EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs No Throughput 08/28/2015

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter

Pros: Newegg's very easy return system. Being a Premier member has its perks.

Cons: This item does not provide the wireless speed it claims. While the signal strength indicates full bars, the actual throughput is around 500kpbs. This performance is unacceptable. I tried downloading the latest driver from the Edimax website but it still makes no difference. Sent back for a refund.

Other Thoughts: Using Windows 7 x64. Other brand wireless adapters work just fine however, I was hoping to get a nano size.

Silicon Power S60 3K P/E Cycle Toggle MLC 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice build quality. Speed seems good. I didn't test it however. Still working 6 months later.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I have used 3 of these so far. One in a laptop and 2 in a desktop raid 1 array. Everything is working fine. I even cloned the old OS to the new SSD hard drive without any problem.

MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s ports by AMD SB950 - Supports storage and data transfers at up to 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: An affordable motherboard with modern technology. It offers all the features you would expect to find including an UEFI bios.

Worked well with Windows 8.1 x64.

Has the ability for core unlocking in AMD processors.

Cons: Very limited UEFI. I was surprised how awkward the bios menu was to use and navigate. I'm use to Asus UEFI which is a pleasure to work with.

The form factor was weird. It thought it was ATX but the holes did not line up with the screw posts on the case. The edge of the motherboard was hanging off in mid air. I was able to mount it but it seemed to me that they were just trying to save money by making the motherboard smaller than it should be.

Other Thoughts: The core unlock tool really caused some problems. I tried using it on a Athlon II 435 but it did not succeed in unlocking the 4th core. Instead it caused the motherboard to lock up. It would not function at all. I tried removing all the components including the 2032 battery but nothing would allow the motherboard to POST. Eventually after an hour of troubleshooting it just started working for no apparent reason. Since then it has been good.
