Pros: I've never had a bad TP-Link product. They always work exactly like they're supposed to, and they've got a nice, professional look to match. This was no exception.
The specs are nothing out of the ordinary, but they're up to date, and they're good quality.
Cons: The adapter is still too wide. If you plug it into a port that has a USB right next to it (as is often the case) you won't be able to plug in even nano receivers.
How is it that in 2014, we're still including mini-cd's with base drivers on a usb device? The Cisco Valet AM10 came with the drivers in the usb stick because they saw the writing on the wall back in 2010-11. It's time everyone else followed.
Other Thoughts: As affordable wireless AC adapters go, this is a solid buy. It does it's job well, and looks good doing it.
I wish it was smaller, and I wish companies would give up on the mini-cd idea. Otherwise, it's great.
Pros: It's a Netgear 5-port switch. It's easy to use, and it does it's job well.
Cons: It's only a few dollars lower than the gigabit version, which has significantly better specs (and as such, far less chance to become a bottleneck in the network).
In an ideal world, it'd be nice if this came in black.
Other Thoughts: There's really not much to say about this, it's a relatively basic piece of equipment.
All things considered, even in a home network scenario I'd spend the extra 4-5 bucks and get the gigabit version. I'm not saying that this can't do the job, in fact I haven't really seen it bog down. But if I'm at a point where I have enough things attached to my network that I need to buy a switch in the first place, it's a safe bet that I want as much simultaneous throughput as possible.
Pros: This thing runs very cool. The stock cooler is honestly overkill. I'm pretty sure they could've used less metal or skipped the fan and been fine.
It runs anything a chromebook can do seamlessly and instantly, but I wouldn't rely on it for much more than that. This has tested as being capable of some gaming at low quality and barely squeezing 30 frames out, but it could probably play older games fairly well.
It's not an i7. That's all you need to understand.
Other Thoughts: I'll be honest, I don't know that I would trust any of the lower end kabini processors, but this one does the trick quite nicely.READ FULL REVIEW
