TRENDnet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader TEW-820AP
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Too hard to configure or access 06/30/2015

This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader TEW-820AP

Pros: 5ghz band

Cons: Doesn't provide DHCP, must attach to DHCP server
Instructions wrong
Doesn't connect on
Setup wizard can't login (login fail all the time)

Other Thoughts: In the instructions it says the address is, but it doesn't respond at that address. You need to plug it into a network with DHCP and find the address it gets assigned.

The setup wizard will find it, but cannot login - you will always get "login failed".

When you find it on the network, you will get to a first time config. You can set it to client and if the network is up it will connect to the AP, and if you have another way to access it (a computer direct to the same AP), you can access them.

Out of the box it is in some kind of zombie mode, neither client nor AP - it won't serve DHCP over wifi or ethernet, but will request an IP over ethernet.

It seems to do better after it is out of this zombie mode into client or AP, but getting it there is painful

For config-once, leave for a year, probably not so bad. For use as a portable, it will be a pain, particularly if you leave it in client mode so there is no AP to set it - probably will need a factory reset.

GAMDIAS Ares GKB6010 Gaming Keyboard 16.8 Million Backlit Colors, 9 Macro Keys, Premium Micro-Processor

5 out of 5 eggs Takes a bit and special software, but great 06/29/2015

This review is from: GAMDIAS Ares GKB6010 Gaming Keyboard 16.8 Million Backlit Colors, 9 Macro Keys, Premium Micro-Processor

Pros: Flexible
Great macro capability
Nice backlighting
Good feel.
removable wristrest.
multiple profiles.
extra keys for macros

Cons: Zeus logo is not adjustable, yellow, and too bright.
Preprog keys will sometimes cause pain by switching modes.
Hera software is too much eye-candy, not enough function, but necessary
accidentally hitting a key can change config or profile, and it is hard to get back where you were.

Other Thoughts: I like this keyboard. I have several key sequences programmed in the extra keys so I can quickly navigate and also do "off the cuff" when doing edits.

Do you really need that ugly, complex skin on the config software (also for the mouse)? It doesn't even work right. Minimize just exits (without saving or warning).

The dim red back-light is perfect for a darkened room, but you can make it any color or brightness of your choosing, though I wish the max red was a bit brighter.

It has a good feel - good depth, even though no "click" feedback. I don't have a problem. I like the gaming stuff too, but even as a normal keyboard this works great.

After getting over the ugliness of the config software, you can do anything with it (and the matched mice as well). I can do long, complex macros to manually launch or run a sequence of commands on a series of files even if the base software doesn't support it. That is the main feature I wanted.

I can reassign any key but there are 9 extras. One problem is three are right near the right control/shift and I accidentally hit them so If they are active (which is the default), bad things can happen.

But overall, a very satisfying purchase.

OLED Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Oximiter 06/23/2015

This review is from: OLED Fingertip Pulse Oximeter

Pros: Common AAA batteries
Easy to read and see
Locks in fast.

Cons: A little big/thick.
Displays are right or left handed, not both.

Other Thoughts: I sometimes do hiking in higher altitudes, and wondered if I'm winded because of exercise or lack of oxygen. This tells me. It also works for normal exercise, I can see both my heartrate and blood oxygen.
