This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N150 Wireless USB Adapter - WLI-UC-GNHP
Pros: Worked for just under one year. Bought 09/21/13; today is 09/17/14. Worked well for when it did, and I got a pretty good signal.
Cons: Turned on the computer today and cannot find the device. Tried different slots; looks dead to me.
Round design makes it bulky and blocks adjacent usb slots.
Pros: I got it for about a hundred, and it's plug-n-play. What more to say? Instant upgrade.
Cons: None really. It's 1333? not noticeable to me anyway.
Other Thoughts: I use Adobe, McNeel, and Audodesk software simultaneously and I've not maxed out the 16GB yet so I'm happy with this upgrade. Closest I've gotten was 13GB.
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X Extreme 120mm CPU Cooler with Worlds first PWM Fan Speed Controller
Pros: This cooler has lasted me since 2009 and has run fine on two AMD set ups since. It is dead silent, and pretty efficient. No problems.
Cons: REALIZE THERE IS BAD and MINIMAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT. The number on their website goes to their office in Korea. After a lengthy Korean recording I can't understand anyway, it hangs up on you. And emails suggest they don't understand English.
Other Thoughts: I didn't want to reduce eggs because it is a good cooler and Newegg hasn't let me down.
However, don't expect to find any Zalman support. Look online and you'll see this is not an uncommon issue.
In my case, I need a mounting bracket/clip for LGA 1155 for my new build, which didn't come with the cooler (in 2009), and their email reply was "Yes. 1156 and 1155 has the exact same dimension." My second email clearly stating I need a 1155/1156 bracket seems to have gone ignored. I'm tired of waiting for a late and probably unhelpful email and I'm not wasting money on international calls that disconnect you. I'm glad the cooler I bought has been a champ this whole time, but I'd rather drop some cash and just buy a new cooler from another manufacturer with better support for the long run.
