This review is from: Logitech Z130 5W 2.0 Speakers
Pros: Looks ok.
Cons: Included wall-wart (power supply) was 5v @ 1.5a, whereas these speakers want 10v @ 700ma. The power supply won't even plug into the speaker, let alone power it.
Other Thoughts: Disappointing, and my time is worth more than the effort required to return the item. Total loss.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC BRACKET-250 2.5" HDD/SSD Metal Mounting Kit
Pros: This is solid with a nice paint job and a good finish. Comes with screws, which I never need but it's a nice touch anyway.
Cons: NO BOTTOM MOUNTING HOLES. This thing has four little holes for mounting the SSD, and SIDE ONLY mounting holes for the bracket itself. My case trays attach to hard drives through the bottom, not the sides.
Yes, there is another review that points out this could be useless to you because it ONLY HAS SIDE MOUNTING HOLES. If I saw the other review, it didn't register. Not a great loss at $5, but still...
As it turns out, Fractal Design's HD trays (at least for my case) have little SSD holes, so I didn't need this anyway. Should have looked carefully before buying this, both at the item itself and at what was in my case.
Pros: Great performance for wired connections, and decent wireless performance.
Cons: Minor stuff: This product is now on the end-of-life list at EnGenius (the V2 version is current). This router responds to pings even if told not to.
Other Thoughts: This router got a good review due to great price/performance at SmallNetBuilder, and my experience matches: Excellent wired performance, handles LOTS of connections well with 3x the net wired throughput of my old router. The wireless performance seems about the same as my previous, five-year-old router, which is fine, I mainly have a wired home network.
I would have liked to have known that this model is end-of-lifed, but it's still a good deal.
I debated dropping an egg from the rating due to the router returning pings, but that's pretty minor as security problems go.
