JVC HA-NCX78 3.5mm Gold-Plated Connector Canal Noise Cancelling Headphone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good selection of ear pads, good fit, good sound.

Cons: Poor to non-existent noise cancelling.

Other Thoughts: I've tried these in both a cube farm as well as a couple of long flights. The noise cancelling does reduce low droning noise, but does nothing to reduce anything else. I found I got more noise cancellation from the good fit, than from the active noise cancellation. I might buy them again for the fit & sound, certainly not for the noise cancellation.

HGST Travelstar H2IK10003272SN (0S03563) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Not sure I can list a pro, except maybe the budget price. But, if it's not reliable, even if it's free, it's not worth it.

Cons: I've had this drive for around 4 months when it failed on a 3 year warranty. WD/HGST did accept it for an RMA, and it took 3 weeks without a drive for a replacement to arrive. In less than 3 days of use after receiving the replacement, it's now failed again.

I'm probably not going to bother going back through warranty again. I'll have to purchase a replacement from someone else (and WD/HGST will not get my business back.)

ASUS RT-N16 Wireless Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps DD-WRT Open Source support with USB Storage, Printer And Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fairly painless out of the box setup. Easy navigation on the configuration interface.

Cons: No offline configuration, the initial setup wizard requires that it be connected in place before you can get to the main configuration.

Configuration hangs in the DHCP configuration screen through a browser, it's usable through the Asus router configuration utility.

You cannot configure non-standard ports in the NAT/QoS Port Forwarding screen. They're silently dropped after a save/apply. For me, this is a show stopper.

Other Thoughts: I've gotten around the port forwarding issue, but the solution would break the review guidelines. Mine is no longer running Asus firmware.

For the majority of the users, this should be a very usable router. For those of use with more advanced requirements, I'd look elsewhere. I don't think I'm going to return the 2 that I've purchased, but I will not be purchasing any more.

I've only given 3 out of 5 eggs as a result of the firmware problems. Most users will simply never see what I've encountered.
