ASUS VS248H-P Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice design, easily mounted

Cons: The colors are terrible. They skew heavily to the blues, leaving images looking sharp but washed out.
NOT a good monitor for photography, photo-editing, or any precise image work!

Other Thoughts: I'm buying something other than ASUS to replace this.

Rosewill RNX-AD7D – Directional, High Power / Gain, True 7dBi Dual-Band Network Antenna – A Directional Amplifier for Your Routers
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small size, can bend and rotate to adjust the angle.

Cons: Does not have label saying which side is front--see other review for info.

Trying to use in an apartment, to aim the signal through a bathroom (metal in walls) and a refrigerator.
Used a program to measure signal strength in the living room.
Spent 30 minutes adjusting angle & direction, relative angle & location of the router's other antenna, switching antenna ports, and repositioning the router itself. Provides 10% less signal than stock antenna. Has occasional signal drops that stock antenna does not.

Other Thoughts: The antenna can bend and rotate, but not enough. You may have to reposition your router.

I wish I tried this out during the 30 day return period. Now I can't return or exchange it.

BlueWay N9000 Wireless USB Adapter - High Power, Long Range, USB, WiFi 150Mbps - with Wifi Antenna 5dbi, Wifi Decoder
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Native driver support in Windows and Linux. Works immediately.
Includes a bootable WEP and WPA cracking CD.

Cons: Does not work well.
The internal wifi card in my laptop detects 23 nearby wifi networks. The N9000 detects 8.

It fails as a "long range" adapter.

Other Thoughts: Tested in Linux Mint and Win7.
Changed iwconfig power save: off in Linux. Didn't make a difference.
