This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal X-Slim - Ultra Slim Laptop Cooling Pad with 160 mm Fan
Pros: Inexpensive. Looks nice.
Cons: It doesn't cool my laptop at all. From personal experience it doesn't feel like it is moving 70CFM. I doubt that it is. The fan is slow to start up and doesn't do what it is supposed to.
So it is another piece of useless PC junk.
Other Thoughts: I can't recommend this to anyone. I expected much better from Cooler Master.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCW-562 7ft. /Network Cable Cat 6 Black
Pros: This cable is a Cat6 and I got it on sale for a steal of $1 off the regular price.
It is the perfect length for many applications. Your basic black which is a good choice of color for an all around R45 cable. You can't go wrong even at full price.
The connections are a nice tight "click" fit. Buy one or more. You will only regret you didn't get it on sale.
Cons: The protective boot on the connector is a short term hassle. Only as long as it takes me to cut it off. Other than that no cons.
Other Thoughts: For those complaining about the protective boots simply get out a pair of scissors and remove them.
I am kicking myself for not buying a couple more when they were $1.49 with FREE shipping.
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: This router started out very well. Excellent signal strength and easy set up.
I will review this without swearing.
Cons: After setting up the wireless for my own laptop it started dropping connections more than before. Dropped connections seem to be increasing in frequency.
The signal is too good and not secure even though I set it up wpa2 and aes with a pass key. Two neighbors got laptops and claiming to be ignorant were piggy-backing off of my wi-fi signal and getting MY broadband for free.
All they had to do was search for available connections and click "connect" on mine to get it. No pass key needed.
If you dare to use the easy push button Wi-Fi protected setup (WPS) you can give all your neighbors your broadband for free too.
Other Thoughts: To say the least this is extremely disappointing and disconcerting. I am VERY angry. I will be getting another router ASAP and it won't be a D-Link.
For now this is a wired home. One reason I bought a laptop was for the wi-fi. But I can't used it that way with the D-Link 655. My word of mouth about this router will make your ears (and hopefully profits) burn.
Luckily I could track exactly who was using my $40/month high-speed broadband. I put an end to their joyride. Your signal strength is very strong but not secure. This is a seriously bad combination.
D-Link you let me down and lost a customer. I hope this will warn others. You don't deliver what you promise.
Also it would be nice to get the full manual instead of having to print my own copy from your site. Cheapskates. Shame on you all the way around D-Link. All about the profit, huh?
