This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader TEW-820AP
Pros: - Small form factor
- WPS button (if you use it)
- Super simple setup
- Pre-encrypted wireless out of the box
- 3 year warranty
- Small packaging (didn't over do it with too much box)
Cons: - 10/100 Mbit LAN port (WHY?)
- Feels very cheap
- Though the price is small, just another $20-$25 could get you a entry level AC wireless router.
- You need a wireless AC enabled device to connect this device to your network (only mentioning this in case you don't have a wireless AC device, but didn't deduct an egg for this)
Other Thoughts: I tested this on a Netgear N600 Dual Band Router (WNDR3400), which is my old router as I have replaced it with an AC wireless router already. Let me start with saying, I deducted an egg because a 10/100Mbit port was used. Why on Earth would you do this and not add a Gigabit port? It can't cost that much more to manufacture. Sorry that's gonna cost you an egg...
Overall I thought this little guy was a unique and interesting option versus upgrading to an AC 5GHz router. It was really easy to set-up and was up in running in under 10 minutes. In regards to performance, I averaged 75 to 90 Mbps with this device, pulling files down from my server on my wireless Windows 10 tablet.
I could see a slight difference in speeds using the AC versus N built in the router, however if that is your only reason of purchasing this item, I would just buy a new wireless AC router. I find this more useful if you have a single band router (2.4 GHz), as this could be a great upgrade, giving you the less crowded and faster 5 GHz band. If you've got a single frequency router operating on the 2.4 GHz band, then buy this little upgrader.
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
