This review is from: Toshiba 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model PFM016U-1DAK
Pros: Stores data without losing it.
Good amount storage space.
Smaller than my fingernails.
Cons: Easy to lose- which barely counts as a con.
Other Thoughts: It's a run of the mill flash card that does what it says it does. Nothing more, nothing less.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EnGenius ERB9250 IEEE802.11b/g/n Wireless-N300 Smart Repeater
Pros: Easy/Simple guided set up.
Picks up and repeats a signal throughout a fairly large area/home.
Works without switching network IDs or names.
Speed for everything but large file transfers is the same as my router.
Cons: Sometimes in order to switch between routers, a disconnect/reconnect is required, which isn't mentioned in the manual.
Other Thoughts: It's a cheap but serviceable repeater that makes life easier, since my modem's on the west side of my house, but I spend a lot of time in the east side. I'm very pleased with this purchase, and would fully recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This is a pretty great board- both the hardware and included software have left me mostly quite pleased.
AI Suite III made overclocking a breeze, though occasionally it's made choices that have left me unstable.
Included BIOS are easy to navigate and use. I like that there's a simple and advanced mode, and there's no shortage of fun little options to play with to make things run the way I want.
Built in Wifi and Bluetooth have helped me reduce cord clutter to an absolute lifetime minimum. Once I get a wireless connection to the TV, there will only be one cord attached to the whole system. I love that this board allows that.
Runs nice and cool. I like that.
Cons: I'm having issues with the rear USB 3.0 ports deciding not to recognize my wireless keyboard on and off. This has happened with two different windows installs and multiple driver updates. It's absolutely fine when connected through the front of the case, though. Go figure. Eventually I might just decide to go full bluetooth with this instead, if I can get it to auto-load on startup.
Other Thoughts: When first building my PC I ran into an issue where the Q-Code was at 00, the machine wouldn't boot at all, and the manual/online help had no information about this. Turns out a couple of the CPU power connectors hadn't quite clicked and the CPU wasn't on. While the issue was my fault, I feel that they could benefit from adding possible explanations for this Q-code.READ FULL REVIEW
