This review is from: NETGEAR AC1750 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router R6300-NAS
Pros: -Attractive Design
-FAST, I didn't even know consumer wireless had these capabilities and I work in IT!
-Gigabit LAN Ports
-Very intuitive webUI while not being too simple (I like access to all the tweaks and settings)
-Easy firmware upgrades
-Reliable so far
-Wireless AC, making it future proof
Cons: -Very pricey
-Unusual color at bottom of unit (Yellow? Why netgear??)
-No antenna port (I like to have the option for an external antenna)
Other Thoughts: While not perfect, this is definitely one of the best routers I've had to date. And trust me, i've owned quite a few
Because I work in IT, I was thinking of just buying a business-level router because of their known reliability, but they lack certain home features i'd like such as guest network etc.
I ended up going with the netgear, and I won't be looking back!
This review is from: Kellogg’s 31130 Pop Tarts, Brown Sugar, 6/Box
Pros: Great upgrade from my stock cooler!
Keeps my core 2 quad @2.33ghz nice and cool :)
-Thermal paste was weird (Brown color, very sticky, and smelled like cinnamon) but I can get over that.
-Can be used as a liquid-cooling waterblock!! Great starting point for any cooling system
-Makes little to no noise whatsoever.
Cons: -Brown color doesn't match anything in my case
-No wires to speak of? (Maybe it's wireless)
-Still has that lingering cinnamon smell. Must have been something in the packaging
Other Thoughts: Ok, I was in Stop&Shop yesterday and I saw these. When did Stop&Shop start stocking computer parts?! Looks like Newegg has some competition
Alright, after a week of having this installed in my case it's starting to turn green. Looks like mold but I didn't think mold grew on metal/plastic parts? Really strange maybe I should take it out for a while.
This review is from: Thermaltake Massive23 LX Notebook Cooler CLN0015
Pros: -It has a slim build unlike some other laptop coolers around and is pretty much silent due to having one large fan.
-The blue LED is a plus (It matches the LED's on my laptop) and it fits my 15" lappy like a glove.
-Buttons to turn off the fan and LED's if desired
Cons: -Although the product boasts having 2 USB ports on the side you NEED to use one of the ports to connect it to your computer.
Truthfully there is only one useable port which annoyed me slightly. Just keep that in mind before buying.
Other Thoughts: I felt better buying a product from Thermaltake because I have purchased their merch before and I was not disappointedREAD FULL REVIEW
