TP-LINK Archer T2U AC600 Mini Wireless Dual Band Adapter, 2.4GHz 150Mbps/5Ghz 433Mbps,One-Button Setup,Windows XP/7/8
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: First impressions (before powering up and setting up):
- This adapter supports all of your major IEEE 802.11 standards; IEEE 802.11 a/n/ac 5GHz and IEEE 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz, so it’s definitely compatible with almost all routers (as long as the router isn’t ancient).
- It’s small enough to be handy, but on the same token, small enough to lose easily as well.
- Supports 802.11AC… so even if you don’t have an AC router YET… this adapter is future-proof.

Use:
- It goes. It just goes. Was web surfing and what-not right after installation. Definitely one of the easier wifi adapter installs.
- Was able to stream videos in HD from both YouTube and Netflix without an issue.

Cons: Powering up and setting up:
-Figured we’d give this a shot on my Window 7 x64 laptop…
First, let’s see if it’s plug-and-play: And that’s a big no. Windows can tell it’s a wifi adapter, but doesn’t have the proper drivers.
- Would have liked to have seen some sort of USB extender included… but not a deal breaker.

Other:
- Weird-note: the quick installation guide states “Insert the adapter into a USB port on your computer, either directly or via the USB cable provided.” SaY wHaT!!! But there wasn’t ANY USB cable(s) provided… boo. Again, not a huge deal, but it would have been nice if a USB cable had been provided, since even the quick install guide references one!
- 2nd weird-note: In a lot of the ad material for this wireless adapter mentions “One-Button Setup with WPS button”. Even the notes for this product on Newegg say “Easy encryption w/ WPS button”. On first glance, this adapter does not have a WPS button. Upon further inspection, this was found on the TP-LINK website: “One Button Connection: Instantly setup WiFi connections simply by pressing the "WPS" button with Utility”. So there technically IS a WPS button, it’s a soft-button located in the included wireless utility on the resource CD. I think the way this feature is represented should be altered / updated to say the the WPS feature is accessible through the included utility on the resource CD.

Other Thoughts: Packaging and Un-boxing:
- Wireless adapter comes in standard cardboard packaging. Included items: AC600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter Archer T2U, Quick Installation Guide, and a Resource CD.

First impressions (before powering up and setting up):
- This adapter supports all of your major IEEE 802.11 standards; IEEE 802.11 a/n/ac 5GHz and IEEE 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz, so it’s definitely compatible with almost all routers (as long as the router isn’t ancient).
- Specifications state that it’s compatible with Windows 8/7/XP 32/64 bit… no word on Mac, but that’s a whole other ball of wax….

Powering up and setting up:
-Figured we’d give this a shot on my Window 7 x64 laptop…
First, let’s see if it’s plug-and-play: And that’s a big no. Windows can tell it’s a wifi adapter, but doesn’t have the proper drivers.
Next, let’s go to Device Manager and point the Device Installer to look at the included Resource CD. A few moments later, and Robert is your mother’s brother… wifi adapter installed. That was easy and painless.
Tell Windows to join my wifi network and we’re off and running!
-Note: I tend to shy away from using company’s wifi utilities and prefer that Windows handle all network in’s, out’s and what-have-ya’s. Sometimes using the utilities included with certain adapters can make network management a mess. Good to know this adapter functions without having to use it’s own specific utility to manage connections.

Wrap-Up:
-The only “nit-picks”: no USB extender cable included, WPS “button” is actually a soft button, and adapter isn’t plug-and-play on Windows 7 x64. -For around $30, you get a compact AC dual band wireless adapter that works without any hiccups. Great for a backup wireless adapter (just-in-case) or to supplement an older adapter.

ASUS VE247H Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Beautiful display (once you get it dialed in correctly; more on this later)
- VGA, DVI-D, and HDMI inputs!

Cons: - The built-in color presets are just awful. I wouldn't suggest using any of these as they come configured. I was frustraighted with the look of this monitor the way it comes out of the box and was on the fence about returning this monitor, in all color presets it was just WAY to bright / blown out. LOTS of tweeking later, and I've got it looking the way I prefer.

Other Thoughts: Here's my settings that I use: (connected via HDMI to MSI N660TI PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 Ti)

SPLENDID -
Scenery Mode

COLOR -
Brightness - 30
Contrast - 70
Saturation - 35
Color Temp. - Warm
Skin Tone - Natural
Smart View - OFF

IMAGE -
Sharpness - 0
Trace Free - 40
Aspect Control - Full
ASCR - OFF


SYSTEM SETUP -
ECO Mode - OFF

Again, these are the setting that work for me... this might give you a good starting point to tailor this monitor to your viewing taste. DON'T SEND IT BACK! It's a great monitor once you have it dialed in correctly!

P.S.
I don't use the built-in speakers... I feel that those are just about as useless as the built-in speakers on an LCD / Plasma TV. They're never going to be like a good 2.1 or 5.1 system... I'd say skip 'em.

Oster Fast Feed Hair Clipper #76023-510

4 out of 5 eggs GREAT hair clippers! 09/17/2014

This review is from: Oster Fast Feed Hair Clipper #76023-510

Pros: - Cuts hair like nobody's business
- Long power cord

Cons: - Doesn't come with enough guide combs

Other Thoughts: Use these clippers every 2 weeks... I've been starting to lose my hair pretty rapidly, so if I let it grow in, it looks like a bad Chia Pet experiment.

I wish it came with more guides combs, but what you get is more than sufficient for the standard buzz cut.

Check out the clippers your barber / stylist uses next time you go to the barber shop / salon... they're probably using these exact same clippers!
