Rosewill RNX-G300LX - Wireless WRT54 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b/g, Up to 54 Mbps Data Rate, PCI Interface with 2 dBi Antenna
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Recent linux kernels include the drivers for this chipset, so it works perfectly (I'm using a 2.6.28 kernel) once you download the firmware, for which most distributions provide a package in their normal repository.

* Comes with a low-profile bracket.

* Good price (though a bit cheaper elsewhere).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: One thing to note is that the signal can be very sensitive to antenna orientation. I was getting extremely weak reception, only connecting sporadically, until I rotated the antenna and suddenly got a strong, clear signal. I can consistently hit 3MB/s (24mbit) through a few walls to my router, now.

LITE-ON USB 2.0 EZ DUB External 20X DVD±R Burner Model DX-20A4PU-06

4 out of 5 eggs Loud, a bit ugly, but works great 01/08/2009

This review is from: LITE-ON USB 2.0 EZ DUB External 20X DVD±R Burner Model DX-20A4PU-06

Pros: It works well for me in Linux both reading and burning (with Brasero). No coasters yet (but I've only burned ~10 discs), and it does what it's supposed to. For the price, how can I complain?

Cons: Some discs spin up with a very loud buzz. Even the quieter ones have a very noticeable hum.

It's not the most attractive object around my desk.

And the blue-lit buttons are fairly pointless for me (though some might appreciate one-touch access to whatever they do under Windows) and obnoxiously bright. I have it in my bookshelf where you can't see the lights, though, and it's fine. None of these complaints are enough to take off more than one egg, total.

Kingston DataTraveler I 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model DTI/2GB
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Decent speed, actually 01/30/2008

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler I 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model DTI/2GB

Pros: It has a good design, a good price, and, surprisingly, good speed. Mine, manufactured in Dec. '07 (according to the date printed on the side) gets 16MB/s read and 6MB/s write. That's not as fast as some, certainly, but this is not marketed or priced as a fast drive. So it's good speed for a great price.

Cons: Nothing major. It is what it says it is.

Other Thoughts: There is a spot for a small lanyard, and it actually includes a small lanyard. I almost missed the lanyard until I saw a picture of it in a review, actually - the lanyard was somewhat hidden inside the packaging.
