This review is from: Cuisinart CSB-33 White 16 oz. Jar Size Quick Prep Hand Blender 2 speeds
Pros: good value on sale
Cons: Fairly rugged build except the blade and shaft connection seems very fragile looking. See how it holds up over time I guess.
Other Thoughts: Been looking for economical hand blender. Grabbed this when on sale $20 as seemed good value. On receipt made broccoli parsnip soup. Did the job quick and easy. Can do it hot and much neater than regular blender. It was exactly what I was looking for.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK UC100 USB Cradle
Pros: Free. I didn't know I was getting it.
Cons: Doesn't work. Shows as unknown device on two XP 32 bit systems, a linux system and Win 7 system. Nothing I tried got it recognized.
Other Thoughts: I wish I hadn't gotten this cradle. I didn't even know it was included when I ordered their wifi adapter TL-WN722N on sale. Tried the new adapter with the cradle and wasted 3 hours trying to get the adapter working. Finally tried in same system as first adapter. Was the cradle. Should have known, nothing is never free!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZyXEL PLA4205KIT 500 Mbps Gigabit Powerline Wall-Plug Adapter Starter Kit
Pros: Fit any elect plug
Plug N play
Cons: Doesn't meet stated performance
Other Thoughts: Read the reviews of different brands. ZyXEL looked better. Did note some users had problems. Took the chance as needed to set up WMC video streaming from HDHR to computer in area of house can't E wire. Was using N wifi which was marginal. Installed powerline units which autoconnected to each other. One unit showing red indicator other green. Switched units (had bought two pairs) thinking one bad but same result. Tried other plugs with same slow result - speed test gave 5 Mbps DL / 3 UL. My 1/2 speed wifi N adapter gave me 21 Mbps DL. Disappoint to say the least. Will try another day or two My old Belkin wifi G router is giving me the same as the powerlines (5.2 / 3.2). If no improvement will return and try another way. Will update if something miraculous happens. Wish I could run wire like rest of house.READ FULL REVIEW
