ASUS USB-AC53 Dual-band Wireless-AC1200 Adapter Review

Legit Mods and Ends Reviews


As more and more devices choose to embrace the latest 802.11ac standard, there is a growing number of PCs and laptop devices where upgrading is not straightforward.  A while back, we looked at a couple of different solutions to make your home or office computers faster – namely by using an internal card and antenna array for your desktop computer.  Today, we look investigate a way to upgrade your laptop or notebook, this time using an USB-compatible device.


ASUS has been on the forefront of AC-enable networking devices and their router, so we are expecting great things out of the ASUS USB-AC53 Dual-band Wireless-AC1200 Adapter. The ASUS USB-AC53 adapter was designed to deliver the 802.11ac to any “legacy” device looking for a boost in speed.  You can get the ASUS USB-AC53 for less than $50 right now from vendors like


The AC53 works over an 802.11ac WiFi network so we expect to see a lot more speed out of it than we do our normal 802.11n devices.  In fact, the speed rating for the 5GHz channel is 867Mbps, and 300Mbps for the 2.4GHz channel. Thus, the device is being marketed as a Wireless-AC1200 device (as opposed to our ASUS RT-AC66U Wireless AC1750 which gives a maximum of 1300Mbps on the 5GHz channel and 450 on the 2.4GHz).


The USB-AC53 is about half the size of a sharpie marker and comes with a USB extension cradle and cable so that you can easily attach it to your computer.

Best 3-ingredient Marinade Ever!

You'll need some boneless skinless chicken or turkey cut into strips.
(in all probability you could do this with bone in meat...but this makes for easier eating)

Here's the marinade:
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup soy sauce
2 Cups of lemon lime soda

Pour that over the top of the meat and stir it around.
Cover it and refrigerate overnight...or up to 2 days or so.

The Best Things to Buy in July

Summer's in full swing, and with it comes a bevy of deals on household furnishings and geeky toys. Here are the best things to buy this month.

Every month, we look back at the best times to buy anything during the year, and pull out items each month to remind you what's coming. Obviously, none of this is to say you should go on a shopping spree—but if you've been holding off for a lower price on something, these are the things that get the sale treatment in June.

Computers: Digital Trends notes that most new computers come out in June, since Intel and AMD are ramping up for their new stuff (like Intel's Haswell line). If you want the latest and greatest, now's the time to buy, but if you're okay with last year's models—that might have slightly lower graphics power and battery life—you can probably catch them at a discount while all the new stuff rolls out. Lots of sales are geared for back to school, too, so you may be able to find some discounts there—especially if you can get your hands on a student discount (even if you aren't a student).Furniture: New furniture comes around in August, says Jackie Hirschhaut of the American Home Furnishings Alliance. Stores will start having clearance sales now to clear out for the slightly different fall inventory. There are some exceptions—like mattresses (which you should buy in May) and office furniture (which is on sale in May and August)—but you should be able to find quite a few things in July.Home Decor: Real Simple notes that July is right smack dab in the middle of wedding season, which means retailers are lowering prices on anything that can count as a wedding gift. So that means things like table linens, dinnerware, and other decorative items are on sale this month.Tools: The Father's Day sales from last month may be over, but July still sees some great prices for tools, according to Dealnews. Make sure to shop before Father's Day for the best price, and if you aren't sure what to buy, check out our list of the essential tools for any level of DIY.PC Games: PC gamers are probably familiar with summer as the best time to buy, when online sales (like the Steam Summer Sale) are at their peak. If you play console games, the best you can do is usually wait until your desired games go on sale, usually a few months after they've been released.We'll be posting updates for you guys every month, so you're aware of the deals going on all year round. If you're curious to see what's coming up, you can always check out our full best time to buy guide to see the entire year at a glance. And, if you know of any deals we didn't mention, share them in the comments below.
