This review is from: On Networks N150 Wireless Router, Open Source Ready - N150R
Pros: Got 2 for $5 each but the $5 MIR was only 1 per adress. Was going to return the other but for $5 its pretty sweet. As others have said stock firmware is trash. Flashed netvear firmware using netgear's guide here: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/22688/~/how-to-upload-firmware-to-a-wndr3700v2-router-using-tftp
One thing-for most people u:p is admin:password
For my routers u:p was admin:admin
Netgear interface is nice.
Cons: Does take a little work to make product work well but $5 for decent hardware? Worth it. Speed is 150mbps but i knew that going in so technically not a con but be aware.
Other Thoughts: If on rebate again will buy more.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung S5 (G900) Wireless Healthy Activity Tracker (EI-AN900) Black
Pros: It was free after rebate. It tracks my steps and can track sleep patterns (I dont use sleep function). Battery lasts the work week and charges fast. App is pretty straightforward which is suprising for a samsung app. I guess they are learning. What can I say. It works. I clip it to my undershirt and forget it. I've never had problems with newegg rebates and don't expect any.
UPDATE: Finally Killed my Note 2. Maxym M. left easy instructions to get tracker working on non samsung phones. I can verify that I used those instructions to get tracker working flawlessly on Verizon Kyocera Hydro Elite on Jellybean 4.1 and LG G3 on Lollipop 5.1.
Cons: None. Free and working fine. Some people's phone have this functionality already built in. Although my flagship phone is still awesome it is a 2012 (Note II) model so it doesn't have the activity hardware built in. The phone apparently can be used as a pedometer but with the constant phone use it murdered my battery. The tracker doesn't even connect until I turn my bluetooth on so no phone drain.
UPDATE: Sometimes won't connect on first try. Not sure if this is because I leave bluetooth off. Doesn't matter to me though because if it fails to connect i just hit retry. This happened on all 3 phones i used it on (1 samsung, 1 kyocera, 1 LG). I left bluetooth off on all until i wanted to pair.
Other Thoughts: NO WAY would I pay the retail price. For $20 and under worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Charges everything fast even when all 4 USB ports in use. Doesn't Get too hot even with 4 devices being charged. Pretty compact. Got 3 of them free after rebate.
Cons: i have no international devices to verify that function.
Other Thoughts: no brainer especially with rebate.READ FULL REVIEW
