Pros: It is small and uses little electricity.
Cons: I mounted on the back of my monitor (I am satisfied with the mount. It is not that loose.), and it runs very hot. It runs between 70-93. I drilled about 10 holes on the cover near the fan, and it probably lowered 1 degree or so. I took if off the mount and put it on the table, and it was still going over 90 degrees. It runs HOT when i am watching hulu. Other tasks are OK.
My microsoft RF mouse has some lag on this computer whereas it is fine with my 4 core fast computer.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am happy with the purchase.
BTY, when I reversed the antenna wires (just as the reviewers said), the reception got much worse. Yes, I checked the colors of the wires.

This review is from: Tenda P200 Powerline Mini Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps
Pros: It worked out of box.
Love the clean look.
Cons: No cons
Other Thoughts: It worked right out of box. It is a plug-n-plug device without any installation on your computer. I became ambitious and decided to put a router at the other end instead of a computer. It took me all day to figure out correct settings on the routers, but it was worth it. We will see how long this will last.READ FULL REVIEW
Potential to be used with fast CPU.

Here is instruction on how to install Ivy Bridge Processor
Cons: No cons
Other Thoughts: I bought this on Black Friday sale. I just bought without any plans to build a computer. I like to think that I may one day buy a CPU and make it into a working computer. Just incase, I wanted to put in an ivy bridge cpu, I inquired about it and here is the reply from FOXCONN (in a couple of days) . The instruction is written as if I have a H67 motherboard, but they subsequently told me they use the same bios.
1.If you want to using an Ivy Bridge processor,you need update BIOS to the latest version C33F1P01.
Please download it from next link as below.
