Pros: Could definitely tell a notable difference in the sound. I have an ASUS X-99 motherboard and I was using the on-board sound drivers for everything up till now, using optical to send that to a Sony receiver with a 5.1 setup. After installing this card, I could tell an improvement in almost every situation. DEFINITELY worth the money if you are building a higher-spec system, whether gaming for gaming or composition.
Cons: For the manufacturer, would suggest putting the lights installed onto the card rather than as a separate strip. Didn't really fuss with installing all that as it just looked like a bit of a hassle.
I'll Get One That Works Eventually...
Pros: None so far...
Cons: The only downside I've had is that the first one I received had to be returned because it didn't work, so when I received the second one that too didn't work. I've had to send that back to the manufacturer using warranty, so hopefully third time will be the charm.
Not very strong
Pros: Does indeed extend the range, and installation was fairly easy though I am a techy guy.
Cons: Really not that powerful, I have a cinder-block home and unfortunately this product didn't really fulfill the goal for having bought it. The router is in a bedroom (only place it could go sadly), the extender really had to be within about 20 feet of it or it didn't work, at which point it didn't extend the range far enough to reach the bedroom we were trying to get signal in. Essentially it just gave us slightly better reception in the living room for the 5g network. Good if your using it very simply, but not as powerful as I'd have liked it to be for the price.
Worst Experience on NewEgg To Date
Awful experience. Bought a 1080ti graphics card on Black Friday with several discounts, so I was excited. -Takes them 5 days to process the sale. -After an additional 7 days reading "Packaging" status, I contact the seller and ask what the hold-up is, to which they respond "OK wait boss." (Actual response) - After waiting an additional 3 days, I contact NewEgg and they say be patient. - The next day, I receive an email from the seller at 2 a.m. that literally says: "Dear ________,sorry about it.This 1080ti been sold out before,and I have bought some from my friends,but most of them are used and renovated.We have to ask post send all the parcel back.We cannot sell this 2nd card to you,and we will refund you then.Apologize again." -Contact NewEgg again to clarify what the heck that mess means, and basically find out the card they sold me (during the very first day of the black friday sale, in the morning) is sold out and there are no comparable items available so they are simply refunding me. Consequently, I miss out on the entire Black Friday savings opportunity since it took 2 weeks to receive all this information. I tell NewEgg, they meet me half-way and give me a $30 gift card as recompense. I would not EVER recommend this seller to anybody. Unprofessional, untimely, and ultimately incompetent at fulfilling their sole goal of selling a product.
