This review is from: APC P4WUSB 4 Outlets 1000 J Essential Surge Suppressor
Pros: Charges well, not sure of how many amps the USB ports give (so it's probably low)
Cons: Only 4 sockets, compared to the 6 socket version without USB. Seems like a silly limitation.
Other Thoughts: Looks much nicer than a standard USB charger, and a lot less wobbly. The sideways facing AC sockets are also very nice. I own several of this style, I like them very much.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100 Black
Pros: Quiet, no problems in close to a year.
Cons: Requires an external power adaptor (the kind that wastes space on a power strip)
Other Thoughts: My router with USB3 ports is slower than it should be for file transfers, but the drives works as they should when plugged into a computer (whether over network or not). This seems to be a limitation of USB3 for devices with less horsepower.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: More invisible than an HDMI cable
Cons: Less range than a short HDMI cable, laggier too (obviously).
Other Thoughts: HDMI cables don't require a USB cable for power.READ FULL REVIEW
