ASUS USB-N53 Dual Band (2.4GHz 300Mbps/5GHz 300Mbps) Wireless-N USB Adapter, Graphical Easy Interface, Live Signal Monitor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a very reliable USB wireless adapter. WIth a good signal it does reach it's advertised speed.

Cons: Drivers on ASUS's website are very old.

Other Thoughts: I was having an issue where the latency would suddenly shoot up to exactly 1000 ms, and stay there until I reconnected. The latest drivers from ASUS were over a couple years old, but after some research I found that underneath it's actually an Ralink adapter and found some much newer Ralink drivers, and now it works flawlessly. I'm not 100% sure if the drivers fixed it, it's likely, but I was also messing with the router at the time trying to fix the issue, although I never noticed the issue with any other wireless device. I'll still dock it an egg for ASUS not updating their drivers.

This adapter is fairly large for being a USB "stick". Pretty big to be sticking into the side of a laptop. I use it on a desktop, connected to a 12' USB extension to place it where the signal is better.

NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS105 v5) - Lifetime Warranty
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast and reliable. When found on sale or with a rebate, it's performance, sturdy metal build and compactness can not be beat.

Cons: It would be nice if the power connected on the same side as the ports, it's not like this is a rack mount switch or something. However, then it wouldn't be as small as it is, so I'm fine with it.

Other Thoughts: I have another of these that I purchased in 2006, and after a few years it had some issues. Some ports randomly won't auto-detect at gigabit speeds. I'll switch to another port and it will connect at gigabit just fine. Also about once a month it stops working completely and needs reset. Other than that it's been fine. I don't expect this one to have these issues, but time will tell, and it's so cheap as long as it goes a few years it's worth it.

Cooler Master Rifle Bearing 80mm Silent Cooling Fan for Computer Cases and CPU Coolers
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I wouldn't call it silent. It is quiet though, about as loud as the cheap fan that came with my PC case, but it moves a lot more air.

Cons: None
