Pros: Setup was easy. Updated the firmware and used the auto setup which worked quickly. The 5GHz side works well with the smart phones. Notice that WiFi streaming of TV seems smoother and no mid-program buffering so far. The refurbished product was substantially less costly and it works.
Other Thoughts: I bought this router to replace another brand single band router that had worked fine for about 4 years. Upgrading to smart phones meant more use of the wireless side of the router, so the dual band is handy. I purchased the extended warranty which now lasts longer than the new one. I have the router plugged into a UPS for continuity and protection and it has been working for a month. I'm satisfied.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: G.SKILL 32GB microSDHC Flash Card w/ SD Adapter Model FF-TSDG32GA-C10
Pros: I've had only good experiences with G.Skill memory products. I mainly use SD cards for photography. Benefits of this product are: SD adapter, Class 10, Lots of space, works with fussy Nikon DSLR.
Other Thoughts: Instructions with my Nikon 5100 DSLR camera warn that it is not compatible with some SDHC cards, very true. I have two of the G.Skill 32 GB cards with SD adapter and they work well with the camera although not listed by Nikon. I have other, well-known, manufacturer's SD cards I've purchased from Newegg that the Nikon rejects. No problem as they do work with computers and/or my Canon snapshot camera.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as advertised. The RF-603 is an inexpensive way to set up home studio lighting. It is convenient for remote shutter release, no need to drill down into menu to set shutter release mode, just plug the unit into the GPS socket and shoot.
Cons: Some reviewers don't like the switch location on top but I've not found that a problem. Do wish it would pass through camera hot-shoe contacts so I could use an automatic flash mounted to the unit and then the unit onto the camera hot shoe. It would be nice if it had a threaded socket to mount it to a tripod directly. Not worth deducting an egg though.
Other Thoughts: Equipment set-up so far: Nikon D5100, Sunpak and Yashica manual flash units. I received two RF-603 N3 sets as a birthday gift. My son saw a pro photographer using them and thought I'd like them, I do. I dug out my old manual flash units and tried a multi-flash setup. I put the camera in manual mode, set the ISO, the shutter speed and f-stop. Had to re-acquaint myself with the exposure dials on the flash units, but old habits returned and I started getting good results. Then I set the SB400 on the camera flash shoe and plugged the RF-603 into the GPS plug, let it dangle, and fired off shots at will. The contacts don't feed through so you can't put the RF603 between an automatic flash like the SB400 and the camera hot shoe. Haven't tried other combinations yet, but I like the RF603 well enough to buy another set. Now I need umbrellas and stands to soften the light and I'm ready for a home studio shoot.READ FULL REVIEW
