Pros: Have two of these and they work great and are able to detect the power needs of the device plugged in and adjust and charge them correctly. Don't have any Apple products but have charged Samsung phones and tablets without issue, as well as a number of other devices without any problems

Cons: None, works well.

Other Thoughts: The only thing that keeps me wondering about this and practically every other consumer electronic device out there now is that they're made in China where true quality control takes a back seat to producing something cheaply for a quick sale. Also don't know if their claims to have passed certain standards are true or not. Being suspicious of most Chinese made products isn't paranoia given their track record, and I never leave anything plugged in while I am sleeping.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11D-16GRSL

Pros: These work great in my Dell as this older laptop will only support up to 1600 at CAS 11. There are some faster chipsets available, but they weren't assured to work in this Dell. I have used G.Skill before and have never had any problems whatsoever. I bought 16 GB Simms rated at 1866 for a desktop and have them running at 2400 without any overheating or hiccups. I must have lucked out and got some chips with a lot more headroom than they were advertised as, and have been running stable for a year now.

These are well made and did the job, and the Dell proprietary BIOS picked them up and configured them on first boot without and problems. Haven't had any crashes or anything. Even though memory is expensive now, these will get the job done and tests have shown there isn't very much difference between CAS 11 and CAS 9 so why take a chance with compatibility if your system doesn't say it is compatible.

Cons: None, work great.

Other Thoughts: Sometimes the manufacturer won't specify a faster chipset as being compatible, yet folks try a faster kit and they'll work. In my case this older Dell is pretty much locked down and though I read somewhere else that someone claimed they put some CAS 9 1866 memory in one of these and it worked, I am skeptical and didn't feel it was worth the potential hassle to find it wouldn't work in mine.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Reception and Good Range 03/26/2017

This review is from: Winegard FL5500A FlatWave Amped HDTV Indoor Antenna

Pros: Bought this antenna for my father-in-law as he lives fairly distant from some of the broadcast towers in his area. This works great and brings in crystal clear reception. Be aware that you may have to play around with the placement of the antenna to find the optimum spot, however once found it performs flawlessly. The stated range is 50 miles and that is likely under the most ideal of conditions, however this is pulling in HD channels from about 32 miles away. Feel that this will last longer than some of the less expensive imported brands.

Cons: None to report.

Other Thoughts: Not really a problem, but it may take a fair amount of time to locate the best position for the greatest reception. This should be a one time thing though, and once set up just leave it there. My father-in-law has had his for almost a year and it is working perfectly.
