This review is from: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Dual Band N600 PCIe adapter, External antenna
Pros: Great software
Very small form (good if you don't want the card to block your gpu fans.
Cons: Despite intel including a great antenna it's made useless by the fact the signal strength max for the card is dependent on your router/modem. One should get the full effect without having it be dependent on the modem/router from your isp which is not always optimal. As result of this problem I do not recommend this if you have to deal with interference. These two problems combined will make the card just like any cheap typical wireless card that can be gotten for much less and have better signal strength. I docked two eggs for these two issues.
Next issue to mention soley comes from experience with other intel cards both ethernet and wireless. This card lacks features that one can disable/enable in the device manger that are really needed for wireless when things aren't working right. You cannot change the preamble. You cannot change the rts or fragmentation threshold which when intereference happens is the best way to deal with the issue.
Other Thoughts: Not worth buying unless it's on sale and it's dirt cheap.
Can't stress my last con enough. I don't think anything at the price they charge for these wireless cards should have less features than one can find on a cheap onboard wireless chip.
This review is from: bgears b-Blaster 80 80mm Case Fan
Pros: The fans do push a lot of air, can't say much after that as there is little special about the design or the quality of it.
Cons: My main beef and it can't be stress enough is overall quality. One of my fans broke on installation. Another of mine after a few months broke cause the wire was filmsy and came off when I switched it to another spot. If the fan blades were higher quality as well as the wires I wouldn't be making complaints.
Other Thoughts: No I do not wish rma fans this cheap considering shipping will cost as much as the fans did.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA2010KIT AV200 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 200Mbps
Pros: Works without very little effort.
Better for gaming than any wireless combination I've had to use for years.
Very small and will only take up one space.
Cons: Outside of a pass through plug can't think of any. Didn't test for throughput since this isn't for file transfer just net and unless you have a ton of download you won't be maxing it. If you have fiber or something 50Mbps get something in the 500Mbps range but they are pricy.
Other Thoughts: Really did wonders to make my ping stable compared to normally where Iuse wireless.READ FULL REVIEW
