Pros: It's nice and small, just works when I plug it in. I like how unobtrusive this is when I have it on the back of my case, and it doesn't took too bad up in the front. The LED light on it is very dim, and just gently glows in the dark.
The price is very fair for this.
Cons: It only connects to 2.4Ghz G and N and not the 5Ghz N or AC which I found to be much faster when I compared it to my Wireless AC adapter. However considering the price, this is a small con.
When I have it on the back of my case and want to take it out, it's kind of a pain when it's surrounded by other connected devices, making me remove the other surrounding USB devices to get this out. Considering this will normally just sit in a USB port, this is a small con.
Other Thoughts: A decent little adapter. I would imagine this would be perfect to replace the WiFi on an older laptop that only has Wireless G or maybe even for a laptop that has failing WiFi Due to it's low profile you'll be able to toss the laptop in a bag with this attached. I found this very convenient .READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PB10400 :10400mAh Dual-USB Ultra External Portable Charger/ Power Bank,2A Fast Charging, Compatible with iphone, ipad and all iOS and Android Devices, Practical Flashlight
Pros: It's a wonderful battery that'll charge everything I plug into it. I'm using this to charge almost everything I have. It's unbelievable the situations I used this for.
My PS4 controller was running low on juice and this charged it right up. Having the two ports on this is ideal for two players with controllers that need charging.
Also found that it charges my eJuice Vaporizor batteries pretty quickly. From my Kanger EVOD batteries to my Hana DNA30 Box mod, this battery charged them right up.
When I use the charging brick from my nVidia Shield or Kindle Fire HDX to charge this, it charges very quickly.
The flashlight on this is what you would expect from a single LED. Not the best, but it'll do in a pinch.
Best part is that it lasts a while between charges. It charged my 18% charged Fire HDX fully and only 1/4 of the this chargers battery was gone according to the LED indicator light on it.
I found that when not used, the battery held it's charge and was ready at fully charged a several days after being taken off the charger.
It's a sturdy battery, with a nice thick heavy high quality feel. The diamond pattern on the top is useful for quickly distinguishing top and bottom without looking, a good design choice. Another excellent design choice is the location of it's charging port, being on the side is much more useful than having it either on the bottom or near the USB ports.
Cons: I'm not a fan of a few choices in the design. It's glossy and mine has it's share of hairline scratches. Thankfully it's white so they aren't too noticeable. Also It's kinda chunky. I wanted to bring it with me on a day trip, but due to it's girth and heaviness, I couldn't find a pocket to fit it in comfortably.
Other Thoughts: I've bought a few Portable Chargers in the past. Most have had some function of it stop working. Whether it be a bad port, or the LED indicator stopped working, I've always had an issue.
But not with this Charger. This TP-Link Charger, while not the most portable battery, it's incredibly useful.
For example, while I charge my Kindle on my night stand at night, it's a pain to charge it while reading or playing a game. This battery came in incredibly useful in that situation.
Another time was when I was playing Destiny and my PS4 controller and DNA30 were running low. Plugged them both in and was good to go for another gaming/vaping session.
And while it's not pocketable, it's easy enough to toss into my laptop bag along with my Chromebook and Fire HDX. What's cool is that if my HDX is low on battery I stick the battery in the bag with it and have it charge the HDX. Was also useful to use this batter to power my Bluetooth speaker that I use for my Chromebook.
I found so many uses for this portable charger that I couldn't knock off an egg for a few aesthetic issues. It is a very large capacity charger, so the size is forgivable, and the glossy white is better than glossy black (or any color really) as scratches are less noticeable against white.
This review is from: ASRock Z97 Extreme4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This motherboard is loaded with options and I appreciate the flexibility provided. Being able to use Crossfire and SLI on the same board is useful, I tend to switch often between AMD and nVidia throughout the year on the same machine.
The amount of options with regards to storage is also very thoughtful. MSATA is a nice option to have, as it saves some space in your drivebays in your case if you decide to use it. The SATA-Express port is also neat, if you have a drive that can take advantage of it. If you decide to forgo those newer storage options granted by the board you still have 9 SATA Ports for drives, and as someone with a long list of Steam games and Digital Media, the more space for drives the better.
The board itself is really well built. Nice Heatsinks across the board, handy Power/Reset buttons on the board itself, which are useful for testing.
BIOS/UEFI is pretty standard, the overclocking settings are easy to get to. Memory can be overclocked to 3200Mhz. I Overclocked my 4670k, but about as far as I got with any other Z97 board I've used, 4.6Ghz. There's a decent amount of room around the CPU socket area for a large heatsink like the Corsair A50 or Coolermaster 212+.
Cons: I really have nothing negative to say about this board.
Other Thoughts: This is really a nice board, it's current price seems about right for how feature laden this board is and how flexible it is to use.READ FULL REVIEW
