This review is from: PLANTRONICS Voyager Pro HD Black Bluetooth Headset
Cons: Complete piece of junk. Voice prompts are in some foreign language. Cheap pliable plastic, muffled sounds. Received a fake/clone product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It does provide connectivity to the internet at a rate slightly fast than my Linksys EA8500 router in the basement. My modem and router are in the basement to keep them out of sight. The wireless router provides a constant speed tested on the speakeasy speed test site of 33.5 Mbps download and 23.5 Mbps upload. Using the TP-Link TL-PA4010 i am able to get download speeds of 55.0 Mbps but the same upload speeds. I'm sure these speeds are being limited because I cant access a direct electrical outlet which the directions say to use. However, I can only connect this device to my modem/router to an electrical current via a small electrical extension wire due to the location of this device in my basement.
The device can bring internet connectivity to one of my older smart TVs in which did not have wireless access and needed a Patch cable to be connected to it. Now I plug this device in an outlet behind that TV and run a 3 ft patch cable to it.
Cons: I see no cons other than using this device with only electrical outlets and no extension cords or power strips.
Other Thoughts: The device has a small profile and will not block access to the other socket on your wall.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR 64GB Flash Voyager GS USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGS3B-64GB
Pros: The CORSAIR 64GB Flash Voyager GS USB 3.0 Flash DriveModel CMFVYGS3B-64GB, arrives in a plastic sealed card hanger. The flash drive is made out of metal and is quite large. The length is 2.5”, the width is 1.125’, and its height is 0.25” thick. The 64GB capacity usb 3.0 flash drive is rated at speeds of: Read – up to 295MB/s and for Write – up to 170MB/s.
To test the advertised speed I used an Asus Maximus VI Gene Motherboard with Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate OS loaded on two Samsung 850 Pro SSDs in RAID0 configuration.
I installed 4 benchmarking software applications on this machine to measure how these benchmarking runs would compare to the speeds this flash drive is supposed to get.
I used ATTO Disk Benchmark, CrystalDiskMark version 4.0.3 x64, HD Tune Pro version 5.60, and AS SSD version 1.8.5611.397911.
The average Read/Write speeds I achieved after 10 runs from each software was:
1) HD Tune Pro: 269 MB/s for Read. 150 MB/s for Write
2) ATTO Disk Benchmark: 285 MB/s for Read. 86 MB/s for Write
3) Crystal Disk Mark: 310 MB/s for Read. 149 MB/s for Write
4) AS SSD: 285 MB/s for Read. 152 MB/s for Write
Prior to recording these speeds I was getting 25 MB/s Read speeds and 23 MB/s Write speeds. Then I determined I had not installed the USB 3.0 drivers on this system.
Cons: On the large size so you may have an issue with plugging something in next to an adjacent port. My work around is to use little extender cables.
Other Thoughts: Just make sure you have installed the USB 3.0 driver in order to achieve the advertised speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
