Pros: Versatility for connecting. Intuitive, easy to use software.
Other Thoughts: Have been using these on my home built computers for better than a year now.
2 computers have XP and one has Windows 7.
I have all 3 of them communicating with my system in rooms that are 10 to 35 feet away from my D-Link DIR 655 router.
Have never had a connect problem or drop out with any of them.
In fact one is connected to my living room computer that I use exclusively for streaming.
Again - no problems or drop out.
Versatility is great. You can plug them into any USB port.
If room is a factor use the base with it's extension cord and place the antenna on a table top or on top of your computer.
Bottom line - They work - I highly recommend these high gain antennas.
Pros: Case is open and airy - just right for my Biostar 960D+ micro-axt motherboard. All stand offs were in place and lined up with board. The rubber isolation feet cut down on vibration noise from the power supply. I used a CORSAIR CX430 power supply and it fit perfectly. Lots of room for extra cooling fans. Drive bays are easy to access. Pop outs on the front of the case have cover panels that can be reinstalled with screws if you decide to change slot locations of DVD burners etc. Case came with a fan, screws, misc hardware, and feet.
Cons: Suggestion rather than a Con. I prefer to screw my hard drive and DVD burner into place rather than use the compression quick release system that came with the case. My preference only. You choose.
Other Thoughts: All in all very easy to work in and recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The price was right - 98 dollars - from Newegg.
I don't compare one pad to another. I try to keep an open mind as to what I want the tablet for and how I'll use it.
This tablet is responsive and has no problem connecting to WiFi hot spots or networks. It does have a "use button" connect feature which came in handy at my home since I have a 128 bit encrypted password on my network, (D-Link). At other hot spots around town I just tap the network connect button and I'm online. I've not had a problem connecting yet.
I use the tablet for gathering info when I'm out and it's also been used to find music - the speaker system is pretty good for a unit this size.
I downloaded a couple of games to try - Angry Birds for one - The graphics were good and the game played without hesitation.
Searching photos on Pinterest was o.k. as well. Graphics intense sites were also accessed and the unit responded smartly.
YouTube - No problem at all with any video playback.
Saving to the gallery was simple and recalling photos was no problem. I also have a Sandisk 32gb card in the unit for storage.
I haven't gotten to all the features yet but so far I really like this 8" tablet.
It's doing what I want it to do:
Gather info for research, photos, music, e-mail, YouTube, and a couple of mind numbing games to relax me.
Cons: I haven't found any yet except that Amazn Prime, which I have, won't work - Some other reviewer said Netflix does work so choose your poison and enjoy. I don't think Android and Amazn like each other that much ;~). Maybe in the future. But hey, that's not why I bought the pad.
Other Thoughts: This was a refurbished unit at a price I could not pass up - I received it in excellent shape - Thanks Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
