This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PB10400 :10400mAh Dual-USB Ultra External Portable Charger/ Power Bank,2A Fast Charging, Compatible with iphone, ipad and all iOS and Android Devices, Practical Flashlight
Cons: For some, it may be too large or add some bulk to your bag
Some devices (Fitbit Surge, MS Band) cause the device to stop charging and you have to push the button to restart it
Other Thoughts: I’ve used this multiple times on a number of devices (MacBook Pro, Dell Venue 11 Pro, Lumia 920, FitBit Surge, MS Band, Bluetooth headphones). I like the capacity of this device, while it did not charge my Venue or MacBook to max, it gave me the chance to finish before being forced to shut it off. Smaller devices (mobile phones, fitness trackers)
I recently took this on a business trip and it performed as expected. While using GPS on my phone in the car, this kept the phone from draining as it normally does. It provided a quick charge to my MS Band and as noted above, it allowed me to finish a movie as the battery on my Dell was nearly drained. It is big and bulky compared to other options, so the backpack I use for travel was protruding in the area I store gadgets like this.
Forgiving the size of the device, this will be included in my travel bag in the future.
This review is from: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 - 3 PCs
Pros: - Install was quick and easy
- Updates regularly
- After rebate and discount, I only paid for shipping!
- Website is easy to use and informative (licenses, PC's and coverage
Cons: - Kind of naggy when in trial mode, I've heard it's worse when you license expires or is nearing expiration
- 1 of 3 PC's will has Kaspersky turn off regularly
- Interface is a little frustrating at times, setting scan schedules feels buried
Other Thoughts: Given the reviews of MSE/Defender in the media recently and how cheap this was, I figured it was time to try out a paid AV product again. All my PC's were clean after installing and running a scan, but for $3... I'll run it for a year.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Easy setup
- TP-Link firmware is easy to use and navigate
- Strong signal
- Good range
- 3 antennae’s
- Gigabit ports (should be standard, but some ISP’s don’t think so)
- Dual bands
Cons: - Print server tool has to be installed on all computers (OSX & Windows clients available)
- I found the Print Server tool to be tedious use, we’ll see how it works over time
- Large footprint that can only be position flat on a surface
Other Thoughts: I first installed this in my own home, coverage was good for our small place. But I am often spending time at my father-in-laws place troubleshooting his network issues, so I installed this there where I hoped it would make a difference.
I disabled the wireless on his hamster powered CenturyLink DSL modem/router and plugged the TP-Link WDR3400 N750 in to port 1. It made a HUGE difference right away. His house is known for destroying wireless and cellphone signals, but this cut right through and was accessible all across the home. His TV connected instantly as did all his devices.
He doesn’t need 802.11AC and I already have an AC router, so I can’t knock it for not being AC. But if you’re in the market for an 802.11N router or struggling with subpar performance from your ISP’s hamster powered router, consider buying this. The price is reasonable, the performance is surprising and you always have the option of switching to DD-WRT if you find a need for more advanced functions or need more access to the inner workings.
- I did not try the WPS function
- I did not use a storage device on this yet, but I am seriously considering it as a replacement to his current data sharing solution
- Config was done the ‘old way’, via the interface
