Most Critical Review

Fast, when it works

Intel 7260HMWDTX1 Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260  PCIe plus Bluetooth 4.0 AC1200 Wireless adapters
Intel 7260HMWDTX1 Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 PCIe plus Bluetooth 4.0 AC1200 Wireless adapters

Pros: With Wireless AC, I was able to get connection speeds of 650 Mbs easily. The external antenna comes with a handy little tack to hang it on the wall getting it far above the desktop and away from clutter.

Cons: It constantly drops the 5GHz band. When it does, my computer will switch over to the 2.4 GHz which is of course much slower and not the reason I bought it. Sometimes the 5GHz connection will last for hours, and sometimes it will only last for a few minutes.

Overall Review: With an updated and more STABLE driver, this could be really awesome. I also have not taken the time to figure out the Bluetooth yet, but it did not work on the first go.

Close but no cigar

Adesso ARC-1100 MCE Infrared Remote Control
Adesso ARC-1100 MCE Infrared Remote Control

Pros: Mouse works effectively. Form factor feels nice I hand.

Cons: Info button should work like a context key, NOT A RIGHT CLICK FROM A HIDDEN CURSOR. Why have both a play and pause key if they do THE EXACT SAME THING. Clicking play while playing should show the current position in the program being watched, NOT PAUSE THE PROGRAM. Also, WILL NOT WORK WITH MY OTHER IR RECEIVERS. THIS IS NOT A CERTIFIED WMC REMOTE.

Overall Review: Close, but this is a failed attempt of a great idea.
