Pros: It works perfect. Build quality seems pretty good. I really like the on/off switch to turn on/off whatever you have plugged into this handy device. Has a blue power LED light and White access/read LED, which is also handy to tell if a drive is even working.
Other Thoughts: I often work on computers for family/friends, this device is very handy to have near by. For netbooks I can use this to access a dvd drive, with laptops it's nice to be able to copy over OS to a new drive/ssd. Also works great to trouble shoot stubborn HDDs that won't boot anymore, you can at least hook this up to another machine and try to salvage some files easily. Overall it's a great product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
Pros: Small, and doesn't get in the way of neighboring USB ports. Blinks blue so you know it's working.
Cons: Range is far from great. I expected it to be much better, or at least close to my other "standard size" usb wifi adapter. The added software is not for everyone. I prefer the windows default wireless utility.
Other Thoughts: The range isn't the best in the world on these, but it fulfills my needs, so I didn't knock off any eggs. I bought two of these, the one in my HTPC seems to have decent speed. I've had no issues streaming 1080p video. Speed tests show around 9 meg download which is pretty much all that I get from my cable modem. At the normal list price, I'd avoid these, but for 66% off, they are a great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plugged in and no configuration was required and these are running 1600mhz on my thinkpad.
Cons: Can't see the cool gold stickers when installed.......so none really.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded my lenovo thinkpad L420 with this 8GB kit. It had 4GB factory and with my work I was maxxing that out, so I figured it was time for an upgrade.
Now my ram usage floats around 62% usage so this did the trick for me. Not to mention its faster then the stock ram. This is running at 1600mhz for me with 9-9-9-24 timings showing. I did no configuring at all.
Windows score before was 5.9 with stock ram, this RAM boosted it up to 7.5
I can say I'm very pleased with this purchase.
