COUGAR CF-V12HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Quiet. Efficient. Compatible. Good mounting. Pretty.

Cons: Needs instruction in mounting the rubber mounts. Not sold (yet) on hydro-dynamic-bearing feature.

Other Thoughts: Bought hoping the higher price and well-hyped hydro-dynamic-bearing makes this fan last longer than the cheap Antec fan whose shaft froze. Time will tell. I don't require large CFM so plugged the 3-pin connector into the MB's chassis fan plug. Works great. CPU fan no longer runs at high RPM when room temp. is hot. HINT: I used silicone spray (a little wet hand soap works also) to allow the rubber mounts to pull through the fan mounting holes. Used pliers and circular motion to pull HARD on the rubber mount to get it through the fan holes. Same with mounting to case.

Western Digital WD AV-GP WD3200AUDX 320GB IntelliPower 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast. Cheap. Easy installation.

Cons: Slower (surprise) but still 5x cheaper than equivalent SSD. Hard disks fail often. This hasn't yet.

Other Thoughts: I have had good luck with WD so I stick with them. Others have not had such good luck.

TP-LINK TL-ANT2424B 2.4GHz 24dBi Grid Parabolic Antenna
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs TP-LINK makes a nice product 01/09/2013

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-ANT2424B 2.4GHz 24dBi Grid Parabolic Antenna

Pros: Solid yet light weight for a 42-INCH WIDE antenna. Well designed, easy assembly, nice handy built-in 11-inch pigtail cord and N-connector, good "gain"

Cons: No cons so far but a WARNING: this 42-INCH WIDE DIRECTIONAL antenna may be more than you need unless RX-ing across 200+ feet.

Other Thoughts: Works well for LARGE 42-INCH WIDE DIRECTIONAL antenna. Did we mention it's LARGE? 20% better gain than smaller 20-inch wide parabolic antenna and 60%+ better gain than 8-inch stick antenna. Light weight casting and proper fit makes it easy to assemble using the included bolts and hardware. This is probably overkill unless communicating across 200+ feet. You may be better off with an omni-directional antenna like TRENDnet TEW-AIO70B or one of the Hawking brand antennas.
