Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: Once this thing is set up, it works great. It is small, capable of sucking power from a standard USB port (higher current port is a great idea), four jacks, and provides a rock-solid connection. I use to to connect an Obi-100 box. Works like a charm. Having two separate antennas is nice, and an upgrade over other clients that I have owned.

Cons: Well, the setup is a little finicky. I could not get WPS to work at all. However, after resetting the router, this thing connected like a champ after I manually entered the password.

Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I love the design of this thing. Simple, minimalistic, and it lets you put the fans exactly where they are most needed.

Cons: Well, the quality of the fans could be better. Out of the two fans, one of them sounds like a jet taking off due to bad bearings when it is first turned on. Typically, is makes a LOT of noise for about a minute or two. After that it quiets down.

Other Thoughts: Great product when it works properly.

AOC e1649Fwu Black 16

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a great 2nd monitor. The size is nice for throwing in a laptop bag. The fact that it can be used portrait or landscape is a nice bonus.

Cons: The brightness is not adjustable -- not really a big deal, but I thought that I would mention it. The stand does not allow much adjustment of the viewing angle -- once again, not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Some people have bashed this thing for the mini-USB port breaking. I have used this monitor rather heavily for the past four months. I have babied this thing -- kept it in a case, been careful not to pull on the cord, etc. It is still going strong! I simply understand that the jack may be a weak spot, so I am treating it accordingly. No problems so far.

Another thing to keep in mind is that this is a PRODUCTIVITY monitor. Not movies, and not gaming. This uses a standard DisplayLink chip. The fact that you can get video so good over USB is amazing. Simply stated, USB 2.0 does not really have the bandwidth to support high-quality video and gamine. That is not the fault of DisplayLink, or this monitor. That is the fault of USB 2.0. Great monitor if you keep your expectation real.

One more hint: there is a great piece of software called "DisplayFusion" that puts the menu bar at the bottom of all of your screens, along with fancier stuff. Using that, along with the keyboard shortcuts built into Windows 7 and above -- "Win" key combined with the cursor (arrow) buttons -- makes for a great combination.
