This review is from: Netgear ProSAFE GSS116E-100NAS 16-Port Gigabit Click Switch
Pros: This is a very well thought out switch. The features compliment the switch wonderfully. I am a huge fan of the mounting mechanism. It makes cable management so much easier. Which is always a huge challenge.
It's a switch so performance wise I just judge it by difference in speed vs directly connected to router. There is no difference. It's just as fast.
They also include some great features like the ability to turn the lights on or off. I personally leave them off because it's in a living room in the basement with the router and the wall of network ports going to all the rooms.
It's also priced rather good for a 16 port gigabit switch with such a great feature set.
Cons: There really are none that I can come up with.
I think the only complaint that someone could come up with would be that it's a little long but that is because of the built in power supply. It more than makes up for not having the wall wart though.
Other Thoughts: This is the perfect switch for someone who wired their house or works in a small business environment.
Another added bonus is that the power supply is built in, it has a single 2 prong plug. I think that is a crucial design feature that they decided to do. I can't stand that most switches have the typical wall wart plug that takes up 2-3 plugs or at the very least makes cable management more difficult.
Pros: The hardware is stable. I did not have any issues with dropped signals or loosing connection. It works as advertised.
I was able to max out my connection to the outside world no issues from across the house with this card.
I was also able to get rather fast internal network transfer speeds with this, I'm positive that the limiting factor was my router so I'm not going to give the specifics.
I initially installed it using their supplied software and fooled around with that, no good. I'll explain in cons.
I much preferred to use just the driver and point windows towards that instead of their software.
Cons: The supplied software is fairly bad. I would never use it personally and recommend the same to others. It's clunky and just awkward. I would just install it by pointing windows towards the specific driver.
It is what takes away the single egg. I've used a lot of wifi cards and the supplied software is always all over the place. For my personal computers and clients computers I always just let windows do its thing and just install the river with no software. It tends to work better almost every time.
Other Thoughts: For what it is, it's a great wifi card. I would recommend this to someone who is looking for a stable wireless connection that has a decent router to begin with.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 64GB Slider X2 USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X2-64GB
Pros: I've been using this flash drive for nearly two months now.
Previously I was using a corsair survivor. While able to get run over it was on the large side.
I much prefer the size of this one. It shows virtually no signs of wear and tear after spending almost two months on my keychain.
One of the biggest pros is the speed. It is fast. It took me no time to copy 10 HD movies over to this drive. I was getting a constant write speed of 125 megabytes a second. By far the fastest flash drive that I have ever used.
The read speed is similarly awesome. I was able to see read speeds north of 200 megabytes a second.
I personally like the lack of a cap and that it slides closed.
Cons: I personally don't have any cons that I can come up with for this one. It works as advertised and seems rather solid after a couple months of abuse.
Some people might also have issues with the lack of a cap but I have yet to end up with any lint or anything else suck in it.
Also some people might have issue with the plastic construction, I don't.
Other Thoughts: If someone asked me to recommend a larger, fast flash drive I wouldn't hesitate to offer this one up as a suggestion. It is unquestionably the fastest flash drive that I have come across to date. I'll be using this for years and the warranty will make sure of that if I were to encounter any issues.READ FULL REVIEW
