This review is from: D-Link DHP-W311AV PowerLine AV 500 Wireless N Mini Adapter Starter Kit
Pros: Small, and white (blends in with the woodwork on my 100 year old house). We interface is nice, clean, and fast.
Cons: Instructions are a bit confusing even for myself (an IT Support Specialist for 5 years). The printed instructions don't tell you how to secure the PLC, and the address listed for the web interface is wrong (and wrong in two different ways in two two spots its printed). I had to look at my router's web interface to figure out what IP it was pulling to get at the web interface. This web interface then took me though an entirely different set of setup instructions that conflicted with the first. I ignored them (because they didn't seem to work), and just poked around the web interface until everything was set up the way I wanted.
Other Thoughts: Instructions neglect one important thing: you should go into the PLC settings and set the network type to private.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: The remote is horrible. Buttons are small and impossible to read. Separate off and on buttons. Really, who does that?! It also takes watch batteries. Fortunately, it works with a Logitech Harmony remote.
Unit reboots after watch TV for two seconds (even though the network tuner is getting full bars). Mini USB connector on the back of the unit fell off just from unplugging the power. I suspect shoddy soldering.
Other Thoughts: For $180, I expect a lot better build quality, not some cheap, made-in-you-know-where, plastic toy.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTMCK/8GB
Pros: Cheap and small.
Cons: It died after two months. Its stuck in write-protect mode. Tried using diskpart to clear this attribute, but it won't clear. There is no physical switch on the disk either.READ FULL REVIEW
