AZiO AWU212N Wireless Adapter 1T2R IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs exceptional, but you need a usb extender 12/15/2010

This review is from: AZiO AWU212N Wireless Adapter 1T2R IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Gets 300 mbps with a USB extender and taped to the wall facing the router

Cons: Need a USB extender, or this gets around 108 mbps max by being plugged into the back of my server

Other Thoughts: This is probably the best wireless adapter you can get, considering I recently tried a Rosewill PCI-E adapter that said it would get 300 mbps and barely got 81 mbps with two external antennaes (would also not utilize dual bands, so it was at 150 mbps max).

Rosewill RNX-N180PCe Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Revision 1.1 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: none

Cons: Only gets 150 mbps on a 300 mbps connection, while my USB adapter gets the full 300 mbps from the same exact spot, on the same PC. Apparently this uses the RTL8191SE chipset, which only supports one channel in 802.11n mode. Not a signal issue, as the actual wireless adapter setting shows 150 mbps as being the max. Also measured it with my router and the best it could do was around 164 mbps (seems to be the true max for 150 mbps connections) at 90-100% signal strength.

Other Thoughts: Unless I missed something, and I don't think I did, it seems like this should say "up to 150 mbps" and not 300. After fiddling around with it for over 3 hours and trying every driver available and hopelessly looking for a dual-band setting somewhere in the device properties, I gave up and threw it in the trash. Waste of 22 bucks.

5 out of 5 eggs nail ripper 12/02/2010

This review is from: Scythe DFS123812-3000 "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan

Pros: Pushes a lot of air, cheap, and not that loud when inside a case

Cons: none, other than it took a piece of my thumbnail and making it bleed like crazy due to me being stupid and trying to position it while it was on (jerry-rigging it since I was trying to position it to blow on a bay of hard drives without touching the wires; accidentally touched my thumbnail to the fan and the rest is history). This thing is powerful.
