This review is from: Google Wifi (3-Pack) - Complete Home Wi-Fi System (NLS-1304-25)
Pros: - 100% Seamless handoffs from one zone to another on client devices (phones/tablets/laptops), includes seamless hand-offs during wifi/voip phone calls on phone
- Excellent price
- Fast routers
Cons: None that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: I just got a Google Wifi 3 pack and couldn't be happier. Setup was so surprisingly easy it was a pleasure to go through the process. I now have signal in all areas of my multi-level home and for the first time I can move from all areas of the house with my phone (Samsung GS7 edge) on a VOIP Wifi call and it not disconnect. Hand-offs are truly 100% seamless. Two of the Pods are currently connected via ethernet to my 1gb home network and one that is connected wireless (will be hardwired soon). This product actually does deliver seamless hand-offs which before required more enterprise level equipment and at a price point that beats everyone else out there. I don't normally write reviews but had to on this one. Google has scored a major win with this product release!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Addonics AD2SA3GPX1 PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) 2 Ports Controller
Pros: - Got lucky that this card works with my Addonics Sata port multiplier. (which I had to figure out ON MY OWN as Addonics tech support told me the AD2ES6GPX2 card would work fine but did not.)
Cons: - SATA port broke right off when trying to plug in my SATA cable. Never in all my years of working with computers have a seen a SATA port break, EVER. CHEAP construction/materials and Addonics told me tough luck go pound sand when I messaged about exchange.
- This was actually the second set of cards I ordered as the original type would not work properly with my Addonics SATA port multiplier (Even after my checking with Addonics tech support ahead of time) I ended up having to figure out on my own that I needed a card with SIL chipset to match the SIL chipset on my Addonics mulitpliers to get full 100% interoperability. And in returning the cards that didn't work, they are making me pay a 15% restocking fee, on a purchase made on THEIR incorrect guidance. Simply Unbelievable!
- I purchased my cards direct from Addonics figuring I would buy from them since they gave the direct support. BIG MISTAKE!
Other Thoughts: DO NOT buy from Addonics directly as if you do have a problem they will stick it to you regardless of the reason. Buy from a reputable retailer so you have some sort of consumer protection. I've owned Addonics cards like this for a long time but I am done with them after this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nicely made product. Very, very fast and the built in fan auto turns off when harddrives are turned off. Updating this review (4/6/16): Found that it even works with my new WD 8tb helium drive so it would almost appear that this dock does not have the limitations of others that I have owned in the past where they are made to work with drives up to the largest drives of the time. My old Thermal takes would work up to 2tb but this StarTech looks to take anything you throw at it! This is one for sure you definitely appear to get what you pay for.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
