Cons: I'm an experienced tech with over 30 years experience. This is easily the worst board I've ever purchased, that worked. First, booting is default to AHCI. If you are doing an upgrade from IDE format this can corrupt your drive installation requiring a wipe and reinstall. Second, the sound out plug does not work, period. I'll need to purchase a separate sound card. The board was sitting in a box for a month before install so I'm beyond the registration period, apparently. Actually, that's what I'm doing on the site right now, buying a stand alone sound card. Software that comes with the board is primarily bloatware, designed to slow down your bootup sequence and generally drag the system down.

Pros: Cheap, and not in the good way.
Cons: I am receiving failure immenent in just over a month of use.
Other Thoughts: I had never purchased a Hitachi drive for my own use as a separate item. I've seen them as standalone or in laptops or desktops folks have brought to me for repair and must say they are uniquely difficult to work on. Shame on WD for allowing this product line to darken their name.
In response to the other poster here who does not like Newegg packaging - I can say I haven't had any complaints. They've always been at least double bubble wrapped, which I think should get through most shipping conditions. This particular drive I purchased from an in-store source in original packaging.
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7722UTn N300 USB 2.0 Mini-size Wireless Adapter
Pros: One worked! I have an exender that will work with a replacement of a different brand!
Cons: One didn't work! It did work, for about three months, that is. Then it died. A second identical adapter still works just fine in the computer in any usb port.
I used the adapter on a desktop computer. At first I had it plugged into a back usb port and it worked fine. When it started getting glitchy I moved it to a front port. No good.
I used the USB extention hardwire cable that came with it. No good.
I placed the adapter to stand up so it would help the built-in antenna face directly to the wireless router to increase the throughput. No good.
Other Thoughts: I'm cheap and so is this adapter. You roll the dice, you gamble, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose... "Pretty red and thorny flower + opposite of won't" adapter sale, here I come!!READ FULL REVIEW
