Pros: Extremely simple install, amazing performance. CrystalDiskMark 3.03 pegged it as 132x faster than my 7200 rpm hard-drive (4K QD32 read at 105 MB/s, sequential read at 697 MB/s). This gain is even larger when dealing with heavily fragmented files. For GIS work, it is fantastic.
Cons: The card itself is half-height (low-profile), but the bracket is full-size. There is no half-height bracket available, anywhere. There is no way to comfortably install this card in a half-height PC without extreme jury-rigging. In my case, I removed the bracket and left it hanging in the PCIe slot, but any serious bump of the desk will make it slip of the socket enough for the motherboard to cut power to it. Is it that hard for Plextor to make a half-height bracket???READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EnGenius ESR300H Long Range Wireless N Router up to 300Mbps
Pros: I cannot believe you can get so much for thirty bucks. It works fabulously right out of the box, includes a VPN server, multiple SSID support, automatic channel selection, gives me a great signal everywhere in the house (unlike the WRT54g it replaced), and has a decent little firewall, it's perfect. I got it for my parents, but I'm so impressed I'll be replacing my tomato-WRT54g with one also.
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a cheap small home 802.11n (2.4 ghz) router, you can't go wrong with this little guy.READ FULL REVIEW
