This review is from: TP-LINK RE355 AC1200 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
Pros: Literally one-button setup. All I did was plug this in, hit the WPS button on my router, hut the WPS button on the Range Extender - and BAM! done! Seriously THAT simple!
Also has a web UI for additional configuration if you're a power user (like myself).
Added gigabit Ethernet port is also a HUGE plus!
Cons: Doesn't cook me breakfast, had to find a girl to date and convince I needed regular feedings
Other Thoughts: Seriously this thing is so simple to setup, and the addition of a gigabit Ethernet port is really awesome. I'm currently using this to provide my parent's house with WiFi from across a field. The extender is 307' away inside of a barn, and the house is 168' from the barn and has full WiFi coverage.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: The sharp angular design is something like I've never seen in a computer case before, and I really like it. It reminds me of the sharp angular designs of the Combine from Half-Life 2. The biggest con is the complete lack of external bays for optical drives, along with the exclusion of a card reader when a bay for one was omitted. I hope to see corsair come out with an external 5.25 case with a built-in card reader for an optical drive that matches this design. Shopping for external cases for a blue-ray burner and card reader turns up nothing that even remotely matches the style of this case. -1 star for not being able to mount my Bluray burner, and -1 star for not being able to mount my card reader. Both things that I use weekly, if not daily - that I have to resort to my laptop for use.READ FULL REVIEW
Faster than a HDD
Cons: Only 8GB SSD
High failure rate (It's a Seagate)
Slower than a SSD
Other Thoughts: It's good secondary/storage drive for a PC with a primary SSD.
This drive is not fast enough to replace my main SSD drive. It works well for my huge steam game collection, which has always been stored on a large secondary drive in my gaming PC.
Biggest con is that It's a Seagate. For anyone in the PC repair industry, they know it'll fail in short order. Their customer service is horrid, and not worth dealing with. Many times I've RMA'd a drive, just to get a dead one back in return. I'm only going to use this for offline storage, because I've been burned too many times with Seagate drives failing in the past. If you read the reviews, you'll see these have an extremely high failure rate, which is worrisome.
