Pros: Works as it should
Cons: Non-standard drawer dimensions means I can't use the optical drive covers in my Antec Sonata. The drawer won't fit through the flip-down opening in the coverREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EnGenius ERB9250 Wireless N Range Extender
Pros: Easy setup, performs as advertised
Cons: Speeds improved, but still are not that impressive.
Other Thoughts: My wife's computer is in in her craft room, on a different floor from my home office where I have a Dlink DIR-655 (H/W revision A, so it's older) wireless router. She had a Medialink Wireless-N USB adapter, which only could get about 8Mbps of throughput with WPA2 enabled. With the EnGenius wireless repeater connected to the Ethernet port on her computer, we're seeing 20-25Mbps, so at least she is able to utilize all of our cable Internet bandwidth. However, even when the repeater was in the same room with the Dlink DIR-655, I was only connecting at 65Mbps, and total throughput was around 30Mbps. Overall it's an improvement, but I was hoping for much higher speeds for our own file sharing. My laptop connects at 130Mbps when in the same room as the router, and I get about 60Mbps of throughput on it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ECS IC780M-A2 (V1.0A) AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Very cheap. Does the job. Lack of features means nothing gets in the way when installing it.
Cons: Just the basics. No frills. No control over clocks, timing, core unlocking, etc. No Firewire, no USB 3.0. What do you expect at this price point?
Other Thoughts: Bought this to upgrade the hand-me-down PC my wife was using who now wants to edit video. Pulled out the 5-1/2 year old high-end (at the time) Gigabyte board and E6300 C2D, replaced it with this, a Phenom II 960T, 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and a Nvidia GT 430 pulled from another system. Ran a couple passes of MemTest86+, then cloned her old Windows 7 boot drive, rebooted, and let it detect all the hardware changes (I know it's risky but I do this all the time and have never had a problem. I'm an EE and a S/W developer and can get myself out of trouble if I'm ever in it.). One reboot later all the new H/W was working and she's happily editing her crafting videos.
Gave it four stars because it is soooo basic. Tremendous value, though free beats cheap.
