ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2 manufactured recertified
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: works out of the box, both windows xp and 7. signal strength varies less than old laptop's built-in wifi. signal isnt any stronger, but does seem to drop out less often comparatively. includes a usb extender cable, which is stiff and will hold whichever shape you bend it to.

driver utility software provides a wealth of info about the wireless connection, has diagnostic functions, can scan for other APs in the area and can save different connection profiles

Cons: usb extender cable appears to not work at all. either mis-wired, or has a loose connection. doesnt work with the wireless adapter, doesnt work with flash drives or other usb devices lying around.
this is too bad, because the usb-n13 is a bit thicker than your average thumb drive or usb plug, and WILL block adjacent ports.

Other Thoughts: router only goes up to G, so cant try it out at N speeds. drivers were a bit finicky to install on xp, (used the Version utility package from the asus site).
a [working] usb extender is a must-have with this unit if you have two usb ports stacked vertically next to each other.

Koss KTXPRO1 Stereo Headphone

4 out of 5 eggs cheap sound, without sound cheap 06/09/2012

This review is from: Koss KTXPRO1 Stereo Headphone

Pros: not an audiophile by any means, sounds decent, reasonably comfortable for long duration wear. doesnt jam glasses frames into your temples. good all-arounders, tv movies music games, you name it

Cons: lasted about 9 months before one of the speaker wires came loose inside the jack

Other Thoughts: speakers sit slightly forward on the ears, so it mostly sits on the side of your head, rather than pressing your ears flat, but loses a little richness of sound for it, mostly in the bass frequencies

Kaz GF56 Personal Chillout Compact/Desk Fan

5 out of 5 eggs great little desk fan 05/25/2012

This review is from: Kaz GF56 Personal Chillout Compact/Desk Fan

Pros: moves a fair volume of air and at a brisk pace too. doesn't sound like a jet turbine spooling up for takeoff.

nice if you're in a college dorm room, small bedroom, and/or don't have a window AC unit, wont keep you awake on hot summer nights if you leave the fan on to blow cool air in (your mileage may vary on that point)

Cons: color scheme might not be the most appealing aesthetic, lime green and silver (more of a light grey, no metal flake in the plastic) probably wont fit in with a lot of decor (dorms being a possible exception.)

Other Thoughts: bought this fan to replace an aging, very-long-in-the-tooth Duracraft DT-73 model, which is an almost identical style. sole difference is the dt-37 has a little 2-position rocker wheel on the back foot-peg, which allows a little bit of vertical adjustment for the air stream. this fan lacks such.

as a bonus, being 13cm front to back (excluding the conical switch on the front), can do double duty and be used up against a computer case with the side panel off for additional ventilation, which is nice for warming up a cold room on a winter day, or helps keep your computer cool when it's really hot out.
