EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Wonderful 04/19/2014

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

Pros: - Very small (just a tad bit smaller than the Logitech unifying receiver for my laptop's wireless mouse)
- Small enough to always leave in your laptop
- Excellent signal strength for such a small unit
- Blue activity LED works well and is not annoyingly bright

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these: one for my desktop and one for my laptop which has a failing built-in wireless card. I'm very impressed with both. The drivers installed automatically via windows update on my laptop but I had to download the drivers manually on my desktop. Both machines have Windows 7 on them. Would definitely recommend this for a desktop, laptop, Raspberry Pi....whatever you need it for!

I was able to pick mine up on sale for $8 each. These are absolutely wonderful at that price point.

AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ 220W Desktop Processor - Black Edition FD9590FHHKWOF
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Quite Fast
-You know you want it so just buy it. However, please read "Other Thoughts" before doing so.

Cons: - Heat
- RAM controller causes slightly underwhelming memory benchmarks

Other Thoughts: First:

As mentioned above, this thing runs very warm so invest in a good liquid cooler. I had good results with a Corsair H100i and a 5.1GHz overclock.


Do your research on motherboards that are FULLY compatible with this CPU. I first tried using a ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 (heavy cpu loads caused thermal shut downs for me).

The second board I tried was the Crosshair V Formula Z which is working flawlessly even with a slight overclock.

Other boards may work with this CPU...this is just my experience. Hopefully it saves someone some RMA time

TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Plug it in and it works. Literally. I read the manual so that I knew what each of the 3 lights on these units signified but that was it.

Cons: Not really a con but more of a heads up to other potential buyers: I have one touch-to-turn-on lamp in my home (I think the proper name is "capacitive touch lamp" but I'm not 100% sure...)

Anyways, since using this set of adapters, I've noticed that the lamp will turn on sometimes by itself.

Is it ghosts? Is it this set of PL adapters? Am I getting senile at the age of 24? Who knows.

Just wanted to throw it out there just in case.

I would highly recommend these adapters regardless.

Other Thoughts: I used my pair to get my entertainment center better connected to my home network:

Router -> PL adapter -> ~~Powerlines~~ -> PL adapter -> Gigabit switch -> Entertainment center devices (Blu-Ray Player, HTPC, HD HomeRun Prime)

Such an awesome, intuitive device!
