This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna
Pros: So I was a little worried about some of the reviews saying that the drivers blue-screen windows. Noting that, I took caution to not install the drivers that came in the box.
It worked fine out of the box with Windows 8.1's auto installed drivers. I then went onto Rosewill's site and installed their drivers, and they also work fine. NO blue screens. The CD inside says to go online to get Windows 8.1 drivers. I suspect people are not heeding this warning.
I got this card because I will be moving to an area that I can only get wifi. I will still have yet to see how the performance of this card is and will update. Four stars now as a placeholder till then.
Cons: Does not have the MAC address listed anywhere. This is important to me since I filter my router to only use my personal devices. I had to disable MAC filtering on my router, connect the Rosewill device, then figure out what MAC address it is using. There's a way to find it in Windows, but I forgot.
Other Thoughts: This router was definitely the right price for performance, and I have generally had good luck with Rosewill products in the past.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCDC-14036 Mini DisplayPort Male to HDMI Female Adapter
Pros: Got this for my Surface. There weren't any reviews yet when I bought this, but I've generally have had good luck with Rosewill.
It is not too bulky. Seems pretty solid. Works. Affordable.
Cons: It is possible some might find the cord a little short. Doesn't affect me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cool design. Works as a vertical stand while charging, or flip it around to lay it horizontal without directly plugging into the stand. I looked and looked for a design that I liked both on [another major online shop] and Newegg, and this looked the most appealing.
Cons: Packaged cord and stand itself do not fully charge phone. I know when I use a cheap cable when the phone breaks even on charging while on, and will only actually charge when off. This includes the stand as I plugged in a nice cord to it and got the same thing. Built-in plug on stand is also not long enough for cases.
Other Thoughts: This is one of those times when the convenience and economy of buying online was a loss. The redeeming aspect of it is that it may keep my phone from completely dying during a day of listening to music at work, as long as I am willing to take my case off every day or lay it sideways and use a better cord.READ FULL REVIEW
