This review is from: Swivel 'N' Whirl Socket Compact Outlet
Pros: Turns 2 outlets into 6 outlets (when it stays plugged in).
Cons: There is no screw in the center, no way to fasten this to the wall. When you unplug something from it, the whole thing will pull out of the wall.
Other Thoughts: Great idea, could definitely have been built better.
It looked better in the pictures. Hopefully it's not too late to return, because I purchased 4 of them.
This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-401E Powerline 500 AV Adapter Up to 500Mbps
Pros: Plug them in, and they just work! I'm using one on the main floor, and one on the 3rd floor, and they work so much better than WiFi!
I purchased 2 because that was the limit during the "Shell Shocker" sale. I'm going to get a 3rd next time they go on sale.
Cons: None so far.
Just be aware that this model number is only a SINGLE unit, and you need 2 or more to talk to each other.
Other Thoughts: Ignore the other review comments about them not supporting TiVo or Samsung TVs, etc. because that's not true.
If you plug them in as soon as you get them (without any setup) they will work right away. But they won't see other devices on your network until you use the setup utility (which is very easy to use).
Simply copy the name of your network to these devices, with the setup utility and they'll work with everything else on your network. I didn't mess with passwords or encryption on mine, just changed the network name.
Remember to AVOID SURGE PROTECTORS, and plug these directly into the wall, as the surge protector circuitry will filter out the network signals, and they won't work well.
This review is from: Macally Car20U 20 Watt Dual Port USB Car Charger
Pros: See my previous review. I love everything about this charger. It's not too big, and puts out the juice!
Cons: NONE! In my previous review, I did not realize that my Nexus was actually charging (although it did not show it with the power on).
A recent update now shows charging even as expected.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these, and will probably get a couple more. There is no better USB car charger out there, period!READ FULL REVIEW
