TRENDnet TPL-406E2K Powerline 500 AV Nano Adapter Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great value and performance 07/15/2014

This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-406E2K Powerline 500 AV Nano Adapter Kit

Pros: Plug it in, it works. No fuss, no software installation needed for routine setups.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I tested this in my house, and compared short and long wiring paths. On a 20 mbps DSL line, I measured 17 mbps directly at the DSL modem, 16.8 mbps via the Powerline using a fairly short wiring path (about 30 feet, on two circuits, so there were two breakers in the path), and 15.4 mbps via the Powerline over the longest path (about 100 feet of wiring, including two power panels and three breakers.)
No complaints at all. This is my first experience with this kind of ethernet-over-power line tech, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it works.

Dell S2340M Black 23
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's an ok display, but ...

Cons: This monitor can't be used with a monitor arm, or any other kind of mount, because it does not have any VESA mounting holes. Yes, you can detach the stand, but that's only for shipping.

This is a common shortcoming of many Dell monitors, so be careful when ordering.

Why Dell decided to ignore a simple industry standard is a mystery.

Rosewill RGD-CT505 Battery Charger for AAA/AA Ni-MH Batteries(battery not included)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Be careful with non-NiMH 05/13/2010

This review is from: Rosewill RGD-CT505 Battery Charger for AAA/AA Ni-MH Batteries(battery not included)

Pros: It works well as a slow charger for NiMH batteries. It seems to produce better results than the quick 15-minute chargers that typically come bundled with a package of 4 rechargeables, although I haven't run any scientific tests to confirm that -- it's just my impression.

Slow recharging creates much less heat, so that will extend the life of the cells.

Cons: I recharged some Duracell AAAs (ordinary alkaline, not rechargeable), and they all leaked a corrosive substance over the next few days. Fortunately, the AAAs were only sitting on a desktop, and not in an electronic device, because whatever leaked out of them ruined the wood.

Given this experience, I will never risk damaging an electronic device with ordinary batteries recharged by this gadget.

Other Thoughts: I'm sticking to batteries that were intended to be recharged. Trying to stretch a little more life out of alkaline batteries just isn't worth the risk.
