Pros: - Good gain, can't do much better than these if you need to support both 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands unless you go for directional antennas.
- Looks pretty, not exorbitantly-sized.
Cons: - The build quality of this antenna is atrocious for this price point. The threads are plastic, the hinge is small and flimsy, and there are various fit-and-finish problems. This is polar-opposite to Rosewill's other antennas, especially in regards to the plastic threads. ALL of their other antennas have metal threads with beefier hinges.
- 2.4GHz gain isn't superb, but this is just common to dual-band antennas in general, not this one specifically.
Other Thoughts: I paired this with an RNX-AD5 to have something with a little more gain to go with it at the expense of a more directional beam.
I have two external antenna connections on my laptop (added by me) which are used with a Killer-N 1202 WLAN card, and it works absolutely phenomenal. Looks pretty 'killer' too.
Because I disconnect the antennas to transport the laptop in my bag, the build quality of the antenna is very important to me. If you're going to be sticking this on something stationary and just setting it and forgetting it then build quality isn't really a big deal for you, plastic threads and a flimsy hinge will get the job done for you.
If you are looking to upgrade a router's antennas, these are probably your best non-directional choice if you need 5GHz support. Be warned that, unless you're replacing little dinky rubber-ducky antennas, you may not notice enough of a difference to justify the cost of these antennas.
If your router or WiFi chip is only 2.4GHz, you should look at antennas that offer high gain on 2.4GHz only, like Rosewill's RNX-A9-EX or RNX-A5LX-EX.
Pros: - Enormous 13000mAh capacity.
- Handy bright LED light.
- Nice, useful charge indicator, also flashes to tell you when a device connects/disconnects, among other things.
- More portable than I thought it would be.
- 2A input support via your everyday microUSB.
- 2A and 1A USB outputs.
- Got mine for a ShellShocker deal of about $30.
Cons: - As others have stated, the included microUSB cord is a joke. You can pull off the end cover plastic things with just the normal force of inserting and removing the cable, but chances are if you're buying this you already have at least one or two with you all the time anyway.
Other Thoughts: The spec sheet lists it as only supporting 1A input, but the unit itself says 2A.
I've discharged and recharged mine completely, 2 times now, and it charged up without any issues. Not sure what the issue other reviewers are having is, could just be the cable?
This review is from: Coboc 10 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
Pros: - 10 feet long.
- Gold-plated connectors, always a nice touch!
- Works great.
- Doesn't seem like it'll break (e.x. connector detachment) easily.
Cons: - Not as thick as I hoped it would be, but certainly better than those little tiny "UltraSlim" etc. cables. If you actually need a slimish cable though, I'd say this is the way to go, as it's maneuverable and with those super slim cables you still have to fit the connector part through whatever you're trying to fit it through anyway.
Other Thoughts: It's a cable... there's not a whole lot that can go wrong as long as you don't yank it out of whatever it's plugged into. Plus at this price you could buy 10 of these for what just 1 would cost at a big box retailer, and without the annoying clamshell packaging too.READ FULL REVIEW
