Product Pick: Rosewill RNX-N150PC

     And welcome to another Product Pick!  Today on the stage we have the Rosewill RNX-N150PC, a PCI wireless N adapter.  Now, just like last time I reviewed a Rosewill device, I stress that this is a budget component.  But this superstar is just a dud.  No song sung here.
     This may seem to be a short review, but there isn't much to review.  Installation was easy enough, requiring little time.  But the interface that installed was mediocre.  It didn't seem to work very well in a windows XP system and it's design was clunky.
     And the worst part was the performance.  It performed worse than a Linksys wireless g adapter.  Even a 150n wireless adapter should perform better than a wireless g.
     Because of poor interface and even more poor performance net this thing only a single Digital Fruit.  This is not my pick, even for a budget box.
