This review is from: Silicon Power Touch 835 16GB Waterproof USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SP016GBUF2835V1T
Pros: Very small, come with a small ball-chain to clip to something else which is good. You'll need to attach these little guys to something else so that you don't lose them!
As a veterinary technician instructor I work in a field where I am constantly getting things wet with *ahem* shall we say body fluids from animals so it was important to get a flash drive that was water-resistant. I am happy to say these have held up great. They have gotten slobbered on, stepped on, and who knows what else and still work great, hold a lot of data. What else do you need in a USB flash drive?
Cons: The little ball-chain they come with as not as study as the drives themselves so I replaced with metal keyrings. Again, they are quite easy to lose given their small size so make sure you attach them to something!
Other Thoughts: Coworkers were impressed with them and asked me what they were so they could get their own... that speaks for itself.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've owned this router for almost 2 years now and haven't had to do much with it; it's so reliable. It was easy to set up my networks with my existing cable modem and now my entire home is networked; phones, computers, tablets, gaming consoles. I've used the wireless interface to tweak settings and also the hard-wire option and both are easy to use. I just never have to think about my router. I recommend this router to everyone I know who needs a dual-band.
Cons: The range is a little inconsistent; my "guest" network and regular network often don't show up with the same amount of bars on the same device.
Other Thoughts: There was one episode where all our speeds suddenly dropped on all our devices; upgraded firmware solved the issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: Works well, came with all the components (and then some) needed to install and (gasp!) somewhat decent directions for all the different types of CPUs this can be installed on. Fan was easy to remove and put back on and the cord length on the CPU fan plug was good.
Comes with Cooler Master-brand thermal grease - I used another brand but appreciated that it came with thermal grease.
Cons: It's HUGE. There is no way this would have fit in my old C*oler Master Centurion standard case, but luckily I was upgrading to a mid-tower AnT*ch Three Hundred Two case and had plenty of space for this beast.
While I appreciate that this is made to be used with several different CPU types, the extra components/configurations were a little confusing. I had to consult a video for my particular CPU just to make sure I was doing it right, and I'm glad I did.
Other Thoughts: I'm normally really good at figuring installs out with minimal directions in pseudo-English, but I'd recommend you look up an install video for your CPU type for this heat sink before installing it just so you have a really good idea of what you're doing before you do it.READ FULL REVIEW
