This review is from: APC Black 5000mAh Mobile Power Pack M5BK
Pros: Good charge speed, multiple charges, extends battery range when power isn't close
Other Thoughts: I've used this on a trip out to LA with my Nexus 6. The best feature is that it provides a 2.4a port for quick charging for large phones like the Nexus. I can replenish 50% of the battery in about 20 minutes or so and that's enough to last a significant portion of the afternoon with light use.
When I need to use the phone hard and don't have a wall charger available this provides an extra hour or two of runtime from a full charge.
Over all for the price you can't go wrong with this.
Pros: Quick to setup
Cons: No significant throughput increase while on the extender at a great distance from your primary AP.
Other Thoughts: I set this device up in approximately 10 minutes including taking it out of the box. I placed it approximately 50 feet away from my AP in a part of the house where wireless starts getting drown out by walls etc. This device boosts the signal, however it doesn't improve throughput much. I'm able to get about 2 or 3 Mbit/s improved speed, and a much higher signal, but I'm not certain that it is worth the price of admission. Perhaps the greatest benefit is that the repeated signal off of this device penetrates my garage area and I can now use my wireless there without getting the random disconnects.
So if you're looking to increase throughput at a long distance from your AP then your best bet is still CAT6 in the wall to a dedicated AP. However if you just need to boost signal so devices can connect for low bandwidth applications then this is your device.
This review is from: MTX StreetAudio iX1 On-Ear Acoustic Monitor Headphones - Black
Pros: 1. Solid build quality.
2. Excellent bass response.
3. Excellent sound quality.
4. Aesthetically pleasing.
Cons: *See Below.
Other Thoughts: Four months ago I reviewed and gave these a 2 star rating because of a very tight fit. After being persistent with these and allowing the foam of the cans to break in, I'm adjusting my review up to 4 stars.
They still get uncomfortable, however I'm able to wear them for approximately four or five hours now. This is about the maximum time I'd ever wear them.
Give them time to break in and they're just about perfect, even considering the price. They have a premium feel and sound. For my at-home listening experience these have become my go-to cans.
