This review is from: On Networks N300 Wireless Router N300R
Pros: Price is good.
Decent range. About 20 feet less than my Centurylink 6070, which was over $100.
The wifi speed is pretty good. We have 2 3DS's, and a phone on it, and the wifi is fast enough for all three.
Cons: This router WILL NOT pair with my computer. I have tried everything I know and I cannot use it with my computer. This may just be a strange compatibility issue with my wifi adapter and this router.
Every 2-3 days this router stops working, and I have to unplug and reset it. This is very annoying, and should NOT happen.
The internet speed on my phone is not as good as with my other router.
The router looks/feels very cheap.
Other Thoughts: This is a decent router for the cost, but I would recommend spending more money and getting a good router.
The two children with the DS's told me that they didn't like the router, and they wanted that mentioned in the review (gotta love kids).
Pros: Very quiet.
Nearly as fast as my brand new WD Blue drive.
Pretty good price to storage ratio.
Amazingly low power usage, about half that of my Blue drive.
I transferred a folder full of movie and game ISO's from my 1TB WD Blue drive to this one, and the transfer speed stayed above 130 MB/s the entire time.
I used a program called "Barts Stuff Test", which fills the entire disk, then reads the file and calculates read/write speeds. The entire process took about 8 hours, and during that time the hard drive never went more than 2 F above ambient temperature.
Read and Write speeds were pretty constant across the entire disk;
Max read speed was 150 MB/s, average was 120.
Max write speed was 154 MB/s, average was 125.
I have been transferring some of my bigger files which were cluttering up my main hard drive onto this one, and I am very pleased with the write speeds on this drive.
Cons: No installation instructions (not a big deal).
Not quite fast enough for gaming.
Other Thoughts: This drive would be perfect for backup or secondary storage. I plan on putting it in an external enclosure and using it for just that. It would work very well for low power applications, and is also very quiet.
I would also definitely recommend it if you just need a large, cheap hard drive.
This review is from: Patriot LX Series 8GB Class 10 Micro SDHC Flash Card Model PSF8GMCSDHC10
Pros: The memory card technically does work, but not as advertised.
Decent price (not great though)
Cons: I e-mailed the manufacturer ( just as they directed me to do), and its been months with no reply. Read and write speeds are frustratingly slow for a class 10 device
Other Thoughts: Do not expect any customer support on Patriot items.
I bought it since the patriot logo looks nice, expecting that all memory cards were created equal- turns out that may not be so
