Pros: Work, and works extremely well. I finally have a stable connection!
Included USB cradle works well.
Cable is long enough to place cradle anywhere withing 3-4 feet of your PC.
Cons: It's a bit large, but I expected that.
Don't order overnight shipping on Thursday nights. Product didn't actually leave the east coast until Sunday night (I live on the west coast)
Other Thoughts: Bought a 40 dollar Belkin N150 at a major retail store because I needed wireless access right away. With 2 thick walls and other wireless connected devices between my PC and the router, it was not able to hold a stable connection (despite recieving 4-5 bars) and timed out connections every 2 minutes. When it did stay connected, I was only getting 2mb downloads.
Bought a $65 wireless network extender. This helped a little and I was able to get 10mb downloads and more stability. It stopped timing out, but would still have intermittent connectivity issues which meant major lag while gaming.
Finally got this and connected directly to the router and am getting a stable 50 - 75mb download speed (wired speed is 100-120mb) and 10-11mb up (matched with wired speed!) with a 270mbps connection to the router through 2 heavy walls, about 30 feet away with tons of interference from the 20 other wireless networks in and around my building.
Pros: -Works! That's always a good sign!
-Better than Seagate!
-Fast Boot Speeds. Good for Gaming
Cons: None yet!
Other Thoughts: I'm too broke to afford a separate drive for my boot drive, especially an SSD. I needed a reliable name for my only hard drive.
The WD Blue performs really well, even compared to my older system that had SSDs. It's not going to match it, but considering I expected boot times and load times much longer than what I'm getting now, I've been pleasantly surprised. Works well with boot, storage and gaming files all on this drive together.
I'll get a seperate SSD for booting when I can afford it, but this does the job well for now.
Pros: -Worked with no problems.
-Cheaper than 1600MHz kits on newegg
-Overclocked to 2133MHz, CAS 9 with MSI OC Genie automatically! Blazingly fast!
Cons: None. Need 8GB of RAM? Get this kit!READ FULL REVIEW
