TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline 200 AV Nano Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Better than expected 07/11/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline 200 AV Nano Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps

Pros: Its a good alternative to internet over WiFi

Simply to use and setup, literally plug and play

Came with all the necessary equipment and no software is required, although it does come with a install guide CD

Cons: None really; I did not achieve the 200 MB/s speeds, however they may be capable of that on different networks

Other Thoughts: I didn't initially expect these adapters to perform as well as they did. I achieved a consistent 100 MB/s over my network which was plenty for all my online needs.

These units also performed better than my WiFi setup I had running on my son's computer, in terms of online multiplayer, I was able to game on Black Ops II multiplayer with very little lag or interuptions.

Obviously the biggest downside to getting a powerline adapter is depending on your house's wiring. My house was built with in the last 15years so I didn't have any serious issues with the two adapters running the signal from one to the other through my powerlines. I have heard of older houses having issues achieving a stable and consistent connection.

I think on the whole this is a great alternative to buying simple WiFi adapters or running range extenders. My results were great and can't see not recommending them.

Western Digital WD AV-25 WD5000BUCT 500GB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Dependable hard drive
simply plug and play install
great upgrade to older laptop

Cons: 5400RPM is a bit slow for today's standards but that's not really a large enough con to take egg off, you know what your buying.

Other Thoughts: Simple 2.5" laptop hard drive was easy to install and produced expected performance. Reads/Write speeds were right around 50 to 80Mb/s which was pretty typical. It worked right away, didn't emit very much heat, and made zero audible noise.

This is a great upgrade if you own an older laptop and need more storage. If you currently have a newer laptop with a 7200RPM hard drive already installed in your laptop this hard drive will probably be slower, however the added capacity is nice.

Another alternative would be to upgrade the stock PS3 hard drive to this one, as its performance would be similar if not slightly faster and it would severely increase your capacity as game and media storage consistently demand more GBs'

Theater Solutions TS217 2.1CH Computer/Home Multimedia Speaker System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great Value!
very clear, output
build quality is very sturdy

Cons: - None -

Other Thoughts: I bought this speaker set on a newegg ShellShocker deal for only $35!

Needless to say my expectations were not particularly high but it seemed like a good value non-the-less. The speakers themselves are of high quality material and feel very sturdy in the hand. The 300w of power is simply amazing, especially considering that your average "gaming" 2.1 speaker setup only produces anywhere from 30w to maybe a 100w.

The sound clarity is excellent, and sound every bit as good has a high quality gaming headset. Even at $60.00 I still believe these speakers to be worth the investment
