 3 other pjs to compare it to so my review is limited by my short experience with pjs. the others i've had are mg-50, qumi q2 and the k330. the w710st surely puts all these to shame. at 7 feet i'm throwing a 134" diag screen on the wall (waiting to find where my wife wants the screen placed). even at 11' none of the others match that size nor the brightness even in eco mode. i've read that short throw pjs have a lower quality image than standard throw, so i expect to be pretty darn impressed if i ever switched because the image is beautiful even on a tan wall.
