This review is from: Tenda FH1206 High Power Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Router
Pros: The box is kind of nice looking.
Cons: Too many to list.
Other Thoughts: Rarely has any piece of hardware managed to irritate me this much without being completely DOA. I got it to use as a wireless access point upstairs for my home network. My first surprise is that it doesn't come with a manual at all, merely a "quick start" guide. I didn't think too much of that at first, because I prefer e-manuals anyway. I hopped over to the manufacturer's site only to discover there's no manual there, either.
But I'm a big girl now, I figured I could deal with setting the router up as an access point without some silly manual. I plugged the router in, carefully configured it, and tried to connect. It kept telling me I had the wrong password (you know, the one that I had assigned less than two minutes previously). While I was still trying to figure out what I'd done wrong, the router reset itself to factory defaults. I (grudgingly) went and got the silly thing, plugged it back in to the computer, and went through the whole configuration drill once again. Exactly the same thing happened. It refuses to hold configuration information.
Finally gave up and connected with the default information. The good news? I was able to connect. The bad news? It drops the connection periodically for no reason. I'm giving up completely and returning this worthless piece of plastic to Newegg.
Pros: Sturdy, good sound
Cons: The clip for attaching it to clothes is fragile
Other Thoughts: If somebody had asked me to design some in-ear headphones, this is nearly exactly what I would have come up with. The flat cables are much more sturdy than the little round cables on most headphones. The mic and remote button work well whether I have them plugged into my phone or my tablet. The 3.5mm plug is a 90-degree plug, which reduces a LOT of stress on the connection. The only fault I can find is that the included clip (for this pair anyway) fell off in my hand first time I touched it. I think that it was probably cracked during manufacture and simply not noticed. Luckily, I have other clips available, or even a paper clip will do in a pinch.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I love the S-Pen. I love being able to take notes on the tablet as if it were a piece of paper. It completely rejects the palm, fingers, etc., so it is possible to hold the pen naturally and write without stray lines jumping into existence. Video quality is good. The speakers are loud enough to be useful.
Cons: Very few. The charging/sync cord is very short. It can't be charged with anything other than a Samsung charger. That is MOST annoying. However, I plan to test it and see if it actually charging (but slowly) with a non-Samsung charger, or truly not charging at all. I discovered that an HP Touchpad actually charges even when it says it's not.
Other Thoughts: Aftermarket charging/sync cords are available to overcome the deficiencies of the included one. Also available are OTG adapters so that one can use flash drives, keyboards, mice, and such with the tablet. I really love the whole thing. I wouldn't have paid $600 for it, but I got mine refurbished and I think it was an excellent deal. I don't see myself replacing it for a VERY long time.READ FULL REVIEW
