Smart Strip SCG3 6 Feet 7 Outlets 900 Joules Power Strip w/ Autoswitching Technology
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's a nice solid power strip that works as advertised.

Cons: NA

Other Thoughts: I wanted to use my Laptop as the Master and have my external monitor and printer turn off automatically when I turned off my laptop. I tried 2 other "smart" power strips but they were very unreliable. The other 2 power strips seemed to power off randomly, even when my laptop was turned on. I guess the power consumed by my laptop would sometimes fall below the strip's threshold and everything would click off for a few seconds and then come back on. It was very annoying, to say the least.

This power strip does not have this problem. I didn't even have to adjust it, it just worked perfectly right out of the box. This is a great power strip, and having the option to adjust it (most others don't have that option), makes it even better. Don't waste your money and time with the rest, just buy this one and move on to more important things :-)

ASUS N550JK-DB74T Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.50GHz) 16GB Memory 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M 2GB GDDR3 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Less expensive than other brands
Good specs
Looks Good

Cons: Very glossy/reflective screen
Terrible Speakers
Terrible Warranty

Other Thoughts: I wanted to hold off on writing a review until I had a chance to use it for a few months. Overall, the actual laptop is quite nice both in aesthetics and performance. I have not yet had the screen issue that most people had experienced, hopefully I never will. Unfortunately, there are 2 significant issues with the laptop.

1. The speakers are simply horrible! I know that they are supposed to be great but they are NOT. Not only is the sound quality comparable to that of a 10-year-old Dell but immediately you can tell that the sound is louder from the left side of the system than from the right. Apparently this is "normal" as it is meant to be listened to from a distance like a "boom box"...or some Malarkey like that.

2. After about 2 months, the power adapter (power brick) started to cut in & out randomly. Sometimes while playing a game it will click off for a second and then click back on. I tried to see if Asus would just send me a new power adapter ( I would return the defective adapter once I received the replacement) but they would not. Asus wanted me to send the entire system back to them. I immediately refused and am now using another power adapter that I had from an old Asus laptop. It seems to work just fine.

Overall, it's a nice machine, when it works, but I would gladly pay a little extra for a Dell, next time, so that I would not have to deal with Asus' ridiculously outdated warranty process. It's just not worth it!

Etekcity® HDMI 2 Port 2x1 or 1x2 Bi-Directional Switch Splitter with HDCP Passthrough Supports 4K X 2K (4096x2160) and 3D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Small and compact.

Cons: Ultra, blindingly, bright LED lights.

Does not always transfer the sound to the new device when switched. Once in a while there appears to be some sort of interference causing "snow" or random flickering white pixels on the computer monitor.

Other Thoughts: While the bright blue LEDs can be covered up with tape, the random "snow" effect makes it virtually unusable.
