This review is from: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Dual Band N600 PCIe adapter, External antenna
Cons: Causes Blue Screen of Death
Very low heat tolorance
Other Thoughts: I bought one of these about a year ago, and I was happy with it... though I did start having random BDODs at the time I didn't correlate that with this network card (made several hardware changes at the same time). A couple of months ago I bought a second one for my son's computer, and then he also started having BSOD's (this was the only hardware change). After TWC upgraded my internet speed the issues increased significantly (from 1 BSOD a week to 3 a day).
I put in an old network card in my PC and the BSOD issue stopped.
I have tried several settings, and turned down the power on the card to try and correct the issue, but so far nothing has worked. As of this review I am on the latest driver available from Intel (126.96.36.199).
Pros: The card looks beautiful. It fits well in my case.
Cons: Dead on Arrival. Of course Newegg is amazing so this is heading back via RMA. If the replacement unit works I will update this review.
Other Thoughts: Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 (Bios updated to 1.8)
CPU: AMD FX-6350 Vishera 3.9GHz x6
Power Supply: Rosewill CAPSTONE-650 650W
Bios error 5 long beeps. System boots fine with a different card.
Pros: The memory was fairly priced. It worked perfectly with Win 7 x64 without problems. Worked as described.
Cons: Chip died after 3 months.. causing BSDs and random crashes. Has 'lifetime' warranty but trying to RMA through PNY has been a pain.
Other Thoughts: Replacing with other brand. Concerned about reliability issues especially after reading some other reviews.READ FULL REVIEW
