WD My Passport 1TB USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Compact and portable, plug and play little HDD with a lot of storage. Feels solid. I use it for my nightly scheduled backups.

Cons: None that I can think of.

TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite L955D-S5364 AMD A-Series A6-4455M (2.10GHz) 6GB Memory 640GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7500G 15.6
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Actually a nice laptop if you like el cheapo version of Win 8.

Would work fine for basic users who don't do much tweaking.

Cons: These new computers have the Windows product ID hard coded into the bios. There is no getting rid of it. There are no drivers for Win 7 even if you edit to change product ID (Win 7 only).

I have everything working with Win 7 except ethernet, wireless and video driver.

DON'T delete the restore partition. You'll need it if you try to upgrade to Win 8 Pro or revert to Win 7. They won't work. Win 8 has the product key buried and encrypted in the registry and I can't edit it.

Definitely a beginner's laptop, for use without tweaking.

TRENDnet TEW-640MB N300 Wireless 4-Port Media Bridge

3 out of 5 eggs Difficult 06/06/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-640MB N300 Wireless 4-Port Media Bridge

Pros: Seems to work well after difficult setup

Cons: Very confusing setup, requiring doing Trendnet's job for them.

Do not buy if you aren't network savvy.

Other Thoughts: I received a reply from Trendnet which was a cop-out. This appliance ships with a static IP address and wants you to fill in the IP of the default gateway. Well, the default gateway is your router.

Of all the lame excuses I've seen, Trendnet's takes the cake. I explained below how to set it up, but it shouldn't be necessary. It would plug and play if it had a dynamic IP selected in setup.

If your system goes down and this unit won't work, once you have rebooted your modem and router and your internet is working, simply unplug this unit and plug it back in. It needs to be rebooted too. That's it.

Just be sure that when you first get it you follow my suggestions below, log into it using Internet Explorer and change it to "Auto."

Now reboot everything and mine works fine.

Trendnet should ship the unit set to auto and it would plug and play.
