This review is from: SIIG 4-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hub, model # JU-H40E12-S1
Pros: This device works well enough without the power adapter. That is what I wanted, because I wanted a hub that would just give me a few more feet. Now I can route my gamepad and joystick wires so that they won't clutter my desk. It also has a sturdy USB 3.0 type B adapter instead a USB 3.0 micro adapter.
Cons: This device interferes with my Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse. If it is under 4 inches away from the little antenna, it will cause missed keystrokes, delayed keystrokes, delayed mouse movements and so on.
Other Thoughts: I wish upon wish there were hubs that had a mixture of type A and type C adapters.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 10-bit color IPS AdaptiveSync panel. Goes from off to full on in under 3 seconds. Excellent colors. The default brightness was too bright, a good problem to have. Audio through DisplayPort and HDMI works. Changing resolutions is seamless; there is no flicker or delay. Considering that some games are resolution limited this is a big deal. I did notice a difference in picture quality from a 4K movie to a 1080p movie.
Cons: The controls are sensitive and un-intuitive. Changing inputs is not quick or easy. I thought about getting two of these and use the second as a double my TiVo mini. But there was no quick way to change inputs, especially since the front buttons are annoying. An earlier review wrote about eye problems. I was worried about that since I have ultra sensitive eyes, I cannot watch 3D movies with getting terrible headaches. The only problem with my eyes is the panel was too bright by default.
Other Thoughts: I was considering this or the Samsung U28E850R, the European version of the U28D590. I almost bought the U28E850R even though it is a TN panel because it supported 10-bit color and a rear soundbar. Then I saw a review which said this panel was a 10-bit color panel too, and decide to go with this one. The only problem with 4K panels is that Windows 7 doesn't have proper DPI scaling. What are my choices? Aero-hating, privacy-hating, subscription-loving Windows 10. No thank you. Finally, be sure to turn off FreeSync unless you have a FreeSync video card. (I don't yet. Waiting for the next generation AMD video card next year.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of settings means lots of customization. If you need two subnets, need them to be separated from each other, and need different restrictions to each subnet, this is the device for you. Third party router firmware, like DD-WRT, just can't compare for all those features.
Cons: Lots of settings means lots of complication. Be prepared to study, research, and test. And each test requires a restart which requires 4 minutes of wait until it reboots. Also, sometimes the device just stops working. You'll have to unplug it for a long time, as in several hours, before it will start working again. Keep a backup router handy for such down times.
Other Thoughts: If you don't want a separate wireless access point and need a firewall router, this is your best choice.READ FULL REVIEW
