This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N300RT (RNWB-11001) Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft 2, DD-WRT Open Source Support, Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates 1 x 10/100M WAN; 4 x 10/100 LAN
Pros: Easily modded to use DD-WRT firmware, which opens up a whole host of options. Has surprisingly good reception, especially when 40mhz bands are used vs. the default 20mhz. Overall, it took approximately 15 min to configure and install the router, and that was with having to do a factory reset once b/c i messed up a setting. These two routers run 24/7x365, or at least for the past month solid. No issues, good connection with capable wireless cards.
Overall CHEAP solution to wireless bridges
Cons: No cons, save for the fast ethernet, wish it was gigabit.
Other Thoughts: Using two of these as wireless bridges, one for my ps3, raspberry pi media center and yamaha receiver. The other is giving net access to my desktop upstairs and whatever else I want up there eventually lol.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pioneer SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
Pros: Non-Distorted Highs, Great Mids, and more bass than I was expecting! I want a pair for myself, but I live in an apartment and don't want to irritate my neighbors. They would make excellent Rear or Front speakers in a 5.1 or 7.1 setup. The staging is near perfect at about 6-10 feet away at an elevation of 3-5 feet. These pump out serious air, I'd recommend leaving room behind these if near a wall to allow full resonance.
Cons: I suppose there could be a little more bass, but that's my personal taste in music (Drum and Bass). His music hits all over the place so not a con for most. I still don't have a pair myself? They're too inexpensive and can be easily overlooked. Won't overthrow speakers that cost 5x as much, maybe a lower goal, like 2-3x as much is more achievable.
Other Thoughts: Hooked these up to my father in law's aging system (old speakers caught on fire due to old age and dust). A 50wX2 Ch. receiver pushes these. They sound perfect and he loves music and is an avid listener and found zero faults. Be careful, it's easy to overload these speakers at only 6 Ohms. His receiver is around 8 yrs old and still puts out plenty of power, and is hitting near the 80w max of these speakers and they don't complain a bit.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 14K White Gold 1/3 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring
Pros: Decent quality diamonds.
Cons: Pictures are worthless, this dealer really needs more than one photo, took a gamble because I trust newegg, and I trusted that they would have quality products on their marketplace. I was incorrect in this assumption.
Other Thoughts: Ring is hollow underneath of diamonds, not just a little either, I understand that due to the nature of the design it would be this way, however it is appalling at the lack of quality aside from the diamonds. Sizing was good though.
Probably won't buy again...ever.
