This review is from: Rosewill RNX-EasyN1 Wireless-N 4.0 Dongle (1T1R) IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Data Rates WPA/WPA2 (AES, 64,128-WEP with shared-key authentication) WPS PIN, PBC (Hardware WPS Button) QoS-WMM
Pros: Its a wireless 2.0 adapter.
Driver is auto-ready with Win7 SP1.
Came with a cap.
Cons: Very Short range. So short that you might as well just go wired.
Wireless-N without the speed or 5ghz frequency.
Bulky and can take 2 usb ports if one is next to it.
Other Thoughts: I have been a huge Rosewill fanboy since buying my first product from them and still am, but they never should have produced this monstrosity. They have a newer model that is dual band and the same price. I bought 2 of those and will buy many more in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Insane bass!
Easy to setup.
Can pair with any speakers with multiple combinations.
Amazing gaming experience.
Movies make me feel like I am right there.
Cons: Power hog. 100w max and 26 minimum (estimated on site), this thing will quickly pump up your electric bill with any speaker combination set.
Other Thoughts: Paired this with a set of Bose Media Mate speakers that have been lying around since 04. I use a composite to 3.5mm cable going into the sub channel on my soundcard and then have the speakers going into the standard channel. The sound card does all the rest. It appears that you could convert a speaker set to plug into the woofer, but since I already had these cables, i took this route. My sound blaster card enables this woofer no matter what I have on. My Realtek only sees it with games and movies that have a 5.1 channel setup (no matter what settings I make in control panel or the Realtek audio program).
10" makes the placement tough for this, and placement must be strategic because the sound is so strong, the neighbors and housemates will surely hear it.
For the amount of power it requires, it is still insanely great for gaming and Movie nights. I just make sure to unplug it when not necessary.
Got it on sale during Christmas and do not regret it; however, after seeing my first electric bill, I am thinking that I should have just got a 65w 2.1 set for cheaper and let the Bose speakers collect dust again. If you have the budget, this thing cannot be beat, and even if you don't have the budget it is nice for a weekly gaming session or movie night. Just don't leave the thing on during web surfing or you'll be sorry.
This is more of a seller thing, but this was not double boxed and came with the picture on the side of it. Word from the wise, do not have it shipped to a home where it will sit on the front porch for hours.
This review is from: Netgear C3700 N600 WiFi Docsis 3.0 Cable Modem Router 2 In 1
Pros: Very easy setup for a Comcast/Xfinity based modem (still have to call despite what the packaging says - will not be removed from your bill).
Faster wireless N and G compared to router/modem that ISPs give.
Very nice Web based GUI.
Has a guest mode!
Cons: Only 2 ethernet ports.
Range (even N) is very short. Only get 3 bars in living room with a system that is 10-15 feet away.
Still had to call cable, but was much easier to setup than I thought.
Other Thoughts: Definitely a great option to kick the Modem rental fee to the curb.
Wireless power on this is a step up from those things too.
Had way better luck than everyone else here. It has been 2 months and so far I have yet to have a disruption of service from the ISP or router end and we are talking 8 hour movie marathon wireless streams over the weekends.
