This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atom 64GB USB Flash Drive Model MKNUFDAM64GB
Pros: - Great read/write speeds (for a flash drive)
- Tiny footprint, almost disappears when connected to a laptop or desktop (think wifi dongle or wireless mouse dongle)
- Great price
- 2 year warranty
Other Thoughts: I bought this for my son's ASUS Nexus Player, as we are currently waiting for the Android M update to support installing apps/games onto USB storage. I tested the read and write speeds of this little device and it will work great for what I am needing it for. And man, this thing is tiny. Great storage space for such a small footprint.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HQmde Micro USB OTG To USB 2.0 Cable Adapter For Android SmartPhone: Samsung LG HTC
Pros: Simple Plug N Play to devices that support OTG cables.
Other Thoughts: This cable performs exactly as it should. I connected a spare 64 GB flash drive to it and then to my HTC One M9. The phone recognized the storage space immediately. Great little device.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BELKIN F9K1122 N600 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender
Pros: - Good speeds on both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands
- Attractive design
- Allows enough space for a standard plug to be plugged in above the unit on a standard electrical outlet
- Easy setup via computer (wifi) or smartphone
- User Manual on disk included (if you need it)
- External antennas for adjustment and hopeful longer range
Cons: The range extended for the 5 GHz band wasn't as much as I expected. It did however extend the already long range of the 2.4 GHz band. I was hoping the 5 GHz band would have a better boost. It did extend the signal however, but not by much.
Other Thoughts: I set this extender up by using the simple instructions on the back of the box. It mentions to plug the extender into a power outlet at the edge of the network coverage area. Then I used my HTC One M9 to connect via "wifi" to the device "Belkin.setup". Once a connection was established, I opened up my Chrome browser and navigated to the URL listed on the back of the box. Once I navigated to the landing page, I simple had to choose my first network SSID (in this case my 5 GHz) and enter in credentials. Once added it will then ask for the 2.4 GHz band.
I added both bands for testing but ended up removing the 2.4 GHz extension as Google's Chromecast doesn't do well with a repeater or extender.
Overall this item does what I need. I didn't see a huge increase in my 5 GHz coverage as I would have liked. I have moved the extender closer to the router but the results are generally the same. I do think this device does help extend the 5 GHz band but only a little bit. Still though, this is a device that is worth taking a test at.
