Netgear A6210-100PAS AC1200 Wi-Fi USB Adapter High Gain Dual Band USB 3.0

4 out of 5 eggs Good WiFi Adapter 10/25/2014

This review is from: Netgear A6210-100PAS AC1200 Wi-Fi USB Adapter High Gain Dual Band USB 3.0

Pros: Increase of signal and bandwidth for Desktop and Laptop - I have used a number of TP-Link and Netgear adapters and I must say this one performed the best by far.

Location of Wifi - Product was able to consistently find my weaker 5ghz signal, which no other adapter has done as well.

Install - The install CD worked perfect and firmware updates from Netgear went flawlessly, which is a trait of Netgear. Using a Netgear router with a Netgear adapter made thing extremely easy. Took 5 min to install and get things going, not counting another 5 min for the firmware update. GET THE UPDATE!!!

Netgear Genie Software - Helped giving network info. Info can then be saved using 'get info' to be able to send info about your system to Netgear to have them assist with any issues.

Performance - 2.4 band Download Speed = 23.2 Mbps, Upload Speed = 3.8 Mbps. 5hz band Download Speed = 16.1 Mbps, Upload speed = 3.2 Mbps.

Desktop Dock - Do not have that on any of my other adapters and it helps for positioning and keeping it from being damaged.

Cons: SIZE - The size of the device is huge!! This can be overcome by using it with the dock on my PC's, it is a large issue when using it on a laptop. If I used this on my laptop long term, it would either damage the laptop usb port or break itself.

Favoring 5ghz band - The adapter 8 out of 10 times would pick the 5ghz band, which has a lower signal strength and slower bandwidth.

Loss of Internet Connection - Upon turning on the laptop, about 30% of the time the wifi would have handoff issues and not connect. I didn't have this issue with my desktop to wifi network.

House walls - Drop off in performance when two walls needed to be gone thru, which is common with all adapters I own.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7, Lenovo T430, Netgear duel band router.

Would have been nice if UPS delivered the product to my house instead of a street away, costing me five days.

This product was the best wifi adapter that I own by far. The sharp edges and large size will bother you for a laptop, but you will not care for your desktop.

BUY IT!!!

WD Red Pro 2 TB NAS Hard Drive WD2001FFSX up to 16 bay: 3.5-inch SATA 6, 64MB Cache

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Desktop Drive and good NAS drive 09/21/2014

This review is from: WD Red Pro 2 TB NAS Hard Drive WD2001FFSX up to 16 bay: 3.5-inch SATA 6, 64MB Cache

Pros: Packaging was the most impressive I have ever seen from a hard drive maker. Most times drives come in air wrap or nothing at all. The use of foam was a nice touch that foreshadowed the quality of the drives.

64 MD Cache, allowing the drive to surpass most other drives.

Initialization of the drive was surprisingly fast compared to my other WD HDD.
Tested the drives in a RAID0 setup to maximize desktop testing results. Average read speed came in at 141 MB's per second, while write speeds were at 111 MB's per second.

NAS setup results were less impressive, as would be expected. Average read speed came in at 69 MB's per second while the average write speed was 32 MB's per second on a file that was 312 MB's.

Video play back from the drive turned in 89 MB's per second.

The 5 year warranty, which I confirmed with Western Digital, is a huge plus for a HDD product. My other WD drive came with a 3 year warranty.

Cons: Nothing!

Other Thoughts: System Setup:
Intel iCore7
MSI Motherboard
Kingston SSD
Western Digital HDD
NetGear 3700 Wireless
Motorola Cable Router

The drive is a perfect PC Desktop drive, with excellent performance versus standard 5400 drives and even fast 7200 drives. Installation is fast and effortless, with no error issues. Warranty is the one of the best you will ever see and is backed by great customer service that is the norm from Western Digital. I have used their customer service on my other drive, and came away impressed with their knowledge and speed.

DEEPCOOL M6 Laptop Cooling Pad 17
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent at Cooling a Laptop 08/27/2014

This review is from: DEEPCOOL M6 Laptop Cooling Pad 17" with 2.1 Speaker System 140mm Fan 4 USB Ports

Pros: A decently quiet 140mm fan that was very effective at reducing the temp of my laptop. The fan has an adjustable speed and the speed determines the noise level.
Laptop didn't slowdown when being cooled by the product, which ALWAYS overheats and slows down a lot.
Able to listen to my ipod from the audio jack.
Cool looking design, but that maybe because I am a guy and like the race car looks of the product.
Nice touch to be able to charge my Samsung phone with the MicroUSB connector.
You can run up the sound loud enough to hear it over screaming kids, but it does tend to vibrate and sound 'tinny'.
Can handle a 17" Laptop with ease.

Cons: Kind of large and makes using my laptop at the table impossible due to the thickness.
Tends to attract dirt and hair very easy due to the fan.
Takes up a lot of space when not in use.
Kind of a thin and tinny sound with base heavy music.
Used to USB being on the side, but the back did work but not ideal.

Other Thoughts: Lenovo Laptop with a SSD drive. Intel i5 core. Windows 7.
Running video games at max settings to drive heat, which the fan was able to handle on full.
Ran Lotus, Word, explorer at the same time and had no issues with cooling.
Played mainly hard rock music, which it did good with but heavy base music sounded kind of thin on base.
