Nice!

D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 G High Speed 2.4GHz 802.11g Wireless Cardbus Adapter
D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 G High Speed 2.4GHz 802.11g Wireless Cardbus Adapter

Pros: Basic install went without a hitch.

Cons: I always want more info on security settings. D-Link is no better or worse than any other but I spend more time fiddling with security issues than i care to.

Overall Review: Usually a Netgear man but this card is fine so far. The low price and free shipping made it hard to pass up.

Good Card--Weak Antenna

Rosewill RNX-G300E IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Wireless Card up to 54Mbps Data Rates Hardware-Base Encryption/Decryption Using 64-,128bit WEP keys, WPA and WPA2 are also supported - WINDOWS VISTA READY
Rosewill RNX-G300E IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Wireless Card up to 54Mbps Data Rates Hardware-Base Encryption/Decryption Using 64-,128bit WEP keys, WPA and WPA2 are also supported - WINDOWS VISTA READY

Pros: simple installation (I'm using windows 2000 pro) works fine with my netgear router I was up and running in about 20 minutes.

Cons: the antenna is the weak link here. cable is way too short--18 inches is all you get

Overall Review: this card is ok out of the box. price point is on target. a better antenna would have gotten it a 5 rating. overall i'm satisfied.

Fun and Affordable

SONY PlayStation 2 SingStar Bundle Crystal White
SONY PlayStation 2 SingStar Bundle Crystal White

Pros: bundle saves you 20 bucks and you get a game that is great fun right in the box. my 13 yo daughter really liked the white color. she uses it to watch dvds when not playing games.

Cons: ok, ps2 is 8 or 9 years old -- you won't be getting cutting edge technology. graphics are good but will look a little aged compared to the latest generation systems.

Overall Review: with ps2 you won't get the latest and greatest but what you will get is the most hardware and games for your money.

Still nice.

Pros: Works fine right out of the box. Gets along great with my Netgear router. I always get 90-100% signal strength and quality. We have a small single story home so distance and obstructions are at a minimum.

Cons: Configuration software is a bit frustrating. Had trouble setting up profiles.

Overall Review: This card has been up and running for a couple of weeks now and I am very satisfied. As I mentioned, it was compatible with my Netgear and after a little studying, I have the security features configured just as I wanted.
