LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do and does it well. The first thing I did was I made some back-up discs with BD-R 50gb DL 4x media to fee up some space on my hard drive. I burned 5 of these flawlessly. This unit was detected immediately when installed. (Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit)

Cons: None really. Very quiet when reading a disc but louder when burning. Not any louder than the LG DVD Burner it replaced.

Other Thoughts: It is BDXL Compatible (128gb Discs) and plays 3D movies. You might want to get some 3rd party software (Not Included) to play/watch movies.

NETGEAR FS205 5-Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch in Plastic Case - Essentials Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Gave me an additional internet connection, to an HDDVR, without any slowdown. The 10/100 speed worked fine for my needs.

Cons: Very lightweight plastic, moves around a lot. I used some Velcro to put it where I needed it. Some rubber feet would have been nice also. The prongs on the power adapter should face the other way. The adapter took up 3 plugs on my power strip. I ended up using an extension cord.

Other Thoughts: Delivered 10/100 speed to the computer in my bedroom (Over a 75 foot cat 6 Ethernet cable from the router in the living room). We recently added a TV with an HDDVR so we needed a second connection. I was also able to view movies streamed from my bedroom to living room using Plex while surfing and streaming movies from On-Demand to the HDDVR with no slowdown at all and the movies on the living room TV using Plex, (Blu-Ray) looked outstanding without pixilation .

NETGEAR WN111 Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Not Bad, Not Bad At All!!! 06/08/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR WN111 Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter

Pros: Improved signal strength to desktop computer at least 50 feet away with a N300 router. Now I get at least 80+ Mbps when I used to get less than 10 Mbps with a PCI wireless Linksys WMP54GS adapter. Surfing is much improved with faster page loads and faster downloads.

Cons: Did not come with Window 7 drivers so I got them from the Netgear web site. I had this puppy running on Windows 7 32bit & 64bit flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: Be aware of interference. Most routers, cordless phones and ceiling fans with remotes operate on the 2.4Ghz frequency. My cordless phone base was 1 foot from my router, when I moved the phone base to about 12 feet away signal quality improved from 2 bars to 4 bars. We don't have a ceiling fan in the room with the router
