TP-LINK TL-WN725N  Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs NOT FOR EVERYONE-BUT DOES WORK AS INTENDED 12/10/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN725N Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: Size-nano size means less protrusion from USB port

Price-Price to performance ratio is good

Installs easily on Windows 8.1 ( see cons for Windows 7

Connectivity LED is easy to see

Can reach advertised 150Mbps speed if close to router

Good for General web surfing duties

Cons: Single 2.4Ghz mode only

Nano size with small internal antenna means shorter range

To get to work with Windows 7, had to download driver from Manufacturer web site

Bandwidth at moderate range is limited

Not so good for large file transfer or streaming of video files, look elsewhere if this is your intent for this adapter

Other Thoughts: After trying this little adaptor out for awhile, I don't have a lot of bad things to say about it, but by the same token, unless you have a specific need for a single channel adapter, there is not a lot of good things to say.

Yes it does work as intended, but range and bandwidth are going to suffer because of it's small size. Do not expect this to function as well as the internal adapter in a modern day laptop, because it just won't. Where this little adapter comes into play is if you have an older laptop that you want to add wireless N to, or if you have a desktop that's relatively close to your router that you want to add Wireless N to for web surfing.For those cases it will work well.

At it's price point, and the market that it should be intended for, it is a nice little Wireless N adapter. For someone with
a router that transmits in both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, it's not something you would want to consider with all the dual band choices out there.

I will give the TP-Link TL-N725N adapter a good solid 4 star rating for what it is and what it can do, but the end user will need to decide if they can get by with limited range and bandwidth just to save a little space in a USB port.

The opinion expressed in this review is strictly my own for having used this item for a period of thirty days. I am neither compensated by NewEgg nor the manufacturer for performing this review.

CORSAIR HXi HX750i (CP-9020072) 750W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Corsair CP-9020072 Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Built with top quality components and heavy heatsinks

Platinum qualified rating (90% efficiency)

Extremely quiet even under full load

Flat modular cables to make your build very neat

Cooling fan test switch so you can prove to yourself that the fan does work (it only turns on when needed)

Corsair Link software to monitor hardware

Rock solid stable voltages even under load

Power draw at startup and under load well within reason for a PSU this size. At the wall wattage reading was no more for this 750 unit than the 600 watt unit it was subbed for. That is efficiency.

Corsair 7 year warranty..darn good reason to buy this

Cons: Not really complaints if you do your homework and know what you are buying, but:

Price...do you really need to pay this much money for a 750 watt Platinum rated PSU? Some would say yes, and I can't argue with the quality of the built and the warranty, but maybe a few bucks less would make this an optimum buy.

Size...primarily length...this should be considered for a bottom mount type case only. Besides..as heavy as this unit is, you wouldn't want it at the top of your case anyway.

Other Thoughts: Corsair presents a very sturdily built PSU in one of the best appearing boxes I've ever seen. I honestly felt I was unboxing a quality stereo amplifier (and darn near as heavy).

Top notch heatsinks, Japanese caps and some of the best onboard components I've seen in any power supply make this a real workhorse. Now does everyone need it, probably not. But if you are a gamer or designer driving some serious video cards or overclocked CPU's and GPU's, this is what you want for your build.

My only advice to Corsair would be to try to make the price on this line a little more reasonable. Given the choice on a customer's build to use this PSU if it was $30 or so cheaper, and another brand of unit, I would put this in the customer's unit for peace of mind knowing it was built to last.

This is definitely a 5 Egg rated PSU and a high quality component by Corsair.

Kinyo SB-033D Home Theater Sound Bar
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs PASS THIS ONE BY-INVEST IN A BETTER UNIT 11/02/2014

This review is from: Kinyo SB-033D Home Theater Sound Bar

Pros: CHEAP

Cons: CHEAP.

Lack of Digital Input

Output power is no where near what is stated on rating

Remote feels like it will break in your hand and has no range at all. Very directional. Pretty much have to be in line of site and no further away that 20 feet.

Does have a subwoofer output but when connecting a powered sub, you have virtually no control over the sub

Other Thoughts: I can't honestly think of any reason for anyone to buy this soundbar. Yes, it is inexpensive. You get what you pay for which is just some novel designed speakers that are no louder than what you have in your TV already.

I purchased mine from NewEgg Flash, used it for a few days and just got frustrated with lack of volume and poor performance out of the remote.

I ended up putting this one back in the box and will gift it to someone that is desperate, and I bought a refurbed Samsung unit with a bluetooth sub. By the time you try to find a small powered sub to match to this unit, you can buy a much nicer unit with a sub.

I couldn't honestly recommend this unit to anyone. Definitely one of my poorer choices in purchasing from NewEgg.
