This review is from: EDIMAX BR-6258n IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless Broadband Nano Router, Small Size Easy To Carry, With WAN & LAN Ports Supported It Also Works As Wireless Adapter To Turn Wired Network Device Into Wireless Connection
Pros: Extremely small
Can be USB powered
Offers good wireless security
Cons: Instructions are pretty much unintelligible. They offer no procedural instructions on how to get the repeater mode to work properly. I had to google for the model number and repeater to find a set of instructions that finally worked for me.
Other Thoughts: Here are the instructions, for your future reference. http://www.edimax.us/html/Faq/BR6258nUniversalRepeater.pdf Best if you reset the device first. Also discovered as a repeater it cannot have the same ssid as the source - I guess that's a feature for the expensive models.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Directions are clear and easy to understand.
Mounting bolts are huge - so there's no fear of them coming out of the studs.
It even comes with a level!
Took about 40 minutes total to get it all set up and adjusted the way we want it. No issues so far with our 47" LCD screen.
Cons: My only concern is that you could theoretically still slide the television off the mount sideways if the mounting bolts weren't in the way.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Infrared Halogen Convection Oven R-HCO-11001
Pros: Works well, easy to set up and clean, portable!
Cooks food from frozen just as fast as you'd cook it from fresh.
Ensures all around done-ness with the convection fan.
Roasts veggies and makes delicious meat dishes with crispy outsides.
I can take the unit outside so I don't run up my A/C bill.
The cooking area is very generous - you can cook a whole chicken or small turkey in this thing.
Cons: Heats up a lot - you can instantaneously feel the heat radiating from this thing the minute the heating element turns on. While that's good for cooking, it also heats up the room it's in. To avoid this, I take the unit outside and cook on my deck so I don't run up my A/C bill. In the winter, however, this will be a nice perk.
The temperatures on the dial are converted from Celcius and are very weird (not the usual 300, 350, 400, etc - its more like 315, 387, 413) and the guide times and temps are based on celcius, even though the dial is in Fahrenheit. Takes a bit of getting used to.
Other Thoughts: My parents have had a brand name oven like this for almost 2 decades. When I saw this item on sale for under $50 I had to have it. Rosewill has always had quality products, and this is no exception. I just hope that this one lasts as long as the brand name. So far so good.READ FULL REVIEW
