This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-712BR N150 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Great value for the price. Installation and configuration were very easy. Wireless range is adequate for my house, but the speed does drop off with the distance. Measured idle power consumption at around 1.3 W. Very impressive.
Cons: None, if you have reasonable expectations given the price.
Other Thoughts: Know what you want and need. I'm sure you can find a router with better wireless coverage. Just not at this price and power consumption.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARRIS SurfBoard SB6121 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Bought this for my new Comcast internet service. Comcast offered to rent me a modem for $7 per month. Thanks, but no thanks. Installation was easy. There is nothing to configure. Just connect and contact Comcast to give them MAC address, serial number. No problem getting the advertised speed. Why would anyone want to rent?
Cons: Measured power consumption: approximately 5 W. You can feel the heat. Not very impressive. Someone should be able to build a more efficient device.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this drive as an upgrade to a 6 year old Toshiba laptop. The laptop is old, but still serves its purpose well. Installation was simple. Used 'systemrescuecd' to partition new drive and move content from old drive - including XP partition - to new one (dual boot configuration). Quieter and faster than original 80 Gb / 4200 rpm drive.
Cons: Paying a premium for older technology (IDE). But wait another year or so, and you won't even be able to buy such drives anymore.
Other Thoughts: Newegg.com delivery was fast!READ FULL REVIEW
