EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Inexpensive Solution 08/29/2014

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

Pros: It's tiny.
It works. I have five of them now.
The instructions as clear and installation was easy.
I didn't need to install any drivers for my Windows 8 drive.

Cons: The Internet connection I am working from is 60down and 4 up. The router is a 150N. One computer is direct, the rest are wireless (only one at a time)

The speed is puzzling. It usually gets to a 14.5 connection rate and that's it. If I use a N300 adapter, the rate goes as high as 58.

The speed isn't a big problem, its just a bit aggravating.

Other Thoughts: This is a great buy for an adapter that works as well as this one does. I have seen others that are less expensive, but once you find something that works, you tend to stick with it. This works.

Pros: This burner is fast and seems to make reliable burns. How long it will last is anyone's guess. But speed isn't everything.

Cons: One of the four that I bought was going into a machine I am putting together for my young granddaughters, which they will probably be watching movies on.

This drive will NOT be in their machine. It is WAY too loud when a movie is playing. I have been putting machines together since 1991, and I have NEVER heard a drive as loud as these things are when playing movies.

Imagine sitting on a plane as it is just flying along and you constantly hear the drone of the engines. That's this drive.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice to know who makes the various drives. It doesn't matter whose name is on them anymore, it is a chore to find Firmware updates.

WL 250GB 7200RPM 8MB Cache ATA/100 IDE PATA 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The drive seems to work fine. It is also quiet. I removed one egg because of the age of the drive.

Cons: I didn't realize that this thing was going to be a 7 year old drive. There is no way to check how many hours it has already been in use as that DATA has apparently been reset.

Other Thoughts: I guess for a backup drive it will be OK - I hope anyway.
