TP-LINK TL-WN8200ND High Power Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n Mini USB Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: pretty much plug and play on W10

Cons: Terrible performance, roughly 1/10 of my older version (W822). In the same location, same pc, only swapping adaptors the W822 got 4 bars and 130Mbps, the WN8200nd got 0-1 bar and 2-7Mbps. Despite better stats and bigger antennas it performs worse in every way than the older version.

Other Thoughts: I generally have had very, very good luck w/ TP Link products, but this one is a stinker. it kinda sorta works, but so badly as to be worthless. I"m using Win10, 4790k, 16GB RAM, etc.

QNIX QX2710 Evolution ll Glossy 2560x1440 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: cheap, large, reasonable bezel size, good resolution. MNW Global was great, very reasonable, prompt shipping, accepted return albeit w/ somewhat high ($100) penalty.

Cons: It turns out neither my wife nor I like the way LED backlit monitors make text harder to read; it's sort of uneven brightness/sparkly. That's not just this monitor, it's all LED's we've seen, and after getting this we looked at many. I ended up finding a new old stock HP zr30w w/ ccfl backlight, despite the heat it generates. Text is much easier to read, for us, ymmv.

Other Thoughts: this is a very good monitor. I don't know why no one else seems to see or talk about the uneven sparkly brightness effect my wife and I both see so very clearly on LED monitors. If that doesn't bother you, this is a great monitor.

lenovo 31P7410 Raven Black 3 Buttons USB or PS/2 Wired Optical 800 dpi ThinkPad Travel Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: small, but not tiny, light...and no retractable cord. I use a claw grip (grab w/ fingertips, not palming the mouse), and have small-ish hands. A larger, heavier mouse really strains my tendons after a long session, this does not.

Cons: bit bit loud on the clicks, and expensive. Oh, and rather basic.

Other Thoughts: if you have some repetitive stress issues, and have smaller hands, and use a claw grip instead of a palm-on grip, this may be your ticket. For me, it's worth the premium price for such a simple mouse. My hands thank me after a long day on the computer, but ymmv.
