Pros: Works well, feels sturdy. No complaints.
Other Thoughts: I bought this cable to replace the original for a laptop charging brick. The previous owner broke off the ground plug and I didn't feel comfortable running it like that all the time. This cable fit the charging brick without issues.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV128 32GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-32G-RBY
Pros: I've seen it write anywhere from 35MB/s to 90MB/s, according to Windows. It's significantly faster than my older USB 2.0 drive. The speed makes the 32GB capacity more usable. Transferring 32GB over USB 2.0 seems stupid to me now. Has a Retractable plug.
Cons: All plastic, but it still feels durable
Other Thoughts: Windows will write to the drive much faster with NTFS formatting than with exFAT or FAT formattingREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: This router is stellar! The thing I'm most pleased with is it's frequency and signal management. The routers I've owned before just tried to report the highest transfer speed. The Rt-AC66U actually detects other wireless radios and adjusts around them. If you have multiple devices connected wirelessly, it chops the bandwidth up and dedicates bandwidth to each device. So you REALLY get multiple wireless channels to each device. It brings the most out of devices that may not have the best wireless radios on them. My TV has a mediocre wireless adaptor on it, but this router helps it work so much better. The router has more support for Bittorrent than usual. You can actually give it a magnet link and it'll go to work. AiCloud is also great if you have a tablet/smarphone and good upload speed. It'll let you watch your stored videos over the internet when you're away. The real world range on this router is also crazy. I walked about 50 yards outside my apartment yesterday and had a 5Mbit signal, but it was still updating google maps.
Cons: This is just a minor gripe, but as of now, they haven't added support for Box.com, Dropbox, etc., but it will connect to Asus' own cloud storage. The online documents do hint that it may come available in the future. Also, I had to wipe the router when I did the latest firmware update. I'm not sure what happened, but it went into some sort of "safe mode" and I had to log into through Ethernet using a static IP of 192.168.1.100 and redo the firmware update.
Other Thoughts: I've owned two DIR-655s because they served me well and were stable and had a lot of features. One died from lightning, but it was so good I bought another. The RT-AC66U blows them away. No contest. I'm just waiting for a USB 3.0 802.11ac adaptor for my desktop and I'll be all set. If you can, use devices that have 5GHz radios, it's a lot less congested than the 2.4Ghz band right now.READ FULL REVIEW
