ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great on Linux...eventually 08/22/2013

This review is from: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: After figuring everything out, it gets 300mbps and I can stream 1080p just fine

Cons: Took a while to setup on Linux

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my HTPC that runs xubuntu. The adapter was recognized instantly when I plugged it in, but it did not work for more than a few minutes without disconnecting, and even though i was only 20 feet from the router and through one thin wall I could not get more than 150mbps. I did some googling (unfortunately I cannot share the link on neweggs review site), and the default driver that the linux kernel uses for this does not work right. I found the correct driver online and blacklisted the default one and the adapter has worked perfectly since then.

LOGISYS Computer AC2200 92mm Hydro CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Quiet, but not amazing 08/22/2013

This review is from: LOGISYS Computer AC2200 92mm Hydro CPU Cooler

Pros: This thing is definitely quieter than the stock AMD cooler. It was also super easy to install since it uses the stock cooler bracket on the motherboard.

Cons: My CPU is a few degrees warmer than it was with the stock cooler, even though they appear to be running at similar RPMs.

Other Thoughts: This is on an AMD X2 4600+

SanDisk ReadyCache SDSSDRC-032G-G26 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great as a boot drive for Linux 08/22/2013

This review is from: SanDisk ReadyCache SDSSDRC-032G-G26 2.5" 32GB SATA III for Windows 7 and Windows 8 -based PCs

Pros: I am using this as a boot drive for my media pc running xubuntu and this SSD is perfect for that. Booting takes about 10 seconds (5 if you don't include the BIOS), even though it's plugged into a SATA II port.

Cons: I don't understand why this is explicitly marketed as not being a boot device, it works fine.

Other Thoughts: I still think 32GB SSDs are a little steep. I could have gotten a 500gb hard drive for the same price but I was concerned about noise with my HTPC setup.
