This review is from: HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)
Pros: Doesn't spontaneously catch fire?
Cons: I was eager to get this as my system is under my desk. I immediately connected it to the StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cable I got and then connected it to one of the USB 3 ports on my system. At first, the device lit up and seemed to be fine. It was immediately recognized and installed by Windows. I then tried to use it by connecting a USB flash drive. The drive was detected and usable for about 3 seconds before it was disconnected and the lights on the hub were hardly lit. Okay, so it seems this thing can't even handle a single usb stick. I tried all four ports to make sure it wasn't just one bad port. Once I tried the topmost port, the plastic in it came out with the drive... I tried to move the device to another USB3 port with the exact same results.
Other Thoughts: I should have just gone with a cheapo USB hub, at least then I would've gotten what I paid for.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This was a gift for my sister who had a DMC-TZ3 that was showing its age. This camera was a great upgrade as its in the same Lumix line and has familiar functions and controls. The zoom is great to have as well as the mobile phone remote control feature! The time between shots is nearly nothing and the time from power on to your first shot is incredibly short.
Cons: Short battery life, so I just got the extended batteries with it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great user interface, Several great features, (when working), great speed!
Cons: Does not work well with Charter internet. Asus routers have a non-standard DHCP request process. Unfortunately, this causes Charters systems to block the modem / router whenever it decides it wants to re-request dhcp. Thus, if you have Charter, don't get this router unless you enjoy the idea of restarting your network hardware multiple times a day.
Other Thoughts: I've already worked with both ASUS and Charter tech supports and even sent the router back to be 'repaired' twice with no success.READ FULL REVIEW
