Pros: Small. Runs Windows Media Center perfectly with good response. Works great with HD Home Run Prime cable card tuner. dual-band WiFi (5 and 2.4 GHz). This helps in packed areas...until everyone else gets 5GHz, I guess.
Cons: CPU is a bit weak so sites like HBOGO and MAXGO that for some reason don't support video GPU acceleration don't work well.
No rear audio port.
Other Thoughts: Don't expect this computer to be a workhorse, but it's pretty good for making your TV "Smart" in a Windows sort of way...if you install Windows on it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: At 5GHz it has a stable super fast connection with the AC router.
Comes with extension cord so you can angle the adapter better. It seems to make a difference a bit.
Cons: 5 GHz radio does not go as far as 2.4 GHz radio...or at least through floors.
Other Thoughts: At long range, 2.4GHz is better so this would be a waste of money considering 5db 2.4 GHz adapters are much cheaper. This adapter is only good for short to medium range.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Pretty long range, It works for a long time. I've had this on for over a year until I had to unplug it for upgrading network. It litterally said 300+ days in up-time.
Cons: In the "outskirts" it sometimes seems to get low speeds and/or disconnect. Maybe it gets confused by obstructions and bouncing that is caused by chance interferance making it "smartbeam" to the wrong place. Then I turn on another device, in the same area and then it re-finds the disconnected device. But I guess this is better than it not working at all.
Other Thoughts: When it works, it's really great and fast and all, but smart beam is not a genius beam.READ FULL REVIEW
