This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager Slider 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSL3B-64GB
Pros: Very fast
Decent price for specs
Cons: USB 3.0 quit working after 9 months. (see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: This drive quit being recognized in any USB 3.0 slots. Recognized in USB 2.0, just not 3.0. I've tested the USB 3.0 on several different machines. All recognized the drive in USB 2.0, none in USB 3.0.
This is my second USB 3.0 drive from Corsair and both have died/quit working properly in under a year. They have amazing RAM and other products, but maybe USB 3.0 flash drives aren't their thing.
This review is from: NETGEAR R8000-100NAS Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wireless Router
Pros: Speed, Range, Setup, honestly everything I've seen/experienced about this router is a Pro.
Cons: The only 2 Cons I could think of was 1: Price is a little high. 2: No link aggregation, but that's not a big deal considering this isn't a managed switch.
Other Thoughts: I got this on a "get a free cable modem with purchase" deal. I didn't need the modem, but my uncle did. So I sold him the modem for retail price, and sold him my old router making this router half-price to me.
The range is very impressive. I was able to stream (via wireless LAN) a movie on my phone and another movie on my tablet from the middle of the road on the other side of my neighbor's house. No lag, no skips. The birds-eye distance would be a good 100-130 feet. The blinds were all closed, and the signal went through several walls. Previously the range, on my old wireless N, barely made it upstairs with any doors closed.
From un-boxing to "fully setup" with all the security settings set I spent a total of 30-45 minutes. Considering I've never setup a Netgear device before, thus not familiar with their GUI/interface, that's pretty impressive to me. After changing settings the apply/reboot time on this router was very fast compared to any linksys or dlink router I've setup.
Pros: Decent picture
Worked pretty good while it worked
Concealed cabling, so a pair of scissors won't be able to cut the dangling wires.
Cons: After 10 months there was about quarter of an inch of water inside the camera.
Other Thoughts: I noticed in my software that the camera was flickering and shorting out, so I went to check/change it out with another camera. The camera was about 10 ft in the air on the side of a building. When I took this camera down, I noticed water trapped inside of the camera. I chuckled a little as I was taking it down, because on the back side of the camera is etched "WATERPROOF". Apparently not...READ FULL REVIEW
