TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs inexpensive and works 08/14/2013

This review is from: TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: Easy install and inexpensive GB card

Cons: none so far, but the mini-cd disk might be hard to install from with a verticle CD/DVD drive

Other Thoughts: hard to beat for the price. I haven't ran any speed tests on them, but they show a GB connection and seem faster than 10/100 cards

EVGA 512-P3-1300-LR GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 32-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: great price, good speed, dual video support

Cons: cooling fan failed after 7 1/2 months

Other Thoughts: For the price, this was hard to beat for a dual video card. It has DVI, hdma and VGA. To use the VGA port does require taking up an extra slot for the connector though

TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good fo the money 01/10/2013

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Great price, good signal strength, easy configuration. Since this 300Mbps dual-antenna model is only $5 more than the single-antenna 150Mbps speed TP-Link model, it's a great deal. Have used 25+ of these and so far no failures or DOA units.

Cons: Signal strength and speed ARE little less than some of the more expensive models I've used, but for the price it's hard to beat.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind it's only $25 when you buy it and don't expect the top-of-line performance you would get from a $300 high-end wireless router. I've been an IT tech for 25 years and have used just about everything from Linksys, Cisco (real Cisco-not Linksys!), D-Link, NetGear and others. To be fair the high end models do offer features and performance better than this one... but you pay for it.

If all you need is a simple wireless setup to surf the Internet, this one is hard to beat. Even if you buy 2 of them for different areas to get the coverage you need, that's still cheaper than a high-end router.

I've seen a lot of complaints about tech support, but honestly I've never had to use it so I can't comment on that.

But, if you're wanting a complicated setup, you shouldn't expect free training from tech support though - that's not their job. Call a local computer tech to help instead of expecting tech support to train you and do it for you for free. For a product in this price range, it's geared for a simple home user; not a business setting... and tech support is probably trained for that type of user - so don't blame them it they aren't able to help with high-end setups for a low-price product.

I've been Cisco certified for years and if I have a problem and call their tech support, they are geared for business support because their products are very expensive. I don't expect the same level of support for a $25 router that I would get from a $1,000 router.
