Pros: Cannot beat the price! Powerline adapters are nowhere near this price right now for just the adapters let alone a built in wireless router. The router firmware is actually somewhat decent. Shows average speeds, CPU and RAM usage, and easy to navigate menus.
Cons: Some manual configuration necessary. You must log into the router and plug in the MAC address and another code from the other powerline adapter. Hardly difficult, but not exactly plug and play.
Other Thoughts: For those wondering, the powerline adapter works JUST as if it was an ethernet. For example, I have my primary router (not ZyXel) in the back of my house. I have the powerline brick connected to the primary router and have the ZyXel router near the front of my house acting as an access point (no DHCP). So the powerline does not work necessarily JUST for accessing the router. It works connect the router to existing equipment as well. Hope that helps!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Shadowrun Xbox 360 Game
Pros: Great game with longevity! There basically is no end to the entertainment this game will bring you. People who like Counter Strike will love Shadowrun. On top of just using guns, you have magic that enhances the game even further. You can pick different characters with different abilities. Fragging and winning rounds earns you more cash to buy more enhancements.
Cons: It's outdated. Don't expect a 2 year old game to have graphics of a newly released one. This game has decent graphics, but that's not what the game is trying to accomplish. For those achievement hunters, this is a tough one to get a high score on, demanding over 500+ games (not rounds).
Other Thoughts: For $10, if you have not played it and enjoy online FPS, you need to pick this up. It is worth the money!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CyberPower CPH420MP Hub
Pros: Very nice for use with My laptop on the road or my Xbox 360 while not needing an extra power connection for the warts of other powered USB hubs.
Cons: I thought there might be a chance you could use it to chrage up phones or MP3 players by just powering it on (while not connected to anything else). This is not the case. It must be plugged into a source USB port in order to be turned on to use the batteries.
Other Thoughts: I was not expecting it to power on devices by itself, but that would be an awesome feature. Maybe a future release? *hint hint*. To the other reviewer that had such a hard time with the battery case... I don't know what to tell you. Mine was slightly difficult to connect, but I got it in less than 30 seconds. No hack n' slash job needed...READ FULL REVIEW
