This review is from: D-Link DHP-W311AV PowerLine AV200 adapter+ Wireless N300 Mini Adapter Starter Kit
Pros: Plug and play, works with D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit. These all work in the same house! If you have an old house and don't feel like running Cat5/6 cables, these are the way to go! I have tested these off extension cords, surge bars, and at significant distances from the main one plugged into my home router.
Cons: wireless. Minimal options to change on this compared to just plugging in a home wireless router to one of the adapters that dont provide wireless. Even though it is truly wireless N, signal strength is weak.
Other Thoughts: If I could do it again, I would have just bought two of the D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit and bought a linksys or whatever wireless AP/router.
These devices work over any circuit, sub panel, main panel.... They just work! and speed is great even if you have something else plugged into the outlet.
Back to my issues with the wireless adapter. It claims it is broadcasting in Wireless N, and there are some features that allow you to tweak this device. Maybe it's just D-Link, but there is so many more options I would prefer than this offers. I have this in a sun room which is all windows and wood construction, with brick separating it from my living room. I get a good connection in my living room (30' away) but when I go outside of my sun room (aprox 30' from the device) i have no signal whatsoever. I have adjusted height, and placement of the device with no luck of bettering the signal quality. When I swapped it out with a more robust router, it appeared to cover more ground. Not a huge problem but something to be aware of!
This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit
Pros: Simple plug and play. I have one plugged in to the outlet next to my Verizon Fios router, and the other in a room off a sub panel in my house. The two detected each other in no time, and there was 0 latency. I pay for 50 megs down, and that is what I got!
Cons: none that I can see
Other Thoughts: I purchased this for a long run out to an out door barn(about 300 feet from my house) to configure a security camera, and WiFi for my use. Once the weather breaks I will give it a shot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech 963326-0403 Cordless RumblePad 2 USB
Pros: Great response, Great battery life, overall very similar to a PS3 controller.
Cons: where the Joy sticks are, its a square area, meaning when you push forward on the stick, it feels like it is being held up instead of just giving the moveability of a PS3 or XBox controller.
Other Thoughts: Great wireless controller, Logitech is always great for add ons to a computer, again, just a little weird design on the joysticks. easy to get used to though. when you do go back to a PS3 controller, they are much lighter and the joystick thing feels weird again!READ FULL REVIEW
