This review is from: LINKSYS WUSB6100M Next-Gen AC AC600 Mu-Mimo USB Adapter
Pros: -Great Range
-Alternate install media
The range on this is device is very good. It was able to access my wifi from the opposite side of my house (1400 sq ft), which most mobile devices are unable to do. The speeds were good and stayed consistent throughout my testing (see other thoughts). Dual band wifi is almost a must for me now, so it always makes me happy to see it on devices – keeping my performance machines on 5GHz band while my other devices stay on 2.4 seems to work very well in my house. I am glad it comes with an install CD as the plug and play feature did not work for me (Windows 10 - 64 bit).
Cons: -A little bigger than I would like
-Plug and Play did not work
This device is a great size to use on a desktop that you want to have wireless on – but for a laptop I think it is a bit too big as I could see it easily getting hit and either breaking or destroying the USB port. The Plug and Play feature did not work for me on Windows 10 – and seems to be a common problem. But they do include an install CD as well as a link to the download file so that it can be installed easily still.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great device. I am very happy with the range, reliability so far, and the speeds. During my testing I got around 24 MB/s on the 5GHz and 5 MB/s on the 2.4 (I do have an AC router, so there is no bottle neck there or anything). These speeds are more than acceptable for me and should work well for a large majority of people.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: I have done no testing other than my intended usage for this device, but it does a perfect job so far!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Quiet (completely silent for non-gaming)
-Amazingly high build quality
-Clean look (sleeved cables)
-Corsair Warranty (7 years)/Customer Support
This power supply is very impressive. The fan not needing to even spin at lower wattages keeps it perfectly silent when I am not gaming (and then it is still far quieter than my graphics card when I do game). It is instantly apparent that this is a high quality item. I have owned similarly priced power supplies in the past and this one tops them – easily. Even the appearance of the power supply is just outstanding. I like that the edges are slightly rounded, it seems to make it a bit easier to install – though I am not sure why that is the case. All-black sleeved cables will look good in pretty much any build. It is apparent from the product description, but I still like to point out that it is 80+ GOLD as I tend to only buy GOLD or better power supplies anymore. It is also worth noting that this PSU is fully modular – and well labeled so that it is easy to know which cable plugs in where on the power supply.
Corsair warranty and customer service is amazing (see Other Thoughts). Reviews from professional sites give this an extremely high rating (see Other Thoughts).
Cons: -CPU power cable may need extension in a full tower case
I initially tested this in a full tower case. I did have to use an extension to get the cord to reach if I wanted it routed behind the motherboard… which, who wouldn’t? At the same time though, the cord was about 2 inches longer than the cord of the power supply it replaced – and seems very slightly longer than most CPU power connectors that I have used. It would have been nice if it included an extension for this cord – so people with smaller cases don’t have a ton of extra wire but people with a full tower case don’t need to get one.
I always try to find some sort of con with even my favorite products. But honestly, it is hard this time. My major con is something that most people with a full tower case should generally expect with any power supply. The voltages were spot on through my tests (as they seem to be with everyone who reviews this product), the quality is there, and it is just amazing.
Other Thoughts: -I apparently had a lot to say about this product, and there is more!
I have dealt with Corsair Customer support on another product that had a faulty LED. They are fantastic. They offered (I did NOT have to even ask) to advance-ship the replacement so I could use the other one until it arrived AND to pay the return shipping of my defective product. I have never had a manufacturer offer to do this on the first inquiry. They do not give you the run around – they actually solve the problem and do it right. Past personal experience shows that Corsair stands behind their products. This product gets a major plus from me for the 7 year warranty it carries with it.
It is also worth noting when you check this power supply (or any power supply in the Corsair RMx series) on the sites that actually take apart PSUs, and check every little detail with equipment that is far more expensive than anything I own, that it has nearly perfect reviews. This is rare and a HUGE plus in my book.
I highly recommend this product. If you are looking for a power supply in the 750W range - then this should be one of the top contenders.
My cat claimed the draw-string bag that the power supply came in. He loves it. 5 eggs from him as well.
