Great Fan that Pushes a lot of Air
Pros: Moves a lot of air, a convenient remote, and can put it on the wall
Cons: Noise can be an issue with some
Overall Review: I had purchased this fan as a replacement for the Vornado that I have had for a while, unfortunately it had finally died and I wanted something similar to it. It does work great, however the noise is quite a bit more noticeable on low and it is a little bit too loud for the room I have it in. If its in a large room, it will not be loud, but if you are in a small 180 square foot room, it may be a little to noisy for some. All in all though, I would recommend this item as it does provide strong air movement, and its a lot less expensive then the higher cost of a Vornado.
Where do I even start?
Pros: Works great when it feels like it.
Cons: Constantly disconnects Constant Ping Lag Refuses to have more then 2 Windows 8.1 computers on it for more then a couple of hours then it stops working and I have to restart it.
Overall Review: This router works great when it decides that it wants to work. I am always having problems with disconnections and lags that its not worth dealing with. We bought 2 of them, one from Newegg Flash and the other from another site. They have both have their share of issues and I am completely annoyed with both. One is being used at my parents house, and we are constantly having issues with 2 of the computers fighting each other for the connection and have no idea why since its something we have never seen. They are both using Windows 8.1 so I am not sure if this is the issue, but the darn things kick each other off if both connected after a couple of hours, then when we try to connect them both again, the router freezes until we disconnect both computer from it and then the connection refreshes itself and we are able to connect only one at a time after a couple minutes from each other. Sometimes this happens after a couple hours, then other times it will happen within seconds. The 5ghz range is terrible on that one and I can't even use it in the bedrooms. Yes I realize that the range is shorter, but the one I use in my apartment is able to connect to my computers just fine and they are much farther from the router and another floor up. The one I purchased for myself worked perfectly for a while, then it started kicking me off the 5ghz until I updated. Once updated, it then started lagging out and when I would be in any of my games, it would DC from my games for about 30 seconds, and then would lag bringing me to a ping of about 400. I unplugged it since I was so frustrated with it and went back to using my old router. After not using it for a while, I decided to try using it again, and go figure it works okay, but after a couple days, people are unable to connect to the 2.4ghz part of the router and we have to unplug and restart the router. I have seen other reviews so I guess I can't be surprised that I am suffering from some of the same problems as others. Honestly though, I can't recommend these at all. With the problems I have had with both, which shows its not an isolated problem, I just can't say anything positive for the problems I am experiencing with the small amount of time of owning them. When I first bought them, I thought that they were both AWESOME routers, then after a couple months, its like they break themselves down and decide that they don't want to work anymore. What a waste of money this was.
Almost lasted a year...
Pros: - LEDs looked and worked great with my motherboard
Cons: - Won't last long
Overall Review: I bought this to get some extra air movement as well as some extra LED's in my case. It worked great and then developed a tick after maybe 11months in and somewhere down the line leaked fluid on the fan blades. About 2 weeks after that, the whole thing stopped working. It looked and worked great for the year but now it's just a paperweight. If I had left my computer on 24/7/365, I could maybe understand but I maybe run my computer 4 hours a day 5 days a week and I am done.
Great Product with Short Lifespan
Pros: Moves air, quiet, color is great.
Cons: Extremely short lifespan
Overall Review: I purchased 2 of them from a local electronic store, and after only 4 months, one of the fans started making a sort of grinding noise, after feeling the back next to the motor, I can tell that the rubber grommet that holds the bar that is connected to the blades is pushing through. Unfortunately this has happened with the second one 5 months later.
