IOGEAR GFR381 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Support Compact Flash/Micro Drive/SD/SDHC/SDXC/Olympus DC and XD Card/microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC/Memory Stick/M2  Multi-Card Reader / Writer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Can't say. It worked once for a usb 2.0 interface.

Cons: I downloaded a few images off of the card on my laptop (USB 2.0) when I originally received the reader. Today, I plugged it into a 3.0 socket - the card did not power up. Tried the card out on my laptop again and it wasn't working there also.

Apparently when I took out the supplied cord and re-plugged it, it yanked out some of the guts of the reader's rear socket.

I pulled off the top casing to take a closer look and the socket had become partially unattached. Flimsy design. This reader would have never withstood regular use in the long term as it clearly as next to no durability.

I probably nullified the RMA I applied for after the whole socket came out (with great ease). Return shipping would have been 2/3 the price of the reader anyways.

First time I've been burned on NewEgg...

Linksys E3000-RM 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No more disconnects
content filtering
powerful signal, long range
useful LED indicators for plug-in ports (as well as other activity indicators)

Cons: I plugged two external hard drives into the usb slot and the software would not recognize the drives. Ultimately, I don't need a cloud-like storage system for my home network. It would have been nice if it worked, just knowing that option was available down the road. I have no idea if there's just some kind of incompatibility between the drive's interface and
the router itself, but this is a pretty big con in my opinion.

I'm on a mac and the beginner software would have been nice as it seemed somewhat useful when I plugged it into my PC (less used). But the browser control panel is, of course, where it's at.

Other Thoughts: I picked this up rectified at a ridiculous, must-buy price. I'm upgrading from an old DLink router that constantly dropped my portable wifi devices and bottle-necked frequently with too many wireless connections being shared. This linksys does just the opposite. I've even noticed faster webpage loading on wired connections.

My final candidates for purchase were the apple airport and this linksys. I feel happy about my choice in that the performance/features were about on par but I saved a good amount of money this route.

ASUS USB-BT211 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth Dongle
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs it works... 08/23/2011

This review is from: ASUS USB-BT211 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth Dongle

Pros: Used to connect a magic mouse, magic trackpad and bluetooh wireless keyboard. All peripherals are responsive without noticeable lag. Haven't tested distance - I'm running devices and this dongle within a 4 foot range.

Cons: None encountered.

Other Thoughts: Great price (on sale), 1 day delivery. I'm a happy camper!
