5.0 out of 5 stars Had to play with antenna angles for max speed, but excellent!, July 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I replaced my Cisco/Linksys WMP600N with this and went from 17Mbps average / 40Mbps Max to a minimum of 40Mbps and averaging 50-60Mbps and hit 80+Mbps quite a bit.

If I put all the antennas directly vertically, I only get about have the speeds. I tilted one at the middle notch and left one vertical...the other one (the middle antenna) I put between them both.

My wireless AP is a Cisco C819 so pretty high level, it's antennas are all vertical. Technically my client's antennas should be parallel too, but it's not working based on textbook answers.

It's working Åwesome though and that's all that matters to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars A few of the batteries were duds, but this is still an Åwesome value!, July 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Some of the batteries didn't last, but over all many did work as well as the ones I paid a ton for just one of them or a two pack. I can live with a few duds at this price.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'd avoid this card if you run Windows 7 or later (64 bit, perhaps 32 bit as well), July 23, 2014
I'd avoid this for any Windows 7/8/8.1 64-bit install.

I loved this card when I got it. Totally reliable and speeds as good as my wired connection in practice. However; when I went from Windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit and later Windows 8/8.1 64 bit my speeds that I was getting even on low end laptops were surpassing it.

I am a Cisco CCNP in Route and Switch and have a CCNA in Wireless, so I'd say I am on the highly proficient side of getting these things up and running well.

Anyway I gave up and purchased a TL-Link TL-WDN4800 / 900N a few weeks ago (and then another when I found out Amazon shipped my card in the same box my kid's pillows came in and he threw the box away ;)). I didn't have experience with TL-Link and to be honest they wouldn't have been my selection except that this card was #1 in the category.

I have to say I agree! my best speeds were 40Mbps and during the day I swapped cards I was only getting 17Mbps with the Cisco card. I have seen averages in the 50-60Mbps range and the same time I was only getting 17Mbps with the Cisco card I saw 86Mbps with the TL-Link! The real issue was sometimes the old card would drop to 5-6Mpbs, it has to be some driver issue or hardware incompatibility. I have not seen speeds lower than 40Mbps with the TL-Link card.

The new card I have is PCI-E so if you only have PCI then that is a factor. I cannot comment on what PCI card is better right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Sam's Club for giving my fiancee the wrong bottle., June 2, 2014
First, my fiancee always smells nice. I am a big fragrance guy myself even up to Creed levels. I like them to be non-overpowering and applicable to the situation. For me, I love Swiss Army Classic, another totally random find. I used to be a Dior Fahrenheit guy, but since the refresh it wasn't good. In my last order of it, I got a sample for the Swiss Army and been with it 2 years now.

She likes Viva La Juicy...I didn't care for it. I bought her Victoria Secret Angels since I liked that one better, but it wasn't really the best.

I don't ever want to tell my partner she should smell like another I was with in the past.

We went to Sam's and she wanted to buy a different Juicy Couture fragrance to try. I didn't like it (nor Sam's) but I am glad those idiots messed her order up.

This has been the best fragrance I have experienced with her.

Its light, and inviting. I love holding her close, It's not expensive so a great daily spray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best deal out there!, April 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My fiancee loves this. She has very long hair and this keeps it looking healthy and vibrant even in her 40's (don't tell her I said that!).

I'd like to add that I purchased this August 2013 and the price was $53.99 through Empire Shop here on Amazon. Sadly they don't have anymore. Even at the current price it's a great deal compared to the store. She's only half way through the bottle so far. She stands about 5'7" and her hair goes past her waistline to almost the bottom of her 'cheeks' :)

People have told her there are people out there that would kill for her hair, ask her for what she does, what products she uses, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality is still high, April 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am not sure of others saying these have gotten too thin and break easy. They are strong enough for most tasks that don't require a cloth or leather glove.

If you are an allergy sufferer to Latex, these work great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great shut-off valve., April 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I don't know how manufacturers can mess up such a simple thing. I have had those that seized up, leaked, restricted water flow too much...the Dramm valve works awesome, it's my third one I have bought now. I will never switch to something cheaper.

More a review for my fiancee, but I buy this stuff. :)

Came with a safety seal still on it and just like the bottle the Mall Store charges much more for.

Great Deal from Amazon. It's a light scent and fits great in a purse and for travel.
