Most Favorable Review

Does what it says it does

Rosewill RC-504 - PCIe FireWire 1394a Card - 2 + 1-Port (Two External + One Internal)
Rosewill RC-504 - PCIe FireWire 1394a Card - 2 + 1-Port (Two External + One Internal)

Pros: It does Firewire. No disc required. Plug and play

Cons: None

Overall Review: I love it. Needed it for recording with a multi-channel board. Plug into PCI-e and it works with no installation required. I hate install discs.

Most Critical Review

I thought it was nice..

Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna
Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: It connected to the internet.

Cons: It worked for maybe 3 months, then it died. I thought my house was having connection issues until I borrowed a friend's USB dongle and I realized that the card was the issue. I reinstalled the drivers and it never worked again. I expect more from Rosewill. Now I must buy a new one.

Works great!

TP-LINK TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender. Wi-Fi Booster
TP-LINK TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender. Wi-Fi Booster

Pros: Makes your connection much better. Comes with a cat5e plug so you can LAN into this.

Cons: Must be reconfigured from time to time. I explain this below. Worth docking one egg. Doesn't configure with an IP, reconfigures at a web address that's not too easy to remember (not worth docking an egg, because it is a personal preference really)

Overall Review: If you have a desktop and don't want to buy a wireless card but what to connect to a wireless router on the otherside of a building, just get this. You can ethernet to the extender and connect wirelessly that way. Much faster than using a PCI-e wireless card. However, I went to a LAN party (didn't take the extender with me, just wired into my friends router) and came back to my house and needed to reconfigure the extender.

Works Great

TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4 GHz 450 Mbps / 5 GHz 450 Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 8
TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4 GHz 450 Mbps / 5 GHz 450 Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 8

Pros: Works great. Installation is quick.

Cons: Needs a disc to install. Too much unneeded software

Overall Review: I understand that some stuff needs a disc to install, but I don't see why this wireless card needs to have a disc to install. I understand that it came with utility software, that would be good for a disc, but not to actually get the wireless card to operate. There is a lot of useless utility stuff that comes with the install that is really just bloatware.
