Most Critical Review

SO SO FOR THE PRICE

AVerMedia PQUICKPLY QuickPlay PC/Mac-to-TV Converter
AVerMedia PQUICKPLY QuickPlay PC/Mac-to-TV Converter

Pros: Let me 1st start by stating what I’m using this for. I use it for watch movies and video from my laptop to TV without having to burn DVDs. Video out is good but not great. Dark colors/images tend to look blocky or pixelated. Movie subtitles are blurry and a little hard to read. This would be great for presentations. As long as you understand that what’s on your monitor isn’t going to look as good on a TV or projector this is a good product.

Cons: Set up is easy but it doesn’t come with much in the way of instructions. Company’s website is not much help. Doesn’t support audio, you'll have to either use your laptop/desktop speakers or plug your audio out to your TV with a separate cable (3.5mm plug to RCA {red/white} plugs).

Overall Review: Newegg’s price on this is the best. Newegg is well under the Manufacture Suggested Retail but I still think the product is overpriced for what it delivers. [I still <3 Newegg, thanks for the fast shipping as always]

A Very Basic Unit at a Good Price

AGPtek CH3-BD In-Dash SD/USB Car MP3 Stereo Radio Player
AGPtek CH3-BD In-Dash SD/USB Car MP3 Stereo Radio Player

Pros: This is perfect if you want to update that old cassette player and do not need CD playback. This is a Car Radio and MP3 player only. It DOES NOT play CD or DVDs, (but who still uses them anyways?) I am not 100% sure what file formats it supports but I have played many MP3 files in various bit rates and encoding and have had no issues. Controls and Settings are Very basic, treble, base, EQ on or off (you cannot adjust it) etc. Install was easy and the wired audio jack input is nice.

Cons: Button layout could be better. One thing I do not like is the Display is covered in shiny clear plastic that makes it hard to see in sunlight. Multi-color LCD display colors cannot be changed. Also it does not seem to retain all settings after you turn off the car. It will keep your place in the song but some of the settings such as if you want it to display track number or song title it will change back to default. This product cannot be found on AGPteks website so don’t think you’re going to get much support for it.

Overall Review: It works fine and I’ve had it for over 6 months but do not think this is high end.

ASUS RT-N12 SuperSpeedN Wireless Router Open Source DDWRT Support IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n Manufacturer Recertified
ASUS RT-N12 SuperSpeedN Wireless Router Open Source DDWRT Support IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n Manufacturer Recertified

Pros: -Worked fine out of the box (at 1st) -Price -Included software is user-friendly and good for a novice -Decent range & signal strength -Supports Tomato if that’s your thing (I am reviewing it with the newest Asus firmware version 2.1.1.1.78)

Cons: -after a few weeks it started to drop connection requiring a reboot/power cycle every so often. -comes with firmware (2.1.1.1.46) that is over a year out of date.

Overall Review: I would recommend updating the firmware right away especially if you have any issues. According to Asus the new firmware fixes a bunch of speed, compatibility, and stability issues. Even with the newest firmware and using the default setting I am having issues. It worked fine at 1st but now the Wi-Fi connection drops. Having to power cycle the router ever is one reboot too many in my book. A router should work 24/7/365. Turning off "Wireless Multimedia Extensions" (WMM) in the advanced "professional" settings of web interface seems to help. Some people have reported slow speeds with this router; I have not experienced this issue myself. - This is the RT-N12/B1 and not the RT-N12. The RT-N12/B1 is a newer model; the RT-N12 is older and uses different firmware. They both look the same. Other than that I’m not 100% sure what the else difference is but I’m mentioning this as this might be important to you.

Pros: Easy to uses, adjustable legs, quite, and great price thanks to newegg.

Cons: On/Off button could be on the side instead of the back. Could have better fan coverings

Overall Review: The ‘pink’ is more pastel than what I was hopping for. Could be a bit more vibrant.

OneTouch

Maxtor OneTouch III Mini 160GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive R01E160 (STM901603OTABE1-RK)
Maxtor OneTouch III Mini 160GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive R01E160 (STM901603OTABE1-RK)

Pros: Fast and quiet.

Cons: I’m not really digging the s/w that came with it. It’s kind of pointless

Overall Review: I like that it doesn’t need an extra power cord, it just powers itself from the USB ports.
