Insten 675688 RJ45 1x2 Ethernet Connector Splitter, Light Beige
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs It is not rocket science 06/03/2014

This review is from: Insten 675688 RJ45 1x2 Ethernet Connector Splitter, Light Beige

Pros: Simple, does what it says

Cons: limits speeds. Cat 5 cable has four pairs of wire and each pair is twisted. Cat 6 even twists them at different rates so the wires are not in parallel and this minimizes crosstalk between the wires. The unsused wires are essentially shielding, they add stability as high frequency signals generate radio waves that interfere with each other and these dead lines soak up some of that. Using the four spare wires for more data interferes with this balance and reduces the usable speed of the cable.

Other Thoughts: High tech knowledge would indicate that one would know that Ethernet is a point-to-point protocol. This splitter is not an Ethernet switch. There are 8 wires in a standard Cat5 cable, only 4 are used most of the time. This uses the other four. On the other end those four are not connected to anything either, so you need two of these. To call four wires half-duplex proves that you lack tech knowledge.

This is a good example why we cannot blindly trust in the stupidity of others. A bad rating may be mad reviewers. These details are why professionals can solve problems and the ignorant cannot.

Transcend 4-port USB 3.0 Hub w/ Power Adapter model # TSHUB3K, Supports IOS Fast Charging

4 out of 5 eggs Requires a USB 3.0 micro-B cable 03/25/2014

This review is from: Transcend 4-port USB 3.0 Hub w/ Power Adapter model # TSHUB3K, Supports IOS Fast Charging

Pros: Small, attractive design, 2A charging port.

Cons: lightweight(pro?), so it does not stay still, needs to be secured with tape or velcro. Ordered with a 10' supply cable, unfortunately the cable had a standard size USB 3.0 "B" connector and I had to reorder to get a USB 3.0 micro-B. I was just careless when I ordered.

Other Thoughts: There are no proprietary cables required here. USB 3.0 requires 10 pins, so micro connectors need more space and are extended. The full size "A" connector may look the same, but the full size "B" connector is extended as well. Look them up before you complain and mislead others.

G.SKILL 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5S-4GBPQ

5 out of 5 eggs Extended the life of my WHS EX490 12/21/2013

This review is from: G.SKILL 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5S-4GBPQ

Pros: Works as it should

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I used to upgrade my HP Mediasmart EX490 for Server 2012 Essentials that used all of the 2GB I had. I had already upgraded the CPU to an 8400, but (Oscar Myer Golly competition and word police!) is the only source for quad cores now. The online flea market, rhymes with seaway. NE does not sell C2D anymore, so go someplace else for those. It is silly that NE does not want me to suggest a vendor who has them, these reviews are for us to help each other find parts and solutions. A new CPU makes for a more complete solution, even if that part of it is purchased elsewhere. I got the RAM here obviously. Now my complaint is over half of my post, good advertising for shopping around. I guess I am not suppose to care. Caring means using words that are banned. :rolleyes:

Glad that a previous post mentioned their success with HP Mediasmart, made this purchase much easier.
