This review is from: 6.5mm Domed Titanium Ring (Men's and Women's)
Pros: - Sizes match sizer from local jewelry store
- Beautiful ring
- Incredibly comfortable, especially for someone that has never worn jewelry before
- Similar rings in local retail stores were marked at around $500
- Lightweight, but substantial
- Had it 3 days after I ordered it vs 4 weeks I was quoted at local store
- Comfort fit band
- No sharp edges
Cons: - The photos don't show the true details of the ring, but they were a pleasant surprise (The edges are lower than the center)
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a "practice" ring upon the request of my future wife. She wanted me to get used to wearing a ring before the big day without wearing the ring she purchased for me at a local store to avoid bad luck. The ring is perfect for this purpose, but I wouldn't hesitate recommending this as a primary ring to anyone!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: Fast. Wireless N 300mb/s, 4 gigabit ethernet ports, 3 external replaceable antennas.
Cons: Astetically, it's pretty ugly... gloss white plastic, black front panel, bright blue LEDs. But those are opinions and minor details easily over looked.
The big problem is the wireless connection is very unstable. I sometimes get a few days, sometimes only a few minutes between getting kicked off the wireless N connection. The wireless G connection is much more stable, but I cannot get it to connect at more than wireless B speeds.
Large file transfers over the gigabit ethernet causes the router to get very warm which makes the wireless almost useless, even though the ethernet connections never drop.
Other Thoughts: This is the 3rd D-Link product I had this issue with. I kept them turning them into switches since the ethernet was rock solid. I assumed the other ones had issues from being cheap and the laptop I was using was older, so I attributed some of the problems to it. But 2 new laptops, an i-touch, wifi printer, PS3 and XBox 360 all have the same issues with all of the d-link products I have. I figured D-Link products were of good quality and I was doing something wrong. When I was in a retail store looking at routers the clerk recommended I skip D-Link stuff, because even though they were very popular and some of the cheapest they had to offer, they were the most often returned/replaced due to the same problems I was having.
A switch to a $30 ASUS router and I've not had a single hickup in the last 3 weeks I've had it.
So much for "You get what you pay for".
This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter
Pros: This adaptor allows my Dell 14z laptop to use an external monitor since the computer has no vga or dvi output. It works well on every monitor I've tried it on, up to 1900x1200 resolution.
Cons: Doesn't work well on all projectors, just some. The older projectors and the ones that University of Cincinnati have the are controlled through an control panel don't allow higher than 640x480 resolution. Newer ones allow native resolution just fine.
Other Thoughts: I would recomend this to anyone. Dell was stupid and thought HDMI and Displayport were good ways to attach monitors to this laptop. If they would have gone with mini-displayport, maybe, since Apple uses it I could have found an adaptor. It took me almost 6 months between getting the computer and finding this adaptor (just so happens eyefinity came out a couple weeks before this adaptor). Digital out is cool, but only if your accessories have digital inputs!
Nice product though.
