This review is from: Habey HB-NE785H Half mini-pcie 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi module with Antenna
Pros: Nice that the antenna is included. Card was easy to setup once physically installed.
Cons: Card is not half-height as described in the description. The pictures here on newegg show the card exactly as you will recieve it, I had to cut the card down to fit my application which wasn't too difficult. Habey's website shows it as half height as well so maybe the fact that it is OEM you have to modify it. If you are using this in a full miniPCIe slot you will have no issues. However if you cut the full-size board down to half size you cannot go back to full height since there is no metal bracket as described in the description.
Other Thoughts: Even though I had to cut the board down to fit for my application it was still easy to install and setup. It is one of the few cards that includes an antenna whis is nice for a custom installation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tripp Lite B170-002-R Parallel IEEE Reversible Automatic Gold Switch
Pros: Works as expected. One of the few that didn't cause communication/junk output issues with my printers.
Cons: None so far - I bought 3 of these and all have worked great in areas that run 24/7
Other Thoughts: If you are using this to connect 2 printers to one system you might look at a USB-Parallel cable since it will save you money compared to this. If you are connecting 2 systems to one printer and LPT is your only option then this should work out great. Just remember to to get the DB25 Male-Male cables.READ FULL REVIEW
