Samsung Level U Pro Wireless Headphones Black - EO-BN920CBEGUS

Pros: - works great with Samsung devices - awesome sound quality - vary comfortable - long lasting battery - love the controls on the headset

Cons: - I have a big neck, and when i'm working out it sometimes bothers me to have something around my neck, but that really isn't specific to these head phones

Overall Review: - great product and a great price

Most Critical Review

No ryzen 5000 support

ASRock X570 EXTREME4 AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X570 EXTREME4 AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It was one of the cheaper x570 boards that looked good. That's where the pros stopped

Cons: TL;DR ASRock spent most of their time being the first company to get 5000 cpus working on b450 and not enough on x570. Their support is not good, buy a different brand! I bought this board for my 3700x because I looked the look and the price. It did an OK job with the 3700x but after watching some reviews I found that it was in a no man's land for price and features. The cheaper boards offered the same features and the more expensive ones offered more. Now that ryzen 5000 is out I was very excited (I even got my hands on one) to drop it in after a bios update! Which it should have been a super easy upgrade... That was not the case! After I updated the bios and installed my 5600x it turned on (no video), I wasn't to worried because ik ryzen cpus sometimes tame up to 5 min of powering on and restarting for them to finally come up... It did this boot loop for 30 min and I new something was wrong. I then installed the 3700x back and it fired right up. I thought OK maybe I should try the oldest bios that supports the 5000 series. So I but a slightly older bois on and swaped cpus again to no luck... Same thing. I tried a 3rd bios and same thing. 3700x still works no problem. I emailed support and after 2 days they emailed me the generic list of things to try... Like make sure the power cables are connected... Only try using one ram stick... Disconnect everything that's not needed on the mobo... Like did they even read the ticket! It's working with the 3700x. I email the teck back and tell him again that the 3700x works so everything else is good (I did also try many different things like ram and disconnecting everything already). He replied with maybe the 5600x is bad take it back and get a different one..... Like what is he thinking, how often is a cpu doa and why is that my second step. I emailed him back with that's not an option (even if they were in stock). He never emailed me back.... ASRock support sucks! I tried my 5600x with a competitors x570 motherboard that was my friend's (used bios flash back with the 5600x installed! So nice) and it work right away after the bios update.... So it's not my cpu. I just went out and bought an competitors b550 and did the same thing and it works great. I'm glad ASRock spent time to be the first company with b450 support for ryzen 5000 because they didn't spend that much time on x570 support. I won't ever buy ASRock again.

Overall Review: Bad company, bad support, over priced board

5 Bars all over the house!

NETGEAR Orbi Ultra-Performance Whole Home Mesh WiFi System - fastest WiFi router and single satellite extender with speeds up to 3 Gbps over 5,000 sq. feet, AC3000 (RBK50)
NETGEAR Orbi Ultra-Performance Whole Home Mesh WiFi System - fastest WiFi router and single satellite extender with speeds up to 3 Gbps over 5,000 sq. feet, AC3000 (RBK50)

Pros: - Amazing coverage of our whole home! - Incredible speed through out the whole house - Easy to set up, but you also have advanced features like VPN

Cons: - Not Netgear's fault but the box came dented and looked like it had been dropped once or twice, but every thing worked good

Overall Review: My home isn't huge but our internet comes into the house in the basement and we have an L shaped house... and the internet connection is in the far foot of the L. the worst spot to put a router. we have tried a few things, bought the Netgear nighthawk, and while that was an amazing router and I loved it (and still recommend it) we noticed that coverage was at 2 to 3 bars in our second level (3 floors up from the basement) and after a year or so started to drop signal ( I wouldn't say its the routers fault. there are many walls and a microwave). We also tried a range extender which gave us Wi-Fi upstairs but it didn't support any advanced features like port forwarding. This product is perfect for our situation. we now get full 5 bars up stairs and on Wi-Fi can get the max speeds that charter gives us! 65mbs down and 6mbs up! now my whole family and watch Netflix in full high definition and not have to buffer no matter where they are in the house. I also like the Ethernet ports on the satellite unit so you could put it by your living room TV and all your devices there can connect with an Ethernet cable! While being easy to set up for any one, it also is capable of advanced features like VPN, so when I'm on the go I still have security and can access my network. I am 100% in love with this product.

Power for Days!
