Wavlink 4 Ports USB 3.0 Hub with LED Indicator High Speed USB 3.0 4 Port Hub Splitter Up To 5Gbps, Plug and Play, Security&Portable For iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, MacBook, Mac Mini, PC, Laptops

Pros: - pretty sturdy construction. - USB 3 speed correct - low price - 4 ports is enough for most people

Cons: - way too short cable if not use for a laptop - very bright blue light - not powered by external source

Overall Review: It is a very decent USB hub with great pricing. Feel quality component. It works at USB 3 speed. There is no power supply included but that is normally only required for older portable hard disks. For a desktop, the 6 inches cable is ridiculously short and will require an extension probably. The other gripe is the brightness of the power ON light even with the PC power off. It may become an annoyance during the night. I simply use some electric tape to leave only a small opening. Longevity is unknown but for that price, it is so far a good deal.

Most Critical Review

Usable tablet at very good price.

iRULU X1S 8 Inch Tablet PC Android 5.1 Lollipop 800*1280 IPS HD Display, 1+16GB Quad Core GMS Certified Tablets
iRULU X1S 8 Inch Tablet PC Android 5.1 Lollipop 800*1280 IPS HD Display, 1+16GB Quad Core GMS Certified Tablets

Pros: Pretty cheap (on special below $100 CDN). Surprisingly good screen (1280x800 IPS) for a tablet of that price, 8 inches, bright and readable. Screen protector included. Lightweight. Micro-SD and HDMI output. Few bloatware with full compatibility with Android 5. Decent performance and HD films play perfectly. Web browsing is very correct. Didn't try games, as I don't care.

Cons: Very basic case, cheap plastic and poor assembly. Puny unique speaker which need to be left at maximum all the time. Terrible cameras (as expected). Battery life is quite short (have to test it more). Fingerprints magnet.

Overall Review: This not a high end tablet by any means but for that price you do get a decent, usable tablet for everyday usage (if everything works). Quality control is weak as mine had the left side bulging. I could see the inside of the tablet. Pushing it in mostly fix it. Durability is unknown and suspicious. Will be a nightmare if you have to return it to the US. Very long delivery time (close to a month). While the tablet was sent quickly by the company, they use USPS to Canada. The tracking number become useless. Probably the problem is with Canadian customs. IRulu need storage facilities in Canada to be competitive in this world's 48 hours shipping time.

Fine power supply

EVGA 600 BR 100-BR-0600-K1 600 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Non-Modular Active PFC Power Supply
EVGA 600 BR 100-BR-0600-K1 600 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Non-Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: - excellent pricing (especially on special) - robust construction - output overload protection circuits - recognized brand - braided wires for the high power ones

Overall Review: I got it on a good special. 600 watts is superb. Looks fine and works alright, so far. Kind of "install and forget about it". * Very fast delivery from Ontario->Montreal in 24 hours. Thanks newegg-purolator.

Excellent mat

Pros: - good price, often on special - large - covering surface is efficient and smooth. - quality mat

Cons: - no flamboyant marking. A bit plain looking.

Overall Review: Overall, a good product. If you can get it on special, even better.

Very potent router at an attractive price

Pros: - very small - good finish and design - easy setup - great price - long range

Overall Review: The router is perfect for a general use. It's very quick and easy to setup thanks to the go to basics directly. Everything advertised work fine. A note with the USB port, you have to setup an account and check the permissions. The drive won't show in the windows network manager but it has to be mount as a network drive using the name define in the utility. The router seems to handle gpt drive as it has no problem using my 4 TB/gpt drive. A great router with no apparent issues.

Surprising quality for such a low price

Pulselabz Gaming Office Mouse RGB Spectrum Backlit Ergonomic Mouse Programmable for Windows PC Gamers - Black
Pulselabz Gaming Office Mouse RGB Spectrum Backlit Ergonomic Mouse Programmable for Windows PC Gamers - Black

Pros: - good quality - 7 buttons - Hi dpi easily changed (up to 4000dpi) - rubber scroll wheel - attractive RGB design for those who like that stuff

Cons: None that I can see at this point. It is a wired mouse, not to forget.

Overall Review: For this ridiculous price, one get a surprising quality RGB mouse. I can't fault anything bad. It seems to be a publicity stunt from a new company. Hopefully it last. Beware the mouse is pretty big so large hands preferred.
