Wavlink Aluminum 7 Ports BC 1.2 Charging USB 3.0 Hub, Charging Up to 5V/2.4A, Individual Power On/Off Switches and LEDs with 48W Power Adapter For Macbook, iPad, iPhone, Laptops, Tablets, Mobile, etc.

Pros: I like the idea of each port having an on and off button. The Hub has an excellent quality power adapter. Had no issues with it when using External Hard Drives.(was only using one or two at a time) Works Great on OS X and Windows Charges Devices Pretty fast when using the power adapter. Nice rubber feet to keep the hub from moving. High-Quality material.

Cons: The only thing I didn't like about the hub is it comes with a short cable for the computer. At first, it was a little confusing to understand if the power switches were on or off. Very Slow Shipping

Overall Review: I would highly recommend getting this hub if you are just needed a hub for extra ports. In the past, I have contacted support and support is fantastic and helpful. I would also like to see different colors of this hub too. Overall I enjoy this hub, and just like the title, this has replaced my 4-year-old hub.

Linksys E2000 Wireless Router Selectable Dual Band Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz up to 300Mbps

Pros: It was very easy to set up. Has a nice easy program to use.

Cons: In about 2 months I started having problems with it. It was making my internet very slow. It got to the point were it had to be reset every week. Had to fight Linksys to replace it. There support was no help they told me to do things that I done many of times. The signal is very low. You can be in the next room by it and you have half of signal.

Overall Review: One thing is I will never buy another Linksys Router ever again.

Works Great Must Use The Included Driver

USB Wifi Adapter - USB 3.0 Wireless 1200Mbps Dual Band 2.4G/5G Wireless Lan Network Card Dongle with High Gain 5dBi Antenna IEEE802.11ac/n/g/b For Desktop Laptop PC - Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10,Mac

Pros: I’ve been using this WiFI adapter for some time now. I’ve mostly used this adapter on my gaming computer, and it has performed better then I expected. I do highly suggest you install the drivers from the disk or go online and download the driver. Once you do that, then you will be all set to use this adapter. Doing everyday tasks this is a suitable adapter. It will pick up devices reasonably far away. Now you don’t have to have it plugged into a USB 3.0 port if you don’t want too, it will still work great with USB 2.0 you won't get the full speed out of the adapter. For me it’s not that big of a deal, I mostly only need that speed when doing local network transfers. Now for gaming, you should always use a wired connection, but this adapter works pretty well, compared to others I’ve used in the past. But also wireless technology is getting better. So you shouldn’t notice that big of a difference with your ping. I would highly recommend this adapter if you need an excellent powerful WiFi adapter.

Cons: The only issue I have is with the drivers. The Plug and Play driver Windows uses for this adapter is terrible. That is why I say you have to use the included driver on the disk or download it from their website. Other then that, the adapter gets hot very fast.

Works Great For Data Backups!

Wavlink USB 3.0 to SATA Dual Bay External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5"/3.5" SATA I/II/III HDD SSD with Offline Clone & UASP, 2 USB 3.0, 2 Fast Charging Port, SD & Micro SD Card Reader, 2 x 16TB
Wavlink USB 3.0 to SATA Dual Bay External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5"/3.5" SATA I/II/III HDD SSD with Offline Clone & UASP, 2 USB 3.0, 2 Fast Charging Port, SD & Micro SD Card Reader, 2 x 16TB

Pros: If you do a lot of computer work, then it is something you need to get. I’ve used it for about 2 to 3 weeks, doing my monthly backups and I have to say, it performed great. Now, I haven’t tried the offline cloning; I’m not real sure I trust it that much to do that. But that wasn’t why I wanted this docking station. What made me interested in it was the fact you a plug two drives in at the same time and access them, and it has extra ports on it that you can use for IO for your computer. However, when using the device you will notice the fast speed of the USB 3.0, but do keep in mind that If you are copying data to two drives at once, then you will see about half the speed. However, it’s not noticeable when you are copying small files. However, it is nice to have two extra USB ports and micro/standard SD Card slots. If you want to charge your phone, it has two high powered USB ports for charging. Overall, this is a nice dock if you do many data transfers or have to access bare hard drives a lot!

Cons: The only issue I have is something when you plug a drive into the dock you have to restart the dock. I have only used this dock with MacOS so it could be something to do with that. Another thing I don’t really like is it would have been nice to be able to use the charging ports as regular USB 3.0 ports too.

Easy to Set Up and Fast

Wavlink WL-WN579X3 AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Range Extender WiFi Repeater With Dual Gigabit LAN Port and 4 High Gain Antennas, Wireless AP / Range Extender / Router 3 Modes, WPS, Wall Plug
Wavlink WL-WN579X3 AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Range Extender WiFi Repeater With Dual Gigabit LAN Port and 4 High Gain Antennas, Wireless AP / Range Extender / Router 3 Modes, WPS, Wall Plug

Pros: I have wanted to get a WiFi extender for a while now, and since I’m moving my room across the house, I wanted an easy way to get at least a wired connection in that room. So I decided to pick this extender up, what I liked about it was it had Gigabit Ethernet ports on it. It only has one you can use to extend your network, wish there was a setting to change that. But the setup was very easy. All you have to do is connect to the network the extender is broadcasting and go to the address that is on the back of the unit. Once you are there the setup wizard will walk you through the process of setting up it up. Once it gets to the point where it asks you if you want to set the extender up as a Network Gateway (Which is recommended) or a Bridge; I had to set up mine with a bridge, so I would be able to access my server which is on my network. With my internet speed not being the fastest, I noticed no slow down when connected to the extender. However, the only slow down I noticed was when accessing my server, If I’m directly connected to the network with or without Wi-Fi, I can get about 800 megabits a second, whereas when I’m connected to the extender, it gets about 700 megabits. Not the significant change and I will be able to survive with it. Overall, if you are wanting and WiFi extender I would recommend this one to anyone that is wanting one, it’s decently priced and performs very well. The range of this extender pretty decent. I can access it from the other side of the house if I wanted to.

Cons: The only issue I see that could arise is you will probably never get any firmware updates for this unit.

QICENT® 5-port 39 Watt Usb Desktop Super Charger with Detachable Power Cable with OTG Port Support USB TO USB Data Syn Port for Iphone, Ipad Air 2, Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge (DO-5U-US-BW)

Pros: Fast Charging Smart Charging Technology 2.4 Amp Ports Comes With Micro USB Cable

Cons: The OTG Technology needs to be explained more in the manual.

Overall Review: Are you in need of a nice USB Charger? Well you may what to take a look at this charger. Plus, this isn’t just a USB charger. This charger has OTG technology that allows you to have a flash drive or external hard drive plugged in to the charger where you can save or read data off of it if you have a Windows 8 Device or Android device. But the manual that comes with the device doesn’t really explain the technology. Other than that the charging ports on the charger has smart charging technology where it detects how fast to charge your device and protects the device from overcharging. And all charging ports on the device are 2.4-amp charge ports. Overall the charger works great. It has charged every device I’ve thrown at it. I would really recommend this to anyone that needs a nice charger. One thing I wish Qicent would do is make the manual better explain the OTG technology.
