Blue Microphones - Yeti
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Shoddy Mic 01/14/2014

This review is from: Blue Microphones - Yeti

Pros: sounds good

Cons: Durability IS a problem! I had to buy 2 mics. The first one died just past it's warranty, (1 yr?) and the next one died 2 weeks before the warranty expired (1 yr I hope) These things sound good.. but they are not built to last at all. YOU WILL experience problems with the usb connector I guarantee it. First one failed until you wiggled the wire and then you only got one side of the mic to work. the other, dead as a door nail no matter how much you try to get it to work. DO NOT waste your money. Worse yet, when I tried to get the first one replaced, the one they sent out was a different model, and it was DOA. I opted to go with the Yeti one to get the work done on time and now.. a year later.. back to square one. NOT GOOD! If I could I would give it ZERO EGGS.

D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As the title suggests, I've always declared DLink was the best and setting up Dlink routers is always a snap. Childishly easy in fact. When you have an issue, Dlink tech support is very helpful. However, expect to wait 20+ minutes to get someone on the phone.

Cons: I bought this router to replace my old 804. Which by the way still runs just fine after many years of running 5 websites and an audio chat room. One month after setting it up it simply stopped all online access out of the blue. I don't use the wireless portion so this happened while hard wired. VERY annoying in that it happened after midnight and took 2 or 3 hours to find the problem, and that was only after I gave up and called Dlink. (and waited 25 mins on hold) Turns out I had to factory reset the router and manually replace ALL my settings. All 10 ports, MTU, WAN configs, ALL of it. The so called "config backup" does not work at all. Once I did factory reset and added my basic connection settings I was back online. So I re-loaded the config backup and BAM offline again! So.. I did a factory reset again, then proceeded to add each port, one by one and then REBOOT AND WAIT 60 secs after each setting was entered.

I truly hope this problem was a fluke and it doesn't happen again. If after a few months with no issues I will repost a more EGGciting comment.

PS.. and Newegg is ALWAYS #1

Other Thoughts: Hoping Dlink gets their act together soon. All their old routers worked fine. But now we need gigabit and so far, I don't see much to choose from.
