EVGA 01G-P3-1302-LR GeForce 8400 GS 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The card's drivers installed via Windows 7 update without issue. The rebate check arrived today. The card runs at about 42 C most of the time. It passed all the Dell diagnostic tests. Ubuntu works with it without issue. For the special price and rebate, it is a very good deal. Low slot mounting hardware was included.

Cons: The fan is noisy, as others have noted. After the second week, the fan was vibrating the case. I took out the fan and squirted motor oil down the fan shaft. That seems to fix the noise issue. The fan runs at high speed until the Windows 7 desktop appears. Then, it quiets down.

Other Thoughts: I bought the card to get the HDMI connection and to replace an old ATI HD 2400 Pro. I don't know what to think about the fan, but the card has a 2-year warranty. For $9.99 after rebate, I am not too worried.

EDUP 2 x 6dBi 2in1 Client / AP Mini 300M 300Mbps USB WiFi Wireless N LAN Network Adapter 802.11 n/g/b EP-MS1552
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It works well with BOTH Windows 7 and Linux. Works fine with Ubuntu 13.10 and Fedora 20 without the need for making a new kernel.

Cons: The latest drivers for Windows 7 cannot be downloaded from the MediaTek website. The website is a joke and a corporate embarassment.
It is a large adapter, but if you need range, that is the price that you have to pay.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for the RT5372 chipset. This is really good hardware had is hobbled by bad drivers. Even with the current drivers, it performs well under a long range through walls. With Windows 7, I am getting 4 out of 5 bars (good) and with Linux 63% (good). This is better perfromance than I had with other adapters. Too bad MediaTek bought out Ralink.

Deliver from Hong Kong took 8 days and there was no tracking information after the package left HK.
It comes with a clip on attachment which may be useful for laptop users.
The USB mini-plug means you can't use standard USB extension cords.

Not pleased with Newegg's censorship of certain words. It's hard to deal with a robot.

EDUP 2dBi 2in1 Client / AP Mini 300M 300Mbps USB WiFi Wireless N LAN Network Adapter 802.11 n/g/b EP-MS1559
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Windows 7 loaded the drivers without any problem after a Windows Update.
To work on XP, you must use the drivers from the CD that comes with the stick.

Cons: I bought this because the Realtek 8192cu is supposed to work with Linux. Maybe it does, but not on my machines. The hardware is recognized but there is NO CONNECTION with the network. This is a software/driver problem and I don't have time to regen kernels to make it work. I have better things to do.

Other Thoughts: I should have bought another RT2800 USB stick. The Ralink chips have worked perfectly with Linux and Windows.
