This review is from: ENERMAX KM001W Black RF Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
Pros: low power consumption
soft touch typing
good signal even in another room
Cons: as of now none!
Other Thoughts: This keyboard and mouse works great.. the wireless usb adapter is so tiny you might loose it so just keep it plugged in and you wont. the signal is great and the typing just flows as if it is a wired keyboard. the keys are easy and soft to touch type... I love this keyboard and when my friends come over to game they ask how much I paid for it and they don't believe me. I have bought similar wireless sets at $60 a pop.. this is defiantly a great value for the money. I am using it more than my logitech wireless that cost 5 times more. you can't go wrong with this setup.. just get one :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sunforce 50042 50 Watt Pro Series Amorphous Solar Panel
Pros: Um.. It is Tempered glass.... look in the details... wow, most everyone here has the wrong idea about solar energy. You are not trying to get a device that will pay for itself over time. Do you buy gadgets at new egg that pay for themselves? If you do I want to see your very short list, haha. It is all about saving the environment and caring about the planet we live on for our future generations. Less fossil fuel, less greenhouse gasses, less Human fingerprint on the planet altogether. If you are out to get something for free then you miss the point of going solar. And think about it, it is free energy people. you are not buying this energy from a greedy corporation, the sun is giving it to you freely just like it has been giving the whole planet life since life began here. You are buying a converter to change that form of energy into something more useful to you (IE, electricity). Any kind of energy conversion is expensive, no matter how you look at it.
Cons: It is true that some solar panels are not very efficient. But that is because of our limitation of the technology and knowledge of solar energy itself. In my opinion we are behind because of the lack of funding for this research and development because no one on the earth seems to realize or care how important it is that we stop draining all the non-renewable resources we have until there is nothing left. Everyone can do their part, if you even buy a single solar powered cell phone charger (here on new egg for $20) then you are helping the planet. every bit helps. And you can be sure that when I can save up around $300 one of these is going on my roof.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
Pros: Very small and lightweight, this thing literally sticks out a cm from your usb port. no worry about things not fitting in the next port over.
Worked right out of the box (on winxp, see notes for win7)
Very high data rate, throughput, and range. (it is true N)
This little gadget has a great signal strength from my SMC wireless N router, even on the other side of the house and upstairs from it. (I have a solid 150 Mbps with 5 bars)
Priced very well (shellshocker)
Cons: It is so small in fact that if you drop it outside somewhere (like in the grass) good luck ever finding it again. Of course most of us would not take it out when we are outside...
would not work without some tweeks on windows7 X64, or on my netbook (see notes)
Other Thoughts: This worked fine on my laptop with windowsxp, I did not even need the driver disk, windows update found and installed it automatically. The software to manage the network is a little more technical and gives more information and options for your network than the built in zero config on windows. However you do not need this for it to work.
On my netbook of course I don't have a cd drive so it was a bit of a hassle. I used cdburnerxp to extract an ISO image from the driver disk using my desktop. The copied the image to a flash drive. Then used daemon tools lite on the netbook to mount the image and proceed as normal.
For windows 7 X64 on my desktop The cd driver would not work and windows update could not find it either. Luckily I had the other two pc's, and foundit uses a realtek wireless N chipset and downloaded the X64 driver from realtek and it works fine now.
So I got this working between 3 pc's and it does it's job very well on all of them. I am very pleased with it
