Pros: Very fast, low profile, strong connection cuts through the internet like butter
Cons: The card disconnects from the internet for up to 10 seconds when I'm surfing the web. This happens every hour or two. After setting the card to connect to the internet through windows, it still kept on disconnecting, but not as often. The card's connection also drops down every once in a while, which slows down it's performance dramatically, but after tweaking the antennas a bit, it goes back up to flawless connection.
Another thing that I've noticed is that the packaging is not secure, so the card is going to be bouncing around in the box when it is shipped.
One last, but the biggest problem with the card is that after the first week of using the card, it started to freeze my computer. I found that at least one or twice a week my computer would freeze at night at random times. I can't even CTRL ALT DELETE when it freezes. Whenever I try to download large files (20+mb) the freezing occurs more often. After the download is done or paused, the freezing would stop. I've tried checking all of my parts and see if they are malfunctioning, but concluded that nothing was wrong. I've tried my best on researching this topic and I never found a working solution. I remember I had a USB wireless adapter and it worked perfectly fine. No freezes, no internet lag, nothing, but it was 6x slower than this card, so I doubt that the problem has to do with any of my other pc components.
This review is from: BitFenix Shinobi Window Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Looks nice, easy to install things into it, good for airflow
Cons: The front panel flies off when you pull it out, but that's not a big issueREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works fine
Cons: It was very hard to install the cpu cooler and the PSU plug on the motherboard. I had to use lots, and i mean lots, of pressure just to install these simple items onto the motherboard. My fingers were in pain for about 3 days because of this.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that there is no USB 3.0 front panel supportREAD FULL REVIEW
