Pros: We actually have the taller version (full height bracket) which has the same specs and performs very well.
Antenna picks up a pretty good signal if you're in range of the router and don't have too many walls in between.
Reception is steady and stable with no noticeable dropouts.
Cons: Earlier reviews referenced the bracket not fitting correctly, and the manufacturer stating they can supply a corrected version of the bracket. Have they incorporated that newer bracket into the packaging or do you still have to request that they send you one? I would say at this low price it wouldn't matter to wait a few extra days for them to send a bracket.
Other Thoughts: Consider the price-to-performance comparison of this wi-fi adapter. You can get one of those tiny no-name USB wireless adapters for about $7.99 to $12.99 and they work OK if you have a strong wi-fi signal. Or, you can get this adapter with its low-profile bracket at a lower price and its antenna will definitely outperform the tiny USB models, especially where your wi-fi signal isn't as strong. That makes this little Trendnet N150 a cool bargain.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Over two years of regular use, no problems.
Works OK when connected to USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
Works OK when connected to a variety of PCs plus a laptop running (at different times over a two-year period) Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Windows 8/8.1 Pro 64-bit and Windows 10 64-bit.
Stable 90MB/s - 100MB/s when copying several GBs of large video files. Goes faster on some files, too.
When copying mixed files such documents, music and photos the speed varies a lot. This is normal as folder and sub-folders structures must be recreated and small files transfer always more slowly than large files. But the file saving or copying remains very stable.
Convenient size to carry in your pocket.
Cons: Short cable, but all portable drives seem to have this.
Convenient encryption feature doesn't really prevent determined hackers. Suggest using software encryption of files on your computer before you transfer them to this portable drive. The free file compression utility program called 7-Zip includes a quick and easy method of encrypting any file before you send it.
Other Thoughts: We've used this WD My Passport 2TB around the house with several different PCs plus our laptop. It holds movies, a music collection, bunches of photos and backup copies of Windows. It has never glitched or failed in any way, so we can recommend it for reliable use wherever you need it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Virtually silent during normal use. If you put it under heavy load the fan comes on and gradually speeds up but remains pretty quiet until you reach almost full power output.
Extremely low voltage ripple and no sagging when under load make this a top choice as a long lasting power supply. Totally stable power delivery.
Modular cables attach snugly for solid connections.
Reasonably efficient even at 10% of its rated 750-watt output so you're not wasting electricity even when it's idling.
Cons: Modular cables are perfect length for most mid-tower cases but, depending on motherboard layout and location of the power supply (top or bottom of case) , a little more length on the cables would be nice. If in doubt about your case, contact Seasonic support.
Other Thoughts: For consumer use Seasonic has always been a premium brand. Catching one of these on sale means you get top quality for around the same price as lesser brands so why not get the benefit of very stable power in a very longlasting unit? We have both the 550-watt and the 850-watt versions, and they have the same quality as this one.READ FULL REVIEW
