Pros: Very fast. Easy installation. Firmware update was simple.
Cons: Very unreliable operation, even after firmware updates.
Other Thoughts: Currently have a request in to their tech support for additional help, but I would definitely NOT recommend this drive to anyone. For almost $500, I expected error free operation out of the box and that is absolutely not what has been delivered. Seriously. Skip this drive.
Clevo P150HM (Core i7-2820QM)
Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
Pros: It has pretty lights on it...
Cons: ... everything. This thing will randomly drop connections even when I'm still at 70% or better signal strength. When I say random, I mean random. Sometimes it's a few minutes, sometimes it's a few days. But it will, I guarantee you, go out.
Signal strength is abysmal unless you feel like spending hours messing with various router settings.
I know WEP is outdated, but for people that still use it be prepared to enter the HEX string when connecting. For some reason, the router won't recognize the ascii equivalent.
Linksys support is little to no help for these issues, no new firmware update forthcoming.
Other Thoughts: Unless you feel like powercycling your router every few days, messing with router setting minutia, and fighting with poor signal strength and technical support, please look elsewhere.
It may be a little apples to oranges, but the D-Link Gamerlounge Wireless-G router at my old place was vastly superior in all respects. Wireless devices on the opposite side/floor of a 2500sq/ft house regularly received 80-90% signal strength. This hunk of junk can barely manage that 20 feet away.
