Wavlink AC750 Dual Band WIFI Range Extender Universal Wireless Signal Amplifier Booster Support for Repeater AP and wireless Router Modes 3-IN-1, 802.11ac, 3 x External Antennas, WPS, Wall Plug

Pros: Inexpensive, small convenient size with multiple antenna's.

Cons: Didn't work. Purchased to use as a Signal Extender. Unfortunately, this function didn't work. (This problem has been experienced by others). Reviewed instructions, Reset my Router & the Wavlink Extender etc. with no change. Multiple attempts to try to resolve the issue failed. I suspect there are Quality Control Issues in their manufacturing process.

Overall Review: Please take note: I contacted the manufacture & described the problems encountered. They offered several suggestions/recommendations & were very helpful throughout. They offered to provide a replacement or Full Refund. I opted for a Full Refund. The Rating I have left for them was for their Courteous & Friendly assistance. I would have preferred the unit to operate as advertised, but this wasn't the case.

Basic Case

APEX Vortex 3610 Black Metal / ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
APEX Vortex 3610 Black Metal / ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Mid Tower Case, (1) 120MM Case Fan.

Cons: Very thin (Cheap) metal is used to construct this case. It will bend quite easily. Rough edges - Would be nice if the manufacture used Higher Quality Materials in the construction of this case. Bottom Line: You get what you pay for. Even with the case slightly discounted as part of the bundle, I feel I paid too much. Worth about 1/2 the list price.

Overall Review: Purchased as part of a Budget Build - Came without a power supply. If I could have substituted another case for this, I most likely would have.

Good Memory

Team T-Force Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Memory (Desktop Memory) Model TLRED416G3000HC16CDC01
Team T-Force Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Memory (Desktop Memory) Model TLRED416G3000HC16CDC01

Pros: I needed memory for my Ryzen 2700x build. I did my research & found this. This memory met the specs/speed for the Ryzen Platform. Installed/recognized without any issues. I have used Team Branded memory in the past on previous builds & this was no different. Does the job without the hype & paying the additional cost just for a name.

Cons: None so far

Pros: I needed a Good Quality, Reliable CD/DVD Drive for my new system build. I conducted my research & found this one. Received/installed without any issues. So far I am satisfied with the results. I would recommend.

Cons: None so far.

Good Memory - Does the Job.

Pros: I wanted to increase the memory on my Ryzen 2700x Platform. I did the research & found this memory met the specs & the speed. Installed & the system recognized the additional memory without encountering any issues. Comparing this memory to the more familiar name brands, it does exactly the same, without paying the additional cost. I would recommend.

Cons: None so far

Does the job. Easy to install.

Pros: Does exactly what it states, provide USB 3.0 capability to your computer. This is what my older computer needed. Windows 10 automatically recognized/loaded the necessary drivers. Reasonably priced. I would recommend.

Cons: None.
