Pros: I get 36-37 Mbit/sec on two outlets that are not on the same circuit.
Ping time/lag is more consistent on this than on wifi. I get about 4ms ping with these, and 2-12 on wifi.
Cons: Just like wifi AC1200 seems to give only a fraction, same with all powerline stuff.
Overall Review: Great entry level device for the money.
Pros: This is the V1 of the product. It is an awesome product.
Cons: But, V1 only has a windows configuration program.
Overall Review: V2 has a web-based config. This item is only a V1, and I don't see how to tell that. And, I don't see a V2 at NewEgg.
Pros: This is a nice little single drive USB adapter. I wanted to be able to connect up HD for backup and such, and this does it great. Supports 2.5" and 3.5" SATA.
The power cord is plenty long.
No disk of drivers. Windows 7 found it and I could use it immediately.
Overall Review: When inserting, make sure to insert it and not just sit it there.
Sure the USB cord is a little short, but I have about 50 longer ones. Lots of things don't even come with USB cords anymore.
Note, the USB cord is on the bottom of the box. At first, I thought that I didn't even get one. But, I found it.
Pros: Fast and Easy. I put this in my older, but high-performance laptop. It boots Windows 7 3x faster and loads programs almost instantly.
Cons: None. Windows Experience Index doesn't know how to rate SSD's highly.
Overall Review: I got this on sale with a rebate. It may not be the fastest SSD, but I doubt anyone would notice a difference. Great drive. I recommend it.
Pros: Great network switch. I'm limited by disk speed on transfers at 60-70 MBytes/sec.
It's small, quiet, cool.
It is simple - it moves packets around.
It has mounting screws - one of these days I'll mount my networking equipment to something and organize it.
Cons: None really. It has an autouplink port, so it's 8 ports total.
Since it's autouplink, no crossover cable is needed.
However, for those of us who used to use the uplink switch to turn off a port, it's a con.
Pros: Cable - it works.
Cons: It won't make you smarter.
Pros: works perfectly and is quite flexible.
I like it.
Overall Review: HDMI cables are generally all the same. Buy cheap, like this one.
Newegg shipped in one day.
Pros: More flexible than most cables.
Cons: Not perfectly flexible, but better than average.
Pros: Works perfectly with a 30' hdmi and a 6' dvi - hdmi.
Overall Review: Small, very very small.
Pros: $80 after rebate for 2GB of DDR2 800? Yep. So, I bought 4GB. With that price, 4GB is a no brainer.
Fast, solid, good heat spreader
Cons: I'm worried that the ram doesn't have enough heat dissapation with 4 1-GB modules.
Not really a con though.
Overall Review: Buy more ram. You'll be happy.
Even with Supreme Commander wanting 2 GB, with 4GB total, in Vista, I have no delays with Alt-Tab out/in of SupCom.
Vista 64-bit and no issues.
Pros: Solid, cheap.
Cons: No frills.
Overall Review: Good value for the money.
I don't care about flashy lights or neon - it sits under the desk.
Pros: Great card. Paid $xxx-$xx rebate - SupCom game, for real cost of only $xx -- $xxx less than the 8800GTS.
SupCom plays great on this with C2D 6420 and 4gig ram ($xxx).
Also, works perfectly with Vista 64-bit.
Cons: Heat sink/spreader doesn't seem as firmly connected as I would like - but not a problem.
Overall Review: Reviewers knock this card for being slow compared to 8800GTS, and barely faster than 7600GTS.
The effective price of $xx mentioned above makes it a great deal.
Overclocked from the factory.
