BELKIN  AP41300FC-10-BLK  PureAV PF60 Home Theater Power Console  10 Feet  Cord Length - Retail
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Very Reliable For Over 3 Years 04/17/2014

This review is from: BELKIN AP41300FC-10-BLK PureAV PF60 Home Theater Power Console 10 Feet Cord Length - Retail

Pros: No problems after over 3 years of continuous use.

Has survived several neighborhood power black-outs and the power surge that occurs when power is restored later.

Benefits include a slightly cleaner, less noisy/grainy TV picture on cable TV and Blu-Ray. It's not a huge difference but it's noticeable and, therefore, welcome.

The audio system has slightly crisper sound (most noticeable in the treble region).

Cons: The blue display panel is rather bright by default, but you can tap on the dimmer button a few times to make it barely visible.

Other Thoughts: We bought this in January 2011 from a different vendor who had it on sale. We leave it powered on 24/7 unless there's a power outage. Items connected to the PF60 include a plasma TV, a power-hungry amplifier, a pre-amp, a Blu-Ray player, and a quad-core computer with a fairly powerful graphics card. The Belkin handles all this with no problems. It has worked well for over 3 years now so we consider it to be a good investment.

TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Huge boost for laptop and iPad running at same time out on the deck and back yard.

Very easy setup for extending your existing Wi-Fi reception. For Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and iPad Mini we did not need to use the software on the included CD.

Also easy to create a private Wi-Fi network. This is very useful if your existing wireless network is shared with roommates or neighbors.

2-Year Warranty according to TP-Link website.

Works with our existing Netgear 500Mbps powerline adapter.

Wi-Fi booster unit also has bonus network jacks for 2 wired connections to other devices (a game console, a PC, a Blu-ray player, a TV, etc.)

Comes with two ethernet cables (6 ft. each approx.)

Cons: Small row of LED lights flicker in a distracting way if they are in your line of sight.

Other Thoughts: The Quick Install Guide is pretty clear and the actual setup is a few easy steps. You don't need to be an expert.

We're impressed that it provides really strong wireless outdoors even when she's on her iPad and i'm on my laptop. There are no slowdowns! It's plugged into a power outlet just below the window which looks out onto the deck, so reception is strong on the deck and all the way across the back yard - about 40 feet away.

We're equally impressed that it's compatible with our existing powerline adapter of a different brand (Netgear).
Once we got the TP-Link Wi-Fi booster going i unplugged the TP-Link powerline adapter which was near the router (connected with ethernet cable) and plugged our Netgear powerline adapter back in. Everything works OK.

Another convenient factor is we can unplug the Wi-Fi booster unit when we don't need wireless outdoors, and it still works perfectly the next time we plug it in. Just wait a few seconds for it to get going.

Ran a speed test using this TP-Link adapter and got almost the same download /upload speeds as we get on a wired connection (28Mbps Down and 5.2Mbps Up).

This kit is a clear winner for anyone needing boosted Wi-Fi or who needs to create a small "private" Wi-Fi when sharing an internet connection with others.

SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Outstanding Write Speed 04/15/2014

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive

Pros: Super-fast performance for a USB flashdrive.

Leaves most other brands in the dust, and the speed on reading & writing documents and other small files (like Windows operating system files) is 6 to 10 times better than competing models from Patriot or Lexar or Kingston.

Lifetime Warranty is the best you can get. Compare to other brands' 1-year to 5-year warranty.

Cons: Regular price is expensive!

Other Thoughts: There are several brands of high-performance flashdrives that have good speed for transferring large files and this Sandisk Extreme is among them. In addition, the Sandisk is blazing fast when working with small files and with mixed files and folders - it simply blows away other contenders.
