Pros: This adapter is very small and it provides excellent reception. It also works on Windows as well as Linux. Lights indicate connection status which can be seen through the translucent case. Connection speed is also fantastic. Included mini CD contains windows and linux drivers.
Cons: The cap that covers the usb connector when not in use can be easily misplaced.
Overall Review: Ubuntu detected the wireless adapter without a problem and it also installed on Windows 7 without a problem. I would recommend to a friend or client. It works better than some pci adapters.
Pros: These speakers are wonderful for the size. The sound is good and they do well with movies and streaming music as well. Great for Notebook computers. They are built tough.
Cons: Don't expect very low frequency response out of these.
Overall Review: These speakers are small, they fit very well on a small desk. I have played games, listened to music and talk shows, and also watched movies while using this set. They performed well on all tasks mentioned. For the price they can't be beat. I used them with my notebook computer.
Pros: This DVD Drive works like it should. Helpful for any netbook that comes without a DVD drive. I have used it to install software and also to play movies, it does well with both. Haven't found a disc that didn't read on this drive yet.
Cons: The drive is noisy at full speed. The material is very "economical" plastic. The USB chord is very short, less than a foot.
Overall Review: I would buy this again, it makes it easy to move from one computer to another when installing software, I just leave the disc in it and just move the drive. -1 egg for noise, +1 for price.
Pros: Installation was easy. Installed this on a PC with Windows XP and it worked right out of the box after installing the software. Signal strength is great.
Cons: Takes a long time to recognize the network. Read another reviewer who has the same problem. The software that comes with the card is not very user friendly, especially if you are not tech savvy.
Overall Review: Lost 2 eggs due to the time it takes to recognize the network and the quality of the software.
Pros: This notebook cooler is made of high quality materials. The three fans are quiet on high setting. It has an usb connector that allows you to connect an usb device to it, so you don't have to do without the port. Comfortable to work on. The fans can be adjusted to the speed that works best for you, on low you can't hardly hear them, on high is just minor noise.
Cons: It is made for desktop use, I wouldn't put this on anyone's lap especially because of the fans underneath it and overall ergonomics.
Overall Review: Bought this for my HP EliteBook 8530p which has always experience heat problems when playing games. It resolved the problems, it runs cool to the touch and would highly recommend it to a friend or client.
Pros: This memory stick works on the Acer Aspire One AO532H. It doubles the memory from 1gb to 2gb, the speed increase is noticeable. Windows 7 works best on 2 gigs or higher and this is a recommended upgrade to any small netbook.
Overall Review: If upgrading an Aspire One make sure you upgrade the BIOS from the Acer website before installing this memory stick.
