Wavlink AC1200 Smart Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter 2.4GHz 300Mbps/5Ghz 867Mbps WPS, Support Windows XP/7/8/8.1/10 Wi-fi USB 3.0 Network LAN Card Dongle - Black

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Connected solidly to my old Linksys b/g router (WRT54GS) Wireless speed 15 Mbps is acceptable for my purposes -- Ethernet speed is 65 Mbps.) When using my notebook the router has not crashed one time.

Cons: Instructions are light. Took a bit to find a way to use the adapter with my old router.

Other Thoughts: My new notebook uses Intel's 7265-AC wireless adapter which connected with both of the AC routers I have tried while they were working. The Linksys has been rock solid for the past month and now I can connect wirelessly to it. Almost did not buy when I saw that Good Reviews were paid for and I consider them worthless, but with Newegg backing the play, I thought 'Why Not?' (Incidentally, I will not apply for or accept the "GOOD REVIEW REWARD.)

ASUS RT-AC3200 Tri-Band AC3200 Wireless Gigabit Router AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: It's fast when it works
It has great range when it works
It looks good all of the time.
ASUS tech service is easily contacted.

Cons: After receiving the router only worked briefly, then failed. Contacted my ISP and it worked briefly. After help from ASUS it worked then began failing intermittently. Over the next three weeks ASUS helped several times and each time it would work 3 to 7 days then begin failing intermittently.

Other Thoughts: I recommend a router that works like this one, when it worked. In the end ASUS decided the router could not be fixed over the phone and offered to RMA it for repairs, NOT replacement, with the return shipping at my expense. Fortunately, Newegg's 30-day from purchase warranty covered it and Newegg accept it for replacement with RMA shipping pre-paid. Thanks to Newegg I am expecting a replacement that WORKS all of the time.
Remember that the 30-day warranty, where applicable, starts the day you order any device.

Seagate ST500LM000 500GB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5

Pros: My old MX6912 Gateway laptop boots significantly faster.
The 5X larger HD capacity is much appreciated.
Installed in less than 20 minutes. (It took me longer researching how to properly open this notebook and to watch a 'How To' video.')

Cons: {{Not sure this is related, but after doing a clean install of Windows 7 I found that the DVD would not read some software (like PS-5) disks and trying to do it with a USB drive ended with Check Disk opening. I was able to re-install other software (like MS-Office).}}
I have noted occasional instantaneous screen flashes I had not been previously aware of.

Other Thoughts: After the SSHD install I opened Device Manager & saw Disk Drives listed the new drive as "ATA ST500M00-1EJ16" BUT also saw that Mass Storage Controller now has a yellow tag (Code 28). Tried to update driver, but none found online.
