Pros: This badboy is pretty great. I installed a microSD card into the expansion slot and have been installing programs onto that as well as keeping a few files on there, too. I bought this to use as a dedicated machine for work. I didn't need something super powerful, I basically just use Excel/Word, but I think this thing could handle a lot more.
Cons: The keyboard ins't back lit and there is no light to indicate the CAPSLOCK. I never realized how important that CAPSLOCK indicator is.
Other Thoughts: I certainly recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Super easy to setup! I would absolutely order one of these for my mother in another state. I could talk her through setting it up over the phone; it's that easy. And the signal really is improved.
Cons: 1. CREATES A NEW NETWORK!! IT DOESN'T JUST EXTEND YOUR EXISTING ONE.
2. Only works on the low band of wireless networks. I have a dual band router and I am not able to see nor select the higher band signals.
3. There is ABSOLUTELY no room for customization. You can't name the new network, it defaults to whatever your network is already called and adds "EX" on the end.
Other Thoughts: I would not buy this again if it broke. The lack of higher band frequencies and customization leaves me wanting more. If anyone of my less-than-techy-friends says they need an extender I will likely give them this and buy myself a better one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Requires no additional power beyond the PCI slot.
The audio from for the HDMI port also comes through the PCI slot, so there is no need to run a jumper cable between your audio card and your video card.
OC versions tend to have better chips.
Cons: The only thing I don't like about this card is that it doesn't exhaust through the rear of the card, I've always felt that cards should put as much heat OUTSIDE the case as possible.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
