This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVY3S-16GB/RF
Cons: Both died right after the warranty expired.
Other Thoughts: Safe your time and money and do not buy it.
CORSAIR - shame on you for selling something of that low quality.
This review is from: Pantum P2502W Duplex 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi wireless/USB mono Laser Printer
Pros: That is a pretty good small wireless printer. I installed it successfully under Windows and OS X but it took some time. Note that if you run the driver installer under Windows it will actually also install your printer automatically, so once the driver is done check for your installed printers and Pantum should be there. No need for adding ports etc.
The nice thing about the printer is that is has its own web panel for configuration, which is really neat. The only thing is that you need to know the IP of your printer first, in order to use it and getting this information isn't trivial. Also without the IP of the printer it it is nearly impossible to install it under OS X.
Cons: If you think that the printer will print out an information sheet with its MAC and IP address you are wrong. The 'print netweork configuation' option available from the installer only prints out available WiFi networks without any information about the printer. In order to get the IP of the printer you have to start the driver installer again and get is from the table showing printers. Once you do that you can install the printer under OS X typing in its IP address in the IP field for LPD.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is definitely a nice-looking unit with a great set of cool features.
Cons: Performs very poorly. Leaving the wi-fi aside, the machine has problems even with routing the local Ethernet traffic. There are lost packages and temporary slowdowns even between the internal gigabit Ethernet ports in the local network! The DHCP is much slower then in other routers, to the points that some devices report time out, before even getting the IP address (even on LAN!). Machines wired to the router sporadically loose network connection for unknown reasons and rebooting the router solves the problem only for a while. Configuring this machine is a total headache. After changing any of the options the router needs to be rebooted which take over a minute. Now imagine adding 30 mac addresses to the filtering table, and you are talking about a 45 minutes job. Note that the mac filtering is done for Ethernet and WIFi so you have to add even the mac addresses of machines directly wired to the router. I spent around two hours for the full configuration, so be patient if you plan to do anything going beyond a basic setup. The unit does not have standard front lights indicating status of its Ethernet ports so you never know what is really going on.
Other Thoughts: Total disaster. If you need something really working forget about this unit and consider Asus RT-NI6 (if you don't need the 5.4GHz WiFi)READ FULL REVIEW
