EDIMAX EW-7811UTC AC600 Dual-band USB 2.0 Wireless Mini Adapter, ideally for upgrading Laptop, desktop, Macbook or Ultrabook with 433/150Mbps data rates
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: One of the most affordable AC dual-band adapters available and it works great. I've used 3 or 4 of them in different clients' PCs and no complaints at all.

I actually prefer Edimax adapters over any of the 'big' brands since the big guys like to bundle unnecessary crapware along with the driver. With Edimax you just get the driver and no extra bloat.

Cons: The LED could be less bright but no biggie...

SYBA SI-PEX24038 1-Port Ethernet PCI-Express x1, Revision 1.0a with Standard & Low Profile Brackets- Realtek Chipset 10/ 100/ 1000 Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: They *partially* work

Cons: I purchased 2 of these cards for use in Windows-based IP surveillance NVRs, and both cards have issues

-The activity LED does not work on either card, they just stay dark. However, the Link LEDs work...

-One of the cards is causing the network switch (HP 1910) to occasionally log CRC errors on the port the Syba card is connected to. The other card is not exhibiting this issue and I have tried different switch ports and patch cables. The errors follow the card.

Other Thoughts: I have tried 3 different drivers and the issues remain. I tried the driver supplied by Syba, the Windows 8.1 'built-in' driver, and the latest driver from Realtek's website.

It appears Syba does little to no QA on these cards, and the chances of getting a 'bad' one seem pretty high...

StarTech HSB4SATSASBA 4 Bay Aluminum Trayless Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane for 3.5in SAS II/SATA III - 6 Gbps HDD
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Solid build quality
-Love not having to mess around with drive trays, just slide the drives right in
-Uses standard SATA power connectors(2 of them)
-Good airflow

Cons: Sleeve-bearing fan instead of longer life ball-bearing type.

Other Thoughts: Fan is 80mm x 20mm, not 70mm as stated by manufacturer. (Young Lin model# DFC802012M)
I wish manufacturers could get the specs correct for their own products...
