This review is from: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Dual Band N600 PCIe adapter, External antenna
Pros: Stuffed it in a PCI Express x1 slot wasn't noticed swapped to a PCI Express x16 slot fired up no problema. Used my old connection to down the driver from the Intel site (who others with CD's these days)? Previously the strongest RSSI signal I could get was a wavering 28 ~ 32% now that SSID is pegged @ 98% solid as a rock.
Cons: I didn't purchase this product sooner.
Other Thoughts: It seems like the speeds in the 5 gig band are going to be adequate for quite some timeREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is passively cooled, (the HS is cute) in this day and age of billion watt video cards that's novel? It has barely enough power to play 1080p? oh yeah and you can stuff it in a PCI slot.
Cons: Do not purchase this card unless you are certain it will be compatible with your hardware. And how can you do that you may ask? Well you can't! I tried this in two motherboards: 1st a Intel BOXD945GCLF Intel Atom 230 and an MSI K9A2 Platinum The card exhibits what can only be best described as a memory corruption issue. It acts like the board wants the BIOS to allot hardware memory to the card (which can't happen) then none of the NVidia drivers (nor the Micro$oft WDDM driver) is set to handle this. Then as the OS pages virtual memory the non-protected RAM gets overwritten and the driver crashes. Zotac support is zero help the rep says: load the driver. cool idea Sahib I'll get right on that :P I've observed many other users complaining of this same issue.
So yeah pass this on by guys
Other Thoughts: to bad I tarried and tried to troubleshoot this I would have demanded a refund but I've not once ever done that since I began buying from NewEgg a decade ago currently this is out of stock best to leave it that way ;)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Purchased Nov 2008 has been in continuous use since then. Never had an issue, it will outlast its usefulness. I have an OCZ SSD as my boot drive and this provides storage.
Cons: None at all manREAD FULL REVIEW
