Nice little card

Intel Centrino 6235 IEEE 802.11 Dual Band N600 Mini PCI Express Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter, 2.4GHz 300Mbps/5GHz 300Mbps-OEM
Intel Centrino 6235 IEEE 802.11 Dual Band N600 Mini PCI Express Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter, 2.4GHz 300Mbps/5GHz 300Mbps-OEM

Pros: WiFi works great, dual-band 2.4/5Ghz. Paired with a Asus RT-AC66U Router, 300Mbit/s consistent signal with decent range. Make sure you have the 2 antenna connectors plugged in. Bluetooth 4.0HS works decently, just make sure you download the latest drivers from Intel. (You need to download two packages, one for the WiFi and one for the Bluetooth.) Newegg doesn't provide any disks or software, just an FYI.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: 1. People who complain about signal issues, make sure you have a semi decent router, and that you have BOTH antenna's connected to the card. 2. For those people who are replacing an OEM card in your laptop to this one, make sure you know what you are doing, as the laptop will have a whitelist of cards which it will take, and most likely wont include this one. There are ways around it but involves some knowledge and research. 3. The BLUETOOTH in this card works off the Mini-PCI-E USB Data+/- (Pins 36/38) (Search for Mini PCI-E pinout). Meaning, it will NOT work in all laptops. Some laptops you would have to toggle the Bluetooth with a physical hardware switch/button, using the keyboard FN+Key, or via Software toggles. Some laptop's don't even have those pins connected, and the USB from the Mini PCI-E is re-routed elsewhere on the board. (Which is the case for my HP. I did get mine working, but I can't explain.) So before you give the card a bad review because your Bluetooth doesn't work or Card doesn't get picked up, the problem is with your laptop/manufacturer.

Great phone system!

Pros: Phone is just awesome. Loudness and voice clarity is just superb, doesn't get interference from WiFi like the one it replaced. Link to cell works pretty nicely. Definitely recommend.

Cons: Not exactly a con, but the Talking Caller ID feature of the phone botches the pronunciation of some names. lol.

Awesome little hub

HooToo HT-UH003 7-Port Hub - (2) USB 3.0 (4) USB 2.0, (1) 5V/2A Charging Port, (1) 5V/4A Power Adapter, and 3ft. USB 3.0 Data Cable
HooToo HT-UH003 7-Port Hub - (2) USB 3.0 (4) USB 2.0, (1) 5V/2A Charging Port, (1) 5V/4A Power Adapter, and 3ft. USB 3.0 Data Cable

Pros: All ports works as stated. Plug and play, windows detects the hub and installs all the drivers. Has 2 ports which are vertical which is good for the wireless RF Dongles. (Mouse/Bluetooth etc..) The power adapter gives about ~4.55Amps, enough to power all the bus-powered devices. The plastic seems sturdy and adapter seems well built, (unlike some of the cheaper hubs which feels like it'll fall apart.)

Cons: Nothing really except they should use a Blue LED for power instead of green, doesn't match my new devices! lol.

Overall Review: The listing states 7 ports, keep in mind one of the ports is ONLY FOR CHARGING! USB 3 file transfer speeds seems slightly reduced, but that's the nature of any hubs imo. Not sure why they put an on-off switch that switches off the entire hub, no use for me really.

Rosewill RLLB-11001 60 W Equivalent LED 7 Watt E26/E27 6000K Bright White Bulb
Rosewill RLLB-11001 60 W Equivalent LED 7 Watt E26/E27 6000K Bright White Bulb

Pros: 6000K light is awesome! I dislike the "yellowish" light color that the standard 3000k bulbs give off. 6000K is equivelent to "Daylight" bulbs in terms of CFL's and FL Tubes.

Cons: The only reason why I took off 1 egg was the 1 second delay in the bulbs. From the minute you flip the switch, you need to wait an actual second and a half before the light is on. But once it's on, it's at full brightness, none of that wait for it to get brighter deal that the CFL's do. I've read that it's to prolong the LED bulb life.. but I have other LED bulbs which comes on instantly.

Overall Review: If you used to have a 100 Watt/equiv bulb in a single socket for that room, you would need 2 of these bulbs, and get a 1-to-2 splitter for it. :)
