Pros: Good range on the 2.4gHz band. Has no trouble going through a couple of walls. My PC is about 60 feet away from the router with 2 walls between it. Still have full bars. Ran speed tests with both the 2.4 wifi and with ethernet (cat 5E) on a 20Mbps connection, and it ran near identical speed tests results. Both 20Mbps. Pings results were about the same too. The 5ghz was lacking in strength though. (elaborated below) Firmware is fine. Decent features there , too. Unit doesnt get too warm.
Cons: The biggest issue is the 5Ghz band. Of course 5ghz doesnt have as much distance , but is in general faster/snappier. I have my game systems about 30-35 feet away with a wall between the router and them, and I was only getting about 60% signal strength off the 5ghz. I was expecting some loss VS the 2.4, but not that much. 2.4 strength was at 90%+ or so. (tried adjusting the antennas , but had limited improvement)
Other Thoughts: All in all, its a very good router for the price. I am happy with the purchase. It's reliable and has a good 2.4 signal strength (not the best, nor worst). The only downside is I feel the 5Ghz is a tad weaker than it should be.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this for my fiances Asus laptop. It had 4gb ram integrated, so I added this stick for a total of 8 gigs. Computer picked up on it and it went to work. Does exactly what I needed it to do.
Cons: None at all.
Other Thoughts: It's cheap and works perfect. If I even need another stick for basic use, id go with this exact one again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It ran any game I threw at it at least at medium at 30+ FPS. (aside from the witcher 2) I wish I could remember the FPS on certain games, but I moved on to another card last year. Never missed a beat in the year-plus I owned it. Highly recommended for a budget build.
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: HIS is my go to brand for GPU's. I really trust them. This card is no different.READ FULL REVIEW
