does not support 5Ghz
Pros: Card installed an operated with no problems
Cons: Doesn't support 5Ghz
Overall Review: Don't make the same mistake I did! Can't blame the card - it worked as advertised. It boosted my signal strength a bit over the old USB adapter I had been using. But then I spent $160 to get a better (dual band) Wireless router and got excited about 5GHz. After installing the router - I noticed it could only connect to the 2.4 GHz band. I get about 7 Mbps. On my laptop (which supports 5GHz) in the same room I get 23Mbps (I'm using speedtest.net and testing internet download - so the actual through put on the network is probably higher) So now I'm looking at the LINKSYS WMP600N... I can't really justify sending it back to newegg - it was my error.
Pros: Easy to set up Is faster than my 2.4 GHz G router
Cons: Not as much improvement in speed as I had hoped.
Overall Review: I was getting a 'good' signal in my office about 100' away from my G router downstairs. Thought moving to 5 GHz dual band would improve things significantly. While it is better, I don't really notice it. I get "Excellent" signal at 2.4 GHz now - but I use the 5GHz band. Even though the signal strength is barely there ("poor") testing shows it is twice as fast as the 2.4GHz band. But I'm talking an increase from 15Mps to 30Mps (internet access - not file throughput) Nice but I don't really notice the difference. I wonder if it is possible to get some kind of signal booster - I am wondering whether it would make any difference?
You get what you pay for
Pros: Cheap, bright monitor
Cons: Might just die after 18 months like mine did. Note: while I didn't buy this exact model, these models seem to be discontinued after a few months. This model is equivilent to the model I bought - the only 20.1 LCD offered by Sceptre through Newegg at the moment.
Overall Review: I bought the now discontinued SCEPTRE X20WG-Naga Black 20.1" 18 months ago. 4 months ago, I bought a SCEPTRE X20WG-1080P Black 20.1" -(which is also now discontinued) to have a (kind of) matching pair. Today - the first one just died. It flickers weakly for a moment when you connect it - then it goes black. I have to buy a new monitor.
