This review is from: NETGEAR WNDR4500-100PAS N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
Pros: Looks Pretty and a decent Price
Cons: Never could use. I could not get my computer to communicate with with Router. I tried entering the IP Address and I tried downloading the NetGear Genie Application.
When using the NetGear Application the internet connection would connect and then immediately drop. I tired rebooting my Modem and the Router several times. It never worked. I tried several different methods of connecting the computer to the router. Never worked, I was never able to communicate with it.
I tried to connect to the Wireless using the supplied Password. My Laptop would connect, but said it had no Internet Access and could not access the Router homepage. My cell phone said their was network communication issues and dropped the WiFi connection and remained on 4G.
Other Thoughts: I don't know who is messing up at Netgear, but they need to get the situation corrected NOW! In the past you would never see any Netgear products with more than a few 1 Egg ratings. Now, their reviews are full of bad 1 Egg reviews all due to poor quality.
I have always bought Netgear, maybe it is time to rethink that...
This review is from: Antec Accent Lighting - Red
Pros: Great Little Light Strip. I have two of these inside my tower for case lighting. One running across the top, another at the bottom.
+Prefect Length to run Front-to-Back or Top-to-Bottom in your Case
+Sticky back Adhesive for mounting in case
+Can be Cut to Length (if needed)
+Thin size makes it easy to hide in Case
+Powered buy USB
+Long Power Cable
I know some people have complained about it being powered by USB when using for case lighting. However, my MB had a USB 2.0 plug on the MB. However, if it did not the wire is more than long enough that you could remove one of your unused expansion slot covers, run the wire out from of your case through the expansion slot and plug into the back of your MB.
Cons: As I stated I bought (2) of these, one from Newegg, then I wanted a second and saw them at a local vendor for only a few dollars more, so my instant gratification kicked in and I bought it one the spot.
In both cases the paper covering the adhesive strip is a PAIN to remove. It would start to peel easy and then tear, or half would continue to peel while the other half remained stuck the the strip. I would attempt to start removing the backing again, and sometimes I would pull a small (very small) amount of the adhesive off.
Maybe I got old ones that had been long forgotten about in a warehouse, but the paper backing was a pain on both strips.
This review is from: APEVIA CVTUSBE25 11" USB Extension Cable for a standard USB motherboard connector
Pros: Hard to Find item, for a reasonable price anyway, but finally found it here on Newegg. I found similar items on other websites, but one cable was $14.99 + $5-$10 for shipping!
I have been building high-end gaming PC's for years. Like most high PC builders I like to run my wires as neatly as possible, routing wires behind the MB tray for aesthetic and air flow purposes.
However, the USB 2.0 Header cables from your Front Panel are almost always too short to hide. Usually they are forced to run right across your side widow, messing up your pretty organization and hard work.
Then comes the APEVIA Extension Cable and BAM! Problem solved. I bought (1) of these for my Front Panel, then after seeing how well it worked I bough a few more to have spares.
Other Thoughts: Buy them, you will need themREAD FULL REVIEW
