Pros: I was happily surprised at this USB wireless. I bought this for a cash strapped friend who needed to connect an old computer (P4-1.3G/30GB-5400RPM/640MB RDRAM). I also installed a PCI Rosewill USB2.0 card (Item#: N82E16815166014) to give the machine USB2.0. I was worried that the minimal resources of this machine would cause the software / hardware to be very flaky. That was not the case. It has proven to hold solid connections to a 802.11G access point. I was getting 4/4 signal bars though 2 walls and 15'.
Cons: The only two things I can critique the hardware on is two minor things. It doesn't use the native Windows XP wireless interface. It uses it own custom software. I know many wireless cards do this. I don't like this because it confuses many users between the two management consoles.
The second is it would have been nice to give a short (3') USB extension cable. It would get the huge antenna out of the way of the tangle of wires in the back of the computer. It would probably also improve reception to being aware from a huge source of EM.
Other Thoughts: There was no 'N' access points around to test with. Thus I can't give any comment of it performance/stability there.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill 4+1 VIA USB 2.0 PCI Adapter Model RC-103
Pros: Installed the PCI card in an aging Pentium 4(1.3Ghz) for a neighbor that needed WiFi. Plugged it into an out of date WinXP SP2 machine and it came up without an issue. No drivers needed. Didn't see any USB2 bus based errors even under load which is pretty easy with a slow machine like this.
Cons: None at this moment.
Other Thoughts: Didn't try the internal USB port because the machine didn't have any use for it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: powercom BNT-1500AP 1500 VA 900 Watts 5 Outlets UPS
Pros: One of the best VA per $ for it's time. It was supported Linux with NUT. No problems there. The only issues I had was that you had to go manually silence the alarm every few minutes if the power was out.
Cons: The UPS worked great and the as the battery aged it eventually was not holding much charge. This was a about at the 4 year mark. I knew it the battery was bad so I didn't expect it to do much of anything other than be a surge protector and maybe a bit of line conditioning. That is not what happened. Over the next 6 month I had 3 PSUs die on me. Even before I put the UPS in, I didn't have that much problem with 'dirty' power. I pulled it out of my infrastructure and the dying PSU issue went away too.READ FULL REVIEW
