SAMSUNG 64GB microSDXC Flash Card With Adapter Model MB-MP64DA/AM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Fast, was able to write megabytes of data per second.
- Comes with SD adapter.
- Works with Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone and a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition tablet. I bought one of these MicroSDXC cards for my tablet, and everything seems to work great. It recognized it and was able to use it right out of the box.

ASUS PCE-AC66 Next Generation AC Dual-Band Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 1750Mbps (450/1300Mbps) Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Utility program allows using both bands at the same time. Simply open it up, select your 2.4 GHz network, and press Connect. After it connects, do the same for your 5 GHz network. Even though it indicates only one is connected, if you look in Windows, it'll have "Connected" next to both networks, and if you open the wireless network adapter's settings, you'll see increased speeds (upwards of 1300+ Mbps with good signals).

Cons: See previous review. Earlier I had a problem connecting both bands at the same time, but I figured it out. It's not intuitive, but it is possible with the current version of the software utility.

Other Thoughts: This is a reply to my previous review.

While I'm at it, here's my motherboard since others seem to be having trouble with theirs; it's an H61 chipset rather than the newer Z87: BIOSTAR H61MGC

Also I have new statistics to report, these stats are while using both bands at the same time:

Lowest I've seen: 400 Mbps
Highest I've seen: 1350 Mbps
Averages between: 800 - 1300 Mbps

All in all, I never notice any latency issues on my LAN or while using the network card. I have both this adapter and a Realtek Gigabit built-in NIC that is also plugged in, both are connected to the same LAN, so even if this adapter were to stop working, I have a fallback method (or vice versa, say the built-in adapter stops, I have this adapter as a fallback).

Dyconn HUB4B - USB 3.0 4-Port Hub With Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Bad choice, go find something better 07/05/2013

This review is from: Dyconn HUB4B - USB 3.0 4-Port Hub With Power Adapter

Pros: - USB 3.0
- Multiple plugs
- AC adapter provides power to USB devices

Cons: - Died after two months, it no longer powers on and devices plugged into it aren't detected from the system (tried both Windows's Computer Management tool and Linux's dmesg command-line tool).
- After 2 weeks I started to notice that if this hub was bumped and/or touched slightly, resulting in wires moving, Windows would see devices get removed and then plugged back in quickly; this tells me that there's loose wires internally, or they're not making good contact.
- Moves around easily since it's extremely lightweight and gets pulled around by the USB wires that are plugged into it; recommend a sticky adhesive for it, and sticking it to a solid surface like your desk or side of your computer

Other Thoughts: I never applied a stick adhesive to stop this device from constantly being pulled by USB wires that were plugged into it.

Honestly, I'd stay away from this hub if you can. Find something else.
