TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs works great, beats NG 01/21/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Never any connection issues, never drops, no need to reboot...I can't believe I struggled w/ NG products for so long before giving up on the big name brand. Ugh. This thing has been trouble free since mid 2013. Never needed to restart it (unless the cable went down, ofc). Speed exactly as advertised, range covers a medium sized apt just fine.

Cons: well, it looks a bit cheap, but it *is* cheap and who cares? I can't really think of any cons, except of course that it's older 300mbs instead of fancy new 1200.

Other Thoughts: speed is more than adequate for games, audio. I never watch video so idk how well 300mbs does for that.
I tried quite a few routers from the best known names and was sorely disappointed in them all. This one just plain works, all the time. Yay! I'm using it with a tp-link dual 3db adaptor on the other end, works well together.

A4Tech KL-5 2-Tone 88 Normal Keys 7 Function Keys USB or PS/2 Mini X-Slim Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: small footprint, no numeric pad, wired. layout intended to be someone more ergonomic than the usual (ymmv). Media keys work fine, but a limited set not quite the ones I'd want (fixable to some extent via keybinds? dunno). I like the large enter key, but it's a bit out of the way. Works fine so far.

Cons: layout is a bit odd; 3 punctuation keys btwn L and Enter, instead of the usual 2. That took getting used to, but is workable. Noisier than you'd expect; a hollow clacking sound. Priced high for the build quality; it looks and feels quite a bit lower end than the usual cheap name keyboards.

Other Thoughts: I wanted something less wide than the usual 110key, to ease strain on my shoulders from long sessions. It does fine for that. I do wish it made less noise, but otherwise it seems ok. The price is a bit high for the el cheapo materials.

ARCTIC F9 PWM Fluid Dynamic Bearing Case Fan, 92mm PWM Speed Control,  43CFM at 23dBA

3 out of 5 eggs mixed blessing, doesn't help w/ warm rig much 08/07/2013

This review is from: ARCTIC F9 PWM Fluid Dynamic Bearing Case Fan, 92mm PWM Speed Control, 43CFM at 23dBA

Pros: variable speed (pwm), *very* quiet at low speed, moves slightly more air than my stock case fan at high speed, and at full speed my cpu temp shows a few degrees cooler. Decent fan, just not able to make any kind of dent in my slightly too warm mid tower.

Cons: noisy (too noisy for me) when it spins up under load. The end result of swapping a 3pin fixed speed case fan for this fancier pwm fan is that the temp bounces in a range 0-4C cooler than I had w/ the stock fan. At speed it is quite audible. So, not really a great trade off, as the peak temp is no better, and tying it into the cpu temp control loop just had it cycling (in my case, yours may very well be different).

Other Thoughts: this might work well for someone else. My case is struggling a bit w/ temp due to upgrades, and in my rig this fan really doesn't help much (and increases noise). For a case closer to thermal balance than mine maybe it'd be good, but for me it's no good. My cpu and gpu are both running 67C under full load, and using this instead of the stock case fan doesn't change the peak temp of either. It does cause the cpu to cycle btwn 62-67 for me, but so what...and it's too noisy at full tilt.
