ASUS PCE-N53 Dual-Band Wireless-N600 Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 300Mbps downlink+300Mbps uplink Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Cheap, high throughput when co-located with wireless router

Cons: Unacceptable Range. When using 802.11n and the wireless router is in the same room as the computer, 7 feet away, card achieves 100% data throughput with no lost packets as advertised. However, when the router is moved to 15 feet away, through two drywall walls, card achieves a max of .6% advertised speed. That is to say with the lost packets, it was only able to achieve a max of 2Mbps throughput. No other devices were using wireless during this test. This test was highly repeatable with the same results on other days. Also of note, when this wireless card was achieving 2 Mbps, a cell phone was able to saturate 802.11n speeds with the router 15 feet away through 2 walls.

Bottom line: If your router will be in the same room as the computer with this installed, this is a great buy. However, if the router is in another room, DON'T BUY THIS CARD. You would be better off using 802.11b on a 10 year-old wireless card than trying to use this card.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Poorly made. ~50% lost packets using 802.11n at 20ft through one wall.

Other Thoughts: DON'T BUY THIS!!!! I had to return mine since I couldn't even browse youtube without pieces of the page missing and videos not being able to play

COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

2 out of 5 eggs Ehh, not what I was hoping for 04/25/2011

This review is from: COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Good price. Has a convenient "light" button on the front

Cons: Only 3 fans, and whatever worker tried assemble my case failed with trying to bunch the wires together. They zip-tied the third fan power supply behind the case to a spot that wasn't accessable. Also, the case didn't provide sufficient screws so I needed to go back and uses screws provided with my last Antec case

Other Thoughts: Next time I'm just going to stick with Antec cases
