EDIMAX EW-7288APC 11AC (5GHz Band only) Range Extender / Add-on Station, to Extend / Add 11AC Wi-Fi Signal for Faster and Cleaner Connection
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This router offers a very fast connection when you are nearby. I am using it in a dorm room so I only need something that serves a radius of about fifteen feet, and this works great for that. I am getting the same quality on WiFi that I was getting on the ethernet connection beforehand.

Cons: Setup is a little finicky at first, for example I couldn't access the admin page after actually adding it to the network. Also, like I said, the range is great when you're close. Once I move about two rooms away the signal doesn't even register on my phone. This may be because of the dorm situation, but I am the only 5 GHz band, and the school wifi reaches the entire floor from one central access point.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this for somebody who needs something that they can just plug in and use for a small setting, such as a dorm room, or perhaps for adding WiFi to a gaming system instead of running an ethernet cable. If you need something for full house coverage, I would definitely upgrade to a full AC router with a lot more power

BFG Tech 9 GeForce 9800 GT DirectX 10 BFGE981024GTGE 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It ran good for maybe a year at the most

Cons: It begins to run hotter and slower after about a year to 18 months

Other Thoughts: I bought this card almost 2 years ago, so I could run a game that I got for christmas. I originally put it in a Dell Dimension 5150, Pentium 4 Processor, Single core, 2.4GHz. I bought it for $150 from Dell, and realized the thing is only worth like 90 bucks. Problem 1 starts right there. It may have said low power, but it ended up frying the PSU in that computer, and we have since bought a new one. That was 6 months ago. I took the card out, got it tested, and it still was OK to use. I put it in my Gaming Computer that I built, and it worked great for about a month. That was when things really went downhill. It would run close to 80 Degrees C, and it would not even run the game I originally bought it for. The Game required at least a 128MB card, this is a 1GB. I used to be able to play FSX on Ultra Graphics, but now I can barely run it on low. This is not a processor issue, I have a 3.2 GHz Dual core in my system. I ran a benchmark today, and it ran 6FPS and it hit 100C. Thats boiling.
