XFX Core Edition R7-250A-ELF4 Radeon R7 250 4GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Price
Low Profile
Most Powerful Card at this Wattage
Great performance.

In all honesty, I was surprised, I did not expect this device to perform as well as it does. I put it into a Dell Studio SFF PC with a 260 Watt PSU and it has had little to no issues (granted I am also using a single SSD in order to limit power consumption).

Switching out the front plate was a simple process - simply needed the right sized socket bit (you will need to do this yourself).

instructions are easy as is the installation, and it fit surprisingly well, but that is likely going to change depending upon your case design.

Cons: None that I can see.
Newegg states that minimum power supply is 400watt... honestly this is wrong. I have the device working in a 260 watt unit with excellent performance results.

Other Thoughts: Outside of the PSU requirements being marked incorrectly (i may be overloading the PSU but I assume that by now, 4 months later, I would have run into some power related issues such as shut downs/hangs/or just that lovely "POP" that can occur from time to time).

The card performs very well for the size and chip. Runs Diablo III, World of Warcraft, and SOTR at medium to high settings on 1080p without any issues (device is connected to a large flat screen TV as primary monitor).

FPS is not sky high but I have never seen it dip below 30fps yet.

If you want to push your SFF desktop device to the maximum speed that it can go, buy this card! It is the fastest you'll get for this wattage.

Intel Network 7260.HMWWB.R WiFi WIRELESS-AC 7260 H/T 2X2 AC 867 Mbps+ Bluetooth HMC Dual Band Brown Box
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Fast (when working)
- Solid connectivity (when working)
- Does reach AC Speeds

Cons: Previous to the most recent driver updates there was a slight issue with maintaining a solid connection at AC levels. It would fail-over to N or G MIMO speeds from time to time without a major impact, but I can actually tell when I fail over to G speeds because my WAN is 101mpbs down... so it is agitating.

Most recent Driver updates resolved this issue... but typical for the drivers for this device (the first drivers were even worse, not being able to maintain a connection to my AC router without some serious playing with settings) another issue cropped up. Now when going out of stand-by mode the device fails, meaning I need to disable and re-enable the device every time I close the lid of my laptop.

Worse is Intel's complete lack of support. Forum users see very little response from Intel and usually have to wait for driver updates... which unfortunately will fix one issue and cause another.

Other Thoughts: I really am saddened to see this low level of a product offered by such a highly respected tech giant. I expected Intel quality and honestly I did not get it when I bought this device.

I am at least happy that now I have much more reliable speeds with my wifi, but the fact that the device fails upon opening up my laptop lid has basically led me to seek out a competitors product, likely something from Killer.

BitFenix Spectre LED Green 230mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner

3 out of 5 eggs DOH!!! 03/03/2014

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre LED Green 230mm Case Fan

Pros: update to my previous review, pros remain the same, SEE CONS!!!

Cons: ***UPDATE**

do not plug the LED into the provided molex connection. The fan came with no manual (thus the loss of an egg) and apparently I could have damaged the fan/fan controller. Luckily this fan performed fine and I removed the molex connection and placed the loop back into place.

everything is good... could have turned out worse

Other Thoughts: only issue is the lack of a manual. The LED loop can be removed in order to connect to a fan controller to toggle the LED on and off... in all honesty I see why this would be wanted but it could have been better indicated. Heck even something on the wire saying: "only plug into compatible fan controller" would have been good.
