Mediasonic HomeWorX HW110AN ATSC Series Digital Flat Antenna

2 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for 04/01/2016

This review is from: Mediasonic HomeWorX HW110AN ATSC Series Digital Flat Antenna

Pros: Comes with a suction-cup stand.

Cons: Extremely poor reception. I live in a well-developed urban area and this antenna was barely able to pick up anything at all, despite multiple towers being located well within the suggested 25 mile radius.

Pros: It's RAM. It works. It's cheap. Using a MSI X99S SLI motherboard and a 5820k, I was able to get 3200 as advertised at 1.35v with no fuss. Just loaded up the XMP profile and it did it's thing. Passed a day or so of memtest and has been great so far.

Cons: I only bought 8GB. Should have bought 16!

Other Thoughts: No need to pay nearly twice the price for RAM from bigger names with fancier (useless) heatsinks.

Rocket Socket Portable Car Battery Jump Starter 400 Peak Amp with (Power Bank Phone Charger 10000mAh) - Emergency Laptop Power Source Flashlight for Camping and Traveling
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fairly light.

Flashlight feature is nice in an emergency, and it's reasonably bright.

Comes with a decent plastic case to keep the unit as well as all the various cords and adapters organized with. Comes with some of the most common laptop charger bits and a USB cable that'll charge both lightning and normal microUSB phones/tablets.

Cons: Fried the first time I tried to use it to jump a car.

A bit larger than I expected. The flashlight itself is 8.5"x3" or so, which while still small enough to throw in a glove compartment, will take up most of said glove compartment.

Other Thoughts: My wife killed her Golf TDI by leaving the headlights on over night, so I figured it would be a good opportunity to see if this jump start pack would work. It didn't. The instructions printed on the back of the case, on the jumper cables themselves, as well as various promo photos, show the charger hooked directly up to both the positive (+) and negative (-) terminal on the dead battery, which seems odd to me; normally you connect the positive to the dead battery, but connect the negative to a ground. But I followed the directions, figuring they knew best. As soon as I connected it, the car got power (good!) but the converter box on the positive jumper cable immediately began smoking, and a small part of the box began to melt.

Thankfully I was able to yank it off before it did any damage, but the converter box is fried, and the flashlight unit won't turn on at all now; the whole thing is shot.

Waste of money, would not recommend.
