Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Very un-steady runner. This one is not what I have seen in a 3d nand SSD.
Pros: seems to be fine
Cons: I like the little bugger. I do. But it is a little (size wise) flash drive. That is a bit of a " lose it easily "problem for me and I'm sure others as well.
Pros: realtek chipset because stable driver can now be found
Cons: realtek chipset because of the older drivers
Overall Review: had this chipset in another generic (premiertek) adapter and it was all over the place until i found 1027.4.1120.2014 driver dated 2/16/2015. Now it runs for days without breaking connection. I have both adapters now and they both work well.
Pros: made for storing data
Cons: won't work for a drive to load windows 7
Overall Review: the windows 7 operating system neither has or understands anything that is usb 3. The technology was not built into windows 7. so quit whining
Pros: stronger signal strength overall...covers the dead spots in my area with ease. This unit and my neighbors just like it, converted to R6300v2 with ease as well.
Cons: not the easiest to configure
Overall Review: I should have tried it with the stock firmware before I burned the new id, but I didn't , so I will never know if the AC1450 firmware really sucked or not ;)
Pros: worth the $19.99 with the rebate....a good and should be reliable spare
Cons: not worth much more because of the limited firmware changes that can be made and it doesn't give me the range in my situation that I got from Netgear 3500L with tomato firmware.
Pros: mine came to me in immaculate condition.
Cons: The hard drive, in the unit i received, had a stutter. I mean that it would run fine then stop moving data for a few seconds. Then it would be fine for a short while and then do it again (very annoying). I took the drive out and replaced it with one i had lying around and the problem was gone. I am running a surface test to see if it qualifies as a bad drive as it is still under toshiba warranty. I note that does not fail to format and take the stress of a new install of the op sys. Toshiba's website is a real PITA to navigate and find out how to RMA a drive back to them. I may be stuck with what seems to be a perfectly fine storage drive (but no good for an op system) I tried it in another laptop and my results were stuttering in that laptop as well. I refuse to send the elitebook back to Newegg as it is in like new condition and it really does run great with a different hard drive in it. Sending it back might get me a beat up refurb. That would be worse than a funky hard drive that i can easily replace. It is worth noting that the cover on the bottom of the laptop was not re-seated properly in the refurbishing process, which may indicate that the US Micro tech refurbing the unit noticed something was odd and still passed it on anyway.
Pros: external antenna
Cons: only pre-N (150 mbps) but it says so in the description
Overall Review: very strong receiver in this unit. no worries about staying connected so far. Very happy here.
Pros: none or maybe that it looked nice
Cons: no service life at all
Overall Review: owned for over a year (bought 7/8/11 and didn't try until 10/27/12) so the warranty won't apply. Plugged it in and it popped and took out the mobo along with itself.
Pros: brought down cpu temp 10f after the short burnin of the paste
Cons: none really...always a chance of cutting yourself on metal objects :)
Overall Review: i like the way it does it's stuff
Pros: it works well
Cons: none that i can see unless i unlock it :)
Overall Review: who'd a ever thunk we'd be happy buying broken stuff...this is a broken phenom II.... and I love it!
Pros: doesn't run as hot as the Athlon 6000
Cons: none really in this price range..even if it wouldn't unlock
Overall Review: replaced an unlocked sempron 140 ...this runs very little better...it did not unlock... i'm not sad about the purchase...just wish i got a proc that would have unlocked
Pros: better range than other adapters..better price on sale
Overall Review: i love it!
Pros: easy setup...seems fast....actually seems to connect better than my WNR3500 V1 from the same distance to my adapter
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: i got a new (old stock = refurbished) version 1 router for $19.99...hard to beat that as long as it holds up for a while
Pros: it works and runs cooler than seagate large drives of previous generations
Overall Review: time will tell the story..they give a 3 year warranty for a reason :)
Pros: been using one of these for over 7 months
Cons: none thus far
Overall Review: seems well made, fairly quiet, and reliable....i got me a 2nd one ordered :)
Pros: doesn't run hot like my other netgear usb adapters do...connects at 300 Mbps with good to very good signal quality
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: running winxp with this adapter....i used the driver from the ralink site (they're always the newest ) that matches the chipset used in this.... http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php and using windows zero config
Pros: minimal trouble getting all the drivers working....good onboard sound
Overall Review: unlocked a sempron 140 with this mobo.... stable but not over-clockable processor..i'll take it for the combo deal price...thanks newegg for the special help getting this upgrade sorted
Pros: Newegg got em here quick! I could see a difference in the picture quality over a single link dvi cable.
Cons: None thus far
Overall Review: Glad I broke down and spent the money for em :)
Pros: flashes with dd-wrt ( as others have said)
Cons: range is not really great..but adequate for my needs
Overall Review: Good stability with dd-wrt firmware..worth the $34.99 ( especially with the free linksys cardbus N adapter)...good backup router ( or access point if you need one)
Cons: not as well with the linksys drivers
Overall Review: use the atheros_ar5xxx_184.108.40.206 driver zip file for win xp....matched my router better...maybe it will for you too
Pros: none...it wouldn't connect to my ISP
Overall Review: Newegg still has my confidence....they got the item here quickly and will RMA it if i decide it's worth the shipping
Pros: works well...not running hot at all....$9.99 each ..how could you go wrong!
Cons: none so far (especially at sale price )
Overall Review: I got 5 of these and all were in working condition..it looks like they were version1 overstock...never out of the wrappers.... i got just the adapter ( no cable), but they all logged into the router without incident..great buy for $9.99 each
Pros: grabs the signal just fine
Cons: hated my hardware on Windows 7
Overall Review: i'll find a good home for this card...well worth the money i spent on it
Pros: lots of features...overall good graphics for on-board
Cons: usb acts a little flaky...it didn't like my Seagate external drive...something to do with the sleep feature in the external drive, no doubt..other boards seem to have no problem with this
Overall Review: It took me a couple days to get this board to perform well...the bios settings made it tougher than it needed to be...thanks ASUS for the latest bios update....my cpu now runs at 1.35 volts ( where it should be ) instead of 1.45 volts..dropped 15 degrees in temp from that
