TP-LINK Archer C7 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router, 2.4GHz 450Mbps+5Ghz 1350Mbps, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Much better in speed and range than my last 2 routers

Cons: Short time of experience

Other Thoughts: I've only had this for a day, so my review may change as time goes on. Also, altho I'm pretty tech savvy, networks are something I just haven't bothered with much - usually used wired connections, but now with a wifi cell phone, kindle HDX fire, and a gaming extender, that will change. I'm fairly tech savvy, but not to the degree that the tech geeks here are.
That said, in the day I've used it it has (so far) lived up to basic expectations: Both the 2.4 and 5ghz bands are higher than previously routers (ancient but reliable Netgear 300 range max, Trendnet N600 dual-band (avoid that one if you can), which is what was advertised and what it has delivered. It doesn't quite live up to the speed claims of 1.3 mbps (IIRC) and (is it 450?mbpz), even when I'm sitting next to the router, but speeds are liveable. (For instance, my cell phone on the 5ghz band , within 5 feet of the router right now, is showing 433 mbps - not what was advertised, but more than good enough bandwidth for streaming.)

Set-up could've been simpler - when I wanted to change some of the parameters, it didn't work out so well, but I'm not a big fan of reading owner's manuals, so I probably need to go back and do that, to work out the kinks. Wired speeds are just what you want - 1.0gbps going through a gigabit switch - probably the same as any other gigabit router, but it's nice to see this works, no problem.
May come back with more comments as I get more experience - of course, that's often when the problems appear.

Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonably compact, branded (Targus) - made in China but at least you have a company name rather than the no name junk that works for 5 minutes before breaking and you have no recourse - seems to charge my phone quite quickly - 4800mh is probably needed, as phone batteries themselves may average, like mine, around 2200mh to charge

Cons: Puts out actually 1mh as far as I can tell, which is just fine as that's appropriate for my phone, but makes me wonder whether it would fully and quickly charge something like an ipad or other tablet. Haven't had enough experience to tell how well it will last, comes with only usb2 to mico usb cable - you'll have to get other adapters you might need on your own

Other Thoughts: So far, I'm quite satisfied

NUANCE PaperPort 14
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Nuance is useless 02/01/2014

This review is from: NUANCE PaperPort 14

Pros: It scans documents

Cons: As noted by previous reviewer, indexing is broken - even a great deal more than he documents - it simply doesn't work (never completes without errors) whether the files are problematic to it or not. Worse yet, Nuance has absolutely no customer support worth anything. Their policy is to ignore you, so you'll upgrade to the next version. It's deplorable

Other Thoughts: Maybe take a look at alternative - FileCenter Pro is ok, I've heard. You can find documents in Paperport with windows 'search' function - since Paperport's indexing is broken - but it's a pain - and why support a company that cares nothing about its customers?
