Pros: Small; self-powered; idiot-proof installation
Cons: Does indeed extend the range of my AT&T router, and shows connected on my Win7 desktop, but does not connect reliably to the Internet. If/when you get get online, the question is "How long before the connection drops?" That can be anywhere from 1-10 minutes.
Other Thoughts: Frustrating little device. I finally gave up trying to make it work, installed a really long Ethernet cable, and tossed this gadget out. End of problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
Pros: Small. Very small. Plus into any convenient USB port. Installed seamlessly with supplied CD.
Cons: Range seems limited. It will not pick up my router from 20 feet if the computer case was in the way: I had to use a front USB port. Also, on occasion it connects but transfers data at an extraordinarily slow rate (feels like 4 bits/sec). The cure for that is to unplug and replug it.
Other Thoughts: I've bought a handful of these adapters and like them a great deal, but they are fussy about getting enough signal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This is unquestionably the best mid-tower I've ever purchased. Both sides come off, with thumbscrews. The power supply (not included) fits on the bottom, enhancing stability. Fans on top and rear move a lot of air, and if extra air is needed one or two fans can be mounted in front.. The metalwork is burr- and sharp-edge free. A bag of hardware is included, with a handful of plastic ties. Overall, a real gem.
Cons: None, other than the fact it wasn't free.READ FULL REVIEW
