Cons: OCZ is going out of business - good luck with warranty repairs.
This reburb has only 6 months warranty.
Other Thoughts: You need at least 3 years of warranty of OCZ, because it WILL fail 9 months after installation, trust my experience.
But even with full 3 year warranty the manufacturer will not be around any more to help you...
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-713RE N150 Easy-N-Range Extender
Pros: Might work for some WiFi devices that are compatible with RaLink chipset.
Cons: Will not work with other clients, such as Nook HD+. Nook HD+ still sees this TrendNet as a very weak signal and prefers my Cisco M20 router. When brought closer to TrendNet, Nook reluctantly connects to it instead to Cisco, however no Internet is provided (probalby IP is not provided by DNS built into TrendNet??).
Other Thoughts: Upon receiving the unit immediately download the signal strength monitoring software, such as InSSIDer, which is available for Windows and Android. This will show you if the TrendNet extender really extends anything. When I installed InSSIDer on my Nook HD+ from Google Play, it showed that even at the maximal distance between the router and the extender, the extender signal strength was comparable to the router (Cisco M20) signal strength. And M20 does not even have antennae! If moved even further, the extender will not see the router. In other words, within any working router/extender geographies, Nook sees the TrendNet signal as very weak (-60 dB) and therefore unworthy to listen to compared to the primary signal of the router.
On the other hand, maybe you are lucky and other WiFi "appliances" will have no such incompatibility issues.
Pros: Cheap, worked well for first 2 months. Now dead, but is covered by warranty. Have to pay shipping, though.
Cons: Today, after 70 days of use, the SSD is no longer detected by the motherboard BIOS and by the Windows OS. Most of my files are in the cloud anyway, but it will take a lot of time to install all the programs, restore all passwords and all Outlook e-mail.
Other Thoughts: It was a wrong decision to buy this refurb SSD.READ FULL REVIEW
