Pros: Asus name, thats about it.
Cons: Poor range, 15 feet from router and only 2-3 bars of signal
Slower speeds than a single band laptop in the same house, that was 30 feet away.
Worked for 2 months and died a slow death.
Other Thoughts: After a month I had sporadic connection drops that self healed. After 2 months, while playing titanfall on pc, the connection dropped over and over before complete disconnection. Now it will not connect to any wireless networks even though it can detect them.
While still on, my new Linksys Ea3500 router was having a heart attack and the network in the house was frozen. Many attempts to restore the router were fruitless until I disconnected this pc from the network. Once I took it down, everything was right as rain.
This may be asus made, but it is garbage. I originally bought it along with an Asus N600 dual band router, but the router died a month ago and this card died a month later.
Do not touch Asus networking hardware. They use to be great but now are unreliable, poorly made, and the software is awful. The return shelf at "the store" was absolutely filled with asus network gear when I returned the asus router for the Linksys. Steer clear!
Pros: Purchased 2 sticks (2Gb) back in 2009 and they have been excellent! Slapped them in a old compaq laptop and they brought it back to life. My 10 year old uses it constantly, takes it with him to his grandparents every weekend, and games on it regularly.
Never had a problem with G.Skill, except for DOA sticks that occur during shipment with any brand.
Cons: They make me expect more from life.
Other Thoughts: G.Skill makes excellent memory. This is not no-name-junk, or low-end-junk with a name.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have always avoided ThermalTake products as I usually found them high on form, low on function. This case has really won me over and I plan to buy another for my next rig. I have never had a build go together so easily and so well.
-Excellent ventilation with foam filters included
-Included 120mm fan is fairly quiet
-Bottom mount power supply slot
-Sturdy, and surprisingly well built. Great Finish!
-Plenty of room for a standard ATX board and all the goodies. Nice and wide too.
-Quick connect drive bays
-Fit my Corsair H50 water cooler
Cons: -I found it much cheaper ($39.99) elsewhere, down the street. The NZXT Gamma is a good substitute on Newegg.
-Had to move the included fan to a top spot to make way for my neato cheato water cooler.
-It had led lights on the fan, so I had to kill them. I was all like, "Shhhh....it's ok....it's ok...snap". Really, I can't stand Batman and Robin flashy seizure cases. Most people will not mind as this one is fairly dim and blue.
-It never noticed I shaved my legs, so I ate a whole cheesecake while watching "The NoteBook". I don't even like cheesecake!
