This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)
Pros: I live in an older home with walls comprised of plaster, brick and wire-mesh--yes it's a very old home. The Nighthawk was easy enough to setup using their user friendly netgear genie application suite (definitely easier than the cable provider standard interfaces). Once all setup, the signal was perfect. I noticed that it did decrease slightly when ever I had two or more of my thick walls between me and the router, but the signal by then was still a solid average. Same results upstairs on my second floor as well. If you want full bars across your target area, I recommend picking up a repeater. After reading several reviews I also opted to pick up the Netgear EX6200 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122589) to boost my signal--I don't have a single dead 2G or 5G zone in my old, old house now. Gentlemen, I've had this setup running for a little over a month now, and I haven't had a single signal drop, a hiccup, or wife nagging me that the internet isn't working. I snagged this router up on Newegg for $189, but it also came with a free Chromecast (which is also awesome btw). The nighthawk also looks great with its sexy stealthy curves, and three antennae...when it comes to wifi coverage and reliability--you get what you pay for and this is definitely worth the investment. There are now mounting points on the back as well if you want to put it up on the wall, I think that may be a revision as other reviewers did not have it on their routers.
Cons: Wall mounting was kinda hard.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA411KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Mini Powerline Adapter Starter Kit
Pros: I purchased these on black friday 2012 in order to extend my internet connections through my 1942 Colonial Home, for the price t'was right. The wiring in my home isn't the newest and is least 25 years old and these were able to work just fine under such conditions. I currently have mine hooked up to my media streamer in the bedroom and I now alas receive HD quality streams. I plan on buying another one to wire my rig to. Very innovative and convenient, no complaints...yet.
Cons: Wired connections only.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill 7-sheet Cross-Cut Paper, Credit Card and Staples Shredder (RSH-407CB)
Cons: Okay, So I've had this junker for a week now and it's already dead...after I put a credit card offer envelope in it got jammed...cleared the jam, and it refuses to work now. I can hear my dad in my head now..."You get what you pay for!"READ FULL REVIEW
