ASUS PCE-N53 Dual-Band Wireless-N600 Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 300Mbps downlink+300Mbps uplink Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 1) Easy install and use with Windows 7.

2) Small footprint doesn't take up much room inside the PC case.

Cons: 1) The 5GHz chip died after about a year of owning this card. I was forced to connect to the 2.4GHz network on my router along with all of my other home wireless devices, which isn't a huge deal but I liked to have my PC on the 5GHz spectrum to keep my HD video streams uninterrupted.

2) Now after about a year and a half of use, the 2.4GHz is maxing out at about 2-3Mbps download and .15 Mbps upload. I know this to be an issue with the card because all of my other wireless devices in the house are just fine (bandwidth wise) and only my PC is affected.

I will be recycling this card and buying a different one. Absolute garbage and waste of money.

NETGEAR WNDR3700-100NAS Wireless Gigabit Open Source Router/ USB port Rangemax 2.4/5GHz Simultaneous N600 Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This router was easy to set up and get running when I got it in my hands. It shouldn't be too hard for an average user to get going without a hitch.

Cons: This router (I got a v3) flaked out after 3 months of use. One morning I was using my wifi on my phone and laptop no problems, that same night I came back from work and my wifi was not connection. I saw the power light was "orange". I restarted, rebooted, tried to reset, and did everything suggested in forums to jump start this thing. No go. This thing is bricked.

Other Thoughts: Look like it's back to old faithful (WRT54GL with Tomato) for the time being. I'll be staying away from Netgear for my next router purchase.

Antec Performance II SX1040BII Black Steel SOHO File Server Computer Case 400W SmartPower ATX12V including Pentium 4 SL400 Power Supply
  • Owned For:

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This case is absolutely wonderful. I have been using it for more than a year (14 months, to be exact) and nothing has gone wrong with it.

The provided Power Supply, all though not top of the line, hasn't had a hiccup since first bootup. This is very nice, considering I am running the following:

2 optical drives
a power demanding video card (9800-XT)
2x80GB hard drives
4x80mm fans + 1 92mm tornado fan over my CPU.

The size of the case is huge, and very roomy for all of your components to fit inside and plenty of extra room to tuck all of those un-used cables :). Airflow is great, because my case temp never rises 5 degrees celsius of its ambient temperature(room temp), even under heavy Overclock or after hours of gaming.

I will definitely buy from Antec again. They make top notch, quality cases.
