TP-LINK TL-WN722N Wireless N150 High Gain USB Adapter, 150Mbps, w/4 dBi High Gain Detachable Antenna, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works like a charm. The router was in the basement and had to go through the floor and the connection was terrific. Now the router is in the kitchen and the signal has to go through two walls and it is still a fast connection. No dropped signals. This is on my exes computer and she now lives in northern Indiana. I live in Kentucky and there are times when I need to take over her computer to help her with something. She has a dual boot machine with Windows XP and Windows 7 Professional and I never have a problem with connectivity. This is an excellent wireless adapter.

Cons: Had a lot of trouble trying to get it working at first. We had Zone Alarm Free Firewall on her computer. We tried all kinds of things to get it to work and finally gave up. We removed ZA Fee and installed Comodo and that solved the problem. Tech support for the adapter told me to do a few more things to get it to work with ZA but by that time I was pretty irritated and had already switched firewalls so since it was working I just let it be.

Other Thoughts: I suppose there are some bugs that need to be ironed out due to the difficulty I had with the installation with ZA on the computer, but once you get it working, it's a pretty darn good product.

COBY CV-163 3.5mm Gold-Plated Connector Circumaural Deep Bass Stereo Headphone W/Volume Control
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Nice sound. Decent amount of base. Inline volume control. Nice looks. Cheap.

Cons: Circumaural my rear end! Circumaural means they fit OVER your ears. Supra-aural fit ON your ears. The inner diameter of the pads on these things are 1" x 1.5". WHO has ears small enough to fit INSIDE that? Specs say 'over the ear'...that's a LIE! The picture makes them look bigger. Definitely NOT for someone who wants 'circumaural'! There is a place at the crest of the headband that appears to be a folding point. I don't see what good that would do since the ear pieces don't swivel.

Other Thoughts: I'd return these simply based on them not being what the were supposed to be (circumaural), but since they were only $15.00 (including shipping) when I bought them, I'll just give them to one of my grandkids.

TRENDnet TEG-S80G Unmanaged 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Absolutely, positively simple to install. Plugged one cable from the router to this and then plugged my wife's computer, her laptop, and her XBox into this and voila...everything works and at full speed. Very low power consumption.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My wife's computer sits at the other end of the house from my computer and the router. I ran the wire through the floor and all the way to where her computer sits and then back up through that floor. I'd say it's about a 50' run. Other than drilling the holes and feeding the cable, it was simple as pie. I now own two of these.
