This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
Pros: Best PCI card that I tried...while it worked.
Cons: After 9 months, it loses its connection very often.
Other Thoughts: I don't mind spending extra cash; why can't someone make a reliable network card?READ FULL REVIEW
*Excellent performance while it worked
*nVidia products are generally better-optimized than AMD's offerings due to their developer relationship program
Cons: *After about 6 months, this card started getting progressively more unstable:
1)Very rarely video would temporarily give out during Starcraft II, recovering with a message like "Nvidia display driver has stopped responding and has been recovered."
2)Sometimes I would completely lose video in-game or at the desktop, necessitating a reboot.
3)Gaming performance steadily declined.
4)Today, artifacts have appeared in-games and on the desktop; this card is toast! (9 months of ownership)
Everything is in place to ensure solid performance: Stock clocks; ample power supply; plenty of ventilation, etc. Apparently I'm not alone with these issues, and purchasing this product is rather risky.
Other Thoughts: If Gigabyte releases an updated version without the reliability issues, I would wholeheartedly recommend that card. The design is quiet, fast, good-looking, and back by nVidia's excellent drivers and developer relationships. The Gigabyte brand has never steered me wrong in the past, either. Unfortunately, this particular version appears to be something of a ticking time bomb.READ FULL REVIEW
