Rosewill RNX-AC1200UB, Dual Band Wireless AC1200 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11AC IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, Up to 867 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 300 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Wireless Data Rates, USB 3.0 Interface

Pros: Price was acceptable; claims dual AC

Cons: - Physically large unit
- Could not get it to be recognized by a ZBox unit. Other USB wireless fobs worked but not this one
- Drops in and out of connectivity without any pattern

Other Thoughts: - Would not recommend to others
- Was using an Rosewill I purchased ~6 months ago on another system (that Rosewill has already stopped supporting). Since this unit wouldn't work on the ZBox I moved it to my work PC and it was recognized (since a Rosewill was already working on it). I then took the first Rosewell AC1200 and plugged it into the ZBox and it worked.
- Must be an issue with different chipsets in different Rosewill AC1200 usb wireless units. They should be consistent. The user should not have to fight through compatability issues.
- Bottomline? Look elsewhere. I won't be buying Rosewill USB wireless units in the future.
- Using Windows 10

PowerColor Go! Green Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 AX5450 1GBK3-SHEV4 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card (UEFI Ready)

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap. Don;t expect much.

Other Thoughts: The card died and I contacted PC about an RMA and they denied it saying the card was past the warranty period. Today I've exchanged 6 emails with them showing the purchase dates (I've bought 2 in the past). The last one I emailed a copy/paste of the invoice and they responded and said they wanted the actual invoice so I printed, scanned and sent as a PDF.

For those who've dealt with PC tech I have to agree that they are a royal pain in the petute and make it hard to purchase from them. Personally I'm offended that they seem to think I'm lying.

HP Desktop PC 8200 Intel Core i3 3.1 GHz 4 GB 250 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good price. Boots reasonably fast.

Cons: At 250gb the hdd is simply too small - uses 2.5" and NO room for 2nd drive

Built-in video is minimal - no room for add-on card

Drivers out of date (ran Slimware Drivers Free to update)

Other Thoughts: Arrived in a box that was partially open. Poor packaging. Unit itself is clearly "worn" on the exterior. Win 7 Pro but needed nearly 250 updates.
