Klipsch Synergy F-20 Premium Dual 6.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Really impressive, money or no. 12/02/2014

This review is from: Klipsch Synergy F-20 Premium Dual 6.5" Floor-standing Speaker Single

Pros: These are pretty impressive speakers. When you listen to music with a lot of dynamics and range, it's great. At first they sounded a little harsh in the mid - treble, but now I'd call it clarity . Then I bi-amped them (cool feature if you have a and b speakers on your amp) and now they sound even more clear. I'm guessing that as we play them more the sound will soften - though it could be a feature of the tweeter, I'm not a serious audiophile, and it was an impulse buy (like at this price, with free shipping? Gimme.)

Cons: I'm using them for music, rather than car crashes, but on some passages I think they would benefit from a subwoofer, but there's some great deals on subs too.

ASUS RT-N53 Dual Band Wireless N600 SOHO Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, Fast Ethernet, 5 Guest SSID, Parental Access Time control to Each User
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Worked fine at first.

Cons: Tried to set my old ASUS router as a repeater; after hours of tinkering with settings couldn't get the RT-53 it to log on the internet, after a couple of factory resets. Reset my old RT-N12 and it's working great as always. I've set up several wireless networks, but I'm not a serious techie, and life is brief. It's going back.

Other Thoughts: I guess I'm not so smart. Should have taken it back to xxx's as soon as I saw ratings on Newegg, but I thought I was smart. Not so smart, apparently.

Patriot PCUSBW1150 WI-FI USB Adapter USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I got this for my daughter's hand-me-down old school laptop, with internal wireless G. It set up easily, and connected reliably from day one, it's tiny, and has a cute flickering light. She had been complaining her computer was slow, and in the process of a home remodel I disconnected the ethernet from my desktop and popped in the Patriot. Hooked right up.

Cons: Yes, it hooked right up - allegedly at 30mbps. Certainly not "up to" 150mbs, but still way faster than my cable modem's 10-20 mbps (tested on ethernet) right? Wrong. Real world hook up to the internet (with latest drivers) is 1-3 mbps. Really noticeably, doggy, annoyingly slow.

Other Thoughts: I should listen to my kid - I just though she wanted shiny and new, but when I hooked up the antique ethernet, she was happy. I've ordered a 300mbps wireless usb to try, and I guess I'll dig up the old 3-antenna Airlink monstrosity for my desktop. Mama don't allow them ethernet cables round here. Time will tell.
