Pros: Two fan controls. Plenty of USB 3.0 ports. Reads just about every card that's out there.
Cons: A bit pricy for a pretty flimsy machine. The USB 3 port arrived out of line, had to pop the front cover open and try to realign it myself. The LED temp reading is cool, but you pretty much need to be eye level to read it, from any other angle, the numbers look like 888. If your computer is not sitting on your desk, then you should be okay. But if it's on the floor like me, get ready to contort to read your CPU's temp. The manual is convoluted, and not unit specific. If this is your first rodeo and you're not that familiar with computer component installation, the manual with confuse you more than help.
Other Thoughts: Not bad, so far, does the job, but if returns was easy and not a hassle for everybody, I would send this back and get a refund. But since I don't really have the time, it does what it's supposed to do. Let's just hope it last.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7438RPn Mini N300 Mini Wi-Fi Extender/Access Point/Wi-Fi Bridge
Pros: Works well. Relatively easy to set up. Good price.
Cons: Lasted a little over a year. 13 months to be exact.
Other Thoughts: I can see why Newegg doesn't really sell these anymore, you have to find it in the Marketplace. I wouldn't say this model is junk per se, just that it doesn't really seem to last. $50 for a year's worth is all that Edimax can afford for you to though without giving them more money. Month 13, it stopped working. Orange power light never changes after turning it on and waiting a few minutes to cycle and boot. Usually starts with no problems for me. I also tried to reset to factory setting by keeping the WPS button pressed for at least 10 seconds or more. Nothing. I see the price is now half of what I paid, another red flag that they are trying to dump this model. Save your money and get something with a better track record, unless $25-$30 is ok for you to invest into something that will only last about a year.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive, portable, low maintenance, "Plug and Play" system.
Cons: Because it's cheap, you get what you paid for. Lasted 3 months
Other Thoughts: I'm giving it two eggs instead of one is because for what it is, this device works really well and does the job to give you some peace of mind as a poor man's door alarm. But it is obviously poorly build and not built to last. Used it for about 3 months before it just constantly beeping. The alarm is always on. Had to take out the batteries to make it stop. I guess you can't always trust the Rosewill name.READ FULL REVIEW
