Great Mesh System8/26/2020 7:45:21 AM

Pros: - Great Coverage - Stable Connection - Consistent Speeds - Reasonable price compared to other WiFi 6 mesh competitors - Solid hardware - Web GUI has tons of configurability.

Cons: - Phone app needs some improvement as it is now nearly as good as the web gui. - Asus needs to offer these units as single packs as well. Currently they only sell these units in pairs.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this Mesh setup to anyone looking for great, consistent WiFi speeds and tons of features. This unit is tri-band that has a dedicated band just for communication between the notes. However, if you have a wired house you could do a wired backhaul and use the 2nd 5GHz band as a separate WiFi Network. I now put all my WiFi 5 devices on the 5GHz1 band and WiFi 6 devices on the 5GHz2 band. You won't be disappointed with this system and it is the best overall WiFi 6 mesh systems out right now especially considering the cost compare to its competitors.

Light, Powerful and Compact Vacuum!7/2/2020 6:47:37 PM

Pros: - Lightweight (less than 6lbs) - Comes with a decent amount of accessories - Powerful suction - Versatile - Easy storage

Cons: - Charge time of battery is long (>3 hours)

Overall Review: I got this vacuum as an everyday cleanup tool for smaller jobs. I have a Dyson DC41 for the heavy duty stuff. However, I never knew that this would flat out replace my upright. This unit gets the job done so fast, due to its weight and powerful suction, that you don't even need the upright at all. Another feature is the ability for this vacuum to get into tight spaces due to the compact head. I can get beside the bed without using the crevice tool. Another feature of this animal model is the amount of tools that comes with it. You have the Mini Motorhead, Crevice Tool, Combination Tool, Mini Soft Dusting Brush, Docking Station, etc. I definitely recommend this vacuum to anyone looking for a light, powerful, versatile and compact machine that get the job done well and efficiently.

Great Keyboard!4/14/2020 10:38:18 AM

Pros: - Aluminum finish keyboard - Keys are high quality and sturdy with nice indents and solid key travel - Can use the keyboard with 4 devices without a dongle (bluetooth required on all devices) - Can be used with multiple OS including MAC.

Cons: - Doesn't have backlit keys - Wish there was a dedicated Windows version of the keyboard

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this keyboard for a MAC user as it has the MAC OSX keyboard layout. I use on a Windows device but sometimes mess up with the locaion of Ctrl (control), Option (Alt) and Command (Windows Key). Once you get used to that, it will be like any other keyboard. Now what sets this keyboard apart for me is the ability to use it with 4 PCs. I can now just use one keyboard with my work laptop, Intel NUC and main home built Home Gaming PC. It has dedicated keys that is assignable to each device i.e. 1 - Work Laptop, 2 - Intel NUC, 3 - Gaming PC, etc. I hope they come out with a dedicated windows version with backlit keys and this would be a must buy in the market place.

Great Kit!11/29/2019 7:48:38 PM

Pros: - Compatible with my NUC8i5BEH1 (sees all 64 GB) - Able to run multiple VMs - Good Latency

Cons: - A bit pricey

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this kit for users who run multiple VMs and do video editing. Now persons with only 1 or 2 DIMM slots can have a decent amount of RAM onboard. I am sure with how tech is advancing we will have 64 GB modules soon.

Great RAM!5/15/2016 6:18:39 AM

Pros: - Compatible - Great latency and speed - Great Packaging

Cons: - Price

Overall Review: I wanted to max out the RAM capability for my Dell XPS 15. I searched around for different brands and found that Kingston had the best package and speed out there for DDR4 RAM for laptops. After replacing the RAM in my laptop I realized the latency was better than the original Hyinx RAM. I definitely recommend this RAM to anyone looking to future proof their laptop and also for anyone doing video editing.

Good Adapter7/23/2013 9:00:58 PM

Pros: - Universal - Cost - Size

Cons: - Speed

Overall Review: My connection to this adapter was via a gigabit router. Internet speed is 15 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up. However, I usually achieve 18-20 Mbps down and 2-3 Mbps up. I was curious to review this product because in recent times wireless connection has been catching up to wired in terms of raw speed but lags a bit when distance comes into play. Hence, I was interested to do a comparison of this setup vs a wireless setup. My first test was done with the main powerline adapter on the same floor as the paired powerline. Immediately, I got a connection and my connection pairing was green. A speedtest was done and I achieved 18.431 Down and 2.052 Up, which is decent and is usually what I receive. I then tested the wireless N connection from the same location (10-12 feet from router) and achieved 15.052 Down and 2.025 Up. For the other test, I moved the secondary powerline adapter one floor down in my house and repeated the above steps and I was a bit disappointed with the results. The first thing I noticed was I now got a red light pairing, which is the worst case scenario. My speeds plummeted to 5.235 Mbps Down and 2.07 Mbps Up. I am not sure if these results were due to the house being built in 1947 and the wiring is not the best but I was expecting to see at least 10 Mbps Down. I then tested my wireless N (18-20 ft from router) and I achieved 12.75 Mbps Down and 2.08 Mbps Up, which is not that bad. In conclusion, I would say this powerline performance is a mixed bag. The speed is highly dependent on how good the wiring is in your house as well as the distance between both the primary and secondary powerline. My analysis is that your performance will degrade as you move from circuit to circuit further away from the primary powerline. I hope this will improve in the near future as this a convenient way to get ethernet connection across the house. Another improvement I see necessary, is to figure out a way to use these adapters with surge protectors as most older houses have limited outlets and need them for important appliances. The cost is also a deterrent, as most wireless router switches can be had for a lower price. I recommend this product for anyone who needs wired connections across their home, to enable use of network devices without wireless capability or gamers wanting to add wired connectivity to another room on the same floor for bandwidth and latency consistency.

Great Switch6/4/2013 6:03:18 PM

Pros: - Great Latency - Easy Setup - Small footprint - Solid construction (Metal Case) - Multiple Ports to support multiple devices - Cost Effective

Cons: - Unmanaged

Overall Review: First let me start out by saying what my test devices were. The switch (TP-LINK TL-SG108) was hooked up to a gigabit router which was run from a cable modem. Three devices were hooked up to the switch (two desktop and a laptop). My aim in this review was to test for three things, (1) Ease of connectivity, (2) Speed and (3) Load capability. As I stated earlier, this switch was connected off a port on my router (Port 1) and the other end to Port 1 on the switch (TP-LINK TL-SG108). That leaves us with seven open ports for other devices. So as you can see connections were pretty straightforward. After powering up the switch all my three devices has LAN connectivity and were fully functional across the network. I then test the speed and I was pretty impressed with how this little switch had good latency. The network had no slowdowns and I was only limited by my network bandwidth which happened to be 15Mbps/2Mbps. My final test was to copy multiple files across the network through all three computers. The switch again handled the load flawlessly. I copied a 10GB movie from one computer to another, while streaming HD content via youtube. Again this was done across all three computers simultaneously. The movie maintained over 50 MB/s transfer speed and the videos streamed via you ran buttery smooth. Now let me move to the only flaw with this switch that I can think of and it's that it's not manageable. This, of course is not a surprise since the cost of this switch is pretty low. That analysis is just me nitpicking of course. This switch is perfect for anyone looking to add ports to their network or someone with a mini computer tutoring center looking to have a few desktops and printers on their network. The gigabit ports really is a plus here as you won't be bottle-necked sharing these devices on the network. The bottle-neck would only now be your bandwidth. I definitely recommend this product.

Average Product5/17/2013 7:24:15 AM

Pros: - Easy Implementation - Small Footprint - Universal

Cons: - High Latency (Laggy) - Low Sensitivity - Does not work great on some bezels

Overall Review: Before I get started I would like to include my test system. This unit was connected to a HP laptop with Intel i5, 8 GB RAM, 120 GB ssd on Windows 8 x64 Pro. I was very excited when I first received this product because I tested a few touch screen laptops on the market that are now pretty much standard on most notebooks. So I know how the touch response should feel on Windows 8. The setup is pretty straight forward as you basically just stick the magnet on the left side of your monitor's bezel (about half way) and attach the sensor to it after which you connect the usb to your computer and install the drivers with the included cd and you are on your way. Also remember to calibrate right after installation so that your touches are accurate. Now to the user experience, let me just say it was not as good as I expected. Immediately I was unsure if the unit was working correctly but I new it worked because I had just calibrated the unit. The electronic pen supplied was ok but the touch had to be very deliberate for the unit to respond. There is a little white cursor that show you that you made a selection but it takes almost a second at times to make the selection vs under 5ms for an average mouse. However I did find that the unit worked better with the tiles on Windows 8 but when switched to the desktop, the unit really struggled. In addition to the two issues (sensitivity and latency), some bezels, with the screen recessed, on laptops will cause an issue when making selections on the edges of the screen as the pen will be hard to get to the extreme edge. Although this unit has some major flaws, it is a good starting point and can save consumers major funds in the future. Instead of buying a very expensive touch screen monitor, you could turn your screen into a touch screen. Fixing the above issues would make me consider implementing this product in more environments, but for now I would not recommend it.

Good Powerline Adapter!4/13/2013 4:29:41 PM

Pros: - Compatibility - Fast pairing - Fairly Compact - Decent Speed

Cons: - Cost - Speed drops off dramatically when you move farther away from main powerline.

Overall Review: I connected this adapter via my wireless gigabit router. My connection speed is 15 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up. However, I usually achieve 18-20 Mbps down and 2-3 Mbps up. I was excited to review this product because I always preferred the consistency achieved with a wired connection. Thus, was interested to do a matchup of this setup vs a wireless setup. My first test was done with the main powerline adapter on the same floor as the paired powerline. Immediately, I got a connection and my connection pairing was green. A speedtest was done and I achieved 18.749 Down and 2.099 Up, which is excellent and pretty much what I usually receive. Next, I tested the wireless N connection from the same location (10-12 feet from router) and achieved 15.081 Down and 2.083 Up. Those were ideal results and I pretty much expected them seen that I had a green light pairing. Now to the other test, I moved the secondary powerline one floor down in my house and repeated the above steps and I was a bit disappointed with the results. The first thing I noticed was I now got a red light pairing, which is the worst case scenario. My speeds plummeted to 5.653 Mbps Down and 2.07 Mbps Up. I am not sure if these results were due to the house being built in 1947 and the wiring is not the best but I was expecting to see at least 10 Mbps Down. I then tested my wireless N (18-20 ft from router) and I achieved 12.75 Mbps Down and 2.08 Mbps Up, which is not that bad. In conclusion, I would say this powerline performance is a mixed bag.

Good Switch!4/7/2013 2:36:51 PM

Pros: - Small and Sleek - Very User-friendly - Plug and Play

Cons: - Not enough bandwidth for heavy users - Feels a bit flimsy

Overall Review: First of let me start by stating how I connected the switch. I have my ARRIS modem which goes to my wireless gigabit router and an ethernet cable was run from one of my ports on the wireless router to this On-Networks switch. I must say that it synced up immediately after connection. My expectations, these days, for a 100Mbps switch is low. However, this switch was pretty good at mutlitasking. I had a hd youtube video + 2GB video transfer and it handled it ok. The transfer of course it limited by bandwith, due to both my systems having ssds. The switch did complete all tasks successfully and that is all you can ask of a switch. My issues with this switch is pretty self explanatory as the bandwidth limitation is the main concern. The construction as stated earlier leaves much to be desired. This switch is perfect for the lighter bandwidth users who do some youtube streaming, and light file transfers. Power users who do heavy hd streaming, ftp transfers and bluray hd movie transfer would need to step up to a gigabit version of this switch to support the bandwidth need for those applications. I would recommend this product under those defined conditions.

Very Good Drive!3/18/2013 9:07:29 AM

Pros: - Very good seek times - Low power - Cool temperatures

Cons: - Could use a greater mlc ssd cache - A bit pricey - Only 5400 rpm

Overall Review: I tested this hard drive ssd hybrid on a Z68 chipset made up of an i7-2600K, 8GB 2166MHz RAM all on an Asus P8Z68 V-PRO Motherboard running Windows 8 Pro. Let me start by saying that I currently use an 2 Intel 520 180GB ssds in RAID 0 so I had to keep my expectations in check. However I was pleasantly surprised at the latency of this drive. The first test I did using HD Tune Pro was ok at best but after that it was under a ms in latency. Programs like MS Office opened instantaneously even after just the first time of opening them. Boot time was also interesting. It took 45 seconds to boot at first but after a couple reboots I was down to only 20 seconds, which is only 5 seconds slower than my Intel setup. To be fair, I did a direct comparison of this drive with a desktop 7200rpm drive with 32mb cache and let me say the results were very interesting. After one test these drives were neck and neck with both posting 87MB/s average read times. However, the seek time on the 7200rpm drive was 11.2ms while the hybrid was only 17.2ms. I guess this was attributed to the fact that the ssd advantage didn't yet take effect. By the second run the Seagate Hybrid was down to 0.262ms read time and all the results carried through all the tests I ran. Finally after all these tests the drive only went up to 93 degrees Farenheit with the room temperature being 70 degrees which is pretty good for a hard drive. Now I have to discuss some downsides to this drive. First off all, due to the fact that there is only 8GB for mlc ssd cache it fill up fast with today's programs and what happens is the oldest program in the cache gets overwritten. When this occurs the seek times take a bit of a hit as the drive is now just a 5400rpm laptop drive. I think the two areas could be addressed and improved in a new revision of the drive. This drive would be perfect for anyone who wants a combination of speed and capacity but doesn't want to spend a premium on a ssd.
