StarTech MU1MMFS 0.3
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Quality Product - Watch for Special Deals 03/02/2014

This review is from: StarTech MU1MMFS 0.3" Slim 3.5mm Stereo Extension Audio Cable M-F

Pros: Nice quality flexible audio cable. Made in China, but not the type that gets brittle and flakes apart. Perfect for replacing the headphone cable if you have a short stubby plug on the headphones. Note the length is one meter, but I find that perfect.

Cons: Not always at the best price

Other Thoughts: I picked up two of these for "the price of one" and was quite happy with the deal. I would not be as happy with regular pricing and added shipping costs, but this is a quality item.

ASUS RT-AC66R Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Range is terrific when compared to my previous Buffalo High-Power. Easily 10-20dB stronger at any distance. At some points it's the only 5GHz signal that I can "see".

Cons: ASUS firmware can be replaced by DD-WRT, but it's early in the DD-WRT releases for this model. It took me several tried to get an install of DD-WRT to be successful, but I much prefer that to the ASUS Factory Firmware.

Other Thoughts: I set up four (4) Buffalo High-Power Routers as a test field for the ASUS RT-AC66R (same as RT-AC66U). IN every case, the ASUS had a stronger signal at other access points as measured by the DD-WRT SITE SURVEY screen, and where other routers just disappeared (5GHz) the ASUS was still well above the noise level. On 2.4GHz that means 10-15dB stronger. One 5.0GHz that means up to 20-25dB stronger. Aftermarket antennas made the signals worse not better., so I would keep to the factory antennas unless you really are confident about what you are doing.

Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST2000NM0023 2TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: SAS Interface

Cons: Not SATA Interface

Other Thoughts: You cannot connect an SAS drive to a SATA drive bay or connector. There is a plastic key that prevents you connecting one to the other. So, in spite of the fact that NewEgg insists on listing this ST2000NM0023 as SATA 6Gbps, it is not and you will need to chat into newegg support to get an RMA and return it.

I gave the LISTING the one-star. The drive itself will be great for whoever can use it.
