Perixx PX-1100 Backlit Gaming Keyboard - Red/Blue/Purple Illuminated Keys
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Works great out of the box. Great weight too it. The multimedia keys works without any configuration in Linux Mint 17. The LED back lights work as expected. The keys have a nice movement too them. They also aren't loud which is important for a father that has sleeping infant in it.

Cons: One con I did find is that the keyboard didn't work with my D-Link DKVM-4 (circa 1999) with USB->PS/2 converter. Since the KVM is so old, I didn't take an egg. I could also be the convert's fault too.

Other Thoughts: One thing I did find that bit of getting used to is that the keys are slightly smaller than you standard IBM keyboard. It's not horrible but it is noticeable.

ENCORE ENUWI-1XN42 Wireless N150 Adapter, 2dBi IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

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.

Rosewill RC-103 - 4 + 1 USB 2.0 PCI Adapter (Four External + One Internal Ports)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Simple part, Simple install 08/16/2011

This review is from: Rosewill RC-103 - 4 + 1 USB 2.0 PCI Adapter (Four External + One Internal Ports)

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.
