Pros: Great airflow and will keep your CPU cooled if you use the Corsair Hydro Series CPU coolers. These are 120mm and there is two on this package.
Cons: The price is very expensive for fans but this fans are really good, I bough some more for my case, I now have 6 install in my case. There is some noise but I rather have them humming and knowing they are working than constantly checking on them to make sure if they are still doing there job. There is no long screws to screw these to my case so I had to buy them separate which means more money.
Other Thoughts: buy them, they are awesome.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Super slim and very small, perfect for a small factor computer or a self build media console device. I love how it comes with both small factor pc and a regular bracket. Price is not bad either for a card that does the job. Transfer rates differ depending on your connection speed and locations but it wasn’t a huge delay that made it a big deal after all it is a low profile NIC card. Installation on Windows 7 was easy but you will need to go to the website for Windows 8 drivers because they are not in the CD even though it says it should but I might have gotten a wrong disc. It has 2T2R MIMO technology, so yeah welcome to the future of connectivity for only $25 bucks.
Cons: Not a Dual Band or AC device but you can’t beat the price for your basic low profile NIC card. The Antennas are small and don’t look great but if you update them to better 7dpi ones now it looks awesome. Not being Windows 8 friendly makes it harder with a not so friendly operating system as it is. Speed depends on your file size anything between 3GB is a bit sluggish anything below that is ok.
Other Thoughts: This card is easy to install for Windows 7 but not Windows 8. The factor works for someone who is looking for a NIC card that needs to fit in a tight space, especially if you have bulky video cards. Antennas need to be updated to different ones if you want your friends to stop making fun of your small antennas coming from your bad /-\55 computer. I would recommend this card to anyone with a budget but also that needs a reliable card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Wireless Dual Band AC600 Mbps USB Wi-Fi Network Adapter (DWA-171)
Pros: This item works well with the D-Link Wireless AC750 Dual Band Cloud Router, so if you want to experience a faster connection that what you have this application with the router mention above will fix your problem. This adapter is very light and not to small so if you drop it you will be able to locate it. You will be able to connect with both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz frequencies especially if you have reception problems. Installation is a breeze, especially with Windows 8; I don’t think I had to install the driver for this thing. Also connecting to the router using the WPS button made it even better since I have a huge password, there is a lot of WI-Fi thieves in my area.
Cons: The price, I wish it was 29.99 but can’t argue since I got it for free. This device works great with other routers but since you’re paying that high price for that high solid connection and the only way to obtain it is if you buy that AC750 Dual Band router for an extra $80 bucks or any other Dual Band Router. So if you just need to get a replacement Wireless USB Adapter and your router is still a 2.4 GHz don’t get this one unless you’re going to invest in converting your old router too.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this item to anyone, it works like it should, and the size is perfect. Especially if you lose all your small computer components, like I do. Works great with other routers so compatibility is not an issue but if you want to get that extra juice you need to update your current router.READ FULL REVIEW
