Pros: I have been using TPLink adapters for years; I always have one in case a customer's unit has a failed NIC. I plug in the unit, install the drivers, and am online in 45 seconds.
Cons: This one DOA; installed the drivers, and the wizard asks for the unit to be plugged into a USB port even when it already is, and the drivers will not recognize the adapter. SIW hardware scanner and Speccy both do not register the adapter when plugged in. I plugged in an older unit, the WN321G and it started working just fine on the new drivers! So the drivers were good.
Other Thoughts: My compliments to Newegg; Customer Service immediately issued me a CR. I will be ordering another one. This one was just bad- it happens. Stellar customer service like this is why I recommend Newegg on the computer help site I mod on, Suggest-A-Fix, and Bleeping Computer which I regularly post on. Keep up the good work, Newegg!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Northwestern Bell NWB-20270-1 Big Button with Caller ID WHITE
Pros: So far, so good. Note that I wall-mounted this phone.
>LED: large and easy to read, which is a plus. However, see Cons below.
>Nice looking phone, and that counts bigtime with me.
>Large, easy to read and access buttons that are backlit when the receiver is lifted off the hook. Very nice touch! Braille markings on buttons, another nice touch.
>Ringer tone has a nice, somewhat mellow sound as opposed to others that are high-pitched and obnoxious (this is my opinion only, of course).
Cons: >LED: Only problem is that the readout screen is tilted slightly for ease of viewing when the phone is on a desktop; when mounted on the wall I must bend way down to read it which is a real nuisance. For example, if someone has bad back problems this could be a real annoyance. Minus one egg.
>Cord: Phone jack cord supplied is way too long for wall mount, about 24". The extra-cord-wrap storage space indent on the rear is way too small and won't work. Bad engineering planning. I had to go out and purchase a small cord. Minus one egg.
>Large scratch (maybe dust) in the INSIDE surface of the LED screen. Bad quality control. Not worth the hassle of a return. Minus one egg.
>Tiny, weak plastic catch that "hooks" and holds the handset when on the wall mount will definitely break within a year of use. I took an epoxy glue and applied it to front and rear which will add strength, but I suspect that it will eventually break. I have been down this road with other phones in the past.
>Batteries not supplied. Ok, many are doing this now so I can live with it. See other thoughts below.
Other Thoughts: This phone will accept a wall socket adapter, but note that it is not supplied. At least the manufacturer should inform a customer where he can purchase one. If you want one, note that this adapter is POSITIVE POLARITY and is 6 volts. I have an old 5 volt adapter that I used and it works fine. Make sure the polarity of any adapter you purchase is Positive Polarity and it can vary a couple of volts either way without any problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Fast and stable when it ran (although not burn-jn tested).
Cons: I had this model board previously. 2 months out of 1 yr. warranty it died. I purchased this board as replacement and it is faulty; I did a bench build and it ran fine until I installed it in the box and connected the front panel headers. Then it failed to POST. Detached the front panel connectors and it booted & ran perfectly. Did this several times. I reset BIOS back to default, no difference. RMA'd back to Newegg.
Other Thoughts: Too bad, Asrock seems to be lax on quality testing before shipping their boards, I am noticing a lot of complaints on their boards, Newegg and other online suppliers also.READ FULL REVIEW
