XMI Black 3.5mm Capsule Speaker X-Mini II
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs 02/21/2012

This review is from: XMI Black 3.5mm Capsule Speaker X-Mini II

Pros: Very small
Decent sound

Cons: None, as long as you know what you're getting

Other Thoughts: Got this to stave off the boredom 8 hours alone in a forklift can cause. Works well in conjunction with my Galaxy Nexus, and has decent volume and sound quality given its small size. For what it is, and what I paid for it, I am very happy with it.

D-Link DWA-556 Xtreme Desktop Adapter IEEE 802.11g/n PCI Express
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Works great 02/21/2012

This review is from: D-Link DWA-556 Xtreme Desktop Adapter IEEE 802.11g/n PCI Express

Pros: Easy setup
Great connectivity
Worked fine in Windows 7 64-bit

Cons: I can see where, depending on your setup, the 3 antenna could cause a lot of clutter.

Other Thoughts: A lot of other reviewers said that they had problems with Windows 7, specifically the 64-bit version. Regardless I decided to give this card a shot and had absolutely zero issues. I'm not sure what steps other people took to install the card. My version of Windows 7 is fully up-to-date and I used only the drivers on the install CD, not any of the proprietary software it came with. Have had an excellent and completely stable wifi connection ever since installation. I'm very happy with this card.

BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit Wireless Router - WZR-HP-G300NH
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good design
Great reception (when I had it)

Cons: Cheap plastic shell
Unstable connectivity

Other Thoughts: Not a good showing for my first piece of Buffalo equipment. Both wired and wireless connections would lose access to the network though when I had a wireless connection it was top notch. I couldn't maintain a stable connection for longer than 20-30 minutes at a time. Had no choice but to RMA this item and I will probably go with a brand I am more familiar with. I've dealt with a lot of network equipment over the years and this was the worst experience I've had with setup yet. Regardless of whether this was truly a bad product or simply defective it has, unfortunately, put me off of Buffalo for a while.

All other pieces of equipment on the network were able to connect to other routers, and straight into my modem with no issues what so ever.
