Works good

TP-Link TL-ANT2403N 2.4GHz 3dBi Wireless N Desktop Antenna
TP-Link TL-ANT2403N 2.4GHz 3dBi Wireless N Desktop Antenna

Pros: I received this free with my TP-LINK TL-WN951N. With the standard wifi antennas I had a 84% connection to my router (down stairs and across the house). When I attached the ANT2403N antenna to it my connection improved to 100%. The ability to position the antenna away from my PC (many other low band wireless devices connected, possible interference) I believe is what gave me the boost from 84% connection to 100% connection.

Cons: I wish the cable was a bit longer so I could keep it from taking up space on my small desk.

Overall Review: As others had said this antenna only has 3dB of gain. I wouldn't call this a con as it clearly states it in the product description. Honestly, if it wasn't free, knowing what I know now, I would not make the purchase. It is nice but not worth the price on it(22$) . Newegg adding this little extra on to the ANT2403N was what made me buy here instead of other vendors (2$ less plus prime shipping there).

Good Supply

Pros: Plenty of cables Powered all components aquatically.

Cons: Died after 2.5 years of use. She just wouldn't turn on one day. I contacted new egg and they replaced my power supply right away.

Overall Review: If this power supply keeps working in 2 years I'll keep it for my next build.
