Pros: Newegg's RMA service is great as always.
Cons: Got 2 of these for my new laptop. Got sporadic errors on the first pair, so I RMA'd them. The second pair tested fine (ran memtest86+ for almost 24 hours), so I assumed I just got a bad egg.
Cut to two weeks later: I'm pulling my hair out over bizarre compilation failures and segfaults. After three hours of trying to debug gcc, I was out of ideas and decided to test the memory. Lo and behold, a 512-byte chunk is full of errors.
I understand that there will always be the occasional defect in computer hardware - that's the nature of the manufacturing process. But for a stick of RAM to test fine, and then go sour in 2 weeks? That is completely and totally unacceptable.
Other Thoughts: I will never buy G.Skill RAM again. You lost a loyal customer today.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N600UBE Wireless N600 Dual Band USB 2.0 Adapter
Pros: Using this thing plugged into a Raspberry Pi as my wireless router. Works great.
The range on this thing is amazing - I can get my wifi from a good 20 meters down the hall from my apartment.
Other Thoughts: You'll need a firmware blob for this, and probably v3.2 or newer kernel, although I don't know for sure when master support was added. USB ID 148f:3572, uses the rt2800usb driver.READ FULL REVIEW
