Pros: This router is amazing. It has more than enough to keep the average home running, especially if loaded with DD-WRT (highly recommended). I have had one running for 4 years and bought another just to make sure I wouldn't be dead in the water if a pop spills on it. The signal strength with stock antenas is great (especially if adjusted to 70 in the DDWRT settings). I get full bars all over the house, and that is through tile floors and 3 walls across 70 feet.
Cons: Aging now, it isn't gigabit which is the only reason I could see for even looking at another router besides this.
Other Thoughts: A quick search on the web can reveal that you can add SD cards, screens, and more to this. Its crazy how capable this router is, and will continue to be for years to come! Get it if you don't do file sharing between computers on your LAN.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Nippon Labs Delux 50 ft. HDMI TO HDMI Cable A/V Gold Plated HDMI 50ft Cable 50 feet
Pros: First off, it just works. Cables shouldn't be hard to screw up, but many companies manage to do it. This product is not one of those that will fail on you unless you are really cranking it around corners and bending it hard. The cable is really thick, meaning lots of copper, shielding, and protection between wires.
Other Thoughts: I had this cable running from my PC to my TV, and it worked flawlessly (after accounting for overscan). The shielding works very well as it ran past a ton of other wires/cables including; wireless WRT54GL router w/ 6 cat5 UTP connections and higher 2.4 output, numerous surge protectors and power cables, computer speakers, and home theater speaker wires running parallel with it in my ducts.
All that noise and it still delivers flawless picture from my aging GTX260 w/ SPIF audio and DVI > HDMI adapter.
I'd recommend this product without hesitation to anyone looking for 20 feet or more - just coil up extra for a rainy day.
This review is from: GARMIN Portable Friction Mount
Pros: This is the best idea out there for taking the GPS in the car, I have two of them and they are used heavily. This keeps the GPS planted on the dash in pretty much any driving situation (no probably not if you roll the car or get rear-ended, but gravity does wonders). It weighs maybe 3 pounds but its plenty to keep it put, but light enough so you can pass it over to the passenger. It also has bendable metal in the base, so if you want it in the same place everytime you can contour the bottom to what the dash does.
Cons: Probably doesn't repel hot cocoa or coffee well for itself or the GPS.
Other Thoughts: I do not encourage people to skimp the 15 bucks and get the knock off item here. It uses the suction cup to fasten to the base, and it is only a matter of time until it stops sealing. I've used this base for years and messed with it while I'm riding and it won't break if you make sure you aren't hitting or stepping on it.READ FULL REVIEW
