Intel Network 7260.HMWWB.R WiFi WIRELESS-AC 7260 H/T 2X2 AC 867 Mbps+ Bluetooth HMC Dual Band Brown Box
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works fine with Black Lab Linux. I'm getting around 650m steady. Intel's drivers work pretty good, had to tweak it a little. Since BLL is based off of Ubuntu and Debian it should work fine on those 2 distro's and others based off of them. Worked on a Toshiba Sat. D355-s7901.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Driver support is getting much better for Linux. I would recommend trying Linux. There are a few distro's out that are designed just for people who uses Windows. It doesn't spy on you like Win10, and if you think you can turn it off check out MS answer to that question.

Cooler Master NotePal X-Slim - Ultra Slim Laptop Cooling Pad with 160 mm Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It fits my 17" Toshiba. I cooled down my hot Dual-Core RM-72 to about 66 degrees from around 79 degrees. Its not to loud, moves a good amount of air.

Cons: O lets see, to be picky the usb plug feels alittle on the cheap site.

MSI R9 280 GAMING 3G 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Better hope you don't need to RMA 05/11/2015

This review is from: MSI R9 280 GAMING 3G 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: When they work they rock. Looks good and performs great. Until don't

Cons: I'm on my 5th RMA for the same card thru MSI. The cards they replace them with are not tested, they couldn't be. They send other failed card and I guess they hope you get frustrated and stop trying to get one that works or they do you like this till the warranty expires. MSI have steadily moved up in there offerings. This reminds me of what happened to ABIT (remember them). I guess MSI has taken a page from ASUS's book. I've been building computers for a very long time and I am just tired of companies putting out produces and not standing behind them. 3 of the "Replacement" cards wouldn't even display any thing.

Other Thoughts: Maybe its time to contact the State's attorney and file a complaint. I have with the BBB but since they don't belong to them there's not much going to happen. I have 2 MSI motherboards and 4 MSI video cards but not any more. I guess I'll go with Gigabyte for all my next builds. Its just a shame. I've posted more details on OCN so hopefully no one else gets burnt
